I've been visiting Gimbals for years now and there's a reason I keep going back...I just love this place. The menu is not ridiculously extensive but what is on offer is tempting and delicious, with something for everyone and all tastes (I always find the fish dishes to be excellent or something new to.try each time I visit.) The atmosphere... More

Good staff, a lovely bit of meat and nice decor. The only fault would be, for me, the sauce with my steak was a bit tasteless but other than that it was a solid performance.

We had a fantastic meal here with friends in mid-January 2017. It's a small restaurant and the table we had was actually not large enough for four people. Let's put that aside and just say how great the food was and also the service.

Gimbals is a restaurant for the special occasion. The food is beautifully presented and imaginitive. It is essential to book in advance as tables are highly sought after. The surroundings are lovely and the staff friendly and welcoming.

How lucky are the people of Sowerby Bridge and environs to have such a brilliant restaurant! We were staying with another couple in Hebdon Bridge ( another great discovery ) last week and had such a superb evening at Gimbals on the Tuesday evening that we went back on the Thursday for another excellent meal. The cooking was innovative and... More

Visited this lovely little restaurant with my partner and daughter. I haven't been for a long time as I now live somewhere else but was hoping it was as good as it was the last time I went as my partner and daughter had never been. I shouldn't have worried. It was just as good. Still a lovely atmosphere, friendly... More

A wonderful restaurant, cosy, stylish and quirky decor with a kind of Victoriana theme; interesting, fresh ingredients and innovative recipes, and it's run by a lovely couple who love what they do and create some amazing tastes. Not the cheapest, but you wouldn't expect all this on a budget. A very special place.

On our quest to sample all the eateries in sowerby bridge we visited gimbals this week. Our choice was the taster menu which is only available on thursdays. I had a concern that a five course meal would be over facing but it turned out to be just right not too much not too little. The menu changes every week... More

We've been coming here for 10 years. The service is second to none. Food is amazing. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. For special occasions it's perfect. We're always treat like we are special yet the atmosphere is chilled and relaxed. We feel 'looked after'. Adore this place. 😍
