On our last night in Painswick, we thought we would try JK's, especially as the vegetarian menu posted outside the resataurant looked pretty enticing.

Big mistake. The service was indifferent. The food was, frankly, pretty terrible. I ordered the baked figs with blue cheese - the figs were unripe and consequently, tasteless.

The mushroom and spinach crepe was unavailable so I opted for the aubergine and coconut korma. The aubergine was not properly cooked. The rice was not properly cooked. The poppadum was flobbily. The korma sauce was tasteless.

My husband chose much more wisely. His pate was fine and his lamb shank was, evidently, very agreeable.

Maybe this is a place for very conservative eaters with no idea of service? Such a shame as it could have been lovely....

We came across this quaint little restaurant by chance when passing through the village. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was absolutely outstanding. Our every need was catered for and we will certainly be returning. Would highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Facing the church of St Mary's is a lovely little restaurant called JK's at St Michaels. Went in for the Sunday carvery with the family - what a delightful find. Lovely seafood platter for starters, four different roasts, all cooked to perfection, with a huge variety of vegetables. Servings enormous - downside no room for dessert!! The staff were very friendly, professional and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone, and will certainly be going again.

In a quiet corner of rural England sits a restaurant with everything - fabulous food, welcoming staff and an ambience second to none. From the moment you enter you feel at home, the cosy layout suits all travellers. Nothing is too much trouble for Jean and her staff. Well worth a visit - I know I shall be returning.
