“In a backwater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I regularly enjoy a Sunday Lunch at Jack's. The staff are always friendly and the little extras like freshly baked bread with a election of different butters included is a nice touch.
1,2 or 3 course Sunday lunch at set prices. Food presentation is excellent, particularly the starters and desserts. 3 courses for £21.95 with food of this quality is certainly good value.
Unfortunately today we were the only customers which is the first time ever although sometimes there might only be a couple of tables occupied.
Enormous car park and only a short drive down a lane from the A4 where it passes Corsham.
It is located in Hartham House, a business centre although you wouldn't know that out of normal working hours.
Try it......you won't be disappointed.

“Deserves to be busier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Booked online, worked perfectly, including the request for a nice table as was anniversary meal. The staff were really excellent. The food was very good indeed and deserved far more than three tables of people who were in on a Friday night. Decent wine selection. Very reasonably priced for food of this standard - £93 for three course meal and wines for two.

The place is clearly geared up to being a quality corporate conference centre. The restaurant is more than a token effort but feels like its been tagged on a bit. It wouldn't take much to get this to be excellent in terms of decor and atmosphere. We wanted a quiet table but had we been wanting a lively night, felt we would have to have made our own atmosphere.

Jack's is well worth a visit and is far less known than it deserves to be. Just needs a little bit more thought going into how the restaurant is presented and marketed to really put it to the top of its bracket. We will definitely go again.

“Good food, great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I thought Jack's was brilliant. The food was amazing and I really can't fault anything. Hartham Park is such a beautiful setting and never fails to impress.

“Good food but spoilt by Chef's poor planning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We recently went to Jacks bar and booked a table for Saturday lunchtime for 8 people for our parent's wedding anniversary. Three of us had the ham, egg and chips which we had been told from others that the triple cooked chips at Jacks were 'to die for'. When the plates arrived for the three of us we were all very disappointed to have French fries and only one of the party had the triple cooked chips as described on the menu (and this was served as their side order.). we were told that they had 'run out' of triple cooked chips - this was 12.00 Saturday lunchtime and we were the first party to arrive.

If I had wanted Mcdonalds chips for lunch I would have gone to Mcdonalds.

The rest of the party's choices were good but we were disappointed that despite having booked and therefore assuming that most restaurants would expect chips to be ordered by at least a couple of the party this had not been prepared for.

Beautiful surroundings and the waiting staff were very polite, courteous and friendly. Just a slight disappointment with the choice for three of us.

“A lovely surprise within a beautiful stately home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We visited Jacks in the evening for a family member's 50th birthday and wouldn't hesitate to return. Wonderful high quality food presented beautifully. Friendly and attentive staff, magnificent decor and all excellent value for money. In our opinion the restaurant is actually better than some of the well known Bath eateries... at a fraction of the price. Perfect for special occasions!
