To celebrate my husband's 60th birthday on 4th December, we booked a table for 15 with friends and family. The restaurant was full to capacity all through the day & the staff were excellent. The food was well presented & lovely and hot, despite our large table. It was a credit to the chef and staff, thank you all for... More

As always our visit to the Watermill lived up to our expectations. We love the informal, friendly atmosphere, good food and quiet surroundings. The lounge is comfortable for a pre dinner drink and coffee afterwards is a lovely way to round off the evening in the lounge area. The location is ideal living east Leeds and car parking is never...

As suggested by the name, the restaurant has a large water wheel feature in the centre. The menu is not large, but provided us with... More

I have met friends for lunch here twice in the last 6 months. It was at the recommendation of one of them and I agree with him that the food is very good and the dining areas are very pleasant. For me it is a restaurant to meet friends for lunch occasionally as it is quite expensive. To do it... More

Lovely steak dinner at the Watermill - it never fails to provide top class food. Wine was also very good and the staff helpful. Table reserved as requested. A great treat.

Restaurant prices, mediocre pub food. The Sunday lunch didn't match up to the pleasant surroundings. Had to ask for gravy, this arrived in a cream jug. Very disappointed but will vote with our feet.
