“Good food- bad toilets”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Visited Jack Spratt on a voucher deal midweek. The front of house is eclectic.and a little quirky. The staff were very pleasant and the food was tasty and well presented.
Where this establishment falls down massively is the terrible washroom facilities. For a city centre restaurant the toilets were akin to what you would find in a field at a pop festival. The management need to improve on this quickly.

“Poor toilet facilities”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Visited 31.1.14. Meal was lovely,.staff very pleasant and helpful, would have made another visit in the near future until I visited the toilets. What a disgrace, one was a building site, the other looked like a few pieces of chip board had been nailed together with big gaps ever where. This really needs sorting.

“Average food at a premium price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is a comfortable restaurant which offers good service and a reasonable range of comfort food.
We came for lunch and decided to go for a couple of signature dishes. We shared the Pulled Pork and Smoked Cheese sandwich and the Fish butty. We decided to share a portion of the onion rings as they were highly recommended both on Trip Advisor and by our waiter.
The sandwiches were reasonable with the pork the better in our opinion and there was a little shortage in the fish sandwich with the bread easily winning.
The onion rings could have being better but they should have had at least 30 seconds to drain the excess oil from them as the top two were nice but the longer they sat in the bucket the greasier they become.
The bill cam to just under £20 with two cokes which was a little on the expensive side but with a little more care and attention this may have being worth the money.

“Still good but ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

.disappointed last night (Sunday night arrived 19.30). Our first choice for mains (chuck stew) was off the menu sadly, so we chose the feta burger & prawn stew: both good but no more (as were the starters). Their advertised 30% of selected wines & champagnes (board outside) was 30% of their Malbec which turned out good for us but others may have wanted a choice. Big annoyance was when our starters left and mains arrived within a minute. Yes, there were few people in there but I have been in a similar situation in other places when this has not happened. I have been more positive in previous reviews but have to say how it went down.
