Outstanding food, service and ambience. One of the best Sunday lunches in Leeds.

Nice atmosphere and the drinks and bar area were great. However, my burger, although tasty, was served very rare (uncooked and cold right in the middle) without being asked how I wanted it cooking, and my other half's steak (which was meant to be medium rare) was also purple in the middle and was at the very least rare as opposed to medium rare. The table next to us sent something back for being undercooked as well.

We took full advantage of the Saturday lunch menu, the food was lovely, great value for money, we also loved the unlimited Prosecco offer. There were 10 of us in our party, couldn’t fault the service, friendly staff who looked after us very well. Great decor, busy, good atmosphere. We will definitely come back as closer to the shops and station than we originally thought

We had to constantly get the waiters attention to place an order or get the bill - never checked on either.

For a lunch service we would expect a certain level of quickness and attention to the service

Waiters all polite nonetheless

The food was excellent, very tasty and well prepared. Staff were very friendly and service good. The only downside was the amount of noise. It was a busy Friday night, but the background noise was so loud it was difficult to here each other at the table.

The only criticism is that the food took a long time from the pass to the table so it was warm to hot rather than hot.
Great service, friendly interested staff with great food n drink. Sitting in booth meant we were away from the noise and could talk with comfort and in private

Fantastic food, service & atmosphere. We booked The Whitehall for a special anniversary meal and they didn't disappoint. My stake was one of the best I've had for a long time and was cooked perfect, all the staff were attentive and polite but not over bearing and the decor is classy.
I'd definitely recommend and we will definitely be back!!

The Sunday roast was easily the best I've had in Leeds - we really enjoyed it and the staff were accommodating to us switching out the veg etc. We were a little disappointed that the menu wasn't the same as on the website and if it had been, we would have had dessert. The food was absolutely delicious though, will definitely be back!
