Yet again a delicious meal at the Navigation. This is fast becoming a favourite. We have been on numerous occasions and the food is always delicious. We ordered 4 meals from the 2 course meal deal at £11.50. All were very good. We ordered Steak and Ale pie. Liver and Bacon casserole and 2 New York Chicken. The desserts are... More

A group of over 30 seniors, we called in here for lunch having toured the town and on our way to Shibden Hall. We had pre-booked our food from the excellent and varied menu, and despite a brief power cut the dishes arrived reasonably promptly and all together, which must have taken some organising. The various portions of all seemed... More

Called into the Navigation a few times whilst passing along the canal, always found it very friendly and clean. Never tried the food but had a look at the menu and it's on our list of one to try. The whole place is always clean and there's seating outside which will be nice in the summer.

We arrived for an evening meal and were seated and ordered a member of our party requested boiled potatoes with the braised steak as the online menu states a choice of potatoes, the menu in the pub states with mash we were told that no we could not have this and left without eating. Feel veruy dissapointed... More

This review constitutes everything that is bad with Trip Advisor. It clearly states on the in house menu what option is available with each course and at the end of the day as a business we endeavour to provide quality service and products at great prices. Customers who feel that they can bully businesses by showing off and marching out... More

This place is very good for a Sunday dinner, it is as good if not better than all local rivals. Good price to go with it.

Have been here twice over the last 2 months, while visiting family and friends, both times we have had a really good time, The Hosts are very welcoming and the food has been good, the home made chips are fab. Will be using this as our meeting place from now on.

Delicious food, freshly prepared. The 2 course meal deal at £10.50 is very good value. Traditional pub food with something for everyone. The staff are very pleasant and efficient. And they also lovely local beers. Definitely worth a visit.

The Navigation is in a lovely location by the canal. There is a large car park at the rear. There is a good selection of hand pulled beers and a good range of wines and other beverages. The food is plentiful and all prepared on the premises and there is an extensive menu and always a selection of specials. I... More

The sign outside says "Warm Welcome" & "Traditional Home Cooked Food" and that's exactly what we got ... We both went for fixed price 3 course menu and it was very tasty, good sized portions and a nice pint .. or two. Will go back...
