Didnt kick up a fuss though as didnt want to cause a scene. The Vegetables were boiled to almost a minute of their lifes and were... More

Have eaten here a couple of times now and on both occasions the service was very good. Staff are very polite and welcoming and food is always served quickly. The log fire burning creates a warm, cosy atmosphere and the staff made a fuss of my 3 year old son which was appreciated. The food is basic but certainly fair... More

Visited on a Friday lunch time for a family lunch . Sadly we were the only customers so not actually humming with atmosphere . Tried the Fish and Chip meal deal after a bit of a wait arrived . Chips excellent fish so so . Included was bread and butter . Now this is my gripe and although seems petty... More

Had lunch here today - we both had the grilled salmon fillet which was very tasty (but ever-so slightly underdone) & the vegetables were very nice (the carrots were perfectly cooked and some of the best tasting that I've enjoyed for a long time, the broccoli was just a tad overcooked for me but still good, and there was a...

The jester hotel is tired and out dated. The location is quite apart from the train that goes passed and is very loud! The room was spacious but again needing tlc! The food was nice and fairly priced. The atmosphere was dead! In all if there was an injection of life and money. Wouldn't go back!

Re-visited the Jester for a meal last week, it has been about 6 months since our last visit when the food was not good but as it is fairly local decided to try it again. Big mistake!!!! The stuffed chicken dinner was awful, sent back straight away as the vegetables was cold (same as last time) and the chips (supposedly... More

This establishment was recommended by another hotelier who had overbooked and suggested I stay here instead. I stay in hotels regularly on business so am able to judge what is adequate and what is not. On entering the hotel through the front it does not make a good impression. It is quite untidy, drab and tired. My room (room 1)... More

Had a pleasant 2 niight stay whilst visiting Royston Cambridge, for a family wedding. Friendly welcoming staff, nice rooms and good breakfasts, we had a meal also on the 1st night which was good... Would use the Jesters again if we are visiting the area again.
