Nice again. But Dining area cold!!

Dined here 18th May in the evening had Sausage & Mash, very nice indeed & treacle pudding was nice too. Well presented. The only fault was it was a cold day & the large dining area was cold & the food got cold while eating it!. Waiting staff were nice & Beer was nice too.

Out in the sticks above Holmfirth but a lovely drive to get to. Spacious pub with a friendly atmosphere. Sunday lunch basic but a hearty meal ! Worth a visit.

We had not visited The Huntsman for some years, though for no particular reason. However, with my daughter and son-in-law, we decided to return. It had all changed inside since my last visit, much plusher and smarter, with plenty of space in both the bar area and the restaurant. The selection of draught beers was a little limited, but this...

Been eating at the Huntsman for over 20 years and always have a nice meal. We called in for Sunday lunch. Had a curried parsnip soup to start, it was absolutely gorgeous. After that had a pork Sunday lunch which had everything on the plate (only thing missing was mash potatoes). It was really good and filling. Had no room... More

Waited ages for food, Steak was asked to be cooked medium well done, was more like medium rare, did complain but still took my money, couldn't seem to cope with large groups that had come in after us and service fell by the wayside. Maybe this was a one off but won't be returning anytime soon

I was invited to a birthday lunch for my friend's mother together with several others. The place was very cold and most of us ate our lunch in our coats! Soup ordered by three people had to be returned to the kitchen as it was only warm and not hot at all. My friend ordered liver which was stringy and... More

We came across the Huntsman on a drive out over the Moors and what a fantastic find. Staff were friendly, food was excellent (there at lunch time). Great menu and a full specials board which I ate from , both dishes were outstanding. Will definitely be back.

We arrived without a booking for an early dinner on Easter Monday opting to sit in the bar area rather than the restaurant. Having decided what we wanted to order I assumed I would need to order at the bar but a very pleasant and friendly waitress took our food and drinks order. Maybe because it was busy the food...

We took our family here for a retirement celebration meal. While we were there we also checked out the wedding venue facilities. Very promising. I went to the trouble of pre-ordering our food and I must say everything went like clockwork. Very enjoyable food and added bonus was that it was a beautiful day so we sat outside and had... More
