“Great Place”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I read some of the other reviews of this excellent tearooms prior to writing my own. There are several negative reviews. There are three things I have to say about those reviews. First they are falsified and the reviewer has never been to Leckenby's. My second response is that if they've actually visited they're blatantly lying about their experience. The third thing that could be happening is that they've been written by that strange breed who for perverse reasons known only to themselves think they're clever in finding fault with any restaurant. You'd really have to go to a high level of establishment to have a better experience than you get at Leckenby's. If the place was as bad as people make it out to be I wonder why on Saturdays you have to queue to get a table. We've been going here for a long time and we see other regular customers. If you provide a bad experience you wouldn't get the many regular customers that patronise Leckenby's. I most certainly wouldn't have gone back a second time if my experience had been bad. The maagement team and staff react appropriately to customers. Customers are treated with respect and there's an honest friendliness from the entire team if customers like that style of engagement. The menu is changed from time to time so doesn't become boring. The food is of a very high standard and cooked fresh to order. But, if you really want to rate anywhere then you need to look at the attention paid to detail. Great attention to detail is paid at Leckenby's. If you're going to write a review of this place, or anywhere else, at least be honest. If you've a genuine complaint then bring it to the attention of any member of their extremely pleasant staff or one of the obliging managers. If there's a problem give them the opportunity to solve it. Don't come on here and make an anonymous complaint, unless of course you're a snide coward.

“Fantastic place!!!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

This is the best tea room I have ever been to!!! The staff were amazing and so polite upon my arrival. As I had just graduated from university I treated myself to the champagne afternoon tea.. Needles to say this was delicious, there was a wide variety of sandwiches to choose from and if you do by any chance want to substitute for any of the other food from the other afternoon tea offered they are very flexible with this. As well as the sandwiches there was a variety of cakes, I had one of the mini cakes from slatterys it again was delicious, my mother had the soup and the sandwich which was excellent value for money. I will definitely be going back there it is an absolute hidden gem and I must praise the owner for the fantastic establishment she has, the polite staff and the manager are a credit to the tea room.. Can't wait for my visit and thankyou leckenbys for the wonderful experience!

food was excellent, staff were very friendly and accommodating for myself my mum and my disabled husband. It made our shopping trip a brilliant day out, coming all the way from Cumbria.

“Friendly atmosphere, lovely place to dine”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I popped into leckenbys for a bite to eat whilst shopping in bury and the food could not be faulted. Presentation and taste of the food was excellent. The service was brilliant and the staff were very polite and helpful. It was nice to have real tea for a change aswell! Will definitely be returning on our next visit to bury.

“great place, great service”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I am a regular customer with my friends at Leckenby,s the place is spotless and the staff are friendly and also helpful. I would recommend anybody to eat there as they are one of few places in bury which also offer a gluten free menu. The management are most helpful and always ready to listen to customers comments. The food is fresh and delicious
