“Special Place”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I visited my brother who lives in Roundhay with my Mum and we walked to the Mansion for lunch. We hadn't booked but it wasn't a problem and we were quickly taken to our table by a very friendly waiter. To start my mum and I had a sharing platter which was different artisan breads with some olives, houmous, sun dried tomatoes and oil and vinegar in small pots, very enjoyable and my brother got the carrot soup of the day which looked yummy. To follow we all had salad Nicoise which was delightful. Nice portion size and very tasty. It isn't a cheap lunch, it was £13.50 for the salad although there are sandwiches and brunch options available. We also got a bottle of the house Merlot which was very nice and it was £22. Staff were lovely and it had a nice atmosphere. I noticed they do theme style evenings such as Opera and Spanish guitar, would definitely like to come back to one of these evenings. All in all it was a really lovely lunch, would definitely go back. The setting in Roundhay Park itself is just lovely, they have weddings here and you can see why, very impressive

“Super Venue with Excellent Service”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We had a large gathering here recently and we were looked after extremely well. The Mansion is an elegantly restored building located in the delightful grounds of Roundhay Park. We were greeted with a smile by the charming, patient, manager and friendly, attentive, competent service continued throughout from all the team. Staff make all the difference to how enjoyable an occasion is and these guys are what really made this good for us. The menu is extensive and catered to all requirements including a reasonable selection for children. We all enjoyed the food, it isn't fine dining but it is well presented, modern, decent fare. We thought prices to be about right though portions are on the smaller side. The Mansion is a really good all round venue, suited to so many occasions, be it a casual lunch, afternoon tea, or a big event or wedding.

“A perfect venue for a summer evening of fine food and jazz”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We recently held a fund-raising evening for our RNLI branch at The Mansion. Over 50 people attended and thanks to Dine's (the company that runs the venue) expert planning help, choice of band (Jazzmundo), a beautiful setting and an excellent three course meal we had a thoroughly successful evening and raised lots of money for the charity.
All Dine staff were really friendly, prompt and very helpful with all the little details that make for a well-run event. Their special care with some very complex dietary requirements was flawless.
They even collected the raffle money for us from the tables!

“BIRTHDAY PARTY”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

On 8 June I took over the Garden Restaurant at The Mansion for my birthday party. I'm struggling to find the words to describe how superb the entire function was. The atmosphere was magic, the food was delicious and the staff had been trained to perfection. People attending (and there were 70) were all of the same opinion; the organisation and expertise was second to none. The Mansion is not a café, of course, and in life you get what you pay for. However, if anyone is planning a never-to-be-forgotten birthday party, I can give you a guarantee that in Andy Burke (Manager) you will find professionalism of the highest order, as well as total understanding of your needs. Having been married at Rudding Park, Harrogate, for which I, naturally, have the highest esteem, all I can say is that the Garden Restaurant at The Mansion, whilst on a different scale, is no less capable of putting on a party of the same calibre. There is no higher praise.
