We found this on our first visit to Huddersfield and have visited every time we visit our son. He was working in Huddersfield for a year. And yet again (but for the final time), we return to a wonderful menu. We arrived and were greeted with drinks menus. Very exciting drinks menu to start with. We were lead to our... More

I dined at Eric's recently with my brother and sister-in-law, we went for the early bird. I had been previously in the early days but had been put off due to a frosty reception on arrival with my friend at the time. However, I am so glad to have tried Eric's again. My husband was unable to attend as he... More

We recently had Eric catering our wedding and can safely say it was a huge success! We cannot recommend him and his team highly enough. The food was outstanding and everyone commented (at length) how fresh and tasty it was. We went for a full three course meal and each course was delivered to the highest standard. All of the...

Eric's never fails to deliver consistently delicious food. It's the best dinner out in Huddersfield by a million miles and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! The service can be a little slow when it's busy, but that's to be expected.

Lunch for two as an anniversary celebration was a delight. The food was first class, service excellent in every way, prices reasonable and appropriate, and the setting most congenial. Our only other comment - not a complaint - was the portion size, which was a bit too much for us. And they even provided an umbrella as the heavens opened... More

I have visited Erics a couple of times for evening meals and always enjoyed the food, but found the service lacking and some of the staff a little rude, I had decided not to go back in a hurry.

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is extremely rare that our staff are ever described as rude.

Furthermore I would like to apologise if you found me to be a little brash, but this is genuinely... More

Call me picky, but when you go to the home of a Chief Proprietor to sample his skills, you expect him to be there, not "doing a wedding". Would the Duck starter have been as dry if he had been there? Having said that the food was good and well presented, the hake in particular, but overpriced for a Huddersfield... More

I think this review is a little unfair if I'm totally honest.

But to ask the proprietor of any business (let alone a restaurant that operates over 12 hours a day!)... More

As soon as we arrived we was welcomed and whilst having brinks was given menu. Since two of our party was driving they had some of the non-alcoholic cocktails which they said was very refreshing.

Hi David

We are also fans of Erics but the seating for us has also been an issue and spoilt our overall dining experience so much so that we haven't returned since August 2014.

The table you were seated at was actually the same as we allocated on our last visit and we mentioned in our previous review of Erics that this was badly located and also unsafe. We received a somewhat petulant response from Eric two months later only saying quote " That I might like to know that this table had been removed!" which we thought was rather a childish response and certainly very unprofessional. There was no reference at all to our disappointment and was sent as a private response so other readers of the reviews didn't have sight of it. In fact most criticism that Erics receives is usually responded by the same tantrum type reply rather than actually accepting the constructive criticism and dealing with it in a grown up and professional manner.

We are not surprised that you didn't bring your disappointment to the attention of staff because we are sure that their response and subsequent action would have been very positive but we would have been concerned that this would have been followed up by a tirade of anger from Eric. Without doubt the food here is good, the venue is lovely but it will take a lot to make us change our opinion that the customer is really that important to Eric, he is too far up his ivory tower to accept that others (and his customers at that), might have a correct and differing opinion to his.
