We visited on Wednesday 13th Feb for mine and my partners anniversary. We had an excellent meal as always, service is always fab. Can't fault the restaurant. Unknown to me that my partner had been planning to propose, and did so. It was perfect, the place, staff, friendliness. All the staff knew about this and made everything so special, with champagne, roses, etc. Wonderful. A big thank you to all the staff at Jabula

Small and intimate, just the place to celebrate my husband's 60th. The atmospere was great and the food was even better. The staff do all they can to ensure you have a great time, including singing happy birthday in 3 languages. The birthday challenge was a huge success. Definately cant wait to go back.

Stayed with the family at the Holiday Inn, Ellesmere Port, which is a two minute walk from Jabula. Went for 6pm without booking unfortunately they couldn't fit us in. Not to be defeatest we booked for the following lunch time because the place felt right. Sunday lunch came and we were not disappointed. Atmosphere, staff, menu and service were all spot on. All the family tried the game pot and crocodile curry. Simply fantastic. During our time there the staff were able to talk through the menu, nothing was any trouble for them. And the kids loved the Bubblegum Ice-cream and playing the drums with the owner. Can't wait to go back even though we live near Leeds.

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Jabula. We had never been there before despite having family in the area. The service was excellent and the food amazing with such a wide variety of choice. We where made to feel very welcome and special. We will definitely be returning again with more of our family. It's worth booking in advance as its a small venue and is very popular
