We ate outside in the garden, which is delightful. Service was great, as was the food. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and would happily return.

Burgers and coffee cold when arrived, although chips piping hot. Fried egg on burger missed from order. Staff very nice though. Bit chilly outside in the tent but not the pubs issue. Do like the new produce store inside the old bar area.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch at Jacob's Inn - we sat in the open air marquee area, and the atmosphere was lovely. The only downside was that the food took a very long time to appear - well over an hour. Luckily your incredible server Jo was an absolute delight and looked after us so well that the wait didn't affect our overall experience. Without asking, Jo was even kind enough to give us a discount on our bill which was a really nice touch - she honestly went above and beyond and is a real credit to the business. I would definitely return to Jacob's Inn, thank you for having us!

A two hour wait for food is not acceptable We appreciate the free drinks offered but it must have been known about when we arrived and we could have been given the opportunity to choose to go elsewhere

My family and I didn’t feel valued as a customer at all. The service was far from ideal. Our child’s dinner came out incorrectly twice. The servers openly discussed not knowing current government guidelines on Covid, which was of great concern. I shall not be returning anytime soon.

Felt pretty disorganised from the moment we arrived. Had to stop our waiter after a long wait to ask where are drinks were, then only one of them brought out! We had to ask where my glass of wine was!! The charcuterie board was unimpressive & we had to ask for the ‘breadsticks’ (which had been forgotten). They weren’t breadsticks at all!! more like bite sized bread nibbles? The pizzas were just okay nothing to rave about....we thought we’d give dessert a miss. It’s a shame as it was our first post lockdown meal & was really looking forward to it.

Food great, staff attentive and friendly. Lovely inn. Dined outside due to covid restrictions but wouldn't have swapped to inside, luckily wonderfully sunny!

Whist we enjoined our time I feel that £14.50 is very steep for a veggie dish which was essentially a cauliflower and some cabbage 😳 it was tasty but the middle of the cauliflower was very hard so disappointing for me.

Food was very good and also the service. The location is perfect for a nice walk afterwards.

The weather was pants, so we really felt for the staff members having to walk around in the rain. We still left the full tip, merely because we felt sorry for the staff being yelled at by about five other tables around us and having to serve in the rain.. ultimately though just based on actual service, it was really poor experience and we probably wouldn't come back unfortunately. The two pies we had for mains were also burned, with dry as a bone filling. The mash was nice though but for some mashed potato, probably not worth the price :)

Marquee was beautifully decorated, seating comfortable. There was a reasonably long wait for food despite the marquee only having a few tables of guests, but the goats and chickens in the garden kept the toddler in our group happy. When the food arrived it was a bit cold and missing items that had been listed on the menu such as hash browns and black pudding in the breakfasts, so was a bit of a disappointment, especially for the price. But the venue was great and really appreciated the shelter from the rain whilst guidelines are that we sit outside.

The food at the Jacobs Inn used to be great. So disappointed that it’s gone downhill - the fish and chips tasty of old grease and not much else. We all regretted eating them.

Great to be back and lovely to be able to bring dogs, and thanlkkk you for making the alterations to be able to accommodate your diners. A couple of points about the food: roast chicken was not 'roast' chicken. Possibly flat ironed, but no what was expected, and a little chewy! Roast leg of lamb came in small, fatty pieces which my elderly mother struggled with, and fed most to her dog! Also, I think your staff were a bit stretched towards the end of our visit - we had to ask for the desert menu, then nobody came to take our pudding order so we just asked for the bill which took a while! 12.5% service a little steep for below average service. Having said all that, we will be back as Jacob's Inn has previously been great. Hope you will take this as constructive criticism.

I was very disappointed with my meal at Jacobs Inn. Although the food was nice I felt it was over priced for what it was. The service was terrible, we ordered desserts which never arrived, we enquired a few times and we were simply brushed off with "they will be here shortly". Eventually, after an hour of waiting we decided to give up and asked for the bill. Someone did come and apologise but they had the gall to say "we have not charged you for the desserts"! I am new to the area and that was my first visit, I will be reluctant to go back.

Myself and my partner had a great time. The food and service was excellent. One thing I would like to flag is a comment made to my partner who is of ethnic descent by our waitress. When shown to our seats the waitress complimented my partners hair by saying she loves it followed by a further comment of asking 'is it all yours?' . Though we were sure the intention was solely to compliment her, we would highly advise that such things should not be said to customers from marginalised backgrounds. This comment can be extremely isolating and upsetting for people from our community. As mentioned before we had a really nice time but we hope that this kind of language is not used to other customers as it can really be damaging to the experience.

The staff and host in particular were so helpful in moving us to shelter when it started to rain. We had a really wonderful time.
