    The Sunday lunch menu was limited to 2 starter 2 mains and 2 puds. It was expensive for what you got. The portion was small. You got a small piece of chicken and very rare beef, we weren’t asked how we wanted it cooked. I prefer beef or chicken not both. The sticky toffee pudding was average nothing exciting. However the service and staff were good. We were visiting the area.

    We were unaware it was a family day with a very loud children’s entertainer x We appreciate your efforts to pull in diners if this group but it wasn’t what we wanted x We didn’t feel it was of Michelin star standard but it was a good meal nevertheless.

    I had two courses that looked great and tasted amazing. I’m intolerant to gluten and alcohol so don’t usually find much choice in restaurants, but even the sticky toffee pudding was ok for me to eat, and it was delicious.

    I called Forde and there was no chance of getting in for Sunday dinner until 6pm as my wife and I wanted Sunday lunch but I was informed the Kings arms next door had a team there from Forde who were doing the same menu and would probably get us in they did and our lunch was excellent service was good and the selection of real ales was outstanding in fact if you are a real ale fan I’d say use the kings arms instead of the restaurant !

    We love the food, drinks selection, staff and ambience. It’s our favourite local pub. My only wish is that beer prices wouldn’t keep climbing. A good drink is about a fiver. So a round for two is a tenner a pop. But other then that, it’s a great place to hang out.

    Booked through open table but when we arrived they hadn't checked the bookings for the last 2 days so no table had been reserved. Luckily they had a table available at the last minute. Food took 40 minutes to arrive after ordering which was a long time for a burger. Also think that the burgers are quite pricey for what they are. Not a great first impression for us I'm afraid!

    Booked a table on line for 7:30 for 4 people. No table reserved. Had to wait. Table given was in the main noisy bar area in front of a big screen. Upholstery tattered and torn and step son cut his hand on the chair. NOT the experience we were hoping for for a birthday celebration.

    Hi there Richard, I am really sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with us, especially during a special occasion such as a birthday. I would like to investigate this matter further especially in regards to your step son cutting his hand on our furniture. Please reach out to me directly with more details at jen@theoldkingsarmsleeds.co.uk. Kind regards, Jen Assistant Manager

    Disappointed I booked a table over a week before (even before it was confirmed England would be in the quarter final) inside and yet I was out on a table where I couldn’t see a screen and was outside. Service from hostess wasn’t great and drinks took a long time to come (second round didn’t even show up) Disappointing for a place usually so good
