Had steak and it chips and it was ok, just ok, but on the borderline of ok and poor. Chips weren't very nice, steak didn't taste of much, it's pricey for what it is, which is sub Berni Inn. There's better places to eat. Having said that its really popular, the wait staff are friendly and the bbq sauce is,... More

Can't complain about Jaks, it does what it says on the tin. Starter of King Prawns in Chilli was nice, even if they were in the shell it's no real issue to peel - at least the heads were off! Main of Fillet with Pepper Sauce, cooked exactly to my requirements, as were every steak my colleagues requested. If you... More

I ate here twice, and had very good meals on both occasions. The food was very good, albeit a little pricey compared to where I normally eat at home, but I was on holiday so I wasn't too worried about that. The staff were very good, and served me quickly and cheerfully.

Had my fav cajun chicken sizzler, and loved it to the last bite! However, it was served with chips that were soggy and were easy to find out from their looks. Waiter did not realise that and after raising this issue, I was served with cris-cross fries that were little overcooked :) Without complaining, I loved the freshly cooked fries... More

We visited here on the last weekend of the football season and watched (or rather tried to watch!) 4 different games on 4 different TV's! Really lively and the clientale is varied. Excellent choice of beer. Set on 3 floors with a steak house restaurant upstairs which I am told is excellent. Really atmospheric bar.

It is a bank holiday weekend, so many restaurants are closed. By the time we stumbled across Jaks, we were tire and hungry. We ordered a brew in the pub while we waited for a table. If we had stopped with the beer, this review would be much different. On Sunday the menu in the restaurant is basically burgers or... More

We pride ourselves on our quality & cleanliness so I found this hard to believe so much so that I sat for a whole morning watching the CCTV coverage. Yes the chef did pick up the food dropped by a customer, he also DID change his glove but only the one that he picked the food up with. What I... More
