“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Popped in pre-Christmas on the basis of previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. Good service and interesting, fresh food. A limited menu but the food had some great flavours and was extremely tasty. Reasonably priced and testimony to the reputation of the place it was rammed at lunchtime (12 noon). Would definitely go back

“poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Could not fault the waitress,but the food was bland and unimpressive.My partner had the soup to start(dishwater) i had the ham hock the only good out of it was the cranberry chutney.Presented well but what i am saying is that style over substance comes to mind.

“Great burger! Forget the beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Very friendly staff and great burger place. The places gets filled very quickly so have a reservation or be early.
Unfortunately no beer on tap, only bottle and only the standard brands :(

“What a Great Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We came across Jack Spratt whilst visiting the xmas market, and so pleased we did! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great food, it was buzzing!! The place was full and we really enjoyed our lunch time treat. I bet its great with a live band on. Nice to find somewhere different to all the other eating places. I even left a tip!! and ask my friends I don't tip easily. Thanks again Colin and Julie
