  1. Gringo's Huddersfield – for a cheap and cheerful dinner with friends

You can't go wrong with heading to Gringo's Restaurant for a laid-back dinner with friends. This cosy hangout offers American and Mexican-style food with generous portions at a great price – what more could you want?

Pro-tip: Gringo's offers a two-for-one menu from Wednesday to Sunday. It's perfect for sharing with friends – but be sure to book a table.


  1. Grappolo – masterful Italian food in the heart of Huddersfield

When it comes to Italian food in Huddersfield, it's hard to beat Grappolo.

We think they have some of the best pizza in Huddersfield, but that's not all – their menu ranges from comfort food classics to healthy plates and salads. If nothing else, head to Grappolo for the excellent service and homely atmosphere. 


  1. Harvey's Bar & Kitchen – stunning food in an intimate setting

Are you looking for a romantic date-night spot, celebrating a birthday, or wanting to treat yourself to something special? Whatever the occasion, Harvey's range of sharing-style tapas and larger plates is perfect for a special night out.

Harvey's Bar & Kitchen is one of the more expensive restaurants on our list, but it's worth saving up for if you want a little taste of luxury on a special occasion.


  1. Arcade Coffee & Food – top-notch coffee and brunch

Arcade Coffee & Food is a Huddersfield institution and an unrivalled student favourite. Head here on a Monday morning, and you'll undoubtedly see Hud Uni students flocking here for their pre-class caffeine kick.

Arcade has the best coffee in Huddersfield, hands down. And with delicious food to match, it makes for a fabulous brunch spot late on a Sunday morning too.


  1. Imran Indian Takeaway – the best takeaway in Huddersfield

One of life's greatest pleasures is grabbing a good takeaway on your way home from uni.

Imran Indian Takeaway's menu, complete with crowd-pleasers and lesser-known delicacies, is famous in Huddersfield and can do no wrong. Add to this the fact that Imran stays open until midnight from Monday to Saturday, and you can see why Imran is a top Huddersfield takeaway.
