Just one word "Excellent" starting to become a regular visitor now, whilst bringing "Red Cross Parcel" to our Grandson at Leeds Uni. Last visit Sunday 24th and although very busy, we could not have had better service. The young waitress, sorry did not get her name, had a really great attitude and smile to go with it. Service and food really good, could not fault any part of our meal, our 6ft 4" Grandson had difficulty finishing his meal, but he managed in the end. Students appreciate good food. Will certainly come again.

This was the original Harry Ramsden's and has recently been taken over by Wetherby Whaler. Visited with friends and had the Senior Menu which was excellent value for money. The only complaint is that we did feel a little rushed, but that was probably due to the restaurant being very busy.

Another reviewer mentioned the nearby Murgatroyds who will be difficult to beat as they offer a Senior menu with a number of choices and a good price.
It was a Sunday lunch time we visited Wetherby Whaler and we were immediately taken to a table and past the pianist which we thought was a nice thing. It was very busy and seemed almost full but service was very quick, efficient and friendly.
There was a choice on the Senior menu of 2 soups, 3 main and 3 cold deserts with tea bread and butter. Portions were good sizes, well presented hot and our fish and chips were of excellent taste. If comparing with Murgatroyds WW need to give more choices and a hot dessert.
The place was clean and ok with its open and plainer old fashioned look over Murgatroyds with its tables divvied up with small partitions.
We enjoyed our visit to WW and will go again but as you will gather it does lack a little behind Murgatroyds.

Used to be the King of chipped as the original Harry Ramsden's but fell from grace under that name big style. Murgatroyds has become the number one fish and chip cafe in the area and based on this visit, the will need to improve if they are to compete.
Not bad but not memorable.

We tried The Wetherby Whaler as we live quite close and wanted to find out how good their food was.We arrived just after lunchtime, and despite it being busy we were quickly seated. I always order plaice at a fish restaurant, but I found this particular fillet very wet and really unappetising.My OH had haddock and chips and said it was OK, but pretty tasteless.Sorry WW we won't be back.
