The Jester is under new management and the food is FABULOUS! The sirloin steak is the best I have ever eaten in the UK and I will be returning ASAP. The fish and chips are excellent too. Service is efficient and friendly. Highly recommended - visit as soon as you can!

Forgot to write this one up until now. We stayed here as it was on the "recommended" by a local wedding venue. Well don't believe all you read. Cold room, hard uncomfortable bed, dirty smelly and tiny bathroom. We had 2 rooms at £75 each, much better to be had elsewhere, anywhere in fact! Will never stay here again and... More

The sooner the better in my opinion. Had to stay at this horrible little hotel as a college lives near by and there are no other hotels to choose. Staff are quite friendly but they treat it like their own party pad, getting drunk and blasting music out loudly until 1am on a Tuesday night. Also right next to a... More

We stayed at The Jester in order to attend a family wedding. The website certainly presnets the room and standards in a better light. The rooms are shabby and in serious need of decoration and re Vamping. The bathroom has damp on the walls and the shower cutrain is covered in mould. The shower head squirts in 5 directions and...

Came to the jester for Mother's day lunch, the service was excellent but the food was poor. Had carvery and the beef had no taste, the roast potatoes were hard and the vegetables were stone cold. Been here a few times before and food was good but definitely not this time and it rather spoilt my day.

My first night the bar staff and service was very friendly and helpful - the skipping CD was very annoying though but it did bring a smile to my face hearing one member of staff explain that she normally places the cds in the dishwasher! My second night I couldn't help but feel that roles had been reversed, the gentleman... More

Met a friend for lunch, and whilst the decor of the pub/restaurant needs a little TLC, this was soon forgotten by the delicious, real home cooked food. I chose the steak and ale pie, which was very generously packed with tender chunks of steak (accompanied by 3 veg & huge chunky golden chips, for under a tenner!), whilst my friend... More
