Went here for breakfast as our usual cafe had closed. Usual breakfast fare - we ordered a regular breakfast and the large version, which was really large, two or three of everything, and an cakes with syrup. All arrived quickly and efficiently, although the hash browns were a little overlooked. Lovely open fire, pleasant waitress and clean surroundings. Suits all ages from young to old and those of us in between

My wife & I visited the Bowling Green, Otley, this week, which is part of the Wetherspoons chain. We regularly eat/drink at different Wetherspoons venues, and although the food is never spectacular, it is usually adequate.
HOWEVER.....the Bowling Green in Otley is the worst pub/restaurant I have ever been in for service/staff/comfort.
We waited forever to order drinks as the staff were busy talking to each other & texting. We then waited even longer for our food as all the staff had mysteriously disappeared.
Their attitude was disgusting, we felt like we were putting them out by daring to ask for food & drinks. They were miserable, ignorant, sloppy & downright rude. I understand that the staff might not get very well paid, but they do not have to show this to customers.
We will CERTAINLY not be going back to this place again.

Pub was quite busy, we seated and only one person seemed to be doing the whole places tables.
Tried various times to get her attention as the table we had already had spilt drink leftovers on it.

We let it pass after ten minutes wiping it ourselves with a cloth. Decided to order food at the bar, a manager called Chris chose to take our order, this person seemed very disgruntled with his job and was conversing with his co-worker infront of us all saying how his upper managers have told him to "like the hours or [--] off and get a new job" and "how [--]" his job was.

Atmosphere was set as a we are a inconvinience, food was quite nice and arrived promptly, don't think id go there again.
