    Our first time dining at Jacques and it was wonderful. Staff were welcoming, polite, very knowledgeable on the food and drink menus, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was served quickly and was delicious. The decor and especially the aircon were lovely. Will definitely be returning.

    Food was lovely and very filling. Service was good but slow We had to take our gorgeous cakes home as we couldn't finish everything but they ran out of boxes and bags so we were left with taking them home in many small metal containers. It wasn't suitable and not to stand

    Second visit and was a little disappointed. We had the afternoon tea and it took a very long time to get our waitresses attention and took over 40 minutes for her to get our bill. We wanted to take our left overs home and was just given some tin take away boxes which didn’t fit the scones in anyway. First visit was amazing and top class, second visit a little disappointing.

    We’ve had two previous meals here which were great. The food this time was bland at best, some dishes arrived cold. It took about 30 mins from arrival to get a drink order taken and a further 30 to get the drinks (just wine, no cocktails or anything complicated so can’t explain what took so long). There was then about an hour between serving each course after finishing the previous one, despite some dishes presumably being pre-prepared. The restaurant didn’t appear understaffed so we can’t see why this was the case. We had a £30 for three courses offer which looked good value based on how nice previous meals here were, but this was very disappointing even for that price and the food and service did not reflect the ‘upmarket’ experience the restaurant tries to present. We asked for the service charge (which was automatically applied to the bill) to be taken off - we’ve not done this at a restaurant before but there was nothing that warranted a tip in this visit, if anything it deserved a complaint and a partial refund, but it was too late to be worth arguing for by the time we left.

    Wonderful place. Clean as a whistle and decor is lovely. I love that they have a greeter and Jo Robertson was the perfect host. Staff very friendly, efficient, professional. I’ve been before and this visit didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Plenty of free of charge water - a real plus for me. Such a treat.

    Anniversay Sunday lunch. Excellent food and service and exceeded our expectations. Normally you get piddly portions and a thimble of gravy (or “jus”😜) but it was just the right amount to need an afternoon resting on the sofa! Will definitely return but as you always get what you pay for - this isn’t a Toby Carvery by any stretch!! 👏👏👏👌😉
