We went out to this restaurant as an of-chance while we were out one evening and we were both amazed at the brilliant food, service & atmosphere. A real hidden gem.

We had really tasty, and quite exotic, food. We also ordered a steak - that was also great.

The dessert was the highlight, a fresh Rum & Raisin crème brûlée. Everything was fantastic and we highly recommend it. There's a strip of a few restaurants in the local area, but this has to be the best of them; as we have tried them all!

We were so impressed we wrote this review - which is something we've never done! We'd defiantly go back!

I go to this restaurant at least once a month, and the service is always very good. Staff are attentive to diners needs, and are pleasant. A good menu selection of dishes, with the evening early bird up to 6:30pm very popular.

Five of us booked a table for the early bird meal (5.30-6.30). On arrival, we waited for several minutes to be seated even though two members of staff noticed us. There was no warm welcome and we were grudgingly shown to a table and given menus. We waited almost 20 minutes before a waitress came to take our order, inspite of 2 waitresses hovering nearby and ignoring us. When we asked one of them to take our order the reply was "someone will be along in a moment". The portion size was good and food hot, however the burgers were rather greasy. We found the waiters very polite (they were not English but their command of the language was excellent ). Sadly, the waitresses were very brusque and inattentive. A few lessons in customer relations would not go amiss. On leaving, no member of staff asked if we had enjoyed the meal or even attempted to hold the door open, perticularly as they were hardly rushed off their feet.

We have eaten at the JS restaurant many times and as recently as last night. What entices us to return is its level of consistency in producing excellent food and providing an exceptionally high level of service. The other crucial factor is that the proprietor and the Chef ensure that menus stay fresh and exciting. In addition to the varied regular menu the 'Specials Menu' which contains starters,mains and desserts is frequently updated giving diners who eat there more often something new each time to look forward to. Even though the JS has been around for many years it certainly does not rest on its laurels.The proprietor really cares about his customers and can be seen in the restaurant stopping to chat at tables and enquire if everything is satisfactory? He has done this at all our visits and indeed last night was no exception. He has even noted our personal tastes and regularly makes recommendationsand and asks for our opinion. This is someone who is truly interested in their business and clientel. He has also noiced that we appreciate fine wine, even noting that we especially enjoy red. Last night after welcoming us he informed of some new wines he was adding to the wine list. We did indeed follow his suggestion and tried and enjoyed an excellent new French Cabernet Sauvignon. All the staff at JS are warm and welcoming and highly efficient. It is well worth a visit and deserves to be supported. It can get very busy and that speaks for itself so booking is recommended!
