“Fabulous place, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

This cafe is an excellent place to dine. Lots of good choices on offer. Both my husband and I have never had any reason for complaint. There are dishes on offer out of the ordinary. The guy who cooks your food is a first class chef, loads of taste that delights the taste buds. The staff are excellent, courteous, always find time to interact with customers and always have a smile for everyone. There are theme cookery nights most weeks. There is a small cinema where you can have private functions and even parties for children too. Holmfirth is full of character but this place beats all others in the area. The prices are very good. The fat chips are exceptional. Food is presented exceptionally well and thought has been put into culinary delights on offer. Nothing is a problem for anyone here, you go in and get treated very well, have a wonderful feast and remember the good tasting experience had. We travel 80+ miles just to eat at this excellent place and return home relaxed and knowing that soon we will return.

“Lunch Up Penny Lane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We can't fault this cafe much, apart from the decor being a bit tiered everything els was wonderful. The staff are friendly, food was good and well priced and they even don't mind altering the menu to help with dietary needs. My wife had salmon with a jacket potato and they were happy to serve the salmon without the usual sauce although a little salad on the dish would have improved the dish dramatically. Overall very good, we will return again some time.

“Excellent food and brilliant value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

What a gem of a restaurant up a narrow back alley. We ate in here on Saturday lunchtime. It was full, but the staff very kindly opened up the additional seating area for us. The lunch menu is excellent value - £5 for one course and £7.50 for two. They also have a very reasonably priced carvery if you fancy something more substantial. From the lunch menu, we were spoilt for choice with a wide selection of vegetarian options, all of which sounded delicious. I had the vegetable coconut Korma with rice and Peter the sweet potato and peanut stew with mash, both of which were very tasty and generous portions. We thoroughly enjoyed them both and they filled us up, so no room, alas for the wonderful looking desserts we had set our sights on. A very generous pot of tea rounded off the meal most appropriately. For the two of us it came to less than thirteen pounds, which, for a hot drink and a delicious hot meal is very good value. The staff were very helpful and nice too. The packages the cafe offers of a film and food seem an excellent idea. They also have some cookery classes. We will certainly be back, when next in Holmfirth. Highly recommended. Do try it out for yourselves if you can, it is a real gem of a place.
