315 Bar & Restaurant
315 Wakefield Road, Lepton, Huddersfield HD8 0LX
01484 602613
Head Chef Jason Neilson started his career at Raymond Blanc’s two Michelin-starred restaurants before moving to 315, and this elegant restaurant has carved out a reputation for fine English dining with a healthy European influence. Highlights on the menu include the wild mushroom Feuille, breast of Barbary duck and chilled cherry soufflé. Look out for suggested wine pairings which will complement your chosen dishes perfectly.

Hide & Hoof Restaurant
Delph House Farm, High Flatts, Denby Dale, Huddersfield HD8 8XY
01226 762551
Head to Delph House Farm and treat yourself to a full breakfast or a sublime eggs benedict – the perfect way to start the day. If you’re stopping by for lunch, one of their juicy burgers is perfect for refuelling. Enjoy yours in the restaurant or in one of their dog-friendly heated booths.

Eric’s Restaurant
73–75 Lidget Street, Lindley, Huddersfield HD3 3JP

Eric Paxman’s fine dining restaurant has won multiple national awards. He’s worked with Bill Grainger from Saturday Kitchen, and in some of Sydney’s best kitchens, but his roots remain firmly in Yorkshire. The range of dishes on offer revolves around local produce, including pan-roasted breast of pigeon and crispy breaded brie with wild honey, mustard and pink pepper dressing.

The Three Acres

Set in the beautiful Pennine countryside, this charming country inn offers seasonal dishes which change regularly, so make sure to stop by frequently. Expect unique flavours like pastrami-cured sea trout, hot and sour duck soup and buttered spring asparagus with crispy duck egg.

The Olive Branch Inn
Manchester Road, Marsden, Huddersfield HD7 6LU
01484 844487
The Olive Branch Inn has been a firm favourite in Marsden since 1830. Dine in the atmospheric restaurant or – if weather permits – on the elevated terrace, enjoying the dramatic views along with your pressed pork belly with mustard mash, black pudding bon bons and garlic and rosemary sauce, and of course something from their extensive wine, ale and gin menu to wash it down.
