Decent for price

Food was ok and waiting times pretty good. I took my kids and we ordered the two for £10 deal. Overall good value for money. Meal was let down by unhelpful staff. Would go back but hopefully have limited contact with staff.

Had a late lunch on a Saturday about 3pm. Used previously with no complaints. Same again, 3 adults and a 3 year old. Fish, scampi, hunter's chicken and a kid's sausages and chips. Staff were friendly, service was good. No complaints from us. Will use it again.

My friends and I come here every so often and have found the food to be very reasonable in price. It is simply pub food. The fish is excellent though, with a lovely crispy batter. The rump steak was small, very lean but on the tough side. For starters we usually go for a sharing platter and there is always... More

We booked the "Just " for the funeral tea when my father died and we could not have asked for better care and attention. It was impossible to guess how many people would attend, unlike a wedding, but when the estimated amount of food wasnt sufficent, more food was provided instantly, with no fuss. The food was presented well and... More

We specifically went to the just to watch the football. Having called to check that they would be showing the game we were massively disappointed that they only put the game on at half time (despite asking twice). The restaurant was full of children running around screaming and dragging toys from the play area into the bar. The food was... More

The Just is in a great location, plenty room plus ample parking. But I just don't understand the reason behind selling such poor quality food?! Don't get me wrong you don't pay much for it, practically giving it away! 2 meals for £10, some only £5 including a free drink! But it's frozen crap! They would have a great opportunity... More
