The food was very good however the wait for it was way too long. Our table was booked for 7.30, we got our starters at 8.40 and main meal at 10pm. The staff were very apologetic however by the time the food arrived, it was too late in the evening for me to really enjoy it.

We waited over 1.5 hours for our food and in the end we cancelled our order. We were four ladies looking to have a nice meal together. We ended up sharing three plates of chips at 10pm in another pub as that was all we could get. Not the evening we had planned - especially when we had pre-booked with you for 8pm. However, our waitress at Samuel Jones was lovely. How she remained calm with so many customers complaining I do not know, but she was a credit to your company.

Took my wife for her birthday, my meal was very nice but her steak was very salty. Could possibly have just been over seasoned which is a shame as it was a lovely piece of steak.

Really poor. I am giving up on Samuel Jones. They just disappoint all the time. Was brought out a chicken salad. The sliced chicken on it was clearly raw. How had that gone unnoticed by the chef/waitress? It was re-made but by the time it came out I had just been put off and ate very little. I mentioned this when the plates were cleared and I got sympathy but no efforts were made to compensate me. We paid full price for a meal I didn’t eat due to their mistake. Oh and the white wine on a hot summers day was warm, not chilled. I’ve given up on this place. Such a shame as I live directly opposite it and could have been a frequent customer if they had got their act together.

We were served by a lady called Kylee, her customer service was exceptional. She demonstrated knowledge of the menu, was accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend Samuel Jones to others based on our experience.

The location on the quayside is very nice. Our waitress was lovely, friendly and helpful. The menu prices are slightly higher than other close by restaurants. I had looked at the menu before booking as we only eat chicken and fish, however the menu given on Saturday was different to that online. There are two fish dishes available but not a single chicken dish on the main menu! The only chicken was a burger or added to a salad. In a smokehouse I would expect a main chicken dish. So for us the menu was very limited. There should be at least one choice of chicken.

Food and service was great - excellent beef brisket and smoked pulled pork. Had a bit of a shock when the bill was presented £8.80 for a double vodka and coke, was not offered a cheaper house double (if there was one) when ordering meaning the bill came to £66 of which £36 was food and £30 was for 5 drinks in total. But once again could not fault the food as well as the pleasant waitress Aga who made us laugh.

Our waitress, Megan, was extremely attentive, friendly and professional. Food was beautifully cooked and went down very well with our favourite bubbles! Only negative point was the lack of Pimms... which would have been nice to enjoy on a nice warm evening.

Nice and relaxed for a Sunday evening. Short staffed but that did not deter those who were working who made a great effort and produced some great food.
