The service was excellent. Our waiter couldn't do enough for us, but the service did not make up for the fact that the steak was tough. Such a pity, as everything else was fine.

Formerly 2 Italian restaurants, a tea shop and a wine bar, The Roundhay Fox combines the best of its heritage in a British pub which serves excellent traditional pub cuisine. Featuring a classic Yorkshire stone design inside and out, you can enjoy the food by the crackling log-fire, or in the al fresco garden for outdoor dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Roundhay Fox menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Roundhay Fox ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In the small Leeds surburb of Roundhay, the city centre is just 10 minutes’ drive away.

    Apart from our lead waitress service seemed uncoordinated with 1 meal in every course arriving several minutes after the rest. The staff seemed harassed and did not know which food was for what table. Food was average except for the puddings which where bloody massive by comparison to starters and mains.
    Next time I'm just ordering a pudding.
    In their defence they may have been struggling with the special Mother's Day menu but from what I saw on other tables it wasn't just us that had issues.

    Everythiing was good except for the service. Our waitress aas offhand with us throughout the meal. She totally forgot to bring one of our parties drink. After 20 mins we asked and it came, no apology. She spoke so quickly when giving the choices of steak sauces it came out as garbled, we asked her to reoeat the choices she looked anoyed and garbled out the chioces again, so we didn't bother. We had to catch her attention to ask her to order both our main and sweet courses. The puddings took about 25 minutes to come the restaurant was nearly empty by then. She never smiled once and didn't ask us if our meals were ok or aplogise for forgetting to bring the drink or the time it took for us to recieve the puddings. I feel awful writing this as I usually enjoy giving praise. But you have asked for feedback and this reflects our experience. All 4 of us were of the same opinion.

    The general layout of the pub seems to have improved since our last visit, although one of the taps in the gents was not working. The waiting staff and other staff were excellent, our waiter was very attentive. My meal was delicious, although the soups we had were not the same as requested, very tasty though and my mother sent back her fish and chips as was undercooked. A new meal was provided quickly and without fuss. We had a good evening generally though.

    Service was quick and friendly. However meat was tough and carrots undercooked. Cauliflower cheese did not taste of cheese. On the menu it said a jug of gravy but it came already poured. A bit disappointed as we have been several times and meals were good. This is the first time coming for Sunday lunch and sadly will be the last. The ratings are based on Sunday lunch.

    Disappointing - we found the booking on line quick and easy and appreciated the text. That was the good news! I had the roast beef which as it was inedible was sent back (it had also come with almost burnt parsnips and a v small amount of overcooked veg.) It was replaced quickly with v nice turkey which was 200% improvement. Childs saus and chips - 5 chips!!! other meals not good and eaton mess was mess!! very little of it for the price indeed on a round of red sponge?? Strange. We have generally been v dissapointed with Vintage Inns recently. We went to a local one at the Soverign recently and the steak was awful. Last year we went for Boxing Day meal and was lovely. Was going to book again this yr but def wont on these experiences - sorry. ps waiting staff were excellent shame they have to serve such poor food. Also drinks served in wrong glasses no ice etc. Bill was incorrect also.
