Come hungry, leave happy!

This is Yorkshire, so food and drink really matter. Don’t be fooled though, we’re not just talking big helpings and traditional English favourites. Yes they’re on the menu here, but you’ll also find exciting specialities from all over the world. In fact, when it comes to eating and drinking, it’s more like New Yorkshire here.

From Korean and Thai street food to Greek and Italian restaurants, there’s a world of great eating crammed into Halifax. If you want fresh fish & chips or giant Yorkshire puddings we’ve got those too, as well as the big chains for things like pizza and burgers. Wonderful delis and coffee shops are dotted around town, or you can head to the nearby hills for quaint country pubs serving amazing local produce.


There’s great drinking here as well, whatever your tipple. Traditional pubs and sports bars rub shoulders with hipster micropubs and a popular LGBT show bar. You can mix it up with a cocktail at one of the town’s trendy new venues, or choose from dozens of different gins at various speciality bars. Relax; our Purple Flag award means the nightlife here is friendly and safe (unlike some of those cocktails).
