I decided on Jack’s for a girls get together. Having seen the menu on line I thought it boded well. We weren’t disappointed! The choice of food was extensive and catered for all requirements. The prices were all reasonable and the portions were generous!
All the staff were friendly and helpful with no request being too difficult.
Tables were clean as was the whole area.
If I had one criticism it would be that one loo for a place that size isn’t enough especially when it’s busy.
That said, we had a wonderful lunch in a place that provided excellent food, attentive staff and a great atmosphere.
Thank you Jack’s!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We have passed your comments on to the chef, we are also investing in some more water jugs as they have been in high demand this weekend with the hot weather hence the slightly slower service in getting the water out to you. So sorry about that. We hope to see you again soon!

Responded on July 18, 2021

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so sorry you experienced slow service. On the odd occasions we try to stagger service to allow for our kitchen team to cope with orders. On this occasion it was obviously too long and we are so sorry to hear it was very slow. A lot of our core team are currently isolating so we are sorry you experienced a less friendlier service than we aspire to with our core team. We hope to welcome you back soon!

We had a lovely time at bottomless brunch but as we were kept waiting for 15 minutes outside and didn't get our 1st prosecco until 25 minutes after our booking started we did not have the 2 hours as stated.. we got 1 hour 35 minutes which was a little disappointing. Food was nice and staff were pleasant.

Would not recommend the bottomless brunch to other due to the above..or just warm folk they might not get a full 2 hours.

Responded on July 18, 2021

We are so sorry you experienced a delay in service. We actually run a two hour slot rather than an hour and a half to allow you to get the most out of your brunch and ensure that once you’ve ordered, your glasses are refilled immediately! We do mention in our terms and conditions that a delay in service may occur over busy times but we do our absolute best to refill as soon as you finish the previous drink and someone is allocated to your table to allow for this. We hope you come back again!

A lovely atmosphere at Jack’s with friendly staff and a high standard of service - albeit a little slow on this occasion. We waited longer than usual for our food and this meant the experience was rushed with the time window we had. The quality of food was good - missing the huevos rancheros on the menu!

Over busy times and with a lot of our staff having to self isolate we are trying our absolute absolute best to give the best service possible but are sorry we fell short on this occasion. We hope you come back again soon with speedier service in the future!

We had a chai latte, a flat white, a bacon in a brioche bun (3 rashers of bacon in a tiny roll) and omelette arnold bennet (smoked haddock in an omelette in a small earthen ware dish, i'd say a two egg omelett which was nice but again on the small side) which came to £21 . Nice but not good value in any way shape or form

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I will pass this on to our head chef. All our items are freshly made on site including the brioche rolls which are made fresh each morning and produce is sourced from the highest quality local suppliers which is reflected in our prices. Unfortunately this does mean items are a little more expensive than places that don’t provide this service. We hope you visit us again soon!

Appeared to be run by young untrained people with no one in charge
Service was poor. We arrived first for a confirmed booking to be seated and other tables be served before us.
Arrived at 9am to finally be served at 9.45 with what seemed like microwaved bacon .
A comment was made by one member of staff asking another who is first?
Extremley Disappointing and poor value !

Our table wasn't ready when we arrived which wasn't a big deal but we had to wait on the street for 10 mins until it was ready. When we were seated we were only given a drinks menu and then 15 minutes later we called someone over to ask about the menu, which was a small chalkboard on the floor, hard to ready from where we were sitting. Drinks arrived promptly but one of our party had to wait approx. 5 minutes after everyone else for her meal to arrive. Food was OK but nothing special. We sat outside which was OK for those of us in the shade but the glass roof made it very hot for the others. Won't rush back

We had lunch here on a Saturday. We don't live in the area and we needed a place that allows dogs. Jacks Tea Room's name has popped up on Google. The food menu was slightly reduced, we tried the burger and poached eggs on toast with smoked salmon. The food was good, service was okay, staff was friendly.
