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.

Every body was fantastic, Josh greeted us, Amy with service, Jade with the drinks, Bobbylicious and Alina making the outstanding food. The food was brilliant, all 4 of us enjoyed both starters and mains. The best food out we've enjoyed in a long time. Thanks...to all 5 of the Captain Jack's Crew who served us. Thanks to all of you.More

Josh was a great host. He was very attentive, was such great spirit and always there if we needed anything. I would highly recommend going. Lots of great food and lovely drinks.

The staff were really lovely and welcoming. Plenty of gluten free options to choose from. Really good quality and tasty food! We had the Nachos fully loaded to start and they were delicious. I had the duck which was cooked beautifully and my partner has...the signature ribs which were fab. Looking forward to coming back again!More

Went in for a date night. We were seated quickly and had our drinks shortly after. I ordered the stuffed jalapenos costing £7.95 and when I got it I was quite disappointed to be honest. There was only 4 of them on the plate and...they were very small and there was a tiny bit of salad in the middle of the plate. The only saving grace was the burger that I had. It was quite good. As for the cocktails we had afterwards, well they were just awful. I ordered the Pina Colada which just tasted like coconut juice. No taste of any alcohol at all. My partner ordered the Mojito which I tried and nearly spat it out because it was so bad. It wasn't made correctly by someone who claimed to be very good at making cocktails. Ended up costing us £92 for 2 pints each, 2 starters, 2 mains and the cocktails. Only a couple of weeks before we went to Miller & Carter, spent £10 LESS, had the same sort of things and had a much better experience. We won't be going back again.More

Had a lovely meal here. Staff were great with my little un. Moved us to the ‘jail table’ and brought a sheet and pencils for my son. Food was nice and reasonably priced.

Great find in the middle of town! We went as a group of 13 and had a great time. The food choice was amazing and my god the portion sizes are enormous! We practically rolled out of there. Everyone was really happy and the cocktails...were 15/10! If you get a chance to go, you wont be disappointed.More

Went to Cactus Jacks with my workmates, for our Christmas night out. We were a large party, 11 or 12 of us. Drinks orders done first, and delivered in a timely manner. Food orders done, and arrived in good time. Food was excellent, I had...the Chicken and Ribs. Would definitely recommend and return.More

This place was average. Food was cold waiting up to 1 hour and 45 for 2 T bone stakes now I’m no chef but that is outrageous. And the staff not to mention how I was treated was disgusting. A blonde girl who served us...Walked past in a hurry swearing and shouting and even had to go to the bar to ask for more drinks. Wouldn’t recommendMore

Not sure if it was just an off-day for them, as they have really good reviews usually but when me and my friend went we had the enchiladas and it was poor, it felt like we was chewing on a leather boot. The chips, salad...and drinks were amazing. When we complained over it we was basically called liars.More

Tried here for the first time as something a bit different for the kids. Upon arriving we was greeted by a friendly waitress and showed to our jail cell! The food came out pretty quick & I couldn’t fault any of it. Delicious, hot &...decent portions! The only negative I could find is there isnt a drinks menu for you to look at so we had no idea what was available/prices etc - not sure why Will definitely return though!More

'Bottomless Brunch' 30 quid for drinks but not bottomless food like every other establishment offering Bottomless. You get 3 starters between you and thats it for 90mins. When you add up what you eat its less than 30quid so if you dont drink alot definitely...a mistake!!! Really disappointed as this place has been a favourite a long time and the food is beautiful but this is false advertising. Bottomless brunch is meant to be all you can eat and drink in 90mins. We had 3 starters to share and that was game over. Not worth the money at all and spoilt a 40th birthday celebration.More
