Gimbals is just wonderful and it's a shame about the location - it feels like it should have views to match the food! Never had a bad meal here, or even just an average one. The taster menu (Thursdays) is a brilliant idea and I've eaten things that I'd normally never even consider... yet found them all equally wonderful. The... More

Friends and I visited Gimbals as a Christmas party. Service was excellent and very friendly. The food was delicious and the atmosphere got us in the Christmas spirit. This is a firm favourite and one of the best places to eat in Calderdale.

Wonderful food. Excellent service and quirky but absolutely lovely surroundings. We arrived at 7.30 and sat until well after 10pm and did not feel rushed even though we were the last diners.

Used to go regularly upto a couple of years ago and never had a bad experience. Returned at my partners request and I have to say things are still as good. Not sure how anybody could fault this establishment apart from an hours wait to be seated so popular

There was nothing wrong with the food but it wasn't exciting either. Gimbals used to be a place where you knew it was going to be a treat but now it's just ok.

This really is an exceptional restaurant. Recently we have started going to the Thursday night tasting menu which is great fun. As always, the food is very skilfully cooked and the service compliments the food perfectly. Often there are some quite unusual dishes but they always seem to work beautifully. If you want the best food in the area, and... More

Had another excellent meal in this relaxing spot. Butternut squash soup to start. Beautiful succulent beef to follow. We will definitely be returning.

Absolutely fabulous restaurant. The venue is wonderful. We had cocktails upstairs and they even had a selection of spectacles so I could read the menu. The lady that took our order was lovely as were the rest of the staff. We had a good table in the smallish dining area and we're able to enjoy the other diners conversations as... More
