A little bit about us …….

Hello and welcome to The Winking Stag website! We are proud to serve Holmfirth with a fine selection of cocktails and beverages, and a menu of freshly cooked Japanese food.

Our aim is to offer a relaxed environment where you can enjoy a wide range of spirits, craft beers, cocktails, bespoke gins, and fine wines. Let our talented and knowledgeable bar staff prepare something tailored to your tastes, try our cocktail of the week, and maybe venture down the steps to our cellar lounge, a perfect hideaway to enjoy all the bar has to offer.

The Winking Stag was taken over by local couple Jo and Alan in March 2018, continuing and improving on foundations built by an excellent team just over a year ago.

Our staff have been extensively trained by our manager and cocktail specialist Sam Taylor, with over 10 years of experience in the industry and an extensive knowledge on cocktails. Sam and the team will help you discover something new and exciting to drink.

Why not join the team for cocktail classes & gin tastings? Perfect for a private party, Hen or Stag.

We are so excited about our homely little bar in Holmfirth, we are confident we have a fabulous team in Sam who runs a great bar with the able support of Jade, Nick and Naomi who are passionate about what they do and welcome everyone with a smile.  

We look forward to seeing you soon.
