Set against a backdrop of grand listed buildings in Huddersfield's St George's Square, the festival is a huge free event – attracting more than 100,000 food lovers each August.
With the most microbreweries in the UK, Huddersfield has some great real ale pubs. If you fancy making a day of it, climb aboard the transpennine express train and take the Rail Ale Trail, made famous by Oz Clarke and James May – real ale enthusiasts only please!
Take a trip around the world in Huddersfield; try the Brazilian Botofogo, Lebanese MedOne, Indian Chilli Lounge, Persian Apadama, Mexian Gringos or Eastern delights at Thai Sakon (to name just a few). Dance the night away at variety of interesting bars and clubs, or join us for the annual Caribbean Carnival in July. The Aakash is reputedly the largest Indian restaurant in the world and housed in a Grade II listed former Congregationalist chapel.
Take afternoon tea at Neaversons Tea House & Restaurant, with its art deco interior, or head to T&Cake to find out why it's a Good Food Guide favourite. Also in the Guide is Eric's Restaurant in Lindley, where fine dining features locally sourced produce and a seasonal menu.
