About Holdsworth House Hotel
The restaurant at Holdsworth House in Halifax offers à la carte fine dining for something special. Choose from our Guest Favourites for hearty home cooked food, our famous Holdsworth House afternoon tea for a pleasant afternoon out or the bar menu listing lighter bites and snacks. The restaurant is proud to have retained 2 AA Rosettes for over 18 consecutive years.
The three adjoining dining rooms overlook the gardens. The Stone Room, the Panelled Room and the Mullioned Room each offers a cosy atmosphere, open fireplaces and stone mullioned windows to the world outside.
A really nice experience.
Just lovely all round
Was not somewhere I would like to dine again Service was slow ordered a glass of Merlot and it never arrived until I asked a second time Food came peppercorn sauce came 8 minutes after smallest portion possible Our hole experience was below average at best
We came for afternoon tea for my husbands birthday and had a lovely time. The food was amazing with great service and set in beautiful surroundings. What a lovely atmosphere and great value for money.
Lovely afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely hotel. Room, food and staff all great.
The restaurant was very noisy due to a wedding. The traffic between the evening reception and the restaurant was constant and did not stop until almost 9.00 pm, which did not lend to a very relaxing evening. The food was nice, but did not wow us. We also found it to be quite expensive compared to other dining experiences. In addition, no specials were available due to the wedding, so we found the menu quite limited. However, had the atmosphere been a little more relaxing, then perhaps with some music in the background, the evening/meal might have been a more enjoyable one. Nevertheless, this was disappointing considering we were celebrating a big birthday. For your information, we had our wedding reception at Holdsworth House 14 years ago, so were fully aware of wedding guests not having access to the restaurant or garden area after a certain time. However, back then I am sure it was after 7.30 pm. Perhaps this is later now, but had we known this, we would have opted for a later dining time. We were also told we could have a pre-dinner drink in the bar area, but was advised not to do so because it was very busy and noisy due to the wedding. Our options were a drink by reception or at our table, again very disappointing. Sadly, I don't think we will be returning anytime soon. I hope this feedback is helpful.
Excellent welcoming service from all staff and lovely food
Came for a birthday afternoon tea with 3 friends. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. Food was delicious, tea plentiful and service impeccable. Felt very looked after and spoiled by the lovely staff in such lovely surroundings. No pressure to hurry or leave. Recommended. Its a very special place for an occasion or treat.
Terrible service, rude and unhelpful waitress. Also ignored our wishes regarding the birthday request for our guest. Will not be returning.
An idyllic setting in a tucked away part of Halifax. Our Afternoon tea was most enjoyable and offered a relaxing afternoon out. At other venues where we have have had a similar afternoon tea offering we were offered the chance of further sandwiches etc., but this is probably being a little picky because in every other respect it was enjoyable, even if they did forget the milk for our tea!
We particularly appreciated the efforts made so that our 2 year old grandson could also enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. He loved the Brownie & the gingerbread man.
The gluten free afternoon tea was lovely but a bit heavy going due to the number of dry items.
1st class afternoon tea!!!
A delicious afternoon tea!
We enjoyed an excellent selection of afternoon tea cakes, sandwiches and scones to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We booked after reading the glowing reviews and were not disappointed. The dining area and gardens are very relaxing and comfortable. We would love to eat at Holdsworth House again.
Amazing stay thank you loved every minute of our romantic stay xx
We love the food here so much we booked our wedding here after the first meal, exceptional food, the staff are exceptionally helpful, can’t praise them enough! Looking forward to our next visit!
Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch experience
Holdsworth House Hotel is the perfect venue for all occasions. The history of the Hotel is really impressive,as are some of the previous guests, including The Beatles. We really enjoyed our stay. The Staff were very attentive and helpful. And the food was excellent. A really good experience.
Definitely recommend excellent Sunday lunch
We got married at holdsworth and return periodically to experience a top quality hotel and restaurant.
Overall our experience was very good, this restaurant is a little pricier than we would usually visit but this can be explained away by way the food was presented and the more private surroundings you sit in. Jake made us feel very welcome and made sure he put time aside to speak with us which gave us a more personal experience. We will definitely return.
Great place good food hoping to book our wedding here
Taster menu really good
