“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

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:)

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

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.

“Lovely birthday meal”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

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 which were both delicious, then for main courses my husband had the Scarborough Woof and I had the Monkfish, again both were very good, the fish was cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. We even managed to leave a little room for dessert too I am pleased to say as the Bilberry Plate that I had was lovely.
All in all it was a fabulous evening, it was a very unhurried, relaxed meal and we will definitely be going back.

“The hidden gem of Sowerby”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

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 welcoming. We had the fish platter and scallops to start with the lamb Kleftico for mains. The platter was excellent and the scallops presented beautifully. The lamb was as tender as it could possibly be and comes served in a paper bag and is piping hot a really great dish! We had the bilberry platter and strawberry sorbet both lovely and delicate dishes that didn't disappoint in any way. With a bottle of wine, pre-dinner drinks and three courses £90 was great value indeed. We last went to this restaurant around 3 years ago, glad to see its still going strong and still just as nice!!

“Top banana”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

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.
