About Gilbies

Established for over 28 years and set in the heart of historic Hereford: find out more about this beautiful bar & bistro.

You’ll find Gilbies Bar & Bistro in the heart of Hereford city centre, tucked away behind the half-timbered Old House. We’ve been here in this cosy courtyard setting for nearly thirty years – and since 2016, a new team has been running the show.


Owners Rob and Hayley (and their daughter) recently returned to the area from Bristol to take on a new venture in their home town of Hereford. And they’ve made a few changes around here. Now we serve everything from tasty tapas and hand-picked wines, to hearty roasts and fresh coffee – and we’ve created a relaxed environment for you to enjoy at any time of day. 


We cater for a range of party sizes, and we're delighted to have catered for a number of wedding parties, so please call us to discuss bespoke menus in addition to our usual menus.


We've got a couple of dog bowls out in the courtyard so you're welcome to bring your dogs into the bar area.
