Fantastic Food & Plenty Of It, Staff Very Friendly & Very Attentive,They Helped Make It A Very Enjoyable Night, Lovely Atmosphere, Good Music ,Will Definitely Be Back.
Gumbo was just fantastic, from the 60's music & great atmosphere. Ordered deep fried veg & pickles to share as a starter - very different & delicious! Then onto the mains - l had shrimp Gumbo - which was a sensation for my taste buds - the sweet dough bread was a perfect contrast to the spicy Gumbo! My partner had steak & chips, & he loved it! ♡
Food was delicious, service first class. Plenty of drinks to choose from. Waiting staff very attentive and helpful. Excellent value for money. Will defo be making a return visit soon. Job well done team Gumbo
Service was great, food was AMAZING. Had a great time. Downside was the fact that the booking I made through Quandoo was not on their books when I arrived there. They had no record of it at all. Luckily they were not too busy and we got a table anyway but beware booking with Quandoo. I would advise phoning the place direct to make sure you get your table booked.
Great ribs, amazing cocktail (aviator). Fish and chips were very good, Gumbo was okay. The Mac and cheese side was huge and yummy. All the portions were very generous and the place had a good atmosphere. Will definetly be back.
Excellent atmosphere and amazing food. I would definately recommend Gumbo for food and a night out. Been here a few times and the staff have always been so friendly.
I've eaten here before. the steak is delicious. Just don't shake any hot sauce on your Jaleno's by accident. I almost needed the fire brigade! Catch Damian on the floor as your server if you are lucky. Very friendly guy, who has an answer for everything. Will not hesitate in returning here... great food, great service.
