Came here because of the good reviews. Unfortunately it took us on average 20-30 minutes to get each course. Aracini was tasty, duck confit was good. Don’t think I have the patience to come back again though.

Decided to visit the Gaslight with my wife and daughter. I had the steak, which was cooked to perfection. My wife and daughter the pasta dishes. Loved every minute, very tasty food. Then had desert which was even more delicious than the main course.

Hello there, we will unfortunately be closed for the holidays. We reopen for 2017 at 5pm on Thurs 5th Jan. I would recommend making a booking this time of year as a few places are taking a well earned break. Cheers Patrick.
