An amazing culinary experience

4 of us booked for a birthday meal and had the 5 course tasting menu along with the flight of wines. Every dish was superbly cooked and presented, as well as tasting divine (helped by the well-matched wines). The waiting staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We've debated for ages on what the... read more

This was my first Michelin star dining experience. We got a groupon deal effectively making the 7 course taster menu half price. Atmosphere good, cosy restaurant, full on a Sunday lunchtime, service was great. Food was wonderful, I especially enjoyed the ham and pea soup, I don't know how they can make something so normal taste so amazing. We wouldn't... More

My wife & I booked for a birthday meal. We had the 7 course taster meal with wine. Individual courses were "ok" but frankly expected more than "ok" at this price and for a Michelin star chef. Portion sizes were small enough for my wife to jokingly ask "fancy a kebab?" as we left. Won't be going back and would... More

Before our visit I was a little worried by some of the reviews that were written especially about the service. We had the 9 course tasting menu with the wine flight. The staff were very young but they more than made up for their inexperience with their really happy, friendly, courteous manner. Nothing was too much trouble and they ensured... More

Went as a couple on the spur of the moment and opted for two 2 course lunches for £32.50 each. My slow cooked 'truffling' suckling pig was wonderful as was my main course of duck with parsnip, salted orange puree and sea beat. The food was beautifully presented and more filling and rich than I expected. We both enjoyed our... More

We had a coupon for the 7 course taster menu, the food is good but compared to other 1 & 2 michellin star restaurants we have been to there was no one dish that we will remember for a long time, lovely well presented and tasty food but not outstanding. The service is also hit and miss, the two in... More

We had been wanting to try JSW for some time, and managed to book a table for 2 for our visit to the area over Easter 2015. We chose the 5-course tasting menu with the accompanying "wine flight". All the courses were very tasty and well-presented, though my wife didn't enjoy the scallops as much as the rest. I was... More

7 course lunch was a wonderful treat. The attention to detail sets this apart from most other local restaurants. Food was beautifully presented and the staff exemplary. Looking forward to our next visit.

I booked this restaurant for my boyfriends birthday. The booking was smooth and accurate. The food is OK for a Michelin star restaurant. This is not the first Michelin star dining we have experienced, so compared to the others i would not rate this highly. The service are all young teenagers who have memorized the menu and wine list. We... More

I booked a Groupon voucher for 4 people for this restaurant back in January of this year but due to work and travel commitments, I was unable to confirm a suitable date until towards the end of the Voucher period. I called JSW and spoke to Jake who was extremely kind and helpful and although outside of the fixed 'valid... More
