Did not understand why I had to pay the bill as I went. We were sitting in the pub. Didn’t like this at all it felt like there was a feeling we may leg it without paying.
Lamb kebabs well over cooked very average food. Will not be returning.

JD Young
Responded on 4 June 2021

Thank you for your feedback, all comments are appreciated. We prefer customers dining in the bar or outside area to pay upon ordering food & drinks, which we have found to be a widely used policy. We are however disappointed however you did not feel the food was up to standard. If you would like to discuss this further please contact the hotel & we will be happy to help.

Really nice pub/hotel with very attractive decor. Staff helpful and friendly without being pushy. Waited a fair time for our food, but it was a Saturday night and they were very busy. Lively atmosphere but not "loud". Food excellent and well priced. Would have liked a "specials" board. Overall, a real find. Definitely going for a second visit. Hope this helps.

Centre of town. Large car parks nearby (free). But car parks busy at the moment because they are also being used as a Covid Vaccination Centre car park. JD Young easy to find on corner of market square. To types of eateries - one is in the bar section and the other is more of a restaurant. Very well furnished. Good menu with lots of different sections. Food when arrived was plentisome and very tasty. Staff pleasant and knowledgeable. Tables well spaced out. Will visit again.

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.
