Excellent food, although it took it time to arrive to the table... The waiting worth it. Ordered the lamb rump and the serrated knife was almost a joke. Quite tender, almost to the point of being able to deal with it just with the fork.

great food but potatoes and vegetables are extra, but you do get a lot and the complete meal is filling and tasty

On short notice from our tour guide, Jacks provided an upstairs room and great dinners off the menu for 20 people. Service was superb and hilariously friendly. After that great experience, we returned the next evening to test it again. We are so glad we... More

Very pleasant dining experience, a good number of servers who were continually ensuring that our needs were meet. Limited selection of wine, but what we had was quite good. The meals were very very good, having the twice roasted lamb and cannelloni, which we enjoyed.

We were seated quickly and ordered our drinks, which took ages to arrive! We were asked for our food order before they'd even arrived. Once they did arrive,... More
