user reviews of Carniceria, Holmfirth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Only recently started visiting (only twice actually) so I can be objective.
I like it, and I like the restaurant as well. The beers have been excellent both times, the tapas brilliant and great value for money (please if you go complain about the cold plates). Also the young staff are warm, human and efficient, although I got the impression that could all collapse quite easily.
What it's like just for drinking I can't quite say, though it looked ok to me; young crowd but that's fine. There's nothing much new under the sun when it comes to village wine bars now.
Compare it to the Nook? Not really! I've been going in the Nook on and off for nearly 30 years and it's always been to varying degrees a shithole, usually with poor quality beer. God knows when its halcyon days that gave it a reputation were.

Mirrortown.

You are about 15 years too late. This bar was really happening in the mid 90's. When it opened it changed Holmfirth and the expectations of the locals.

At that time, the Nook was also exceptionally busy. You are just too late to the party, while you arrived fashionable late the party had moved on.

The real cause of the demise of both pubs was the death of the driving force and the subsequent family war over control and direction of the business.

Though in reality neither the of the bars were that good, just that locals held to the tradition.

Curate's egg indeed. The restaurant area around the back was completely empty, but as visitors to Holmfirth, we decided to give it a try. The menu was eclectic and they're possibly trying to do too much. Nontehless, The pork chop sourced from a local butcher's was truely superb - well cooked, seasoned, moist and great vegetable acompanyments. The ginger cheese cake for desert was too rich for my liking, but a good flavour nontheless.

A real curate's egg of a place. My first experience was a Sunday daytime birthday meal, which I thought rather good. An unexpected bonus was a couple of handpumped ales which I really didn't expect on first sight. Beer was fine but a bit cold. We've been back two or three times for a beer and we've both had the same impression that the place is almost but not quite.... We're comparing it with similar bars in Manchester suburbs which are really popular but can't nail down why it is not as good. It could be a really happening place. I think it is owned by the same folks as the Nook next door. Neither place is quite right.

A tapas and 'trendy' drinking bar. I've been twice on a Saturday night and it's been practically empty both times. Shame, as it has all the ingredients to be quite a popular bar.
