Amazing food and service - only down side was a very raucous group who were drinking but not eating and making quite a mess of it pouring alcohol over the floor etc who made it impossible to have a normal conversation so we requested a move outside to escape. Unfortunately none of the outdoor heaters had been turned on and it was too cold to eat without coats etc. We were lucky and the group moved on so we were able to return to our original table. Appreciate it may be hard to manage groups who make lots of noise so hopefully our next visit will be less challenged but would have been nice if they had been asked to turn it dow just a little given we were obviously not the only ones struggling.

Thursday night new menu which didn't realise until we sat down in the bistro but no worries as what we had was lovely. Need to update your website with new offerings as it might get more people in! Not on website was the steak deal for x 2 sirloin meals with bottle of wine for £30 - bargain!
Nice cocktails also which were 2 for 1 in the bar where we moved onto later.

We have hardly been out to eat since the start of Covid and wanted to go somewhere safe so we booked for the outside dining area. All precautions were taken by the staff and the food was perfect. The noise and language from another table was the only thing that spoilt the experience.

We weren't lucky enough to be seated inside where it was warm and had a better atmosphere and the staff were more available. However, the food was delicious and we were seated and served promptly and politely. The outside heaters didn't work so it was extra chilly to dine but overall a pleasant experience.

Very busy and social distancing could’ve been better however food delicious. I had the ultimate burger which was huge and extremely tasty and my husband had the halibut which also was excellent. Would definitely visit again but not during these times.

I have been many times
And I know it’s a very difficult time but I was let down with the service
Waited ages to be served and was sat in the outdoor area and it was freezing.
I eventually went up Sara it’s in the mead hall which was so much better.
But it would have been nice to be told that was available.
It is quite noisy up there but I presume it’s because of the high roof.
It won’t put me off coming again as I live it there
Many thanks

The food was a bit disappointing, the pie was not technically a pie, and the lamb skewers was one tiny lamb chop, a bit overpriced for the size of the portions, although tasted nice.
We could have been sat in a more spacious area as well, but we were seated next to other diners when the entire lower floor was empty. The service was great

Excellent venue in cleckheaton, beautiful decor both outside and inside. They have also done an excellent job to make the place covid safe in my opinion.
We went for Sunday lunch... it is a touch on the expensive side, but, the food and place and service is excellent.
It’s a very welcome addition to cleckheaton.

Our first visit to George’s for Sunday Lunch. Extensive menus, good selection of drinks (wines, spirits, cocktails, soft drinks).
The food was well presented, top quality produce and good value for what you get.
The staff were friendly and knowledgable.
Can’t wait to go back and try the other menu!
