The whole experience was excellent. I can honestly say all 9 people thoroughly enjoyed their meal, so much so we would drive the 1.5 hours for another meal. The steak was the best we have ever had and for the price it was exceptional.
Couldn't recommend enough

Had the chicken burger this time, was delicious but for 5* it needs a small salad with it as with the chicken kebabs, burger and chips on a plate looks a little lost!

We sat in the far corner of the restaurant and were unfortunately underneath a speaker which was playing ‘something’. We could not hear ourselves speak so asked if it could be turned down. This was not a problem and in actual fact was turned off. Nobody else in the restaurant seemed to realise the lack of ‘music’. We much appreciated this gesture and would ask
you to give some thought to lowering the music in the restaurant and see if anyone questions this!
Really lovely Sunday lamb roast. Perfect!
We will be back! Thanks

We were a party of four. We all had a starter and main course. Starters were delicious and just the right size portion for us all. Then three us had steak which we cooked ourselves on the volcanic rock. The steak was some of the best we had tasted, accompanied by chips, side salad and onion rings. The other guest in our party had a kebab which he also said was good. We will certainly return to J D Young and thoroughly recommend the steak.

This was our first visit since the redecoration was completed.
The bar area now has much brighter, and lighter, feeling to it.
Our breakfasts were superbly cooked with very tasty ingredients and the griddled bacon adds a nice element to it.

My first dinning experience since change of ownership, first impressions refurbishment has been tastefully done, I love all of the palms around. My party all had three courses, truly a excellent evening. Food and taste of a high standard would recommend to all, even if you only want a snack. Can't wait to return, thankyou.

Very nice meal but wasn’t happy that they didn’t sit us at the table until I asked if our table was ready half and hour after our table was booked for. After seeing people leave and tables free. They just left us to wait on the sofas.

We had an excellent meal with a starter and main course. The flavour was really delicious although the large portion of the main course beat us all leaving no room for dessert. The service was very good although because of how busy it was we had quite a wait for our main course. The restaurant was very busy being Fathers Day so was a little noisy. I am sure on a less busy day the food and restaurant service would be perfect. Well worth a visit.

Great setting, never been before. Great options for breakfast, although could have been a better choice as one guest is dairy free. No milk options, not much choice for breakfast for vegan options.
Good food, tasted great, good quality and presented well.
Service was good mostly, unfortunately one member of staff far more abrupt than the others who were amazing.

Will def return

Having vowed to never bother to go back to JD’s. It was my birthday and wedding anniversary. We had seen that there had been many changes through these covid times, so decided to give it a try. Exterior and interior looked good and the service was excellent. Lovely meal, well presented and no long wait. Will we be going back???? Most definitely 🙂

Lovely food and drink of not slightly over priced.
Amazing staff and service.
Despite booking in advance there weren’t enough place settings for us at the table we were shown to, quickly rectified by lovely staff.
There were quite a few flies around the dining room so we had to keep swatting them away from our food.
Overall a lovely evening and we will be returning soon!

Excellent setting sitting outside, friendly, helpful staff, food prices offering small or large portions very reasonable, however wine and beer prices too high. £6.50 for a large glass of white wine (could buy a bottle for that); wonder how these pubs/restaurants justify this. Doesn’t make sense.
