At 3pm on a Friday afternoon I thought it would be quieter after the lunch time rush. There were a few diners in and we were shown to a table. Waiting for our guests to join us we ordered some hot drinks; we were served a pot of tea and five minutes later the coffee arrived. Our guests arrived later and we ordered some cold drinks via the waitress but they didn't arrive and we were told they were very busy. We had to be personally obtain the drinks from the bar ourselves. Our food was ordered from a basic fixed price menu and served within a reasonable waiting time. The portions were just OK and nothing on any plate had a WOW impact. There were no staff around and nil points were scored for diner attentiveness. I had to walk around the restaurant after we had eaten to find staff to ask them for the bill. Not a good experience and I will not dine there again and I am glad we were not staying in the hotel bearing the poor service we were given.
- 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
