A fabulous place to have my birthday with all my family gathered together. Food was great and service so good with all that amount of people. Thank you. We will be back.

A few years back, a trip to Jacobys was a real treat - our favourite restaurant for miles for the sheer quality of the food (I still remember the most incredible beef wellington from back in the day - one of the best meals I've ever eaten...). Since then, the management I think has changed - and the quality is... More

It could have gone either way. It was a busy night and we had arrived from the U.S. and when to dinner with two local family members. When we were told the special pie was steak and ale, my mouth began watering and two of us ordered it. When it came, it wasn't beef but chicken. We were told they... More

We had our Christmas works party in Jacoby's and I must say it was fantastic. They catered for 45 people very well. The food was amazing, the staff were friendly and very accommodating. I had a fabulous contact in Chloe who was very helpful and met all of our needs. We really had a fabulous evening and would recommend this... More

I was assured by bar staff it was fresh! When may I ask ! we sent the 2 plates back and apprehensive to try it again we ordered thrice cooked chips... More

Dear Sir/Madam, I am really upset/ shocked to hear about your experience with us last weekend. I’d firstly like to apologise that your evening wasn’t up to the standards that we strive to produce and the service you received does not reflect the attentive service we aim to give.

We were a large party, 6 adults and 7 children and we were seated in a 'side room' which was nice. However, the service was SLOW and on every course, there were things that were not available after ordering, and 1 second choice starter was also not available. The food itself, when it finally came, can only be described as... More

Went for lunch. Great atmosphere, pleasant location and great staff. Only had Ham, Egg and Chips but it was fabulous. Quality ham, perfectly cooked egg and triple fried chips made perfect!! Deserts were wonderful and here's where the quality service kicks in. The fruit in my summer pudding has started to ferment. Sincere apologies, immediately solved by the appearance of... More
