Visited yesterday with family (6 of us), we got a nice table outside easily ever though the park was packed. We were quickly asked if we wanted menus to look at however it was very expensive in our opinion and probably the reason why we got seated outside at lunch time so quickly. Most of us decided not to eat due to the food prices but in total we all ordered drinks, a kids meal, pancakes and a sandwich. About 20 minutes later, dying of thirst, the drinks came with the food. Very slow but there was also a wedding on the other side of the building which perhaps made it busy and thus having an effect on speed of service. Food was average, nothing special which is what was expected when paying £8 for a sandwich. Definitely wouldn't go back for a light lunch due to value however for dinner inside perhaps. Roundhay is a nice area and quite affluent so the prices are probably ok for the area, and the setting is very nice. Overall I'd say nice for drinks on a nice day but food is not worth the price unless you think £8 sandwiches and £14 salads are reasonable.

We recently attended one the the Mansion Houses themed night and the food was excellent.

I am a great believer for value for money, and although it was quite an expensive meal it really was worth every penny. The lady singer was also very entertaining with a beautiful voice.

a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We went today for afternoon tea to celebrate my mym's 65th. As it was afternoon tea it's difficult to judge the food overall. What we had was nice and freshly baked and what I saw being brought out looked nice. The atmosphere was nice and even though it was busy we weren't rushed but allowed to enjoy our afternoon drinking tea and eating cake. Very nice!

We are regulars at the Mansion in Roundhay Park, whether its for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea or diner you will not be disappointed.
Andy and the team are fantastic, the food is excellent and the service from the friendly staff is amazing.
Sitting on the terrace in the sunshine is just lovely.

I visited The Mansion with my boyfriend and his family last weekend.

It was a special occasion so we decided to take them for lunch, and a walk in the park. We sat outside as the weather was nice, and the restaurant itself was very stuffy inside!

I had afternoon tea and it was definitely the best I've ever had in Leeds. The scone was absolutely delicious!

The only slight gripe was that 2 members of our party ordered the cod sandwich, not realising that this would come battered as it did not say so on the menu. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she didn't even acknowledge the comment or say thank you for the feed back - a little disappointing.

We also we a little disappointed that the waitress turned to say goodbye/speak to a friend who was leaving the restaurant mid way through taking our plates.

Despite the couple if slight issues with service from the one waitress, the food was delicious and the setting was beautiful - definitely worth a visit!
