The Tetley Bar & Kitchen
Customer Service was very slow despite not being overly busy, orders taken from tables who arrived later than us and wrong bill provided at the end.
Food I had (pie) was heavily burnt and portions were small for the cost. Wife and kids were happy with quality of their food.
Overall, cost, lack of good service let this venue down which could be great. Won’t be in a rush to return
Chairs and tables basic and chairs very uncomfortable. We had booked but the table was not set up even though it was empty. We had to ask for menus after we had been sat down for a while and there didn’t seem to be many staff around. There were mixed reviews from our party of 7 regarding the food. The 4 who had beef said it was very tough, 1 who had pork enjoyed the whole meal whilst the others was very fatty. The person who had pie said it was delicious. We asked for more gravy and were brought the smallest jug full and when we asked for more, it came when we had finished. In conclusion, 2 people enjoyed their food, 2 thought it was ok and 3 didn’t enjoy it at all. All thought the place was very basic and that the service was bad. None would go back or recommend.
We had intended going to the Tetley for some time so we went to celebrate a birthday one Thursday lunchtime. The bar area was busy but we had booked a table in the restaurant which was very quiet. We had four different meals. Fish and Chips was pronounced as very good. A good size fish. The steak pie was only just ok. It had cauliflower in it which was a bit odd. The size was quite small, pastry good. It was a corner piece which may have affected the amount of meat. The burger was declared very good. Too many chips perhaps. Cut down on servings. I had the ploughmans. Served on a board it had scotch egg, a small pork pie, Blue cheese, tetleys chutney, silverskin onions and two thick slices of bread (some butter would have been good). The scotch egg which was served warm was the highlight, the best I have had. Drinks were served promptly and the Tetley Ale went down well. I will probably go back and I do recommend it. There is a small shop selling unusual items and some nice inexpensive jewelry.
