Visited gimbals for the first time this weekend and it won't be out last... The atmosphere is excellent, the service first class and the food is scrummy! When we arrived we were shown upstairs to the lounge area for drinks and to peruse the menu which a nice relaxing touch... The menu is varied with specials too... It is not... More

Great atmosphere to spend a special Birthday meal, distinctive decorations and well worth a return visit. Started with great cocktails. All the food was amazing, squid, steaks and puddings accompanied with Proseco. Attentive friendly professional staff and reasonably priced.

Went here for a birthday meal with my family. The food was very tasty but there just wasn't enough of it! Service was great and the wine also very good. Quite expensive considering the portion sizes.

OK, corny pun out of the way. I booked an anniversary meal at Gimbals solely on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews. Risky I know, but so far I've never been let down by TA. All the same I was a touch nervous as my wife and I approached the premises, given this was a very special occasion. I... More

I have visited Gimbals on 4 occasions now and have yet to be disappointed. Nestled sweetly in amongst a row of terraced properties in the market town of Sowerby Bridge lies this inviting, twinkling window display that reeks 'come on in'. Once inside, you are not disappointed by this theatrical, if somewhat dark and mysterious interior, that to me is... More
