We visited on the off chance of lunch. Not overly full, and the background music was low. Service was good and the food met expectations. As other have said the food is simple fair, well cooked and well priced. Will go again.

Really like this place, good for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Always a good atmosphere, slightly older clientele which is good - no youngsters determined to drink as much as they can. Have always enjoyed myself here.

CJs is one of the best places to have a gathering with friends. The terrace is particularly stunning looking over St Swithuns church on a sunny day. There are regular events in the evenings which are very popular. A lovely friendly bar
