We only stopped for lunch but the food we ordered was tasty, the only thing that let it down slightly was there wasnt a huge range of food to choose from the menu, the chips were really tasty!

Had a great evening at Gary's. Nothing pretentious, just freshly made, awesome traditional bacon cheese burgers and beer battered chicken and chips. Did I mention that they got about 6 kinds of sauces that you can add to your burger and chips?
