Great place to eat at. Table in Conservatory area was such a great position - very private, no loud music, and the view around outside was very good. The old era decorations in the Cafe area well worth a visit, so interesting.
Service wonderful, food wonderful, so glad we found Jimmys on First Table. Recommend to all.

Lovely restaurant with a large menu to choose from. We had the lamb with a twist and the venison. Both were delicious, although slightly overcooked. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and would recommend a visit

Amazing food, lovely place. the bar staff service was amazing. Our waitress, needs basic customer service. We had to ask what the fish was, there were specials that we were never told about. She was disinterested, which is a shame as the place rating should be a 10!

Fantastic food all four of us and had no complaints. Ordered lamb,pork, chicken and salmon all were devoured. Apple coleslaw on the side was the best I have ever had. I don't like salmon but the crisp skin on that even had me thinking yum
Will be heading back again

Three of us dined and all enjoyed our meals. One had warm lamb salad which she could not fault and really enjoyed, myself and my wife had baked blue cod - chef's special which was cooked perfectly. My wife does not eat mushrooms which was an ingredient in the sauce with this, but the chef obliged by substituting it with home made tartare sauce which was lovely. Overall the evening was very enjoyable and we enjoyed our drinks in the bar before hand. We will definitely return again. Many thanks.

Being a Monday we were in the courtyard as opposed to the restaurant which was fine as it has a very interesting decor. Lots to look at.
Very generous food servings so don't over order. Friendly staff.
We will go again
