We were staying at the hotel, 21st May, so decided to have our evening meal there.. It was fabulous, with the nice little extra touches that we all love... mini snacks with your drink whilst waiting for table, complimentary little jug of soup, and warm bread and butter.. The food was quality, beautifully presented, with the best triple cooked chips... More

Liked everything, desserts could be more interesting. Lovely atmosphere and excellent service. We tried both a la carte and grill menus and both were great.

We received a voucher to go to holdsworth house for dinner. We had checked it out on line and we're looking forward to going. Well we were not disappointed. A truly beautiful and historic venue, we were fortunate as it was a lovely evening and so the gardens and courtyards were at their best. The staff were not only polite,... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants around - we have dined both as wedding guests, taster meals, and normal restaurant and it is all superb - well worth a visit for top quality food in wonderful atmospheric surroundings

Dear Cathie G we are sorry that your experience failed to live up to expectations. We are looking at our family afternoon tea offering to see how we can tailor it better to suit children and will investigate why nothing was prepared for your son's birthday as usually we can do something special. We have also now prepared alternative sandwiches... More

My wife and I took our son and daughter-in-law for on overnight stay with dinner as they were great fans of "Last tango in Halfax". We were unable to dine until 8.30pm so pre-ordered in the bar to ensure quick service but it was still 55 minutes before our food arrived. Portions were quite small and the food was over... More

Having been to Holdsworth house before the experience was not new, but this was the first for afternoon tea. There were more than enough sandwiches, cakes, scones and hot cross buns for the three of us + creams and preserves. The service was good, with prompt attention, no rush, little waiting. The location has a not overly large garden and... More
