Been here a few times, really liked it before, however this visit was really disappointing , the staff have not got a clue about customer service, some just had no idea of the word thanks, the food was rubbish, portions were child portions, and the presentation awful, the restaurant was really untidy food all over the place, then to top it off the ladies toilets were a disgrace, it's a real shame because the building is lovely

Arrived with friends at 7:15. I had the Chicken Tikka Marsala, which had hardly any chicken in it. I've been to many restaurants in Wakefield and this dish was the worst Tikka Marsala.
Waiting forty minutes for what was promised by the dessert menu turned out to be very disappointing portion sizes - "chocolate brownie fudge with ice-cream" was a minuscule brownie - 2" x 1" x 1/2", the ice-cream was HALF a golf-ball sized scoop.
The staff need to be taught that even if they hate the place, they should still look reasonably happy, rather than the sour faces were were treated to.
This is the second time I have had bad service at this restaurant. I didn't choose the location of this evening out, I certainly wont be selecting Holmfield House for any future group evenings.

The management sent me £20 voucher after our last visit to Holmfield House, as the food was inedible.
3 weeks later we returned and was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed everything we had. The staff were attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
thanks, we will return again.
