“Its very good”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

The restaurant is very good starting with a friendly attentive young staff who seem to enjoy working there providing a good standard of service. The food is very good with a good range of choice on the menu and the Tetley infused beef and dumpling stew is particularly good although it should also be offered as a pie. This is gastropub end dining with prices to match but overall its very good and a great addition to the Leeds dining scene. The building itself is worth a look around for its historic value and it will be even better when it acquires the artistic content it needs to fill its empty spaces.

“The Tetley is Tops”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Visited the retaurant last Saturday with family,our first visit. Very impressed with the menu choice,the way it was presented and the welcoming & friendly staff. Most of the party had a Ploughmans but I had the Homity pie with a nice side dish of cabbage with bacon & maple syrup. Forced ourslves to afters -the chocolate desserts arrived in glass jars.Also an interesting choice of ice-cream flavours. A very pleasant & relaxing meal.Bit of a walk if you're on foot but worth it,or parking is available nearby.

“Lunch with Friend's”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We had The Tetley recommended by a friend who had been to a retirement do recently,and as our friends live some distance from us we meet half way Leeds is a good city, accessible on the train. We arrived early and had a look around the exhibition space, unfortunately no exhibition this week. We decided to eat a little early and we were shown to our table by a very helpful member of staff. The menu is quite extensive with some good old English dishes. After due consideration three of us had the Tetley Beef stew & dumpling, with side orders of vegetables, cauliflower, beans & chestnuts, & cabbage, one of us had the salmon. All arrived piping hot and well presented , the stew in individual bowls ( with bread on the side), plenty of it and lovely dumplings crunch and very tasty, the vegetables well cooked hot and again delicious. The salmon was "beautiful" and none left on the plate. We all commented how good the food was, we finished off sharing Rhubarb & custard (we shared 2 between the four of us), cooked to order and again arrived piping hot, more than enough for 2 people. The staff were very attentive and the service quick, we will re-visit.

“A little gem, near the city centre”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We parked in the car park and spotted the Tetley and decided to do lunch.
I have the pantry platter which came on a lovely wooden board, very nicely presented.
A variety of foods on the platter made it a very filling meal , and unfortunately I had no room left for the sticky toffee pudding that I had spotted on the menu.
The music was not too loud, and it was the perfect place to chat. The waiting staff were attentive without being to over the top.
Will definitely go back to eat again. The Tetley is a wonderful building, and I'm glad it has been preserved.

“Worst breakfast I've had in a long time”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Unfortunately the Tetley Full English Breakfast was really poor. It all felt rather overcooked and lacking freshness, a bit like a low budget hotel buffet breakfast. The bacon and beans were particularly awful. It was also luke warm on arrival. For the price we were expecting better.

Thank you very much for your feedback and I am very sorry that you felt that way about the Breakfast. I can assure you that our breakfasts are cooked fresh and I am sure that if you had mentioned to a manager they would have been able to resolve the problem for you on the day.
