Manor House has become a very impressive place after the owners transformed a derelict property…
The Lantern Room
“Sumptuous modern design and food to match.” - AA Inspector
HUDDERSFIELD, WEST YORKSHIRE
Manor House is an impressive place, transformed from dereliction by the owners who almost entirely rebuilt it. Originally built for a local mill owner, these days it’s a contemporary masterpiece and a truly impressive addition to the West Yorkshire scene, usefully handy for Leeds and Manchester, and a fascinating mixture of period detail and sumptuous modern design. Everything has been carefully planned and arranged to provide a cossetting, intriguing and subtly glamorous backdrop to your short break or celebratory weekend away. The Lantern Room, with its stunning floral ceiling, exposed brick walls and fab forest green banquette seating, is a suitably decadent setting for a short menu (four choices at each course) of very seasonal modern British dishes, produced with skill from superb ingredients, some of which are foraged locally. This is proper fine dining – precisely and accurately prepared with great technical skills well to the fore and supported by a diverse wine list, arranged by tasting style. The food all looks very pretty, but there’s a real depth of knowledge and understanding behind the likes of a beautifully presented starter of cured Whitby mackerel, beetroot, damson, apple and horseradish. All the different elements are painstakingly arranged, but rest assured, you can be confident that the mackerel is full of fresh flavour, and the distinctive damson elements of the dish are well balanced by the apple and horseradish, with textural contrast from the beetroot. Next up, wild peppered venison loin, muscade, pumpkin, girolles, chestnuts and chocolate is a top notch winter choice, with succulent venison enhanced by a deep and silky chocolate sauce. Finally, a technically accomplished dish delivering a big visual impact, the 70% Valrhona chocolate, peanut praline mousse, salted caramel and raspberry sorbet is a classic selection of flavours making for a sophisticated dessert.

About the area
Discover West Yorkshire
Everybody knows that Yorkshire has some special landscapes. The Dales and the Moors first spring to mind, but what about West Yorkshire? That’s Leeds and Bradford isn’t it? Back-to-back houses and blackened mills… Certainly if you had stood on any of the hills surrounding Hebden Bridge a hundred years ago, and gazed down into the valley, all you would have seen was the pall of smoke issuing from the chimneys of 33 textile mills. But thankfully, life changes very quickly in West Yorkshire. The textile trade went into terminal decline, the mills shut down forever and in a single generation Hebden Bridge became a place that people want to visit.
The surrounding countryside offers walking every bit as good as the more celebrated Yorkshire Dales; within minutes you can be tramping across the moors. And this close proximity of town and country is repeated all across West Yorkshire. There’s such diversity in the area that you can find yourself in quite unfamiliar surroundings, even close to places you may know very well. Take time to explore this rich county and you will be thrilled at what you find to shatter old myths and preconceptions.
