Private Dining

We can do any occasion, for any day of the week, for any time of day, to suit you.

We love hosting events at Gimbals, whether it be 12-70 guests enjoying a casual get together or a serious full on food extravaganza! 

For each event, we dress the table with fresh, greenery & flowers for you to enjoy often by candle light & of course, you will be accompanied by our wonderful eclectic music playlist!

We absolutely love cooking with seasonal, local, wild ingredients from sky, land & our wonderous seas. 


The pre-order & Tasting menus is £48.00 per person. Both the standing & sitting Small Plates menu is £40.00 per person. The price includes the meal & room hire.

We do offer bespoke menus at an extra cost that is to be discussed during the planning of the event.

A non-refundable deposit of £20.00 per person is required to confirm a booking.

Rooms & Numbers

We have 2 main spaces available for booking, however, this does change depending on the amount of bookings in the building at the time.

We have the Lounge (Upstairs) which sits 12-16 people. The space is split into 2 sections, a cosy pre-dinner drinks area & the dining area. 

The downstairs room is more suitable for larger numbers, the space can sit 12-36 people. Again, this is split into a reception & a dining area.

The whole building can be hired exclusively & can house up to 70 guests for the small plates menu (See below).

See Sample menus below…

Our Pre-order Menu is a wonderful choice for a 3 course sit-down meal. This menu includes complimentary canapés on arrival.We send you the menu, you forward it onto your guests & collect the orders, then return the numbers back to us, easy!


The Tasting menu is also a great choice for a sit down meal, although there is no pre-order required as each dish on the menu will be enjoyed by all guests. Vegetarian & vegan options will be provided in the planning of the event if required.

The Sitting Small Plates menu is great for sharing, each dish is placed down the middle of the table for guests to help themselves. 5 Savoury dishes must be pre-ordered out of the 7. The focaccia & Portuguese doughnuts mandatory. This menu is perfect for close family & friends.

The Standing Small Plates menu is a little different…this is a menu consisting of 7 canapé style small plates, slowly walked around by our wonderful staff making sure all guests enjoy each course. This is not a sit down meal, this is a more casual, party like occasion, ideal for large numbers.
