On Wednesday 16th. July 2014 my wife Linda and I took our daughter Gemma and her friend Odah for a Birthday treat. The weather was so good that we were able to sit outside. The service was very good and the choice of menu was excellent. The presentation was first class and there was no rush betweem courses. This was... More

I took my wife out for dinner last night and decided to go back to one of our favourite places. We arrived without a reservation and was offered a lovely table in a packed restaurant that only felt as though we were the only two there. The food was excellent, We both ordered fish and chips but with the fish,... More

We came to this restaurant to celebrate our daughter's graduation. It came recommended and did not disappoint. From start to finish we were very impressed by both the quality of the food and the professionalism of the waiting staff. We started the evening with drinks served in the lounge area, where our food orders were also taken, making for a... More

Yes..the food is of a very high standard, well-presented and perfectly cooked. Vegetable selection to accompany roast beef ( perfect colour), chicken breast and a lemon sole with shrimps was truly magnificent. The starter of a very thin tomato tart was also excellent. But would I go again? No. Service was ( bar one young gir) was perfunctory. Polite, yes...but... More

Very warm welcome from the staff with service quick and efficient. Large car park. Called in for lunch and enjoyed very good food both well cooked and well presented. Smoked salmon starter was delicious as was the confit of duck. Noticed they serve both Otter and Doom Bar and the beer was well kept. Tables in the dining area nicely... More

Have never been disappointed at the Jack! Whenever my wife and I have something to celebrate it always features amongst the top three places to eat. Consistently tasty,seasonal and local food on the menu, beautifully cooked and presented with attentive and polite staff, which always makes it a relaxed place to eat. More often than not we "do" lunch and... More

Wow this restaurant is brilliant! We were told this restaurant was posh and expensive. Well I would totally disagree. We were greeted with warmth and accommodate even though we hadn't booked, lucky us. Iced water on the table with complementary bread meant a lot. The fish special was exquisite and the fish and chips wonderful. Our waitress was knowledgeable about... More

Went for a meal last week with our daughter and friend. The restaurant looked very nice and welcoming but I'm afraid we were very disappointed with the menu. We chose the Pub Grub menu and found there was not a wide range of dishes. My daughter and I chose the fishcakes with salad. They were rather bland - the salad... More
