We went to their fish night a few years ago & it was really nice so thought we'd book again for this year. We were not impressed this time, 5 courses with a wine reception for £35 a head. An amuse bouche of Vichysoisse (a soup of creamed leeks, onions & potatoes) which apart from the chef sticking a lump... More

Just outside Halifax is an elegant dining experience. White tablecloths, silver service and a fantastic tasting menu at a reasonable price. Not just for but would ideally compliment a special occasion. Must be formally recognized soon.

1885 kindly squeezed us in at the last minute for a Mother's Day meal. We had an excellent value for money three course meal. The staff were friendly, and accommodating. My daughter was suffering with toothache and would only eat soft food. The staff were happy to speak with the chef to provide her with something easy to eat. I... More

Have eaten here a few times and enjoyed the pub, however ........ We took two friends who had never been and we're looking forward to the great food we promised them but what a let down. The first course, the fish sharing plank,was amazing. Our friends were then looking forward to their second course, of which, both had ordered the... More

1885 has a restaurant, a pub and some stylish rooms for B&B - all are really lovely. We went to the restaurant on boxing day and have returned. Service good and yet relaxed, food sumptuous and ambiance just about perfect. The same can be said for the pub next door, obviously more relaxed and more family friendly and a bit... More

Stayed here with my partner and we had a fantastic stay. Meal was lovely, staff and food was lovely and the accommodation was lovely. Beds really comfortable and the breakfast was presented nicely in a basket. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back.

Pub food how it should be, wholesome, hot, good sized portions and friendly staff. Went on New Years Eve afternoon and my wife and I had two drinks each, mains, sweets and coffee for £40 and we were full. Definitely going back soon.

Went for a family celebration, as usual the staff were superb. Most of our food was excellent, however, the fish pie left everything to be desired, watery sauce, looked most unappetising. When mentioned, this was taken on board and the cost removed from the bill. I think this was just a small hiccup at an otherwise superb venue.
