Fab relaxed lunch guys! Thanks for your attentive service! Fish cake looked and tasted gorgeous and the spicy peppers were a great starter. Huge bowl of salad too. Will visit again

Have used this venue several times, mostly for pre or post cinema or theatre dinner. Staff always polite and helpful, atmosphere warm and vibrant, intereting menu for both food and drink. Altogether a very pleasant experience

I have eaten in this Pub regularly. They are very good for meals for occasions. The menu is comprehensive. It can be a bit noisy but has a great atmosphere.

I've been happily coming to the Jug for almost 20 years, have recommended it to family and friends throughout that time but would be hugely embarrassed if they took me up on that recommendation now. I'm writing this at my table happy in the knowledge that none of the staff will annoy me in any way or pay any attention... More

Not one to ever write a bad review previously, however I feel the need to warn others about the terrible service received here. I was with family celebrating a special occasion yesterday and orders scallops for a starter (absolute rip off- 3 small scallops for £11!). I obviously appeared surprised with this as I went to find the waitress, just... More

We booked and went for an early evening meal before the theatre. We were seated in the bar area - busy, buzzy and comfortable. We were served at our table and the food was delicious - Parfait for my Wife and Smoked trout for me, followed by Coronation chicken salad for 'The Boss' and a gorgeous crusty steak pie for... More

We booked a table one week before , but when we were ordering the food we discovered that several options in the menu where not available like roast potatoes, roast beef and vegetables . The service was very slow, lack of flexibility from the chef to find alternative solution to the options missing in the menu and the food was... More

Love this place all be it a bit on the pricey side but I'd happily pay more for a nice ambience and good food and drink. I'd recommend booking as it's always busy, a nice outdoors area for the summer (although they need to fix the heat lamps) and often little events to enjoy such as local ale nights.

We had an excellent evening, with superb food and good service. Although predominantly a good pub the rear section is used for the food. We couldn't fault anything, and had a very enjoyable meal.
