This is a hidden jem, from the moment we walked through the door the hospitality began. The surroundings are exceptional, the staff so attentive, and food is exquisite. We didn't want it to end, magical!

Food and service were very good. The background music was not to our taste and the lighting was a bit too dim.

This place certainly does a top class roast. Have tried several different ones in the area but Jd's is very hard to beat.
Great service, lovely wine and lovely atmosphere.

We got together for a 60t celebration dinner and took over the beautifully decorated garden room. The table looked amazing, chairs were really comfortable and we got a bottle of Prosecco on the house to start our celebrations. Great service , the only downside was the waitress tips could not be paid on cards and we had no cash between the 11 of us! Luckily the cash point is just outside 👍🏼
Wonderful night snd would thoroughly recommend.

Food was excellent value. Portion sizes were huge, too big for us, but maybe welcomed by some!

This was a really lucky find we are moving to the area and wanted to find a new favourite casual ding venue

We hit the jackpot
Great food, great ambiance, attentive and helpful staff, really fantastic setting

As we are knocking on music was slightly too loud but that is probably an age thing!
