Perfect for a special occasion.

A lovely olde-worlde restaurant actually made up of 3 adjoining rooms with wooden tables laid with white napkins which are individually placed on your lap- a nice touch! Service was very friendly provided primarily by locals (judging by the delightful Yorkshire accents!). The food was delicious and... read more

Took my parents for the (Travelzoo) Rib-eye steak and wine lunch over Mother's Day weekend and had a very enjoyable meal with good company for an excellent price. The ambience, staff, setting and food were all very good. The deal was only for the one course and the steak was large and cooked to perfection. There was so much of... More

The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very professional and friendly. We expected to receive excellent food for our Mothers Day lunch however the reality was that the food was extremely poor. I have eaten at the hotel on many occasions in the past and received excellent food so it was a surprise to receive such poor quality food... More

I happened to see a ‘steak and red wine deal’ for Holdsworth House on Amazon Local and when I looked at the website and recognised it from ‘Last Tango in Halifax’, I bought the voucher and fully expected to love the place. How wrong could I be?! Despite the pretty building and good service from one member of staff (the... More

My husband booked afternoon tea as a surprise for my birthday. Having visited other venues for afternoon tea I had high expectations. As other reviewers on arrival the receptionist informed us that we would have a short wait as there was a wedding that day. Once seated 15 minutes later we were offered tea and coffee I presumed to have... More

Dear juliecowey, we are very disappointed to read your feedback. We will investigate with our restaurant team why we would have failed on this occasion.

We can of course arrange to make something specific... More

I usually go to Betty's in York or Harrogate for Mothers day afternoon tea but I was looking to find somewhere else this year for a change & Holdsworth House was recommended to me so I rang & booked.

The restaurant itself was beautifully laid out. The staff were very attentive and the menu offered a number of dishes across all courses, catering for most tastes including some more interesting flavour combinations. We thought it was also very good value and excellent quality. One small piece of feedback is that the food could have been hotter. The breakfast was... More

It was our 35th Wedding Anniversary which fell on a Monday just 2 days after valentines day. We thought that many restaurants would be closed or very quiet, so went for a restaurant attached to a hotel. Booking the table was a little odd, as I asked for 7.30 but was told it had to be 7.45 and then I... More
