Based in the beautiful historic town of Eton in Berkshire is a restaurant, bar and townhouse called Gilbey’s. This little townhouse boasts bundles of character with seating to dine on the high street or in the secret garden! A stones throw from the river and a short walk to Windsor castle makes this townhouse the perfect getaway stay for a classic British weekend! With plenty of bars and restaurants based along the river bank, Eton is the ideal location this summer for a staycation.
The decor is warm and inviting. It being bistro in style, with a couple of tables out side on the street giving the place a rather European ambience.
The food style is best described as ‘Modern British’ with French influences.
To start we had DUCK LIVER PÂTÉ & PURPLE GOOSEBERRY COMPOTE hazelnuts, Sauternes-soaked golden raisins, toasted brioche CHORIZO & MANCHEGO CROQUETAS, PRAWN & LIME RILLETTE baby squid, sweet pepper & tomato piperrada. The presentation of both plates were impeccable and the flavours equally responded well to each other.
VisitEngland have just awarded them 5 Stars and a Gold Award for all of their accommodation which comprises of the original Studio Suite and the three new guest bedrooms in The Townhouse.
The hotel houses a handful of tranquil rooms with plush decor.
The beautiful Private Dining Room seats up to 34 guests and the charge for it’s exclusive use will be £100. Gilbey’s also have a lovely first floor Private Dining Room which is available for parties of between 10 and 16 people.
The charge for its exclusive use is £50 for up to 10 guests and £75 for 11-16 guests.
We would definitely recommend Gilbey’s as a top place to stay in Eton, the town and location of the townhouse are so ideal, you could not stay in a better spot!
