Thank you John for your review, as always a pleasure to see you, Your review sums up what we are here for, great beer, fab food and excellent service and I am sure if any of these were not right you would tell us which is reassuring to know. We never take our regular customers for granted and it is good to know that we are consistently achieving a great level of satisfaction. We are all looking forward to 2014 where we have lots of new additions to the menus and special nights planned to keep moving forward.
All the best and thanks once again for your support.

“Still the best pub grub in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Took my family here back in September and everyone was delighted with the food, wine and atmosphere. Many of us had the flat iron steak, and they were great as always.
It's nice to see things haven't slipped since ex-manager Astrid moved on. Came here with a friend on Saturday for more steaks and again brilliant. If you like red wine, The Opportunist Shiraz is fantastic, my new favourite. Can't wait to return, staff always friendly and personable, know their stuff. If only there were more pubs like this in town.

It was a pleasure to meet you again and we are glad you were pleased with everything. It really embodied the spirit of Christmas to see you become friends with the table of four next to you. When you all moved into the bar area after your meals the laughter that was coming from your table was heartwarming and when the six of you started singing Christmas songs (very harmoniously) it brought a smile to most peoples faces on a busy Saturday night. The flat iron steak is becoming increasingly popular and a lot of the credit goes to R & J Butchers who provide such good steaks, and also the chefs who prepare and then cook them. All that is then left is for us to serve them and make sure you have a great time with us. There have been a lot of changes since Astrid left but the one thing that will never change is our passion to be excellent.
Hope you have a New Year and look forward to seeing you soon.
Sam. Jon and all the THT team.

“Top pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Popped in last Sunday for a quick pint & ended up staying longer because the landlord's are so friendly. I didn't have lunch but the food looked superb the people I was chatting to loved the Sunday roast. Go you will not be disappointed

It was great to meet you on Sunday, it is always a pleasure to have a chat especially on a Sunday when the atmosphere in general is very relaxed and casual. I love working on a Sunday as I know that at some point I will also get a Sunday Lunch which is my favourite meal of the week (although I normally have two yorkies). It is great to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the beer to be of a high standard. It is always nice to see customers interact with each other and have a chat and a laugh, in my eyes that is what a pub should be. Whether it is a city centre pub or your village local, the pub is a place to meet new friends whilst having a good time. Thank you for leaving your review and hope you will call in again in 2014.

Regards

Jon

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Visited for a late lunch today - had a sharing starter of crab cakes & breads; which was served with the most fantastic balsamic vinegar (and olive oil). The homemade scotch egg is also very very good.
Main courses were also of a high standard for gastro-pub food.

Overall, serving excellent food, great beer, in a homely environment...

In our opinion well worth trying out !

“Christmas Shopping Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We called in during a Christmas shopping trip to Leeds
I must say the Fish and Chips was very tasty with home main tartare sauce - massive portion also.
My wife had the burger which was a nice size also. - and looked appetizing
Freshly cooked food was well worth waiting for.

Tha's nk you for your very kind review, the meals you ordered are some of the most popular dishes we sell, as you say well cooked homemade food does take a little while and the burger is flash fried and then oven roasted to ensure it stays moist and juicy. The haddock we sell is locally sourced and then cooked in our homemade beer batter.
Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you again in 2014
