Featured Sowerby Bridge Restaurants
1. The Moorcock Inn British, Modern restaurant in Sowerby Bridge Moorbottom Lane - HX6
“It came out of nowhere!” – “You will need your satnav” to find this lonely pub that feels marooned on’t moors (but is actually quite near the M62). “From the outside, it’s a bare, unadorned building, and is pretty much the same inside, with a distinct lack of frills and ornamentation”. Under new ownership since February 2018, it’s immediately making a major name for itself (including in the national press) – “just hope it doesn’t get too busy now the secret is out!”. “A former sous-chef from respected Belgian restaurant, ‘In De Wulf’, has arrived in Calderdale and is doing extraordinary food”. “They make their own charcuterie and sourdough bread and cultured butter” and “with two repurposed pizza ovens they make their own charcoal and have an impressive charcoal stove-BBQ contraption”. “When it comes to the resulting food, it’s a sort of Basque Etxebarri meets Nordic on the Pennine moors, or maybe a sort of Rogan-style for people who like to eat heartily rather than be merely titillated”. “Exquisite!” Service is “really friendly and knowledgeable” too. “The wine list is apparently largely natural, but I had one of the best pints of bitter I’ve had in a long time”. “It’s a complete gem – I’ve now been nine times since it opened!”
2. Gimbals International restaurant in Sowerby Bridge 76 Wharf St - HX6
Janet & Simon Baker’s eccentrically named (after a compass stabiliser) and oddly decorated stalwart (est. 1995) remains “very welcome in a surprisingly underserved area” owing to its good-value seasonal food.
