The restaurant is for families and the gaudy decoration is a little deceptive. The food is family with healthy, veggie overtones. The service is laid back but suits holiday makers. They were due to close on the day we visited but carried on which was appreciated.

We loved eating here! Delicious food, so laid back and a nice little space for the children to play with some toys too! Availability of food on the menu could be quite inconsistent but it didn't put us off at all. Would return again!

Great pub with a fantastic atmosphere, the staff are really friendly and it is reasonably priced. Captain Jacks offers food from their eatery situated at the back of the pub through the beer garden. The menu is standard pub food with a few added bonuses -burgers, pizza, burrito's, jacket potatoes which are well priced, good portions and very tasty. Wide... More

We waited 40 mins for a childrens burger that was tiny, and burnt, plus a ploughmans that was not a ploughmans at all. When I tried to complain I got bad attitude from the waitress.

We went here as a family with young children. The prices weren't too expensive, and the dishes are massive. It is perfect for kids who love pirates

Lovely place to eat. On holiday for the week and visited Captain Jacks twice, I think the word ' twice' sums it up. Lovely food very very nice staff, even sorted the five of us out with a meal just as they were about to stop serving and with a smile. Hope to visit again next year. Thanks to all... More
