“Exceptional food in a stunning setting!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

My husband and I went to the Mansion for afternoon tea. The restaurant is decorated to a very high standard, i would describe it as an historic venue which has been beautifully refurbished with a modern twist.
The staff were very friendly and attentive. The afternoon tea consisted of egg mayonnaise sandwiches with spring onion, chicken and pancetta with sage and salmon with cream cheese. I don't like salmon and asked the waiter for an alternative. This was no problem at all and he recommended prawn with avocado. The sandwiches were beautifully made and were very tasty.
The scones were warm and came with a vanilla cream and strawberry jam. There was also a lovely walnut cake and also fruit cake. It was priced at £18.95 and it was worth every penny.
I will definitely be going back to the Mansion very soon,

“The best situated resaurant in Leeds, great food, wine and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

Having grown up next to Roundhay Park I have a soft spot for the place that played a central part in my youth so it does not take much to endear me to the place. The Mansion did nothing to disappoint. The evening menu is concise. Very well presented, high quality food served in a relaxed although slightly quiet atmosphere. You may also want to go for lunch where the menu is more extensive but the quality does not suffer. Service is pitched just right - attentive without being intrusive or over fussy. Good choice of wine besides. With the view out over the Park you will really struggle to find a better all round evening in North Leeds. Can be busy in the day especially if the sun is shinning but if you manage to get a seat outside and the weather is right you will be rewarded.

“Super Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2011

Came across this place while wondering around Roundhay Park having previously thought it was derelict. We gave it ago on Sunday the 5th of June and i must say we were very impressed with the complete package that comes with the Mansion.The Food was excellent if not a little pricey £13.50 for one course which consisted of the most tender roast beef i think i have ever tasted along with all the usual trimmings. The service was very friendly with our every need catered for certainly a hiden gem of North Leeds highly recommended we will be back.

“Great food, nicely presented in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2011

Went for lunch here with friends and we were all rather impressed. There was plenty to choose from on the menu, a separate children's menu (highchairs and activity sketchy thing also provided), and the atmosphere in the restaurant was laid back and relaxed..maybe due to the fact that it's right on the edge of Roundhay Park with lovely views.

The staff were friendly, food was beautifully presented and delicious and we will certainly go back again. It's not the cheapest place in town, but the attention to detail makes all the difference and is certainly worth paying that bit more for.

“Something doesn't work here.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2011

Not the best menu ever. Overpriced burger was pleasant but not worth £13! Service was below average, considering there was only 2 other couples dining I would have expected more. Apart from the setting and view I would not recommend dining here. Save your money and take a picnic to the park. Not impressed.
