Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were staying at in a lodge and decided to eat at JJs one evening, having booked the same morning. We very much enjoyed our meal, the service and the ambience. The portions were large, it was served fairly quickly and was well presented and...hot. We thought the cubes on the table indicating when you would like service or to pay were a great idea. Many thanksMore

Fantastic food and service would have gave 5* but was alittle angry that our table was booked until 7.30 and at 7.10 was asked if we had finished eating could move for the next party. Would it not be better to ask if we wanted...another drink if we had another area to go to!? 6 in our group.More

Visited with friends, we had pre booked. Good atmosphere and staff friendly. Had a mixture of food between us all and which was all very tasty and arrived hot. Nice evening had. Don't agree with only card payments, cash should be excepted.

Had lunch at JJ's as a stop off in Pocklington on our journey home from the coast. What an absolute gem of a place, which can easily be missed as the bar and restaurant are upstairs and the entrance from the street is a narrow...staircase. The two young men running the place were so welcoming and helpful. Now, the food, outstanding , fresh, hot, perfectly cooked. Hearty pie with home made mash, tapas , burgers, kebab. Good beer as well. We will definitely be back , highly recommend for sure.More

This was for Allerthorpe. We were a party of 43 and we could not fault it. Service: as always excellennt. They have a cube on the table and if you trequire assistancee you press it and it lights up. - excellent idea. FOOD: as always...it was excellent. Hot, tasty and plenty. We had preordered due to the size of our party and we all got served within an acceptable time period. It was cooked fresh so obviously some had finished before others were served . We have eaten her previously a couple of times with another couple and always excellent.More

I cannot recommend JJ’s Pocklington highly enough! The cocktails are the star of the show, the Bartenders really know their stuff, even if you ask for something totally random or off menu. They also serve the best range of beers in town, and have something...for everybody. I’ve eaten here a few times and am never disappointed. The staff are so attentive and the food is delicious, particularly the pork belly bites! The atmosphere is great, casual and fun. A great place for lunch, dinner or evening drinks. Thanks CJ, Ross and chef for always catering to my needs and being ever so welcoming every time I visit.More

God awful! Regular customer at the allerthorpe restaurant and love it there, decided to go to Pocklington and what a mistake that was; -Poor service -Cold chips, dry schnitzel, beef in the burnt Lasagne was more mush than proper beef mince. -Fly on rim of...glass and they didn't even notice, until i pointed out at table. -Hardly eaten food and nobody even questioned if everything was ok! - 2 men at the bar were so intoxicated he couldn't even string a sentence together, was super annoying and intimidating and should not have been in there let alone being served more alcohol!! Needless to say we quickly had to find a member of staff to settle the bill. Hot footed it to Allerthorpe on the way Home for a friendly welcoming service, dessert and drink as we were Hank Marvin! We also told the staff at Allerthorpe about the diabolical meal and service we had just experienced at a restaurant that wasnt even slightly busy.More

As usual , excellent service from CJ and team. A very busy Saturday early evening ,it was full to capacity but everything was “ spot on “. We had drinks and dinner and it was so good . If you are really hungry the chicken...kebabs will fill you up . Two of us had them and struggled to eat all that was on the plate. Also the Cajun chicken on the specials board was gorgeous. JJs at Allerthorpe does a brilliant breakfast buffet on Saturday and Sunday mornings and both Allerthorpe and Pocklington does the best Sunday lunch in the area. 5 star. Highly recommended.More

Tourist in the area, recommended JJ’s , would not have found this place without asking the locals! Amazing service, food unreal, so tasty, lovely setting. Perfect customer service. Would highly recommend! Shame we live to far away! This places needs more signage (I did speak...to Ross about this) or you will miss it! Thanks Ross, Charlie and chef Layek! Flavours to die for. Tapas was a total winner! Empty plates and satisfied tummy’s.More

There was a great ambiance and we were so happy to book in advance to get in! Staff were very...helpful and nothing too much trouble. Great menu with many choices for everyone!
