Description: In a quiet leafy lane in the Headingley conservation area, Haley's is a convivial yet refined hotel just a few miles from Leeds city centre. The elegant restaurant offers stylish modern British cooking with inventive flair, from monkfish stuffed with black pudding and wrapped in Parma ham to lamb rack with juniper and thyme crust.

Having ordered a meal - looking forward to Sausage and Mash with summer vegetables I was very disappointed. The starter was fine but the mash on the main course had so much mustard in it that it was actually unpleasant, it was inedible!!
The waitress was very attentive and offered an alternative but too late!!
I was to say the least a little disappointed - chefs cock-up!!

The hotel is very well located, central yet a decent distance away from ceaseless traffic of Headingley...and the busy shopping centre. Room was comfortable and well appointed. What went for breakfast was a great disappointment...the food was obviously cooked en masse early on and left to dry on the hotplate. A pity that we found out about at least a couple of good venues for a fresh breakfast within a 5 minute walk. Will certainly return to stay, but will skip breakfast at Haley's. Also suggest a good daily airing of the property, as the public areas smell of cooking.

Stayed here a few times , rooms are a good standard no complaints with them , only breakfast was a big let down tinned grapefruit and tinned orange no other fruit no yogurts tinned mushrooms and no chance of a fried egg the only eggs were watery scrambled egg the toast was cold and leathery had to serve yourself from a over crowded small area. Gone are the days when staff asked politely would you like tea or coffee bringing to the table!!! As for the staff not being able to fry an egg , two of them wondering around collecting used plates. Shame one of them don't take a course on frying a quick egg and keeping customers happy!! A breakfast muffin would had gone down well , but no nothing like that. Payed for a cooked Sunday breakfast as we booked and was looking forward to it. What a shame Haley's !!

Being a local resident, I am always looking for somewhere nearby that serves a quality and good value Sunday lunch - particularly useful for when friends and relatives are visiting, or when you just can't be bothered to cook yourself! Several people had recently mentioned that the Sunday lunch here was good, so my friends and I took the plunge today and we all really enjoyed our meal. There are 5 good choices of starter and 6 puddings at £3.95 each, coffee and mints at £1.50 per person and the main event, the carvery at £7.95 per person. You can choose up to 3 of the 5 meats on offer (gammon, pork, turkey, beef and lamb when we visited), and a great selection of fresh vegetables (buttered cabbage, carrot and swede mash, roast parsnips, green beans, sliced carrots and brocolli and cauliflower cheese), cheesy mash, roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, stuffing, chipolatas, gravy and various sauces. What stood out for me was the choice of meats (rarely have I seen lamb on a carvery, however there wasn't much left when we got there at 2.00pm and we heard someone mention that they came early just to make sure they got some lamb!) and the quality of the accompaniments. I may be wrong, but everything seemed homemade including the stuffing. The vegetables were not the watery over-cooked specimens often seen on carveries, but fresh and al dente, and the serving dishes were regularly replenished. The chipolatas were of also of good quality, and the slices of meat made for a good portion. Thank goodness we didn't have a starter, and we certainly didn't have room for a pudding! It's worth mentioning that this is a beautiful property in a lovely quiet setting, just off the main Otley Road through Headingley. The dining room is light, bright and airy and the service was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. There's free parking in the hotel grounds or on-street. We did book, but apart from special days like Mother's Day or Easter Sunday, I would imagine it's fine to turn up on spec.
