We arrived in keighley around 8pm looking for somewhere to eat. The staff at the Lord Rodney couldn’t have been more accommodating. The kitchen was about to shut but we were able to order a meal and it was good with very pleasant service

Ordered the steak and ale pie. The filling was in a very small bowl with a shop bought wafer thin pastry top! Pastry is easy to make and would have made such a difference if it had been homemade. Sat and waited 10 mins for...the waitress to return with the gravy to accompany my order. Not value for money. We will not be returning for food.More

Good food, good beer and friendly staff. Service is always quick and the atmosphere and beer garden are great.

Me and my girlfriend went for the bottomless brunch and were met by friendly staff. We sat at our table with our requested drinks and not even 5 minutes later the food was brought out to us. The food was cooked perfectly. The set menu...is spot on for the whole bottomless brunch idea. Also, it’s important to mention how attentive the staff were! Our drinks were not left empty for more than a minute. Will be returning 100%. After all for £30 per person it’s a steal!More

Went last Monday for a meal with some friends, the food was great, really quick service, their was a bottomless brunch in at the same time and that look amazing too. Will definitely be booking back in for one of those. The 2 lads on...the bar couldn’t do enough for us :)More

Thought I would take a visit to the Lord Rodney wish I hadn’t now. Food was mediocre with a very reduced menu,the website needs to be updated with this information,choice of only 2 starters. Staff need to create a better ambiance as they were so...loud,using unacceptable language! Group of chavvy kids arrive obviously all with false ID,as not one of them looked old enough to be drinking. This was supposedly one of keighley s better places to dine,it’s now like any other pub that find it acceptable to let under age drinking occur. Avoid at all costs and take a trip a few miles up the road to Haworth.More

This was always my favourite pub in Keighley and I was so happy to know it had reopened under new management recently. However, on visiting today I am sad to say I will never go back there again. The food was completely inedible being burnt...to a crisp with the “front of house guy” barely concealing his indifference to us as he removed our plates. Here’s a tip - do not serve completely inedible stodge in a huge quantity on the plate. I am convinced nobody will ever think that one is a winner!!More

We made a group booking to this venue with 7 adults and a 10year old child and we were all allowed to sit together, which I was thankful for but I found it strange given that COVID regulations state it should be 6 to a...table; we shouldn’t have been allowed to sit together. A young server had her face mask around her chin instead of on her face as she was stood at the side of my table. Chewing on gum with her mouth open. She made it clear that she didn’t want to be there and made it hard work to order drinks. I felt like I had to pester her and work hard to get her attention which made me feel really rude but because of COVID regulations I was not allowed to go to the bar myself. I ordered a double vodka and cola which arrived in a short tumbler glass. I asked if I could have this in a half pint of cola and the young server looked blankly at me. I said I would be happy to pay extra for the cola if that’s an issue. She went back to the bar and asked her manager (who also appeared to be the owner but that is an assumption), he aggressively dump poured my drink into a half pint glass to top it up with more cola. I could tell from his body language that he really didn’t want to give me more cola. I didn’t think my request was unreasonable and I always have that drink served like I requested in other venues without it being an issue. If I knew the drink was going to arrive in a small tumbler then I would’ve just ordered a single measure. I felt really uncomfortable after that and didn’t bother ordering any more drinks; we left soon after too. However, the server who brought our food out was lovely, bubbly and friendly. The food was really good too. I ordered the hunters chicken which was really delicious and loaded with cheese. Food portions were large which made me feel wasteful, but I suppose it’s better to have more than it is to not have enough. The venue itself is lovely with a nice modern decor and a small enclosed beer garden/smoking area. The toilets are located upstairs which is slightly inconvenient but there is a downstairs disabled toilet too. Attitudes of some of the staff is a shame as the pub and food are great, but the pub was busy so I guess others aren’t as put off by the attitude as I was. Maybe the staff were just having a bad day and these are tough times at the moment. I would give the pub another chance and review again if the experience is better.More

We went for a late lunch on 31 August. This was our second visit under the new management. Prior to that we haven’t been to the Rodney for at least three years. The social distancing and hygiene rules were in place. We enjoyed the ambience,...the great service especially from Abbie and the delicious food. We chose the spicy chicken burgers and chips. On our first visit we had the steak and ale pie and a pepperoni pizza. We enjoyed the food on both occasions. We intend to come here again.More

So tonight we thought we would take advantage of the eat out help out scheme. The tables were full, so we expected a little wait. Once the food finally arrived it was lovely, as always. But we felt so sorry for the girl serving and...taking orders. She was left to serve on her own whilst what seemed to be the manager, walked round the pub drinking. Meals kept being mistaken at the wrong tables and we had to ask for cutlery and condiments numerous times. Poor leadership skills, when you could clearly see she was struggling.More
