The food was not to the usual standard on our previous visits. My daughter has gnocchi but it wasn’t gnocchi when it came. Service was great and lovely and clean but over priced for what it is

To put it simply. The best Sunday roast in Leeds. I don't get to go as often as I like due to work commitments but when I do it always lives up to expectation. Service is always impeccable and the restaurant itself is finished beautifully.

Third visit recently. First two times it was very good indeed. This time it was busy and they couldn’t cope. Long wait for food, my steak was gristly. The noise level was ridiculous, big groups of people - and all were seated in one area of the restaurant. My husband couldn’t hear what I was saying across the table. Overall disappointing.

Lovely as always and I always recommend
Only thing is the service charge that is added I always like to leave a tip when I feel I have been looked after and excellent service etc and I know it is optional but would prefer if it was not automatically added.

Our family meal was great- the staff are amazing and so knowledgeable about their menu. Disappointed that the chateuabriand had run out but I guess that’s a sign of how good it is. Looking forward to trying it next time- we’ll order it before we get there!

Love this place been a few times now and cannot fault the food whatsoever , staff are always pleasant , only fault I had last night is our table was booked for 7 we arrived in good time expecting to have a drink ,and was ushered outside to wait for our table to be ready, we was told someone would come take our drinks order we sat for 25 minutes outside waiting,and no one came to take our drink order , and we had to go back inside at 7.10 pm to remind staff we was waiting for a table, but apart from this everything else was spot on , and we will be back .

Steak was tough, salad bland no oil or any thing on it. chocolate brownie was very very dry popcorn tasted burnt rather than caramalised left the pudding after 2 mouthfuls. Such a shame as eat here every time we visit Leeds thinking of cancelling August resevation.

Tricky to find, delicious food, excellent service, a smart restaurant but very noisy with high ceilings and tiled floor, so when it's busy you really have to shout to have a conversation! Sorting out the acoustics would vastly improve this great venue.

Sorry to say that after a fantastic first Sunday lunch pre lockdown 3, this was dreadful. Belly pork was way over cooked and it and the roast potatoes sprinkled with flavouring. Why? My starter French Onion Soup was fine but my husband’s chicken wings were also very dry. Hopefully they’ll improve after some practice as it was the first Sunday inside serving since 2020.

We really enjoyed this - it was all of our first times in a restaurant since lockdown, which probably helped, but the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be back again
