Just a quaint little restaurant in a little Yorkshire town. Its a place to go to treat yourself. The menu is very different and the taste fabulous. The service first class and the environment quaint and cosy. Highly recommend a visit for something just a bit different:)

We hadn't been to Gimbals for a number of years, partly because it's quite a long way from where we live, but decided to try it again to see if it was as good as we remembered. Actually, it was better. Fresh ingredients, imaginatively combined and beautifully presented. Excellent service completed the experience. We will certainly return.

My husband booked a table here for my birthday after we decided to try somewhere new. We weren't disappointed either, the staff were very friendly right from our arrival and it is the perfect setting for a romantic meal out. We ordered from the a' la carte menu, I had the Scallops to start and my husband had the Figs... More

We visited Gimbals on Saturday 26th July,a hot and humid evening!! The restaurant did their best with every single window in the building open! We were greeted with smiles and shown upstairs to the small but comfortable waiting room to have cocktails and drinks. The restaurant isn't large but has a certain charm to it that makes it cosy and... More

Visited on a hot and humid Saturday night, having booked a couple of hours earlier. The menus were excellent, and meals were adapted for our awkward vegetarian without any fuss. The staff were absolutely fantastic. It's nice when there's a bit of personality and our waiter made us laugh a few times. Will be back soon.

We recently celebrated our son's 40th birthday and had a large party meal here. What a great eveningwe had. The food was supurb and everyone was tasting everyone elses dishes. We just had to share our experiences with our group. Great service from the staff and everything went like clockwork. THANK YOU Gimbals for a great night out.

Even though we live over 70 miles away, we continue to come to Gimbals for special family occasions. The food is excellent and Janet & her team are so considerate in producing special menus for those with different dietary requests - and these are always inventive & delicious. The staff are exceptional, the food is amazing, and the surroundings beautiful... More

Ten of us out for a 60th birthday,absolutely fabulous. Food excellent,none of the group could fault it,vegetarians included. The service was first class,the young man who looked after us couldn't do enough to make sure we had a good evening. It was a busy Friday evening yet the ambience was perfect. Will definitely be going back.

Went to Gimbals with some friends. Overall very good. The mixed seafood starter was excellent. Would suggest the wine selection could be greater. Overall good experience and the service was attentive.
