“A favourite in an area with a dearth of good eateries”, this is “a really well-run restaurant, with superb food and a nice location”. Chef-owner Eric Paxman worked in London (under MPW) and Australia (under Bill Granger) before returning to his hometown, where he marks his 10th anniversary in business this year. (“Eric has also ventured into PAX, a local burger bar as well – let’s hope his undoubted talent is not stretched too thinly”).

“Top-quality food and service” (the “early bird is great value for money”) makes this Lindley spot a bit of a local beacon – and one that’s shining brighter after a luxe revamp in September 2018. After his plans for a Mirfield burger joint were scuppered, the eponymous Eric launched lavish champagne and cocktail bar The Arborist, facing Eric’s, and yards from his first burger bar, PAX, as we went to press.

“In a town with almost no restaurants of note, Eric’s is the shining exception to the rule” – a “small and friendly” suburban all-rounder where “the lunches in particular are top-class”. A sibling to the chef’s hit local burger spin-off, PAX, was set to take over the old Yorkshire Building Society, in Mirfield, in early 2018.

“In what is a virtual wasteland for good eateries, Eric’s restaurant shines a beacon with consistent offerings and quality food”, as well as a “friendly and welcoming environment”; “it is to be hoped he does not spread his time too thin having opened a ‘superior’ burger joint a few doors down”.
