Regrettably JKS has now closed, supposedly for refurbishment but it had been winding down for some time and the kitchen closed several months ago when the chef left and was not replaced. On our last visit for a drink on a Saturday evening in August there was just one real ale on offer and below standard wines. Such a shame... More

Although the meals were well presented and tasty, the size of the portions were small. Both my husband & I ordered a 2 course dinner and we were still hungry at the end of our meal. The main courses are between £8.50 & £15 and starters & sweets are around £5. We have been to places where we could only... More

Visited jks as we regularly do. The bar seems to have been in decline recently and our most recent visit was so dreadful it has actually prompted us to write this post. We ordered a cocktail, it was made poorly with little consideration for the quality of the drink and presented bluntly to us. We we questioned how the drink... More

Arrived at 1930 and ordered our drinks. There were four of us, one beer, one cider, one pimms and a glass of Pinot Grigio. We were told that there was no white wine?! Surprised, we changed our order to a glass of Prosecco; which they didn't have. The two for one cocktails were then noticed and two piña coladas were... More

Went in tonight as got a tastecard. The 2 for 1 cocktails were a bonus. Place had a buzzing vibes and friendly atmosphere. There were a couple of things off the menu which is a good thing cos it shows the food is fresh! My wife had the Greek salad and chilli burger both were lovely I had the allay... More

We have been regular attendees of JKS Winebar on Friday and Saturday Nights now for some time for their live music evenings, and i must say they very rarely disappoint.a new stage and layout suggests more a live music venue than the name suggests and this was proven yesterday by their 'Live-Leigh' event. a whole day of live music ran...

The fantastic value for money menu....the rates and charges these poor businesses have to injure is no wonder that there purse strings have to be held so tight.....you can see and feel they are trying everything to find a haven for the more mature clientele.....we don't...

Having a Tastecard it is good to find a place that honours this on a Saturday night, and for four people. We had an excellent meal, with very well cooked food (only paid 50% due to Tastecard!). The cocktails were 2 for 1, so we took full advantage of that too. The only downside was the music played over the... More

Over priced drinks. Sells itself as a wine bar - but really it's not a great location so the wines are not exclusive or particularly good. The real ales are served from faux barrels at the back of the bar and are from a local brewery - Ringwood. However, there are several local breweries that would enjoy the support that... More

Dont get out much these days since the kids came along, so needed to make the most of our night out. Had a great night with a couple of friends who were going on a cruise the next day. Food was out of this world, service with a smile and good music. I would definately recommend JKs for a good... More
