We've eaten here many times in the past when it was a pub but looking at the pictures with the dressed tables, white table cloths wine glasses etc we thought it had turned into some sort of restaurant but it's still a pub. We visited...More

Super meal, beautifully presented, very hot - and everyone of the 45 of us in the group said what a wonderful meal it was. Just what an organiser needs to hear. Couldn't have been more helpful, welcoming and professional - and what food! Thank you.

I am thinking of bringing a very special lady to lunch sometime during the third week in April. I have never met the lady in person before, but we have a close relationship on the Internet. She is in her 50's and I am somewhat older. She is a very successful lady, a university lecturer and expert on ancient religions & languages. So you can imagine I would like to make a good impression. So, my questions, do I need to book in advance ? Could you arrange for flowers to be delivered to the table . This is very important. Thank you.

The Wortley Arms was originally built as a coach house in 1753 at a cost of 188 pounds and 66 shillings! After an extensive renovation period we reopened our doors in November 2006.You will find we have retained many of the features that have given this historical building its renowned character including its revolving doors and the solid oak beams. Customers can enjoy themselves in our warm welcoming environment in front of our wood fire, whilst enjoying a locally brewed ale or some excellent fresh food like our famous Wortley Pie.The Montagu Rooms occupy the upper floor. Here we can accommodate private functions for all purposes. You can hire part or the whole of the top floor for exclusive private dining, for seated parties of up to 50 or buffet style catering for larger gatherings. Alternatively you can reserve the entire venue including the facilities of the Wortley Arms.Food for both the Wortley Arms and the Montagu Rooms is prepared under the direction of Master Chef of Great Britain Andy Gabbitas. Andy uses recipes that he has collected in the course of his experience as private chef to well known celebrities and on his world travels to produce a cuisine at its most pure, simple and seasonal.
