We chose Eric's for a family lunch based on TA reviews and are happy to report it justifiably earns its reputation. We were slightly concerned when we called to reserve a table to be told there were several large parties booked for the same time but these fears were groundless, the staff at Eric's (front of house and kitchen) worked...

Erics is one of my favourite local restaurants. The food is always delicious and the staff are great. Make sure you try the seasonal cocktails.

Went there for my wife's birthday...overall the food was good...however the time for the main courses to arrive was a very long wait. My daughter is of a young age, I mention this to the manager...he went on to say....it will be well worth the wait... I explained to him the situation and the very long wait in this instance...

The best Huddersfield has to offer. The service is always great, the food is so creative and full of flavor. I also think it's a lovely touch that Eric (chef) walks around to check everyone who is dinning is happy.

Had the early bird menu, chose the steak option & happily paid the £5 supplement as it was delicious. Dessert menu fabulous! Will return again.

Visited as a couple on 27th January for a early evening meal. We booked in advance earlier that day. When we arrived we were met by a friendly face from the intimate bar area at the point where you enter the premises. We were offered the option of having a drink in the bar, or going straight to our table.... More

Visiting Erics for maybe the 5th or 6th time this week I was dismayed to find no vegetarian main option on the menu…. but on asking, I discovered (to my joy) that was because there is now a whole vegetarian menu. I could have hugged the waiter. Well done Eric. And it didn't disappoint… The celeriac soup was genuinely outstanding,... More

Hi David

We are also fans of Erics but the seating for us has also been an issue and spoilt our overall dining experience so much so that we haven't returned since August 2014.

The table you were seated at was actually the same as we allocated on our last visit and we mentioned in our previous review of Erics that this was badly located and also unsafe. We received a somewhat petulant response from Eric two months later only saying quote " That I might like to know that this table had been removed!" which we thought was rather a childish response and certainly very unprofessional. There was no reference at all to our disappointment and was sent as a private response so other readers of the reviews didn't have sight of it. In fact most criticism that Erics receives is usually responded by the same tantrum type reply rather than actually accepting the constructive criticism and dealing with it in a grown up and professional manner.

We are not surprised that you didn't bring your disappointment to the attention of staff because we are sure that their response and subsequent action would have been very positive but we would have been concerned that this would have been followed up by a tirade of anger from Eric. Without doubt the food here is good, the venue is lovely but it will take a lot to make us change our opinion that the customer is really that important to Eric, he is too far up his ivory tower to accept that others (and his customers at that), might have a correct and differing opinion to his.
