Gengy’s was a fantastic venue for our Xmas dinner. We had a range of dietary issues to consider from lactose intolerance to vegetarian and a few others as well. This venue made it simple and easy so we could just relax as a team and enjoy our evening. Big thanks for being so accomodating. Clint Thorburn Bespoke Trade Solutions Ltd

We loved the food. Service was great. The only thing that marred our experience was the other diners. We realise it is not a 'fine dining' establishment so can't expect anything else, and it's certainly not the fault of the management. It is an unfortunate fact in society these days that standards of dress, behavior, and language have all deteriorated.

I have been here a number of times and have previously loved the atmosphere especially on birthdays when the staff on the hot plate get involved celebrating when the music comes on. This was not the case on Friday. Also the whole night ended on a down as we all said our last plates of food all tasted burnt with half the table not finishing the final plates because of it . Shame as it had been so good in the past which is why I wanted to celebrate my birthday here … makes it hard to want to come back when burnt food is the bit everyone talks about now :/
