My family, wife, mother-in-law, father-in-law and my elderly mother and I had a pleasant evening here. Friendly staff and good value meal for the 5 of us cost just over £120. The resturant is on the first floor over the pub and there is no lift so not accessible for anyone in a wheel chair. But the staff were every helpful and opened up the side entrance and we used the back stair case for my elderly mother to use as these stairs were easier to use with hand rails.

We booked for the Sunday Lunch at the new Jaks restaurant upstairs. Was really impressed with the setup and the new restaurant. We were seated within 2 minutes of going in. We ordered drinks and were left to look over the menu, we all ordered lunch except for one who wanted something different. The meals came there were lots of it. The services was good, and with only costing £110 for the 5 of us including drinks, starters, mains and desserts.

We look forward to returning soon.

Really good food and value for money. Make sure you go to the stairs restaurant as the lower one is like a dungeon

My husband and I were recommended this restaurant by the landlady at the B&B we were staying at. She advised us to go early as tables usually had to be booked. We took her advice and were lucky enough to be assigned a table. The food was excellent as was the service of the staff. We would certainly recommend anyone visiting Douglas to try this lovely restaurant.
