I had ticked on the reservation that we were celebrating a special event and outlined what it was. I requested a 99 ice-cream for our son. There was no acknowledgement of my request and nothing happened which was very disappointing.

Gleesons's is my local - so thank you for making me and my family comfortable, safe, and allowing for as good a dining experience as possible in these difficult times. I felt safe with the perspex and the distance between us and other diners. The staff as always, were very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Thank you again.

While the food was excellent and good value the service was non existent. We had to go look for condiments and we were not offered water. Nobody checked if the meal was OK. We ordered 2 main courses only. One side order was wrong and we reported this as it was served initially. After more than 5 minutes wait we had to go find a member of staff and ask again for the correct side order.

I visited with my elderly father for a evening meal.
The restaurant was spacious and very compatible for social distance. The ambience was very calm and refined.
The service was very professional and courteous.
The food exceed all expectations. The chicken wings were the best both of us have ever eaten. We both are Fillet Steak. The cut was melt in your mouth quality and cooked to perfection. The sides were very generous and again cooked perfectly.
The Sticky Toffee Ice cream was a first for us and it was a very big hit!. Ridiculously tasty!
Overall we both had a great experience and we will be back very soon.

I was very disappointed by the efforts made, by Gleesons, to ensure their customers were wearing masks upon entering the restaurant, or walking around it, ie to use the bathroom. While it is clear that that Gleesons have invested in plexiglass screens, visors for wait staff, foot pedals to open bathroom doors, etc, very few of the customers entering the bar/restaurant were wearing masks. Staff didn’t appear to be asking them to put on masks either. Finally, the owner/manager was quite visible walking around without a mask on.

I would be a regular customer of Gleesons in the mornings but, based on what I saw on Monday morning last, I will not be returning until I hear that customers, and not only staff, are wearing masks appropriately.

We had a lovely meal for a family birthday on Sunday evening. The food was fabulous couldn’t fault any of it. We were initially nervous as we have not been out for dinner since Covid started but decided to brave it as we had heard Gleesons had good measures in place. We relaxed straightaway, staff were attentive, table freshly sanitized, even the bathrooms have foot pedals to operate doors.
We really enjoyed our first venture out in 6 months, and we will be back!

Had a meal and pints with a friend in Gleeson's on a Wednesday night. Food and service excellent. Enough people to create some atmosphere but not too many to make it feel unsafe. Social distancing was managed very well and we had a great night. Will definitely go again.

My partner and I had a three course dinner from the set menu. The pate was delicious, both dinners and deserts were very good. The ambience when we first got seated was quite quite as it was only 5:30, but within an hour the entire restaurant was buzzing with chatter. The staff couldn’t be more friendly and we where regularly asked how our meal/stay was.

Seated at a table and told to move and stuck in the back corner of the restaurant beside the closed bar with no one around.
No atmosphere at all and hard to get a servers attention when in the back. Not allowed to go the bar which is completely fair but no one returns to the table to ask if you would like to order another drink or dessert.
Asked for the bill and no one arrived with one. After 15 minutes waiting we stood at the bar until someone finally approached us to ring us up.
