Restaurant & Bar

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.

"We got married here seven years ago and have returned on the majority of our anniversary dates for a meal. The service is always exceptional and the food is delicious. It’s so cosy and we love to sit by the fire and have a coffee after our meal.” TripAdvisor 30 December 2018

The Long Bar

As its name suggests, the Long Bar occupies a lengthy stretch of the manor. To its north sits the pretty Colonnade Courtyard, of which the bar offers delightful views through its large arched window. To its south are the impressive gardens; you can access the gardens via the Bar door.

The Long Bar is the place to sit for coffee, to enjoy a bar snack or to take your pick from the extensive gin, whisky and cocktail list. Plus there is a full suite of beers, soft drinks and mixers. We stock over 30 gin brands, including some fabulous Yorkshire ones, as well as having locally-brewed Little Valley Brewery Withens Pale Ale on tap.
