I've eaten here quite a few times now and have never been disappointed. It's a great quirky little restaurant, very much like being in someones dining room. The prices may be on the high side but you definitely get what you pay for. The staff are always great and the atmosphere is so relaxed none of the usual rushing you from the table stuff that goes on in other places. The menu changes on a regular basis and is not pretentious in any way. Good honest food at good honest prices

The food here is out of this world but so are the prices. Even the early bird offers come higher than the other restaurants full prices.

Eaten here many times and the food is always top notch and the service excellent. Could easily be missed walking down the street but definitely one of the better restaurants in the local area.

Please forgive the intentionally ambiguous headline - I just had to get your attention! - Gimbals has for ever been well above its station in terms of food, service, winelist and ambience, and has always bgeen worth regular visits over many years. But in recent times it seems to have upped its game considerably. New forces in the kitchen have added to the existing very talented ownership to formulate an exciting and sizeable menu of confident and well-described dishes that (with the occasional exception of plates un-necessarily dressed with balsamic reduction) deliver perfectly partnered flavours and textures. I'll not describe individual dishes, as the menu is so well written (although still with the odd glaring spelling mistake!) as to be a literary experience: food that you want to eat - to order every dish just to discover what it contains, how it's presented, what it tastes like!

Well done to the entire team, who last night despite a very busy restaurant and a small mistake with drinks spillage by a new waitress, were all on top form. Long may Gimbals continue to be probably the best restaurant around!
