Discovery Bay

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Enjoying the Discovery of Good Food at Discovery Bay!"

Quote:
I’m always keen to explore different tastes, so I was excited to go and take another trip to Discovery Bay for our works Christmas meal, a Caribbean restaurant in one of the back streets of Huddersfield. On my last visit, I remember being impressed with the Goat Curry and the very friendly and attentive staff. Obviously, the Christmas period is a busy time, and a period to test even the best run restaurants. Although the service was a little too slow for a lunchtime period, they certainly kept up the standards, and we enjoyed an excellent meal. Discovery Bay is a very small restaurant with maybe 30 covers or so. Given that they seem quite relaxed about diners hogging the table for hours, I...Read More

New Inn

Restaurant | "Sowood's New Inn: Good Food on the Moors above Huddersfield"

Quote:
The New Inn at Sowood, just a few miles between Huddersfield and Halifax is such a popular dining venue; there is often a wait for tables. We recently arrived early for lunch, dropped lucky with a table and discovered why the locals rate the place so highly.The New Inn is located in the village of Sowood, a great place to take a stroll along the rough pastureland and moorland of Yorkshire. The views from the pub are wonderful, although the electricity pylons let it down a little. The pub itself, is stone built and old with a low ceiling. The choice inside is a seat at the comfortable if a little dark front bar, or an open, if a little characterless, back dining area, with a large window to...Read More

Huddersfield Festival of Light

Attraction | "Enjoy Huddersfield's Festival of Light"

Festival of Light  Photo, Huddersfield, England
Quote:
As nice as Huddersfield in West Yorkshire is to live, it has to be said that there aren’t too many "must see" attractions in Europe’s largest town. The local cities of Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester often seem to put Huddersfield in the shade. Fortunately, for one night in November each year, the attractions and the fire and light come to Huddersfield for a change. If you are in the area, then the Festival of Light is an evening for mad pyromaniacs where the traditionally staid health and safety laws are suspended for an evening. Please don’t arrive wearing your old shell suit or anything acrylic; you could vaporise in seconds!Each year the local council hire an obsc...Read More

Restaurant | "A Good Basic Indian Meal at Memsahib"

It’s been quite a long time since I last ate at Memsahib near Huddersfield University and on the ring road. I stopped going because it seemed that someone in our party always ended up with a poor meal; almost like a dining equivalent of Russian roulette. Fortunately, my most recent visit turned out to be a positive experience. As it offers a true 2 for 1 meal deal until 7:00 pm each evening, a return visit swung it for me. Nawaab at the other end of town (near the bus station), also offers a 2 for 1 meal deal, but my experience is it seems that you have to argue to actually get the deal included in your bill. Memsahib does it "no quibble" and no hassle.Memsahib has been open s...Read More

Restaurant | "Tamujin, the Only Thing you Don't Do Is Cook It!"

Quote:
I confess I just don’t get it. Picture a Mongolian theme restaurant in your mind – what do you imagine? I’m thinking the harsh landscape of the steppes, a place of extreme temperatures where only grass and hardy animals survive. I’m thinking of a meagre meal of long ago dried goat meat under tents of dried goat’s skin, while the harsh wind whistles outside. Welcome to Temujin a Mongolian restaurant a million miles away from reality. There are a couple of Temujin restaurants in West Yorkshire, but I recently visited the restaurant in Milnsbridge, on the edge of Huddersfield. In this instance, the Mongolian tent looks suspiciously like a nicely refurbished traditional...Read More
