Went to TJ's after a gap of a year - why did I leave it so long? Food was excellent, staff really friendly, very difficult to fault. We all had starters and mains and all were excellent. I will be back soon, weeks not months!...More

When we visited, the menu was clearly annotated with Gluten Free, vegan options etc. I seem to remember seeing quite a few Gluten free options so I think either give them a call or check out the menu online but they have... More

Summer holidays start on Monday. Best thing to do is to phone TJ's and ask them.

We pride ourselves on having a unique combination of menus; with our Tapas style menu consisting of over 25 smaller portion dishes that can be ordered individually as a starter or in multiples to provide a complete meal - a very social and interactive style of dining, promoting lively debate between couples, families or groups until a compromise is reached concluding everyones preferences. This runs alongside our 'Chefs One Plates Menu', vastly different in content, these main courses always including a succulent Steak. These frequently changing dishes focus on our chef's culinary and artistic skills creating thoughtfully flavoured and beautifully presented meals. Lovingly prepared to order, using, as often as possible locally sourced fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.
