Visited the restaurant as a couple early on a Saturday night. All staff were welcoming and our waitress particularly helpful and friendly. Unfortunately one of the main courses was only lukewarm. The waitress rectified matters immediately by taking away this dish and the other (so that we could eat at the same time). The replacement dishes were fine and appeared... More

Jamie's managed to squeeze us in which was perfect for us. Staff were excellent and whizzed us in and out as we needed to be out within an hour. Food was delicious!

Early Saturday evening meal before a show and the place really filled quickly after 6pm so book ahead. The food, main and dessert, were great and the service friendly and efficient. The only down side was the background noise in the upstairs restaurant, this may be due to the ceiling construction but conversations and music seemed to amplified.

Service didn't start well with a slight delay in getting our tabke but after that it get better and better. I will look forward to... More

My most recent visit was for a christmas night out and was very disappointed. The service was ok. the food was poor. Most of our dishes were cold, the side dishes were very average and all in all we decided we would not go back. I have to say after a few months previously when my son was served raw... More
