Firepit, Halifax
Graham Clark, Features Writer
The last time I visited the Firepit was in Beverley over 18 months ago: the experience was mixed - the food was good but we had to wait over 30 minutes for the coffee to arrive, it felt like they had gone to Columbia to get it!

The time before that was when the first one opened in Bingley. On walking into the venue we were confronted with loud rap music, I thought we had walked into a Public Enemy gig.

Thankfully they seem to have got things right at the Halifax new opening. The staff are customer facing and friendly, the food is tasty and the venue sits comfortably between on trend and welcoming.

It was buzzing even on a Tuesday night with a mixture of couples, colleagues sharing an after dinner drink and the casual lone drinker. I dare say though that the sports themed bar would have a different clientele come Friday and Saturday nights!

I sampled the Nachos as a starter. Priced at £6.95 the BBQ beans, Tex-Mex cheese sauce, sour cream guacamole, jalapeños, chipotle salsa and pick de gallo with added pulled pork (£2 extra) was a tempting offer. There was enough to share and it would be a meal in itself.

They do 6 variations on the burger theme. My sister chose the Bacon Cheese Burger priced at £9.95. A tasty alternative to the usual burger chain offering it was a filling meal.

I decided upon the New York Strip - a 12oz, 28 day aged Sirloin steak cooked over flame and charcoaled to my liking, served with onion rings, alongside a very strong and robust blue cheese sauce. Priced at £22.50 it might seem expensive but costs far less than what some of their competitors are charging.

We shared the Sundae of Brownie, Oreos, marshmallows, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream which concluded a satisfying dining experience.

They do have a disabled toilet in the venue, but for the more fit and able it's a two storey walk up to the shared facilities with the Potting Shed which has the same owners.

We left with full stomachs and thankfully ears empty of loud rap music.
