The staff served canapes very tasty, drinks and took our starter and main orders. After a short wait... read more

Four of us out for our anniversary meal and we weren't disappointed. Although it's been a few years since we were here, it was just as good as we remembered. Staff are really friendly and Janet always takes her time to talk to you. Lovely varied menu, although we all ordered the same starter Ham Hock Rosti with a poached... More

We managed to get in on a Friday evening for the same evening which I was so pleased about as normally this place is booked up. We arrived and was greeted by such a friendly waiter and asked if we would prefer a drink first or go straight to our table. We chose to go straight to our table. We... More

I am kicking myself that I forgot to write this review sooner. Gimbals was always one of those places I fancied going to - but never got around to. What a mistake!!! I was lucky enough to be taken as a surprise by my other half and was quite happy when we turned up there. We had drinks upstairs -... More

We have dined at Gimbals numerous times and have always thoroughly enjoyed our food. We have had two staff Christmas parties here and even though we have been a little on the "rowdy" side by the end of the evening Janet & her staff have always been very friendly, made us welcome and happy to join in with our festivities!...

A lovely quaint restaurant, wonderful staff, interesting decor, but micro portions. The quality of the food looked much better than it tasted, it as decent, but not excellent, and the price was really too high for the quality or quantity. Abs wonderful staff though, a really good team, just have words with the chef. About the size of portions, there... More

Have been meaning to visit Gimbals for many years as it is local to us. Finally got round to going there and can't imagine why we have not been sooner. I have been fortunate to have dined in many of the best places in the world. I would say this is in the top ten! On top of this, staff... More

A good meal, good food, and signs the staff were either inexperienced, or overworked.A poor reaction from a member of staff spoiled a very nice evening.After attempting to attract the attention of a member of staff, any member, for about 15 minutes, when they then deigned to come for the sweet order, and I mentioned the fact.
