I went here with my wife and 2 year-old daughter after many recommendations about the food and setting. I was massively let down. The setting is nice and airy but really, honestly it's just a tiled canteen. Yes the decor is nice and I did appreciate it but like I say, to me it felt like they'd ruined a lovely room/hall by just plonking a canteen in it.
The food was also well below par. I was expecting a menu for a start but no, there was a small range of sparsely-filled sandwiches and bagels and what looked like pasta bake. Maybe I had visited on an off-day, and maybe my expectations are too high given the range of fantastic places in Leeds but the food was expensive for what it was.
I ordered a parma ham and cheese bagel, that as it turned out was just a ploughmans and not very well filled. It came with a very small, slightly warmed leaf salad with a balsamic dressing. No halved cherry tomatoes, cucumber, just a small pile of warm, vinegary leaves.
I also ordered a decaf latte and it tasted like hot water that someone had poured quarter of a reasonable latte into. Weak and almost tasteless.
My daughter got one of the children's box packs and the sandwich was appalling. It was just ham and cheese and had been squashed and compressed beyond recognition. It may certainly have ended up that way in my daughter's hands, but it left me feeding my daughter my own sandwich, because at least that had salad.
I won't be returning, not even for a coffee and a sit down. I love the gallery and the Henry Moore but I will be making a b-line for somewhere else if I need to eat, drink or meet with my friends and family.
