“Fish Here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Good choice of fish dishes here, some subject to market price, but a good varied menu, would describe as british food, nice wine list, only small so need to book on weekends, only open in the evening except lunch on Sunday.

“Friday 12 April 2013”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Lovely meal, crumpet with goats cheese was sublime!!! We had a window table which was fantastic. The main course, lamb, was ok but slightly tasteless. The ambience and feel of the place was lovely, the staff whilst helpful didnt seem the happiest, friendliest staff I'd ever met. Overall though had a lovely evening and the price was ok.

“Big matted Hair in food, little recompense”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Having tried on the Friday to get a table and failing as they were busy we were keen to book for the Saturday and had some serious celebrating to do, therefore looked
forward to our reservation all day! We arrived and were stuck in a corner next to the stacked crates of bottled larger which was immediately disappointing as it was very cramped but que cera, we were happy to get a table.
Started arrived fairly promptly considering they seemed rather stretched, and were just ok, fairly bland but we were anticipating our main and didn't make a fuss.
Steak arrived and after trying to get someone's attention for maybe 10mins we eventually got 1 single steak knife between us!!
Ten minutes into our mains my partner found a long curly matted mass of human hair in his mouth and was very close to vomiting. Me being pregnant instantly dropped my cutlery in fear of what might lurk on my plate.
It took a further 10minutes to get staffs attention to let them know of the lapse of hygiene in their kitchen.
We have no complaints whatsoever about the lovely blonde waitress who met with our problem. She was attentive and embarrassed and apologised profusely, we even joked with her that it was clearly not hers (as it was dark red) and she needn't fret so.
After some wait, growing ever more uncomfortable and embarrassed she returned having said the mains had been taken from the bill. (I should think so! We couldn't eat them!)
We left having paid for our rubbish starters and some bread and oil and drinks without any visit from a manager and no further recompense for our awful experience. It left a very bad, very hairy taste. Which is sad as we had very high hopes for Jacksons.
BOKE!!!

Excellent 3 course fixed price menu and large selection of quality wines. Advisable to book as this restaurant is very popular.
