Thunderbridge Lane, KIRKBURTON, Huddersfield, HD8 0PX
Hidden in a charming hamlet of weavers' cottages in a secluded wooded valley, The Woodman Inn comes up trumps in any search for the perfect Yorkshire inn. Real ales are from county breweries, including the sublime Bradfield Farmers Blonde. Sup this in a long, cosy, log-fire warmed beamed room wrapped around the bar or in the restaurant, where rustic gastro-food makes the most of Yorkshire's produce. Pork belly, ham hock and black pudding terrine with fig and pear chutney; or slow-cooked lamb shoulder, braised red cabbage, potato purée and redcurrant sauce are just two dishes to try.
