I visited the jailhouse with a group of friends for a birthday celebration a few Sundays back. The food was absolutely to die for the service was so attentive and friendly and great value for money! We all really had an excellent time, thank you!

The menu was quite extensive from soup and sandwiches right through to salads and burgers plus. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. Definatly a place we will go back... More

First visit, won't be the last....couldn't eat it all...give it a try. The only downside for us was feeling rushed due to them being so busy....our... More

Great looking establishment on the outside and a nice décor inside, but apart from that, my visit was pretty dull and flat.

It had all the charm of bird flu... More

Visited this restaurant on recommendation. We were very disappointed to be served frozen chips which were advertised as homemade chips. There were a few homemade ones thrown into give impression they were all homemade?? We smelt like we had been to a greasy spoon cafe for the rest of the day as the smell of cooking oil is overpowering. Food... More
