Gastronomy Dark Skies Night
"organisation and food was exemplary as usual"

Thank you so much for looking after us and our guests so well at our wedding reception.  The service was excellent and your organisation and food was exemplary as usual.  Your help and efficiency went a long way in making our day very special.

"Exceptionally Enjoyable"

The effort, care and love that has been lavished on Gibbon Bridge by you and your staff is plain for all to see, experience and enjoy.  However, what we particularly wanted to record is the exceptional quality of your staff.  Your team is, without doubt, the very best I have had the pleasure to meet and to be looked after by.  I have been a corporate member of the Hotel Catering & Institutional Management Association since 1973.  Over the years I have visited and worked with numberous hotels all over the UK.  The team at Gibbon Bridge are the best of all those that I have experienced.  First and foremost, being friendly, caring and professional and, by being well trained and, importantly, well led.  You are to be heartily congratulated.
