Nice friendly staff and good seating inside. Kids had ice creams while the adults had coffee. Not the cheapest place but it was good coffee. I would like to return to try the food.

Went into jacks with the family on Sunday and what a fantastic meal we all had from the great value burgers to the lovely milkshakes and sundays which was the wife’s favourite. Staff were very friendly and helpful so we will be back 👍

Staff were super friendly. We ate here with our children. Food is nice, perhaps portions are a little large as I couldn't eat all of mine. Reasonable price for meals. We had 2 adults and 4 children with drinks the meal came to £53.
