“It just gets better...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Just been back to Plymouth after a two month gap and got the usual wonderfully warm welcome at Jolly Jacks. It's a regular watering hole for us when in Plymouth and lunches and breakfasts are both good value and high quality. We also had dinner there. Very yummy scotch egg shared as a starter and truly amazing Devon ruby red steak with cafe de Paris butter, wonderful big chips that were crumbly and crunchy outside and light and fluffy on the inside, delicious onion rings and flat mushrooms and tomatoes that were slow roasted and packed full of flavour. My only complaint is that I was too full for pudding but managed to find room for an luscious Avriletto cocktail & my other half - the birthday boy had a cheese board that was out of this world - no sign of dull old crackers on this plate - lovely selection of cheeses, damson jelly and premium biscuits - if anyone does a better cheese board I'd be very suprised. On and it had a birthday candle as well. Service is always great here but what I really love is that whether you're just having a coffee or pushing the boat out for a big occasion you always get the same great welcome & service from the utterly charming people at JJ's,

“A wonderful lazy afternoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We met our friends here for a late sunday afternoon lunch , we have never dined here before
what a fantastic restaurant, the decor suiting the enviroment on the marina, with a wonderful wood burner in the middle of the room .
The staff effortlessley efficient but full of personality and fun but the best part is the food!
We started with a meze of starters ,the famous scotch eggs ,cambembert cheese and a selection of antipasta. All outstanding and served with warm bread made on the premises! The choice of mains is extensive from burgers (devon ruby red)!to sunday roasts , various fish dishes and a wonderful duck with a parsnip tarte tartin!
The food is seriously good, the atmosphere terrific, service outstanding.!
Already booking our next visit !!

“Birthday Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Fantastic service from the original booking to leaving. Great food, attentive staff, but not intrusive whilst we were eating.We had to add an extra as we were let down by a baby sitter at the last minute, again there was no problem.
Thanks for a making my wife's 50th a night we will remember.
