We have just returned from a flying visit to Yorkshire, unfortunately for a family funeral. We chose King's Croft as it was the venue for the funeral tea. We were not disappointed. We stayed in room 30 one of the bungalow rooms, it was light, airy and clean with wonderful views from the patio doors. Dinner was good and served... More

We got married here yesterday, the staff were absolutely amazing, attentive and the toastmaster was incredibly cool, calm and collected. Nothing was too much trouble from booking right through to this morning. The room was set up perfectly by the staff and I couldn't have imagined it to have been any better. The food was fantastic too! Everyone had an... More

I have used this place for quite a few years. I have watched it grow and develop.It seems now though as they would rather cater for large parties to maximise their profits.The food is still good but the prices have gone up to compensate for all the improvements they have done. Drinks prices have also gone up. Previously you could... More

This was yet another disappointing lunch at the restaurant. Whilst everyone else had a varied choice for lunch, the vegetarian option was ..... cheese sandwich. 2 small slices of bread ( the meat eaters had 'doorstops'! The cheese was grated to infinity and the salad minuscule. The chips looked tasty but I suspect cooked in dripping as there was an... More

An excellent wedding venue with stunning landscapes across the historic contours of Pontefract. A large and vibrant venue with young modern staff mixed with experience and class. Probably the best wedding venue around for miles.

Visited the carvery Sunday 12th. Staff all pleasant and accommodating, and three meat choice (Beef, turkey and gammon) all actually really good, beef especially so.
