The food is great, my wife enjoyed her meal, i thought my meal was ok, but that is only down to my choice and not the food itself. The service was as you would expect for a high profile restaurant.

I'm always fair and honest with my reviews, but this was so disappointing I'm amazed someone would put their name to this restaurant. Seated promptly asked for a beer off the menu which they hadn't got I was recommended a popular beer on draft , totally tasteless.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It's disheartening to see that you thought everything was tasteless, our steaks are marinated and seasoned and the cheesecake has amaretti biscuit in the base with rich white chocolate so to see that they were bland is disappointing indeed. Our draught lager is a beer called 'Curious' from Chapel... More

Thanks for the comments. I'm sorry to see that you were not allowed to sit where you wanted. Yes, our waiters do have specific sections within the restaurant, this is to prevent our staff having too many tables at a time so we can deliver the fantastic service our guests rightfully expect, but we are usually accommodating to guests requests,...

Thought we'd give this a try as it was a Jamie Oliver restaurant and we were staying at the hotel next door. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Just booked in half an hour before dining to reserve a table and no problem. Very accommodating. The food was a very reasonable price and tasted good. Service was swift and friendly. Great ambience, split into little sections rather than an open restaurant and this added to the atmosphere.

Lamb ragu special superb, Prawn linguine very tasty but contained very little langoustine Three in our party had the crab spaghetti, very disappointing, hardly any crab at all and too much chilli; perhaps to disguise this deceit. Shame, as we had lovely meals at Jamie's in London and Guildford. Come on, don't stint on the key ingredient!

Hello, thank you for the comments. It's great to see you enjoyed the ragu, but I apologise if you felt the crab spaghetti's were lacking in crab. The majority of the crab in the dish gets tossed through with the spaghetti, however you should still have a good amount on top. We would have been more than happy to replace... More

Everytime we go to a turtle bay eatery the food is excellent, well priced and a decent portion. I suggest the manager of this jamies goes and eats at one to see how its done properly. Then she can comment on why this place is too expensive with tiny portions and iffy service. I will never eat at this place... More
