We were in Town for an event at the picture dome - room was basic and somewhat dated but bearing in mind the room rate was value for money. With the rooms being over the bar there was a bit of noise until closing Breakfast was excellent and highly recommended.

Didn't stay here but chose to eat here for the two nights we stayed. Very pleasant pub, landlady and the chap from the kitchen were great. Locals were entertaining and friendly. The food was great value for money and superb. Steak night on Friday was amazing. Well worth a visit.

We were in Holmfirth for a weekend conference recently and on the Saturday went in search of a place to eat and ended up here. Ordered a steak and a 'Yorkshire burger' the food was served quickly and was hot. They stack your plate up with nice hot food which is fairly priced. We ended up going back on Sunday... More

Did not stay here but called in for a drink while we where waiting for our accommodation elsewhere to become available. Decided to have lunch there. Small menu and reasonably priced. It was so good ended up eating there a couple of times, so we tried something different each time and was never disappointed. The locals where very friendly and... More

We visited Holmfirth over a weekend and searched for a place to have a drink after dinner. We poked our heads into the Elephant & Castle to have a look and were intercepted by a disgruntled gentleman at the bar. "What do you want?" he asked abruptly.
