£15 for 2 courses on the early bird menu. Restaurant was nice and busy on a Thursday night which was good to see. Food was all great, pork belly main particularly nice. Both the staff serving were friendly and helpful. Nice to have somewhere like this in Wakefield, will definitely be returning.

I took my wife for a valentines meal and we were not disappointed. The menu is original and based on local products. The food is delicious, portions are on the smaller side but the flavours are rich and varied so you don't feel underfed. By the time dessert arrived we were full! This was not the cheapest meal but it... More

Good atmosphere from a relaxed establishment with very good quality food, my son and daughter in law opted for the lamb wellington, my wife and I opted for paying the supplement (£6 PP) for the fillet steak to share, both were exceptionally well presented and the steak was huge and perfectly cooked, only criticism would be that the service was...

You would not expect to find this type of restaurant in Wakefield and it is wonderful that Liam and his team have made 'Iris' such a success. Each time we have visited this restaurant, we have not been disappointed. The food has been amazing and unlike a lot of other places, the price of the wine is very reasonable.

Went here for dinner on a very cold Thursday. It was trying to snow outside but the waiter put two tables together next to a radiator and we thawed out quickly. We had two courses (£24 a head), starters and mains. Two of the party had the excellent smoked haddock Scotch egg and I had scallops in the hole, which... More

This was one of the best meals we have had in Wakefield in a long time - maybe even ever!! We had avoided the Iris as we had a disasterous meal with them shortly after the restaurant opened. More fool us!! We shared crispy pig ears -delicious. Then I had the coronation rabbit terrine and my husband had the smoked... More

Genuinely a piece of heaven. This gem is fit for the Queen. The food is consistently amazing. The staff are efficient, kind and most welcoming. The owner and chef is adorable. He is a complete inspiration. His food and menu is by far the best Wakefield. Amazing place to work I'm told too. All for now guys. Next review up... More
