The gable offers an excellent range of pub food at a very reasonable price. The food is always fresh and very tasty and the portions are big enough satisfy anyone with a healthy appetite. The staff are always friendly and the service is excellent. Well worth a visit and if you have room try the sticky toffee pudding

Went here with my granddaughter for a mother's meal yesterday. Two course, plus a glass of wine for £13.95. Food was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. Presented with a large box of chocs at end of meal. Restaurant is nicely decorated and toilets are Spotless. Will go again.

Unplanned stop for Saturday night tea time meal. Pleasant surroundings, good menu choice and quick, efficient service from pleasant staff. Premises were busy and my only negative comment is that the acoustics of the restaurant are such that any noise seems magnified.

Very friendly staff. We had fish and chips. Kids had lasagne and chicken nuggets- both homemade and delicious. Excellent value for money! We'll be back.

We came here on our first evening in Carnoustie, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Fast service and food was nice. Menu was quite small, typical English and Scottish menu and was up to a good standard, well presented and reasonably priced. The decor and layout was modern and well maintained.

The restaurant is well nicely decorated and layed out. Staff were helpful and came up with a number of alternatives for one of our party who was looking for gluten free food which were not on the menu. Thanks food was good but not outstanding. It was reasonably priced and the portions were generous.

The battered fish at the Gable is the best locally - lovely big flakes of fish and very light golden batter. Good service too.

Went here for an evening meal with family. The manager was very attentive however the lady who served us looked like she wanted to be anywhere else but there. She didn't really speak and once we'd finished our mains she only asked my children if they wanted dessert and never gave me any option of anything else. The food was... More
