A lovely pub with a good atmosphere and excellent food and helpful pleasant staff. The fish and chips were first class, tasty and hot. Enchiladas were very well presented and tasty, it's well worth a visit and value for money.

Excellent traditional pub grub for a reasonable price. Very friendly staff. Warm environment with a lovely seating area round a fire where you could go for a nice drink. This has to be one of my favourite pubs for Sunday dinner.

The property has been owned by Jackie & Nick since April 2012, who also own and manage the Fox & Hounds in nearby Newmillerdam, Wakefield, that has earned a great reputation rapidly approaching a top ten Trip Advisor rating after taking it over when not in the top 100!!! The same high standards are applied in all areas of our food and drinks offer, from procurement to stoarage and wonderful preparation of meals by the qualified team of Chefs. The bar and restaurant areas have been fully refurbished to provide a Bistro Bar, Piano Lounge with real log fire, and Conservatory Restaurant. The menu covers from lunchtime light snacks through to what we believe to be the very best fillet steaks you will taste for miles around.We cater for a wide range of party sizes from 2 up to 60 sit down and 100 buffet style and have already hosted many birthday/anniversary and even Wedding receptions.Due to our location we allow well behaved dogs in to our non restaurant areas where you can also eat.
