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

Small intimate restaurant. Delightful staff and management. Food often varied and always well thought out menu worth revisiting as it changes often. A little quiet because there isn't much space so not ideal for more than a group of 4 I'd say. Not really expensive. Go !

My husband and I went to Gimbals for our anniversary meal a couple of weeks ago. Having lived in Sowerby Bridge for 6 years, we had somehow never got around to eating at Gimbals so thought we'd give it a go. We went on a Wednesday, and so picked from the very reasonably priced 3-course mid-week menu. My husband had... More
