This family run restaurant is famous for its wonderful eclectic food and friendly welcoming atmosphere surrounded by quirky decor.

Janet and Simon Baker opened the doors to Gimbals Restaurant in 1995 with the aim of bringing simple but sumptuous, seasonal food to the quaint Yorkshire village of Sowerby Bridge, and that remains their passion today.

The cooking at Gimbals is modern yet rustic using wild, organic, locally sourced ingredients as much as possible, which adds a Yorkshire earthiness to the fayre. They create honest dishes, inspired by both classic and more unusual flavour combinations, brought together by the skills of their talented chefs.

Janet has a flair for decor and her show stopping finds, such as an actual Blackpool illumination, help to create a seductively decadent restaurant atmosphere and a unique upstairs lounge area. Here one can enjoy artisan cocktails with friends, relax on a chesterfield with an aperitif or sink into a sofa with an after dinner coffee.

Whatever the occasion, Gimbals promises to create a truly special evening for you.
