“Good food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have eaten here a couple of times, enjoyed the food very much, friendly efficient service (although both times organised events) and tasty, well presented food. Very pleasant environment, not cheap but worth it!

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

The food I had at Jardine's was very good, but hardly earth-shattering. I had some nice whitebait, but there were not that many of the blighters, then a nice bit of hake. It's worth a go, and I think they do a reasonable set menu.

I went to a meet the author event. It was a really different and interesting evening. Great food, a beautiful environment and a nice mix of people. I will be going to more of these events.

“Retirement dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

A retirement dinner on a Wednesday evening at 7.30 pm. A wonderful evening - it was marvellous that we had exclusive use of the restaurant, and the meal was really excellent. Friendly and efficient organisation in the lead-up to the event. Great food and friendly service on the evening. Lovely decor and the artwork was a point of discussion. Very many thanks.
