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

Visited recently with my husband on a rare night out with just the two of us. We had a wonderful evening. Service was friendly, welcoming and attentive. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We'll definitely visit again when we get the chance.

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.
