I was kindly given a travelzoo voucher for the seven course taster menu at JSW and was looking forward to experiencing the "Michellin Experience" On arrival we were warmly greeted by the young front of house, coats were taken, and we were shown to our table..... so far all good. however, disappointingly there was absolutely no atmosphere in the restaurant...

Booked this restaurant and the Junior Suite as a special for my partners birthday. Have to say from booking through to leaving the following day, it was amazing. I received a call during the morning to remind me of our booking, they asked if all was OK and they were looking forward to seeing us later. On arrival they knew... More

We bought an online deal and went on Saturday. The ambiance is very appealing, Not formal and stuffy but welcoming and warm. The front of house staff are young, but very knowledgeable and trained to a high standard. The food and wine was excellent. The restaurant was busy and the courses were delightfully presented and beautifully prepared. The artwork on... More

Delicious, sublime. I even closed my eyes when I had a chef special: the spaghetti bolognese. (I've never had a spag bol like this before.) Likewise with the pud: cheesecake with rhubarb and ginger. With my eyes closed I could savour the flavours a little more intensely, before the food disappeared down my throat. A real treat to eat in... More

On a terrible rain swept night this restaurant was full. This shows how people love Jake Watkins and his food. The balance was perfect and the value of the set meal is better than most. A young but professional staff are in abundance and there is no waiting for anything. What ever you order is just as good as the... More

Having purchased a voucher on TravelZoo we made our way to JSW for a lunchtime 7 Course menu. A completely faultless and enjoyable experience overall. Every single dish was executed to perfection, even the root vegetable soup (that would not usually to my own personal taste) was still a very well produced and a pleasure to eat. The staff were...

We had the five course tasting menu, which was delicious. We also thought it was good value, as only a little more than the three course lunch price. Two of our party had the wine flight with it and enjoyed all their wine pairings too. The lamb 'spag bol' dish near the end was fabulous. The bread was some of... More

I've had JSW in my sights for ages as a spot for a special treat, and this week I finally went with my partner. Although the food was generally good, overall the experience left me feeling "pleasant enough, but wouldn't bother going back". With the exception of the head waitress, the staff were young, inexperienced and frankly not up to... More

We went here for Lunch last Saturday with some friends to celebrate a Birthday, they had just moved to the area and were looking forward to experiencing this restaurant. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was it was far to hot, not great for a relaxing lunch or great for the staff working, luckily we were in a... More

We approached lunch at JSW with some trepidation after reading some negative reviews on here. First impressions weren't great - we weren't greeted and were literally just stared at by the first waitress we encountered until I prompted her to take us to our table. She then asked us what drinks we wanted before we'd even sat down, let alone... More
