Good for large groups out for a meal

We were a large party so the set price to eat as much or as little as you wanted, was great. Was very busy at certain times and I have never been a fan of queuing for food. If you are a meat eater, you will probably love it, saw plates piled high with ribs, wings and chicken. As a... read more

We visit regularly and are never disappointed. Food is always of a high standard and plentiful. Staff are attentive. Puddings are delightful. Every time we visit, there's always some different desserts on offer which is pleasing. Food is always cooked to a high standard and some dishes are cooked freshly to order. Drinks are rather pricey, but that's to be... More

When in Bath with the children, a 3 and 10 year old, we always eat here. It's very child friendly and excellent service by the waiting staff at clearing plates etc. The food choices are excellent, a variety of Indian, Chinese, pizza, pasta, English bits. The chefs will even make a stir fry up in front of you!! Then there's... More

What a disappointing experience. We visited for a treat for my eldest daughter. We were seated at a table with food that had been dropped under it and a dirty serviette. We were not immediately asked for our drinks order and waited some time before I had to catch the eye of another waitress. Another waitress brought the drinks but... More

I visited jimmy's with mum and sister late afternoon on a Saturday. I would say the place was disorganised at best. When we arrived we were asked to have a seat while we waited for a table. There weren't many other diners in there and it seemed to take some time for the staff to decide who was going to... More

Dear Guest We are very sorry for the experience you had. Please note that we follow the highest standards of food hygiene and raw food is kept separate from cooked food at all times.

Food is good! Can't fault the freshly prepared food cooked to your taste. The naan breads and ice-cream is probably my favourite part. Cocktails are also not bad either! Some of the chefs are very friendly but the waiters are appalling as a whole. A couple are very sweet but some of the men are so rude and make you... More
