This was a very good lunch experience. There were several nice touches including lowering the volume of the music when asked and returning to the table to take our orders at a sensible time. I booked online and there were no tables available between 1230 and 1400 on the Saturday. As it turned out there were plenty of tables free at 1pm. I mentioned this to the supervisor and I guess this was a software glitch. If this happens to you it might be best to phone.

Service from waiting staff was fab (less so from the person who seemed to be head of front of house) 3/4 meals we ordered got sent back and then 2 of the replacements were just as bad or worse. Will not be dining here again or reccomending to friends and family in the area. Really liked the goats in the garden, they were cute.

We had a lovely lunch and whilst it was busy the staff were friendly. We particularly enjoyed the new Zealand Sav Blanc.

My companion had mobility problems and the staff were really helpful during the booking process and during the meal itself. It was not intrusive but really helpful. Many thanks.

Thank you so much for your excellent service on Monday evening. Service was brilliant considering we were such a big group with strange bar tab requests. The bar lady who served us behind the bar was very helpful and informative, and the people serving in the restaurant addressed people by name rather than food dish they were holding - a great customer service touch and much appreciated as it allowed for me to sit back and get to speak to colleagues. Atmosphere, food &drink and value for money were also great. All in all a lovely evening, thank you.

I’m afraid there was a slug (yep!) in my son’s drink and the chicken was pretty raw in the middle. Food okay but not very hot (we didn’t even mention that due to the other problems). On reflection, I don’t think 25% off the food bill was adequate. The staff were great, however, and the atmosphere, as always, lovely.

Really good service and lovely friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately the food let it down for us. The roast did not feel cooked properly. It just wasnt the best roast.

Absolutely brilliant service, the staff were attentive without being pushy. Food was delicious, really good portion size, really fresh and a great variety on the menu. It was a very busy Saturday lunchtime, but we felt really valued and appreciated as a booking. We will definitely be back!!!

Staff were very helpful. We all found our vegetables a little under done , they needed more time to roast. The food was under seasoned and my friend found her beef quite chewy and sent it back. I think for £16.50 the standard should have been higher.

Visited Jacob’s Inn for the first time on Thursday and really enjoyed it- we were greeted genuinely warmly and that friendly service continued throughout our meal without ever feeling forced. The food was delicious and we ordered quite a range, from superfood salad (fresh, crisp and healthy) to steak and chips (beautifully cooked, excellent chips) via fish cakes and chicken pie (rich on flavour and filling). Unusually for us we had desserts too and loved the lemon tart, peaches and affogato. Yesterday morning we were trying to work out how soon we could come back!

It was a busy Sunday lunch but the young staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. Service was slow in places and some staff training might be helpful on wine service and even condiments, which seemed to cause staff confusion!
