“Best Steak Ever”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Easy parking either outside the pub or in one of the two car parks the pub has. Nice friendly welcome from behind the bar which has a couple of real ales, good range of lagers and ciders. Promptly shown our seats in the resturant, We had pre choosen our meal so didn't need to decide from from the menu, which all looked delicious and home cooked. We had ordered Chauteaubriand which came with chunky twice cooked chips, onion rings, large mushrooms, baby carrott, parsnips, rocket salad and cherry tomatos. The steak was cooked medium rare and was perfect it melted in the mouth. Cheese and biscuits to follow, local cheese presented beautifully and tasted great.
Can't fault the pub, staff, service and of course the food. Give a go you will not regret it.

“A warm Yorkshire welcome and good food.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Good food and service. The pub was very quiet when we visited on a Sunday evening so we are keen to go again to sample a busier atmosphere.

“Well worth the drive from Barnsley to Thornton, Bradford”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Went with the wife after picking up a voucher on Travelzoo, The staff couldn't have been more polite and attentive and the food is outstanding and good value to boot! This gastropub has all the quality and finesse to match any top end eatery but all this is delivered with a down to earth no edge service which is second to none. We will definitely be returning with friends and even though it is a good hour away from our home we would recommend anyone take the journey, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for your review. All our award winning pies and suet puddings are served in the traditional way with triple cooked chips and 'proper mushy peas!' We do have a great selection of fresh veg on offer and the staff would be only to happy to have served you some if asked.

We hope to see you again soon.
