Three Acres Inn & Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 21 Huddersfield B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2012

There can be no doubt that when you enter the Tree Acres Restaurant you are in a place that takes itself very seriously. The management have set this place out to impress, and they have achieved a very large percentage of their aim. Table layout in the main area of the restaurant is atmospheric ideal for a "special night" or a celebration. There has clearly been recent extensions to the eating area which seem to be aimed at attracting lunch time business, and early dinners, this is not so inviting so if you can get a table in the original part of the building then you'll have a more stylish experience.
The food is good without being exceptional, the menu is comprehensive, and the wine list covers most tastes and requirements. All in all you will visit many places that fall short of this establishment.The decor, and the staff have the capacity to engage you in a positive and relaxing environment. However be warned this place can get very busy, and has a large regular
clientele so if you intend to visit be sure to book particularly Thurs-Sunday in the evening. Take your credit card it's not cheap.

Whether it's an informal lunch or something a little more special, this place never fails to provide a great venue. We went for a birthday celebration. The food & service was excellent as usual. The staff friendly & efficient. Well done everyone. Another very enjoyable visit.

We were charmed by the Three Acres. The welcome was warm and anything we asked for in the way of extra towels and hangers was immediately attended to. One got the feeling that nothing was too much trouble. The room was warm and clean and cozy, with a large well equipped bathroom. The bed was large but the mattress was a bit soft and lumpy and my only criticism about the accommodation was that there was not enough light provided in the room, which meant applying make-up in the evenings was a bit of a challenge!
As far as the restaurant was concerned, we found it to be excellent. The choice of dishes on the menu was enormous. The food when it arrived was delicious and the portions were large and well presented. Coming from London, we thought the prices were very fair and both nights we ordered a lovely bottle of wine, which again was well priced. The restaurant was packed to the gunnells on both nights, but this in no way affected the service, which was efficient and very pleasant.
Breakfast too was well served and excellent. We had a complaint with the porridge one morning and the waitress whipped it away and bought fresh without any fuss.
I would recommend this place to anyone who chooses to stay in this lovely part of the UK.

Stayed here on business after seeing one of my oldest customers in Huddersfield, room was excellent, spotless and bed very comfortable, what more could you ask for.

Now to the meal, had a very good starter and the seafood platter which was a Man V Food consisting of Lobster, Scallops, King Prawn, Mussells , Whitebait , Mussells , 2 large portions of Haddock and chips which was as good a meal as i've ever experienced.

Great beer and the staff were a pleasure, even stayed up late to have a few drinks with the owners who are a really friendly and receptive couple who love their work and are lovely company, well done to you both and i won't leave it as long to come back next time

Room Tip: Book the restaurant as early as you can to avoid disappointment

Went for lunch on thursday 1st November Excellent, some would say it is expensive but you get what you pay for. If you want a KFC or Mac this is not the place for you, if you want food that tastes fantastic without god knows what added then its got to be the 3 acres. When every table is taken on a thursday lunch it speaks for itself

I have stayed at the 3 acres a few times over the last 14 years but this stay was definitely the most expensive and the worst nights sleep I ever had!

14 years ago when you booked to stay in the Annexe part of the 3 acres, the deal was £40 with bed and breakfast. These days its an inflation busting £125 for the same. I know it seems unfair to compare but I paid £40 to stay in the same room 14 years ago - its just not the same!

Checking in was fine, got to the room and it was freezing as they forgot to turn the heating on in the room before we arrived. This was fine as we booked a taxi to have a look around the bars in Huddersfield so headed straight out.

We ate in the restaurant which I have eaten in every time I have stayed here. This time I realised how expensive it was. We paid £12 for a prawn cocktail and about the same for a mini fish platter. Both were nice but you would normally shell this out for a main main. The chateaubriand was £65 and came with salad and chips. Decent enough but was undercooked to my partners liking for a 'medium' we also saw lots of steaks coming back from other patrons as undercooked. We sat next to the pass so we saw this a lot. The waiter was also not very attentive and we had to call him on plenty of occasions. At these prices I would expect a 5 star service. This was not provided at the 3 acres. At any point during our stay might I add.

We had a reasonably priced bottle of wine at around £27 then a few single glasses, a couple of champagnes and coffees and liquor. The next morning accommodation included total bill was £335, I have never paid this much here! It was so expensive!

The worst part was the size of the bed in the annexe. There was not enough room for a 6 foot man and a 5'3 woman to spend the night in, and I slept on the floor for the entire night. I saw slept, i was so uncomfortable I got 2 hours sleep. This room was not big enough for 2 people.

I have been here 2-3 times in the last 5 years and this place is just pricing itself out of the market. Its totally out of touch to charge so much for the bar and the meals in this day and age. I love it here for the atmosphere and the chic touches, but I just cannot afford to visit any longer.
