Can’t fault the food or service. Ben the manager looked after us, as well as serving behind the bar. Could have done with one more member of staff. Will definitely be returning.

Absolutely blown away by the food at The Golden Cock.

The sausage and mash was divine; plenty of gravy and peas and topped with a homemade Yorkshire Pudding!

And for dessert the sticky toffee pudding had it all.

Would most definitely recommend to all who visit Huddersfield!

A group of 4 of us turned up almost 2 hours ahead of our booked time. We found the staff very accommodating and anxious to please and we were promptly shown to a table. The menu had an excellent range of choices including no-dairy desserts. This was a touch of true luxury to dairy intolerant diners. Our meals were very well presented, and this was exceeded only by the of the standard of cooking. it’s very likely that we’ll be returning very soon.

Lovely food and you can tell it's homemade. Steak cooked perfectly. Portions a little on the small side but still filling. Service excellent.

Last minute booking for Sunday lunch, menu not over complicated but quality of food and portion size was spot-on.
Beer was good too.
Got a pat on the back from wife and daughter for choosing well.
Happy days!

Very enjoyable meal. Only issue was the tiramisu pudding which was still frozen! I had to defrost it in the radiator.

Overall the experience was wonderful. The only fault we can find might be the length of time for the food to come. We were booked in for 12.30 and arrived about 12.20. Our order was taken at about 12.25 and our meal arrived around 12.50It wasn’t busy when we arrived. But once the food arrived it more than made up for the wait, it was delicious and there was plenty of it. The desserts were also scrumptious, especially the apple and blackcurrant crumble. We had Sunday roast, one pork and one beef, both were fantastic. The pub itself is clean and has a lovely atmosphere, the decor is olde worlde which makes you appreciate the age of the building. We will definitely visit again.

The food was nice, I ordered fish and chips, was meant to come with tartar sauce, it didn't. Some of the menu wasn't available to order. I heard other tables moaning about this too.
The service was very poor. We would have stopped for dessert, we had even picked it however it took that long for them to ask us we wanted to leave and got the bill. Such a shame as we live local and had already read online the service was poor.
You are missing out as we would have ordered more drinks and desserts given the opportunity. Disappointing!

On a VFM basis the food was acceptable.
Quicker the owners of the establishment sell it back into private hands the better. Potential for the place is great, as previously shown many years ago, but it needs a connect to return the place to its former glory.
Extending and turning it into a hotel might be an option given the size of the grounds.
The next question does not give an option to expand on an answer. Would I recommend it - try it for yourself.

It proved to be a very long wait for reheated frozen fare - I should have gone to Iceland - it took 1 and 1/4 hours between ordering and getting the three meals - but at least two other tables who arrived after we had ordered got their food first, so I guess we were unlucky - no service, no explanation, no contrition. It was a quiet Saturday lunch, so few excuses to be so tardy with only 5 covers in the restaurant. We won’t be going back.

I had the duck and mediterranean vegetables. Duck was really tender - meat fell off the bone and veg were nicely al dente. Service was attentive - no problem. we had a 7.30pm booking but restaurant wasn’t anywhere near full hence slightly lower rating for ambience.
