As an eating experience we could not fault the freshness of the food, staff and especially the hard working bbq chef who was very helpful. We would 100% recommend you give it a try, we will certainly be back. The only down side is that the tables are very close together and we felt a little too close to others.... More

It was our fourth trip to Jenko's, and before, it has always been fantastic. However, we were let down by the service and the desserts this time. We've always saved room for the rather expensive desserts because they've always been delicious. Last night, they were disappointing. What had been the best sticky toffee sponge I'd ever had was served with... More

Well, this is the most recent in a reasonably long line of visits and this time was for a birthday treat. Again, the food was great but, once again, the drinks service was poor - our first order arrived approximately ½ hour after we placed it. However, the staff are all very friendly and were apologetic about the long wait... More

Jenkos managed to fit us in even though they were busy. Nice concept, you pick the food raw, plus herbs, spices and sauce then it is cooked on a hot plate for you. Recommend you follow some of their guides as your own mixtures can be interesting! Food good and you can go up as many times as you want.

very different way of eating out but very much enjoyed it. you can insure that you have just what you want with a large range of veg and meats. Will be returning, my only recommendation would be a little improvement on your cocktails.

What a hidden gem! Hidden at back of the Compasses pub, we walked through the funky cosy bar and we're greeted by the staff who were really welcoming. Hit with the smell of spices it smelt amazing! The log cabin was magical, like something I've seen in the French alps. The food was delicious, picking it all you self and... More

This place has everything. There's a cosy bar with comfortable high back chairs, an open fire, top notch ales and incredibly friendly staff to welcome you, then there is the warm log cabin to enjoy as much food as you like. You get to choose all of your own ingredients (meat, fish, veg) and have it cooked in front of... More
