Brilliant Sunday roast, excellent wine list We arrived quite late and there was still the full menu available, we did think they may have started to run out of roasts

Met friends for lunch, are in garden area. Nice settings interesting interior decorations, nice ale selection. Waitress quick to take orders however service after was a bit sporadic. No offer of condiments with roasts, drinks left on bar, had to ask twice for water. Roasts were nicely cooked, spuds a bit hard on outside but all happy enough with choices.

We've been Black Jugging for over 30 years, and seen staff, wines,beers come and go, while high standards remained steadfast, - alas it is now time to move on. It's not the staff - excellent and professional, wines - extensive and generally reliable, beers - always hitting the spot, no, it's the food. The menu looks and sounds good but... More

The restaurant staff were very good by way of making sure we each got the meal we had pre-ordered. I had the pan fried hake...... More

But, it was so busy in the bar & conservatory restaurant area that it wasn't really the best place for a friends... More

We were a party of nine and although the restaurant was not busy it seemed to be a bit much for the staff. Food was only average. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday evening.
