Lovely restaurant and staff. Food was very nice apart from chips being overdone.
Lovely meal and friendly staff, enjoyed our evening and lovely cocktail!
Thank you for leaving us a review!
Very nice food, restaurant nice decor, staff friendly
Thank you, we're glad you like the recent renovations! See you again soon.
Lovely food and people, bit of a wait for food but you expect that when it’s busy and it was well worth it
Great place to eat and in stumbling distance of home. Staff are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Great choice of food and a pleasant place to eat.
Thanks for your positive feedback! We look forward to seeing you in the future!
Lovely place lovely food and good value. Will be going back
We look forward to next time! Thanks!
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.
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.
Thank you for making a night of our holiday very special. We visited with my 2 children we felt very comfortable and was made to feel very welcome we will definitely visit again when we return xx
That's great! We are glad you enjoyed your time with us Charlotte! We look forward to next time.
Lovely Sunday trip to the countryside. Great service and Sunday roast.
We're glad you enjoyed our Sunday Roast! Thank you for your review!
A very pleasant evening and enjoyable meal. Hopefully, as things settle down, the menu will return to its former glory (18 months ago, pre Covid)
We appreciate your comments, thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
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.
Thank you for your positive comments! We appreciate your feedback & look forward to next time.
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.
Thank you for your detailed review, Madeline. We're glad you enjoyed your visit & hope you soon return!
Great food, excellent staff. Would definitely recommend and do a return visit.
Great! Thank you for your review! See you next time.
We enjoyed our meal at JD Young.
The changes that have been made were very good.
The choice of menu was also good.
I would certainly recommend this restaurant.
We're glad you like the new refurbishments, Miken! Come back soon!
Poor acoustics and music too high. Food was ok. No fish mains was disappointing. Service was good
Fabulous service , food and atmosphere. Henry ,the perfect host 👌
Amazing, thank you for a great review! We look forward to next time.
One of the best Sunday lunches we have had in a long time. Will definitely be returning!
Thank you for your kind comments! See you again!

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
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad you enjoyed your visit & look forward to welcoming you back when the restrictions are lifted.
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.
Thank you for a fantastic review! We're glad you enjoyed your visit & look forward to seeing you again!
Very nice meal from the new chef .
The new decor looks fab . We just sat in the bar but equally nice surroundings .
Kara our waitress was very attentive .
As we’re local we have been many times and always pleased .
The new outside area with heating looks great , I’m yet to try it !!
Thank you, Michael! We appreciate your comments & can't wait to see you soon.
It was an excellent meal. The staff were great, the food was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Not rushed out the door either, time to relax with our coffee.
We're pleased your visit was an enjoyable one! Come back & see us soon!
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.
Lovely Sunday roast, excellent service, refurbished restaurant very lovely.
Thank you Lesley! We're happy enjoyed your roast! We look forward to welcoming you back soon :)
Fabulous food. Love the decor. Service efficient and friendly. Best Pornstar Martini I have had in a while. Hope you stay busy.
Thank you Lynn! We love our Pornstar Martinis too!
Would recommend giving J D a try.
We would certainly go back again and I am quite fussy.
That's very kind of you Ken! We're happy you enjoyed it! :)
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.
Thank you, Jess! A superb review! We're glad your evening with us was a good one, be sure to come back soon & try more cocktails!
JDs is a nice, convenient and friendly place for a meal or drink
Thank you for your review, Andy! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Just had a great meal in jd's the new restaurant is absolutely stunning, the staff were outstanding, it felt like I was in the ivy, only with better service
P.s the raspberry daiquiri was to die for 🍸
Thank you for a great review! The raspberry daiquiri is a staff favourite, we're glad you loved it as much as we do! See you soon for more cocktails.
Wonderful lunch in lovely surroundings. This restaurant has recently been refurbished and looks wonderful. The staff are very helpful and the food was fabulous. Will definitely be going again.
Great review, thank you Tina!
