9 family and friends went to celebrate 2 birthdays, I knew at least 6 were vegetarians but in the end only one person ate meat. They have a spectacular vegetarian menu - they just don't advertise it! I have walked past it for many years thinking there was nothing I could eat, until a friend went with another group and raved about the veggie options.
So all you veggies out there - tell them you're coming and they'll meet your needs.
Otherwise I agree with other reviews: food not cheap but worth every penny, service attentive, friendly but not fussy, decor a little dated.

We went there for our anniversary, and apart from the slightly dated decor had an excellant time. The food, service and attention to detail were of a very high standard. A great place to go for a special occasion.

A really pleasant little place this. Really like what they try to do cusine wise, and it usually works. Good service too, and although it may be a little too cosy for some, it has an undeniable ambience. A little on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for.

Have twice been with a family party, we hired out the whole place for a few hours for a special birthday meal. Last time was May 2010. Kitties has been open since 1991.

The service is second to none: attentive without being overbearing, quick and accommodating. Children are more than welcome and overall the place has a really homely, comfy feel thanks mainly to the owners' friendliness.

The decor/rooms, although clean, are looking very dated. Doing away with the chintzy curtains, loud carpets, wicker furniture in the bar, various ornaments and clutter would make it feel a lot more contemporary without detracting from the essence of what the restaurant is about, a cosy family run feel. The dining room is small and nicely intimate with unobtrusive background music.

Onto the food: quite simply spot on. Everything is home made and real care obviously goes into what they do. I had traditional roast beef which was cooked to perfection, pink in the middle and amazingly tender. Mountains of lovely fresh veg offered alongside rich homemade gravy and homemade horseradish. Dessert was fresh profiteroles whch were to die for. Literally couldn't complain about the food.

It would be great to see the place have a bit of a makeover and maybe some midweek offers which might attract a younger clientele many of whom having moving to Hebden Bridge from outside the area are not aware of the place. Vegetarians who don't eat fish are not going to find anything suitable on the main menu and would need to pre-book advising of special requirements, in my opinion this is a negative.

At £16 minimum the main courses are not cheap but this is more a special treat kind of place, reflected in the quality of the food which as I said before is faultless.
