We first stumbled across this place after a nice curry and liked the look of the comfy seats outside as well as hearing some decent music coming from the speakers. The cocktails were excellent and my non-drinking boyfriend loved the fruit juices, especially the passion fruit. It is so good to see somewhere which offers a wide variety of soft drinks as opposed to the normal Coke-or-water options you usually get. All of the staff were really lovely and told us how good the food was so we decided there and then that we would return the following evening for tea.
And we were most certainly not disappointed! My boyfriend had a delicious looking burger whilst I chose a pizza, which was massive, Half-price cocktails also went down a treat, especially the Apple Bomb, which was gorgeous. We sat outside after our meal and had a couple more drinks before heading back to our canal barge feeling full and happy.
It is a great place for groups of friends, families and couples as it caters for everyone. What was especially excellent is that the tables for couples were situated on a raised area in the middle of the restaurant, which offered a little privacy as they were away from larger parties so you could actually hear yourself speak. Little touches like this means so much to us if we want a nice quiet meal and I take my hat off to them as they have obviously put the customers' needs as a priority on their list, We would most definitely return as a couple or group of friends and sample more of the delicious food. Highly recommended.

Visited this place for the first time and will definitely return , quite a small compact place but very popular and very friendly . The portion sizes are excellent so don't let the prices sway you too much .
Would recommend booking before hand . And eat when it's opened as its a busy place.
The staff are friendly , and on the ball , I had a problem with my starter , had to send it back . Not only were they apologetic a complimentary drink and starter came back twice as big !!!!
Overall a good time had by all
Well done calico's

We have eaten at calico jacks a number of times now - sometimes for an occasion - and sometimes on those nights when you just don't fancy cooking and feel the need to go somewhere where you know the food will be great, the staff are fab and its no hassle. Never been disappointed.

We would actually rate this as 'good' - not quite worthy of a 'very good' so hence the 'average' rating. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the food is plentiful. I had the Greek Salad, which whilst nice was swimming in olive oil, which leaked out of the wooden plate it was served on, to the table mat below - not so nice. Another of our party had the Chicken Cordon Bleu - again it was nice but she found the ham filling a little too salty. We took advantage of the early bird offer, so it happened to be good value for money - not sure I'd want to pay full price for what we had. So overall while we had a nice meal, it wasn't the best.
