total experience got off to a good start when I rang to book: a
gentleman answered the phone very quickly and very politely. He
explained the menu options and the available booking times and then took
my reservation ¬– he was very helpful.
The restaurant is located on the corner of Cross Street and Westgate in
Honley. There are free public parking facilitates on the opposite side
of the road. There is also a bus link that stops almost outside if the
entire group wish to have a drink.
The building is deceptively roomy and cosy inside and looks very
welcoming. Our initial greeting was very friendly and they were very
quick to get us seated. Our table was downstairs. Disabled diners would
be able to be seated on the first floor level.
There was a great atmosphere, and the place was busy. Good lighting,
background music not too loud, and the general décor was clean and
It was nice to have a smoke free dinner, but there is a small alley
outside (although not covered) where smokers can go.
There was a two tier priced menu with added dishes, and extra charges
been made clear on both food and drinks: £18.50 for two courses or
£21.50 for three courses, including half a bottle of house wine for each
person. You could upgrade with prices clearly marked. Complimentary
water was also offered. Upstairs was a lovely aroma of coffee if a warm
drink is preferred?
My husband likes a draught beer or two, and when he asked to replace the
wine, they knocked two pounds off the meal price and just charged for
the beer (most impressed). The price of the ale was £2.70. When the beer
came it was cloudy, but when this was brought to their attention it was
quickly removed and replaced with a fresh one plus an apology from the
manager (cannot be fairer than that). It was local ale sourced from
Slaithwaite, and my husband was very happy with it.
We both had starters of homemade-spiced cauliflower soup followed by
pheasant and ham pie. Our desserts were apple and sultana crumble and
home-made banana ice cream, and were EXCELLENT. All the dishes were
served on warm crockery. There are choices for vegetarians also.
The meal was served just at the right pace that made you feel relaxed
and all of the staff and management were very pleasant. The evening meal
is aimed at adults only, in my opinion not a bad idea for the type of
Total price of meal: £41.00
Total price of drinks: £6.30
Grand Total: £47.30
We have lived in the village for eight years so the visit was long
overdue, and we will definitely return.
On the whole, a special evening with first class service.
