We had been here before and really enjoyed it but for some reason this wasn't as good. Possibly because we had recently eaten in a mindblowing veggie restaurant in Prague so this didn't seem as good or maybe because we stuck in the backroom which was blooming freezing and felt being on the foodie naughty step. One factor was clearly... More

Friend in Cardiff recommended this restaurant to us. From start to finish it was an unforgettable evening. We were greeted warmly and with sincerity. The owners were cook and front of house and incredibly welcoming. The two young men serving us were without doubt the most polite and attentive waiters without being obtrusive. The food was beyond all our expectations.... More

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
