There were 14 of us dining at the new revamped Jakes on a Fiday night. The restaurant was full and the new decor and bar area looks great. Service was good and our young waitresses were on top form. Glad to see their famous duck was still on offer as well as the flat breads and roast pork belly which were all delicious. Our meals all arrived within minutes ofeachther and the drinks were flowing. Well done. Only at dessert time our waiters did not ask all of us for our orders andvoddings were arriving and being ordered which should not happen
Also it would be nice if the menu changed. After all these years it is still the same and becomes a bit boring and predictable. Perhaps stop saying the duck is a special, put it on the menu and get creative with actual specials.
Also the music from bar area got louder and louder as night progressed which was a bit annoying as we could not hear each other too well. Otherwise all was good, as usual, but please get relative with the menu
