On arrival the outer appearance is pleasant - typical country pub. However, on entering, the interior decor is drab, dreary and somewhat old fashioned (not in a good way). Bar staff were unwelcoming and frosty putting even more of a downer on the place. Waiting staff were marginally better. The food left a lot to be desired. The meat was... More

I went to a wedding at the Jester in August and had a wonderful time. We stayed there two nights and found the rooms to be comfortable, clean and very quiet. Great location too - right next to the railways station, with very pretty gardens and good beer on tap. Nice breakfast and evening meals too! The staff were really... More

Maggie and staff worked tirelessly all day to make everything run smoothly without being intrusive. I also had the chicken which had a delicious cheese sauce and was cooked perfectly. Yes, a... More

Didn't stay on site, merely visited for a wedding. Staff very accommodating to our 2 young children. Wedding ceremony held within a few feet of a smelly toilet. Wedding meal, held in room that needs total modernisation, bare plaster on the ceiling. The food was bland, and pink chicken served. We didn't make a complaint, as not wanting to make... More

We had a pleasant stay with rooms of a good size. This isn't a glamorous place to stay but you wouldn't expect it for the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful with breakfast offering a wide choice of freshly cooked items. It was very good to have a front door key allowing open access. The garden was well... More

We were driving past last night late on and looking for somewhere to eat off the a505 we saw the saw for the jester so decided to pull off and give it a try. We walked in and asked as it was nine if they were still serving food. The bar man said yes as the kitchen closes at nine... More
