Good Sunday Lunch

Having had the Three Houses recommended for Sunday lunch, my wife & I visited. We had booked so we were welcomed when we arrived.

We've been here previously and have been impressed by the food as well as the ambience. However, on our recent trip were extremely disappointed by the service and food. On two occassions we were served old and poor quality food. My other half ordered a steak pie which was worse than the one worth less than £2 from Greggs. I... More

This was a restaurant that we had high hopes for. My wife and I both ordered the steak and ale pie. It came served with 5 thick chips in a side cup, a small jug of gravy and I opted to omit the mushy peas. The pie resembled a small butchers round pie with a sprig of rosemary stuck out... More

I visited as part of a group booking for Sunday Lunch food booked in advance through our group leader. I ordered Yorkshire Puddings with onion juice. Two large partly burnt puddings served almost cold on cold plates puddings filling barley there horribly flat. I ordered vegetarian lasagne as I did not want a Sunday roast. After waiting ages and reminding... More

The food was delicious, the one thing that spoiled the meal was, the food was barely warm, and it was served on cold plates

After a long week at work we just fancied nipping out for a quick meal on Friday evening. We usually go to the Castle in Sandal but that was booked up so we thought we would try The Three Houses. Table booked for 7.30pm. Long story short, we got our food at 9.05pm!!!!! Over an hour after ordering! I ordered... More

This is one of our locals and a great one to have! Unbeatable, freshly cooked pub food. If you like a great roast dinner and want the smoothest, juiciest gravy around then you must try here! Their 2 and 3 course Sunday Roasts offer succulent roast meats, delicious homemade soups, perfectly cooked seasonal vegetables and more (I'm a fan on... More
