Lovely food although menu can be quite limited. Service was brilliant and staff very friendly. Only slight criticism is that one of our party had a superfood salad and it was laced with coriander which she hates! Ruined her enjoyment. It may be helpful if this was listed as an ingredient in the salad given its distinctive flavour.

Been here a few times and each time the food is so good. I booked this for date night and after reading the mixed reviews i was a little unsure on what to expect. Well we were very happy. Service was good, food was great and not bad price. Will keep coming back... Would definitely recommend.

Food is far too salty - Otherwise it's well presented and tasty, but why must everything be so salty - I'll drinkl anyway honestly

We went there yesterday for lunch. When we turned up there was no host at the door & had to wait 15mins before one showed up for him to ignore us & show people behind us a table. The restaurant wasn't even half full but we had really long waits for food & drinks. The food it self was under... More

Very nice restaurant/bar. Really friendly and efficient staff. Quick service and deliciously cooked food and surprisingly not expensive considering the restaurants name. It was clean and fresh looking and has a nice seating area outside in warm days. Will definitely visit again

Corporate restaurants proliferate here - Jamie's is a cut above - too bad they are not right on the water! Great service and enjoyed sitting outside on a warm evening.

I just want to warn everyone out there, about the terrible service and food that me and my husband have received at this restaurant. Our main meals arrived 40 minutes late, and our puddings were forgotten about, and only arrived an additional 30 minutes after we complained. As well as this, the food was flavourless and dull, and quite frankly,... More

The past was nice but nothing to go home raving about. The staff is friendly and good service. Friendly to kids. As I said before, I expected more from a famous chef.

Visited with children and friends for dinner. The food was all really nice and the kids meals were presented in an exciting way. I had the super food salad and it was really tasty and very filling. Spinach and ricotta pancakes yummy too. The only disappointment was the polenta chips, they were very bland. The after dinner coffees/cocktails were lovely... More

Beautiful rustic dishes are created using carefully sourced, higher-welfare ingredients for the best flavour, but still at great value.
