We decided to take the children out for Sunday Lunch, and we were greeted by friendly staff, and an excellent selection of beers and extensive wine list. The Sunday Lunch was perfect home cooked food, and the children loved the pumpkin soup. The environment was relaxed, and we will certainly be returning for further Sunday outings

Visited for the first time for a Sunday dinner and it was well worth the drive over from Saddleworth. From arriving, the staff were polite, attentive and patient with the children. It's a fantastic menu and I'm surprised by any comments around price as for the quality and quantity of food, I believe this is excellent value for money. We... More

Family visit for a midweek meal. All 5 of us had 2 current scallop starters, for mains, it was steak night & we all participated. Everything was cooked perfectly & the wine was superb.

Not a lot to say except it's over priced and bland! Other dining experiences in Huddersfield are less expensive and a little more adventurous! Averagely disappointing.

Not great. Small servings, massive prices. Bit stuffy and pompous. Nice enough place but atmosphere isn't there. Plus three tables just outside the gents isn't a good sign.

More food than we could eat, and all of the best quality prepared & cooked to perfection. Wonderful bar and restaurant areas, very tranquil garden. Overall a great place: clean, excellent customer service & very reasonable price for what you get IMO.
