“Great food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

On a business trip it's always awkward to go out and eat by yourself, so I often eat in the hotel I'm staying at. It's rare to get great food and service, which is why I'm happy to give such a positive review. Food was really good, service excellent, price was ok but work were paying!

“Great value tasting menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Not only was the tasting menu excellent value at £45 per person excluding wine, it was very good quality food. Most of the waiters were knowledgeable about wines suited to each course. Highly recommended.

“Yorkshire on a Fork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were tempted by the special menu - every dish used a Yorkshire beer.
We had a drink in the lounge before dinner beside a roaring log fire while looking through the menu.
I chose Stoodley Stout Yorkshire Rarebit as the starter which came with a delicious relish, Fair Trade Ginger Pale Ale Pork Belly and Cragg Vale Cheese Scones all of which were excellent.
We have been here a few times and the standard is always very high and we will definately be going back.

Dear Tony H, thank you for your review and for joining us to celebrate the Yorkshire on a Fork beer menu with the Little Valley Brewery. We are really pleased you had an enjoyable evening. Our next Yorkshire on a Fork is planned for January after the excitement of Christmas has calmed down. We do hope you'll book again for our special one off menus.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

An anniverary dinner here was superb. The hotel is Jacobean with beautiful low slung mullion windows. The dining room is oak panelled with a real fire. The menu was British modern in style and very inventive in choices. The menu has choices which are regional including yorkshire lamb and cheeses. I have also had afternoon tea here, sprawled on huge sofas in a very comfortable lounge.
