Overpriced average food and a head chef with an attitude problem, not sure how it has its good reputation. Won't be returning.

A really cosy pub/bistro with great food, lovely traditional Sunday lunches and special evenings. Their 'Thai' night is always superb but have to book well in advance for that. We go at a least once every 2-3 weeks and always enjoy. Very affordable also.

Firstly, just to be clear, the Butcher's Arms is actually in the village of Hepworth, and not in Holmfirth. It is a quaint village with lovely architecture and amazing views, and the pub is the only place to eat in the centre of the village...More
