I was greeted by a friendly lady who took me to the table and got a highchair for my youngest daughter then went immediately to get drinks for us. There was no childrens menu but it was ok as my two shared a toastie with chips and... read more

Once the broom blocking the bar had been moved I was able to attempt to order my coffees and cake (4-00 p.m. (ish), more than a bit of confusion about what cake I wanted (afternoon "Special" said it was Coffee and walnut) and won't even go into being asked to pay for 3 coffees before I had even ordered ANYTHING!...

We were visiting friends and popped into the jailhouse for a drink after a tour of nuneaton. Very slow service at the bar. Drinks were 5.35 for a diet coke and pint of kronenburg. Sat outside on a table.. Nice in the sun. Hectic with the amount of people. Again a wait at the bar for 2nd drinks. Watreses kept... More

On Thu 30/07/2015 I and my partner had the misfortune of visiting The Jail house for a bite to eat in the afternoon. I must say I will never return again to eat in the place again. Two plates of sandwiches came to £11.50, for that we got two slices of stale brown bread and about 10 chips with a... More

From the day I went in to pay the deposit for our wedding reception everything went pear shaped. Firstly they double booked us, I had to keep prompting them to answer e-mail or telephone communication, one of the lady staff members made my 3 year old son cry after snatching a balloon from him, most of our guests didn't get...

We were so looking forward to coming here. The coffee was lovely, my friend had tea. The pot however stuck to the table as poorly maintained and the paint was like glue.
