Originally built as a brewery in 1829, The Sovereign near Huddersfield is situated in the hills and valleys on the edge of the beautiful Peak District. Offering brilliant and well-loved British pub cuisine, the views and food can be savoured from the pretty al fresco garden and by the cosy hearth. Favouring a welcoming, warm colour scheme, the eye-catching mirrors and vintage wood furnishings aid the rustic feel.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Sovereign menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Sovereign Rest ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Nestled in the country, The Sovereign is just 4 minutes’ drive from Shepley Train Station, or 14 minutes to Huddersfield.

    The food was good and can't blame the service but we had the valentines menu which was not worded properly my partner has a course with her steak but was never told it was an extra charge and I wanted the chocolate trio but this classed as 2 puddings so was extra so I declined it spoilt what would have been a lovely night

    First time back at Sovereign for many years, the service was excellent with a good choice on the menu. However as always the wine and beer prices I think are excessive.

    Food was delicious!! Peach melba Creme brulee a must.Cosy setting with real open fires. Shame majority of staff were miserable and showed no interest in their costmers, asked for last orders at 10pm, pay bills and leave as there were only 6 people left in the restaurant and they wanted to shut up!! Service with a friendly smile wouldn't go a miss!!! Whole experience made us feel a nuisance and unwelcome.

    Regretfully our Sunday lunch did not live up to expectations,my roast beef was very over cooked and tough , and the veg was under cooked. My friend was not happy with his meal, the glass my sherry trifle came in was gritty on the outside from the dishwasher, and the contents were not as good as usual. After removing our main course plates the waiter forgot about us and we had to go to the bar to order our desserts, WE eat here about every 3 weeks and this was the first time we have found any fault, I understand that some of the staff were new. This may be the problem.
