Popped in on Sunday, about lunchtime....hoping for a takeaway, unaware that The Gem has a few outside tables.....all of which were occupied, or reserved. We ordered our takeaway food, and were asked to sit at a table to wait for our meal. We were going...to have to look for a bench somewhere to sit at and eat, but moments before our meal arrived, our lovely gentleman server let us have the table we were at, and promptly appeared with plates of food, bread and water........fabulous. My husband had pork, which was really tender and tasty...I had the chicken mix, which too was really tasty. The salad was fresh, and the bread was soft, warm and comforting. The perfect, easy and enjoyable lunch..... Thank You Gem......More

The portions were good sizes, the food was absolutely delicious, and the staff were so incredibly friendly and welcoming.
