“Great tapas!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

We ate here a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. We sat in the bar area as wanted to order tapas. Nice decor and a good atmosphere. Staff were polite and friendly. Lots of choice with the tapas dishes. Every one of them was delicious. Unfortunately we couldn't manage a dessert. House wine was very nice.

“Great "tapas" menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Really nice tapas meal in the bar area at the Toad and Tatie. We have driven past here so many times but never got around to trying it out. The tapas menu is very large and very varied. From Thai stir fry to mexican, to local, to er things you would recognise as tapas (e.g. patatas bravas - which was excellent). We had four dishes and bread and that was plenty for us. The quality of the food was very good and was brought out very quickly.

The tapas is only available in the bar and you can't reserve. It was getting very busy by the time we left at 7:30 so you probably need a plan B in case you can't get anything to eat.

The place itself is very modern, attractive, relaxing made extra cosy by the log burner.

The staff were very welcoming and there are a lot of them so you get plenty of attention when it's needed without being pestered.

There were only two disappointments that take this down to 4 out of 5. The crockery was stone cold and we had to send it back and ask for some warm plates. And the dessert was very disappointing. I had the treacle and apple tart with calvados ice cream. The ice cream tasted of nothing and the tart was microwaved to boiling point and had gone soggy. This was a real shame because the rest of the food was so good....and it came out on an ice cold plate, which at least helped to cool down the tart

The main restaurant food looked very good with large portions. I'm sure we will be back to have a go at that in the near future.

It's great to have another good local business to keep supporting. Looking forward to my next visit.

great review, thank you. we are sorry to hear that you were not happy with cold plates.we do have a warming cupboard for crockery and pride ourselves on serving hot food on them,however as your initial choices were cold the waitress thought it best to give you cold ones[hot ones are readily available]. As for the overly warm dessert the offending sweet chef has been duly flogged and sends his apologies. look forward to seeing you again soon.

“Try the Tapas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of the B& B where we were staying on a recent weekend stay in Holmfirth. We struggled to find anywhere in Holmfirth that was veggie friendly so we thought we would give the Tapas a go at The Toad & Tatie. We are so glad we did - the restaurant itself is lovely, nicely furnished and decorated and it had a really good atmosphere. We managed to get a table by the wood burning stove and proceeded to order our tapas which came in a timely manner and all the dishes we chose were delightful. The portion sizes were very good and the presentation of the dishes was lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good value for money - would definitely return if we go back to Holmfirth again.

“Great dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

What a surprise! Extensive menu yet I couldn't decide what to have so settled on a steak which was cooked to perfection. Portion sizes are large. I was spoilt for choice with the desserts which are always a favourite with me.

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

OMG is all I can say. Super environment with friendly staff and owners and a nicely decorated swish place. The food was yummy too, from start to finish, we'll be back and I have no problems recommending this place. The Gambas was succulent and grouse was just soft and juicy, the whole evening was a lovely, relaxing, romantic experience. for the quality of the food it wasn't over priced at all, well worth it. I can emphasis how much we enjoyed the food here.
