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 amazing. I had ham hock and my husband had sea bass. Sadly the decor was a bit tatty. We sat in a corner and there were oil splatters on the wall and paint was peeling off the radiator. Unless there is a refurbishment I will not be revisiting the Sovereign.

    The restaurant was very busy. We had to wait over an hour for the first course. Entertainment was good but was so loud our group had to shout to each other.
    Prawn and crab cocktail was tasty. The fish n chips were tasteless and the batter was greasy. The vegetarian dishes was over cooked and the crusts was hard. They were also very salty. The child's pizza was hard and over cooked.

    Steaks were delicious

    It took a while to get served and I eventually had to get a waitress, but once she was looking after us it was great. All our meals were ok but my dads steak was dry and tough and I also saw another customer struggling with it. I don't think the chef knew how to cook it??

    Staff very slow. Waitress admitted there had been a delay of 15 mins before realising she hadn't brought the dessert menu! When it came to paying .... couple of ladies came in , stood at the bar for a good 10 mins waiting , clearly they had made a reservation. I waited a further 5 mins before I was noticed. ( there was
    No bar staff).

    I had a fillet steak.A fillet steak should be tender The one I had was tough, hard to chew full of gristle. We dine at this restaurant nearly every week and I have never had reason to complain, but this time I was really upset. The service was good, perhaps it was Mothering Sunday and very busy., I do not spoilt the whole evening for me.
