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.
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 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
