    We arrived for our booking at 6.55 - the table was booked for 7pm. We were seated and given menus. Within just a couple of minutes we had drinks and our order was taken. From then on it went downhill. We waited ad waited and waited but no food came. Then food tarted to come for people who had arrived after us !!!! We spoke to the waitress who said she would find out where our food was. She are ack and sai it was’Just being plated up and would be with us in 5 minutes. 15 mins passed and still no food. y this time we were sorely tempted to walk out but not knowing the area we didn’t know where else to go. We then spoke to the waiter who told us it was almost ready and would be next out!!! When we mentioned that others were getting their food before us he did say this was because we had ordered ‘complicated food!’ Haddock and chips and a Thai green curry are not complicated, I could have gone out to the kitchen and cooked it myself in the time it was taking to serve us.Another 8 minutes passed and finally a plate of food did arrive in front of me, sadly it was not what I ordered. It was taken away. Then my husband curry arrived it of course he had to tart without me. The haddock and chips did arrive within 10 mins and I have to at that the food wa very good it was the service that let them down. We did get a lot of apologies from the serving staff but apologies do not make a meal perfect. I wouldn’t recommend J D Young’s to anyone just in case they go on another night when they are short staffed or just really busy

    We apologise that some of the aspects of your visit were not up to the high standard we strive for. All our food is cooked from fresh which can on occasions mean during busier times service can be slightly delayed. On this occasion, we can only apologise for the wait time you experienced with your food for the order to not be correct. We hope that our gesture of good will of a free meal & drink on the evening has been enough that you will consider visiting us in the future. Thankyou JD Young

    I was really looking forward to my meal here as it looked great online and had some good reviews. However I was throughly disappointed! The restaurant was extremely loud due to a karaoke which I was not informed about. Service was very poor and my food was brought out while I was in the bathroom! My desert was cold and hard as the it had been sat in the kitchen as the chef had left early apparently. Steak was okay, not brilliant. Place is beautiful but the service and food is disappointing sadly. I contacted the restaurant to let them know about my experience, and I did not receive an apology from them. I do not understand why they have replied to this comment saying I could discuss this further, when I have already done so and did not get an apology. Instead I was told my comments would be passed onto management. Absolutely shocking service!

    JD YoungResponded on 16 June 2022

    Firstly, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, all feedback is appreciated. We're sorry to hear some of the aspects of your visit were not up to the high standard we strive for due to the Jubilee Karaoke event we were holding at the time. If you would like to discuss this with us further, please do not hesitate to contact the hotel. We do hope you will return in the future.

    Wow! Only picked this place as it had gluten free options marked on the menu (I’m coeliac), & was local to where we were staying on a short break. But wow!! The hotel was smart & the restaurant was out of this world with fairy lights, foliage, velvet seats & chandeliers. Very elegant & not in the least expected. Go hungry as the portions are huge & extremely good value for money. The gf options were amazing, staff were clued up & friendly & the Pornstar Panna Cotta was to die for!

    On arrival were initially sat at a table with a lot of overhanging artificial foliage above it which restricted the seating area for two of our party of four. They seem to have gone a bit over the top with the foliage decoration in the restaurant since the place was redecorated. However there was no problem being moved to a more suitable table once we pointed out the issue. Sugest a rethink of their table plan. Service was good and food was very good, but took quite a while to arrive, considering we only had one course and drinks

    Our first time at this place and we had a really good meal, generous portions, well served and helpful staff. Id have given it 5 stars if the music had t been a mite intrusive. Something calmer would have been nice. I mentioned it to a member of staff as we were leaving and they were apologetic.
