We had amazing fish & chips and pasta with seafood. Not only the food was great but the waitress was very attentive and nice! Additionally, we got delicious bread as an amuse-bouche and some candy with the bill on which the manager had written "thank you". It was a very pleasant dinner and we'll... read more

I visited Charlie Brett's for a meal with the family before the rugby on Friday. I was really impressed with the food and service! Most of us ordered the speciality haddock and chips which were fantastic (complete home made mushy peas and tartare sauce) others ordered the steak and the belly pork which were equally enjoyed. Really pleasant atmosphere in... More

I visited with my girlfriend on a Saturday evening and was surprised to see that we were the only two people in the restaurant. It remained this way for the duration of the meal. I cannot, however, fault the food - quality fish and chips and the wasabi prawns to start are definitely worth a try. A further disappointing aspect... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Unfortunately you were the only ones in as we had a table of 18 cancel last minute due to a family emergency. We are only a small restaurant therefore we couldn't fill it last minute. Its very frustrating that things like that happen but that's life! We are pleased you... More

This is the second time that I have been to Charlie Bretts Fish Restaurant and I have thoroughly enjoyed both times. This time I had the roast dinner and the Yorkshire pudding was massive! I really liked the sauce that went with the beef, it was very tasty! The food was delicious and the portions were very big. The decor... More

The service was very fast and friendly. I ate outside in the seating area. The fish and chips are served in a tray. Good value for money. Hot food freshly cooked. The quality of the food was excellent and the batter was very tasty indeed. I shall be going back. It's close to the rugby stadium.

I arrived shortly after they had opened for the afternoon/evening. The fish was cooked to order due to the time but it is among the best fried haddock I have ever had. I am not local and was introduced to this place several years ago. They have spent some money tidying up the takeaway section, all for the best. If... More

From the road it looks like I imagine old Headingley looked like..cottagey and ivy covered with the added bonus of a lovely outside eating drinking area. We ate inside which was just as nice and fit the outside appearance. We didn't order starters but were provided with oven warmed bread with olive oil and butter which (for a freebie) was... More

We called in here yesterday after noticing it on our way to Roundhay. The very pleasant waitress informed us as soon as we walked through the door that the Chef had just had to go to hospital, so they were only able to serve fish and chips, which was fine by us as that is what we were there for....

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your positive review - we really appreciate feedback. It was unfortunate that you weren't able to choose from the whole menu due to the situation but we hope that you will return when our chefs are both on and maybe try a pudding next time! Charlie Bretts More

Saw this in a magazine review and thought it looked interesting . My dining partner is a big fish fan, I am not so much. We were welcomed by a friendly waitress into modern airy dining room, quite a contrast to the cottage style of the outside, tho the modern outside furniture gave it away. There is plenty of choice...

We've been here twice now, for two family dinners, and on both occasions the food has been really very good. The place has a nice atmosphere, a couple of nice Ilkley beers, and the ONE waitress (GET SOME MORE STAFF!) is really lovely. The mussels, for a starter, are divine - fresh and creamy with plenty of onion and bacon.... More
