If you ever want to impress someone , but keep their feet on the ground, take them to 1885. The staff are friendly and so welcoming, so relaxed yet professional right down to the minutest detail. Have a drink, take as long as you want over the vast creative menu. We had a great meal, such brilliant service - a... More

Bought the groupon deal £65 for 2. Went with friends who hadn't bought the deal but the restaurant agreed to do the same deal for them. Booking a table was a little difficult with the restaurant only opening fri, sat and sun lunch, however that was the only blip. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and eac h course tasted... More

Been a while since we dined here, but continues to be excellent food, Prixe Menu offering good choice as well as a la Carte. Excellent young staff from a great welcome to efficient pleasant service. Lovely ambience and whilst in no rush to leave at the end of the evening we didn't feel pressured to. Must return sooner than later!

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
