Stopped off for a late Saturday lunch. We had to wait quite a while at the bar. We got served eventually.
Saw the sign that said "wait here to be served". So we did. We waited and waited. There was a member of staff nearby relaying cutlery on tables and I'm sure she saw us.
Waitress finally must have realised that the tables could wait (they weren't full and there was no-one waiting to be sat at the tables she was relaying) and seated us.
She didn't direct us to a table that she'd been relaying, there were plenty of others.
I was surprised by the menu, as the food on offer was more interesting than your usual pub fare. We both decided what to order and we waited. Again. We waited a good while for someone to take our order. Tried to make eye contact with the staff but no luck.
The waitress that did take our order was friendly. It was just a shame that we'd had to wait so long. The restaurant didn't look busy at all.
It didn't take long for the meals to arrive and we both liked our food. I ordered toad in the hole, which was nice although I could have done with more gravy and the mash wasn't great. Good value though at £6.50. I would return, but only if I thought it wouldn't be too busy as I dread to think what it is like when it is busy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the picturesque village of Calverley, this pretty 19th century inn is a slice of Yorkshire calm that's equally close to the commercial hubs of Bradford and Leeds. So whether you're planning a short break or a business trip, it makes for an ideal escape.The Caverley Arms is a fine Victorian building with 14 rooms and a cosy pub. You won't have to wander far, then, if you're in the mood for a pint of cask ale or some heart-warming, seasonally inspired food.Judging from Victorian maps, the lodge's roots date back at least to the 1850s, but its stunning views over the Aire Valley are truly timeless. The pub's garden, which occupies a beautiful spot bordered by large trees and open countryside, is the perfect place to enjoy them, especially during summer.If you're feeling more active, there's lots of great rambling nearby and plenty of attractions to keep you occupied, from Pudsey Park, medieval Calverley Hall and the stunning Kirkstall Abbey to the hustle and bustle of Leeds City Shopping Centre. ... more less
