We visit Calico Jack's as a treat for the family as the children love the Pirate themed décor. Sticky finger Wednesday's are great value. The menu is a mix of Tex mex, Burgers, Pizza and Salads or Sandwiches. We have sampled all of the listed foods and they have all been very nice and good value for money. The children... More

A wide choice on the menu with chicken, ribs steak burgers etc I had the steak and ribs combo which was superb cooked to perfection melt in the... More

Visited on Monday and left feeling quite indifferent. Firstly, I liked the decor and the music played, it's definitely somewhere I would come back to for drinks. The staff were very friendly and attentive where necessary. food wise I wasn't overly impressed. The nachos sharer with chilli for £12 was massively overpriced considering the small amount of nachos and even... More

Love the restaurant and the food but it is a bit pricey for what amounts to a bistro. It does get full as well, and does large parties so be aware that it can be busy and noisy.

Visited with my boyfriend, was nice weather and we sat outside, quick service and massive portions would recommend the captain jack burger, Like the pirate theme it's a bit different and creates a fun atmosphere, would visit again

The food was rather bland. The portion size was huge, quality over quantity for me I'm affraid. The pirate theme seems a bit strange as it didnt really tell me much about the type of cuisine to expect. The menu seemed to center around pizza or variations of pizza. There is a few other dishes burgers, chicken, salad and such... More

This is a very, busy restaurant which appears to have a pleasant atmosphere. However the level of noise is very unpleasant. The emphasis is on fast food which appears to be attractive in terms of decor and 'American" in experience.Unnfortunately it does not live up to expectations. The food was high in salt and fat content. Very few Healthy options.

I first called in with my family in April 2015 when we were looking into moving into the area. We were quite underwhelmed by the whole experience. Since moving to the area late last year we decided to call in again on our way back from Lightwater Valley. Unfortunately it doesn't seemed to have changed. Ok menu with quite a... More
