Have visited numerous times with my husband and with friends and always had good service and great food. The midweek deal more expensive than it used to be but worth the treat. Lovely around Christmas when the local Brass Band drops in to perform a few carols.

On the main street of Sowerby Bridge you wouldn't expect to find a restaurant of this quality. You need to book early as seating is limited. The quality of the food is excellent with wonderful flavours. Portions are on the small side and prove very expensive for what you get.Its friendly and charming adding up to a lovely experience.

Went over a year ago, as we were given a voucher. Would not go again. Looking out on to streets of Sowerby Bridge whilst paying too much (even though we had a voucher) not all it cracked up to be. Sorry. J :-(

Visited last Wednesday and took advantage of the midweek deal, three courses for me and two for my wife. Links good value for a restaurant too. The food was really lovely and the service very attentive. Was a bit quiet at first, 7pm sitting, but it livened up after a while.

Small and intimate, friendly and charming, all add up to a lovely experience. We all had the same starter which was Tempura king Prawns, obviously it had some fancy name but I cant remember it. Very tasty. I then had Rump of Lamb on creamed potatoes, really nice, one Fillet steak also really good, Monk fish beautiful, Pheasant Kiev, all... More

Being a local I can't believe i've never found Gimbals up until now...well i'll definitely be going back. Excellent choice of food to suit most palates and all reasonably priced. The staff were very efficient, pleasant & friendly. This little place would easily "stand it's ground" even in a big city centre it's that good. Thanks for a great evening........
