MRS Beryl Hunt from Kirkburton is a regular visitor to the Gray Ox at Hartshead featured in Out And About last Friday.

She agrees that the food is of the highest standards, but was alarmed that the prices quoted by our reviewer, Hilarie Stelfox, might deter people from dining there.

Hilarie ate from the full price menu on a Saturday night.

Mrs Hunt says the pub has a specials menu plus an early bird from 6pm to 7pm and from noon until 2pm from Monday to Friday. It costs £9.95 for two courses or £11.95 for three.

Mrs Hunt said: "It’s wonderful value and we haven’t noticed any difference in portion sizes between the specials and the normal menu. The choice is a bit limited, that’s all.’’
