Dont know how i forget so easily how terrible the food here is! I have never had a good meal here. The service is shocking and the food is dreadful.. the location and the fact that you can sit outside and close to work draws me back in but this is definatly the last time i will be eating here. Everything is over cooked dry and tastless. Go for a drink my all means but you will wait a long time at the bar. In my opinion it needs new management, new cheif, new menu and new fresh staff.

I went here with 3 friends on the end of may bank holiday monday. Impressive views and outside space! We were seated and waited a fair while for somebody to take our order. The food was super I had the beef and merlot pie, really nice the sauce/ gravy in the pie a tad rich but overall great food. The others had burger, which looked ok. Again we had to wait a while for our bill then a while again to actually pay. I would still return here.

A modern looking pub with a great outdoor seating area. The food was really tasty and I highly recommend the Pimms Eton Mess - yum. Only bug bear: service was a tad slow.

Lovely looking pub in a great location.

Had three courses and a couple of drinks and was great value for money.

The only complaint is that the wait in between courses for a quiet afternoon was mental. Off the top of my head it was 30 mins for the starter and then a further 25 for the main. Desert followed quite quickly.

Clean friendly pub with great staff...slow chef.

Will go again though

We visited here for drinks last year when we were staying in Leeds and couldn't wait to come back to try you out for Sunday lunch.

We ate here last Sunday, with mixed reviews.

The pate was good, as were the olives and cheese fondu for starters. The pies were OK, but the Sunday lunches and the Lamb Shoulder were awful.

The Sunday lunch was a frozen special, it was awful. The veg were limp and the roast potatoes clearly frozen, soggy outer and tasteless inner. The lamb shoulder was barely there, we wondered if part of it had fallen off during cooking! Definitely not worth the money paid for it.

The crumble and creme brûlée were good, but the Pimms eaton mess tasted nothing like Pimms, hardly contained any meringue, it was all cream and about 4 strawberries which looked like they had just been flung into the dish (they still had the stalks on).

Sorry Calverley Arms, we may come here for drinks again, but won't ever eat with you again.
