Wortley Arms Public House

The Wortley Arms was originally built as a coach house in 1753 and opened again in November 2006 after an extensive renovation. On the ground floor is the pub, where visitors will find locally brewed ales, fresh food and a log fire. Upstairs is Montagu's restaurant, named after Lady Mary Montagu, where diners can enjoy food inspired by influences from various regions across Europe.

2 Reviews of Wortley Arms:

  • Steve Moxon

    Selling what should be low-priced local beer (Bradfield Blonde) for £3.20 a pint, yet not noticing that it's noticeably "off" is not the way to entice customers to have a meal - especially when nobody had thought to put the heating on, a band sound-check in effect put the actual restaurant room out of bounds, and the flimsy single-sheet menu indicated that it was substantially over a tenner for so little as a burger.

    For the manageress, or whoever she was, to respond deeply patronisingly and sarcastically when I mentioned that it was a poor pint - when I had courteously avoided boldly stating that it was "off" (or contaminated with cleaning fluid?) - rather took the biscuit.

    Strongly recommended by a couple of friends, I took my father, son and daughter for lunch. Apart from the waitress, who was lovely, and very helpful, we were all completely disappointed.

    We wanted steak, which for some reason wasn't on the menu and so chose gammon, which was quite dry and served with the drab and not (or so it seemed, fresh vegetables, apart from the chips). It was very expensive for what it was and nobody enjoyed it.

    The next week I cooked the same meal for the family, which was far tastier, the gammon succulent and enjoyed far more by everyone. Certainly wouldn't go there again.
