The revamped restaurant was very nice and although the menu was not as extensive as previously enjoyed the quality, presentation and service were all of the highest order
The staff were friendly, attentive and keen to ensure we were content and feeling comfortable.
Would be happy to recommend

I had a wonderful time here. I requested a window seat and explained my nut allergy to staff and they were extremely accommodating and helpful. The restaurant is newly refurbed and looks amazing. I tried the pornstar martini cocktail and it was delicious. The look and feel of the venue is extremely welcoming and friendly, I will definitely be booking again myself and would recommend it to family and friends.

I ordered the small fish and chips, which was still a sizeable portion. The chips tasted good but were a strange colour, as if they had been cooking for too long. The food was not as good as it was when it was The Magpie. Slightly disappointed. There was little ambiance but that was down to there being fewer customers due to Covid. The hotel has clearly had a revamp but has lost the cosy olde worlde feel it had. Now there is little to distinguish it from every other hotel of its type. The staff were attentive and helpful, although we were left for longer than I would have liked before they took our order, however the food came quite quickly after. My husband had Christmas pudding, which was microscopic, and over-priced. This sounds as if we didn't enjoy the food but to be honest it wasn't bad overall.

The impeccable service I received at JD Young was the cherry on top of a stellar evening out. The cocktails were delicious, the food was of the highest standard, and the extensive drinks list was impressive. What they've done in the restaurant is beautiful, and the new playlist really sets the mood for a relaxing evening out. I can't praise JD Young enough for making our first evening out in over a month (curse you lockdown) a beautiful experience.
