“lovely atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I come here often for the atmosphere and guest ales. The food is good too. The cheese and onion pie is to die for. The only draw back is that they have very little staff. Ok for a normal day but not for a busy, sunny bank holiday.

“Very good food and environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

we visited The Navigation Inn last Sunday (17th of February 2013). the restaurant is located by the canal. its a nice little restaurant,the food was delicious and home made! the price for 2 course meal came to £10.50 (main and dessert). everyone was very polite and helpful! the only thing i can say was negative was the price of a pint that was close to £4. then again u tend to pay more when u visit tourists places but i felt i had to mention that it was a bit expensive for a pint of lager ! apart from that i strongly recommended!

“Gorgeous food and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We often go to the Navi as a couple or with the children for our dinner, the food is always fantastic and the staff are very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend calling in for a meal or a relaxing pint.

“The best eating haunt in Sowerby Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We have been to the Navigation on a lot of occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is always piping hot and cooked freshly to order (fresh vegetables used at all times). The Sunday Roast is one of the best roasts we have eaten, in England, never mind Calderdale!. The menu is very varied and there are also specials boards. There is a good choice of vegetarion options as well. The specials boards are changed on a regular basis so there is always something new to try. The staff are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The Navigation do a £10 special offer for a main course and pudding (these are picked from a limited selection from the menu but, nonetheless, are still exceptional value for money and a good choice). We don't usually go for this option as we never have any room for a pudding after our main course! They also do a Steak night as well on Wednesdays (2 steak meals and a bottle of wine for, I think, £20). Friends of ours have been for the steak night and have thoroughly enjoyed it and said the steak was delicious. Would definitely recommend the Navigation as a place to eat. Fantastic food, relaxing and comfortable surroundings with friendly and cheerful staff. Some may say it's not the cheapest place to eat, but, I feel the quality of the food is worth ever penny. Go on, try it, you will not be disappointed.

“Good Food shame about the lack of hygene when serving up dessert.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We ate here a few months back and found the food to be very good, however we were in for a drink the other week and noticed the waitress serving up dessert from a fridge by the bar, her fingers were used to slide the desserts off the spatular onto the plate/dish and then proceeded to lick her fingers and serve up the next dessert without washing her hands, the same happened again. She must have a sweet tooth! a dish. Think ill give dessert a miss next time!
