"Everything was met with perfection"

These few lines are written to thank you and your staff so very much for making our golden wedding meal last Saturday so happy and memorable.  Everything was met with perfection as nothing seemed too much trouble to your staff.  We will always carry wonderful memories of our celebration at Gibbon Bridge in our hearts.  Thank you so much...

"quality and class without losing the old comfortable environment."

After 44 yrs in business with continued growth and customer satisfaction my wife and I know what is required to achieve this.  For many years we have had monthly visits to Janet Simpson’s GB and restaurant for meals and the occasional stay.  We have seen how with every alteration and addition Janet has always managed to keep adding a touch of quality and class without losing the old comfortable environment.  Janet has built a business to be proud of and deserves every  praise because Gibbon Bridge as seen today would not be there without the dedication and effort that she has put into it.
