Staff were pleasant enough and the food was nice however for the price I paid (around £15 for a main course and £4 for onion rings, as i correctly guessed the main would not be enough) I expected more. Not bad but not so noticeably better to be worth the premium prices.

Attended today 30/07/15 with my wife. Booked for 7pm, had a window table near the bar which was away from the other diners which was great. I had a giant chimichanga which was a pulled beef thing in a deep fried tortilla. It was the size of a child's head and truly excellent. My wife had some very tasty chicken... More

We celebrated our son's 18th birthday at Jingles. We all had a wonderful time. The food was tasty & portions massive, service excellent & cocktails fabulous! Upon arrival we were seated & served complimentary tortilla chips and salsa, which we ate whilst looking at the menu. It took a while to decide what to choose as everything sounded so good.... More

We had no reservation but they happily accommodated us. Had the nachos to start, based on 2 people sharing. Followed by the Mexican Chicken Kebab, and Beef Enchiladas. All very tasty and piping hot too. The portion sizes were enormous..... And trust me my husband can eat!! The girls were all very friendly, polite and attentive. Service was super fast,... More

We went to Jingles having visited 10 years previously and enjoyed it. This visit was a disappointment. The food was ok - generous portions but a little bland. Service was slow but again ok. The most annoying aspect was the constant slamming of the door - surely a small job to get it fixed.

The staff are all very friendly, the food is fantastic, with huge portions. There is a wide selection on the menu & one of my party is vegetarian & we have never seen such a wide variety of veggie dishes in a restaurant before. Best place I have been to in ages.
