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.

The restaurant had gorgeous decor and atmosphere, the meals were delicious HOWEVER, the waitress was so rude. I was telling her what I wanted and she was having trouble understanding me. I even made a joke which she must have thought I was being rude...More

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.
