Visited Gilroys on Mother's day with a group of 12+. Very busy so food took almost an hour to be served. Pork belly and mash, and pies were good. My son enjoyed the spaghetti and mince.

Good to chill and relax. Casual. Food ok. A little pricey for this type of restaurant. If you enjoy loud and drinking vibe then this is for you.

One of a kind pub that dishes out live entertainment, great food and lots of hand-crafted beers. Go for the beer samplers, 6 or 7??, and you are encouraged to share. I think the food was good but tasting the different beers were more fun....More
