Have Been to Foxhouse for years and enjoyed the food and friendliness of staff and familiar customers. However a couple of weeks ago we visited and the food was very bland and disappointing. Management seemed to be missing and some staff were obviously trying to cope with various areas at the same time, creating some confusion and mayhem. The real... More

Situated on the Penistone Road high above Holmfirth, a family owned country restaurant/pub with beautiful views. Both my hubby & I have frequently visited The Fox House over a number of years and each time we have never been disappointed, they always have a very well stocked bar with local ales on offer and a fabulous selection of wines and...

We stopped to eat here after visiting a relative in Slaithwaite. The Inn is situated in a beautiful part of the country and looked welcoming from the outside. Inside is a little dark and dated and there was a draught from the window where we were sitting which made it rather cold. The Inn was rather quiet but had apparently... More

The trouble with having favourite pubs and restaurants is that every now and again you're in for a disappointment - and that was what happened yesterday. Six hungry people, expecting tasty food and substantial portions. What we got just didn't live up to expectations. Four of us went for the Hunter's chicken, an old favourite, but today the chicken was... More

We have meetings here several times a year and they never disappoint. This year we decided to have Christmas Dinner here - what a choice! Everything was spot on and the atmosphere was great. There were 24 in our party, sat at two tables, and the service was very good. The food was excellent, as it has been throughout the... More

We visited here for a family party of 15 people. The restaurant is located in a beautiful part of the world. Once entering there's a old vintage theme, with lots of dark wood paneling. A decent range of drinks. The food was just ok really, no one had a reason to complain, but it was a little bland for many... More

Went there with the family, the carvery looked good but we all had a la carte, I had mixed grill, wife and son had steak and my daughter had a burger, all the food was really good and had a real feel that it was freshly cooked, one of my dislikes of some of the pub chains is that the... More
