Visited yesterday with former colleagues. I had been once before but this time the food was better. You really couldn't fault the food. The staff were pleasant but a trifle disorganised although they were all very helpful and I accept it's not easy with a...More

We have been several times now to the WW in Guiseley ~ it is so good, that's why we keep returning! Excellent service, excellent atmosphere, beautiful crystal chandeliers, fine piano player and beautiful, generous Fish & Chips! Love it!!

Had lunch here today. It is always a consistently high quality meal, at which ever location you choose. They have kept the chandeliers from the Harry Ramsden era, which is nice and unusual for a fish and chip restaurant. We loved it and the nostalgia.
