Attended an X mas function the food was probably the worst I have ever been served. Every course was cold, only for it to sent back to the table cold and when they did get it right it was inedible, how wrong can you get soup, turkey and Christmas pudding? When the food arrived back it had been cut up in the kitchen - to probe the temperature apparently. It wasn't a case of me being unlucky, as in mass catering you can forgive the odd mistake, this was replicated throughout the two tables my party had, and from overheard comments at the bar was a common theme throughout the event.The only OK part was the DJ. The night wasn't cheap (£35) and all the drinks were served in plastic glasses, which was also disappointing. Definitely not recommended. Give it one star (just) and that's for the DJ.

On booking our works Christmas party the organiser was rude and impatient. Were not treated as paying customers who for the last couple of years have brought about much revenue for Jocasters! Will not be using their services again. Terrible!

Catered our daughter's wedding, in Tipi style marquees in our home garden. Absolutely fabulous food with extremely helpful, efficient, and accommodating "front of house". Jocastas's have their own Event Planner, who is extremely good at her job. We all felt that Jocastas ensured that our Special Occasion was Extra Special.

Very highly recommended

The menu - even for Sunday lunch - gives names of Head Chef and Sous Chef. What a pretentious joke. Fine dining this is not.. It serves large portions of basic grub - roast meat and veg sort of thing.. The 'traditional' prawn cocktail is particularly disgusting - dollops of bottled sauce, tired salad leaves, tasteless prawns. It can't get much worse than this.
Service was helpful and pleasant. Couldn't help but notice fly deterrents on the windows and not too pleased to hear they have a fly problem in the place, originating from a local farm.
It overlooks a disused gravel pit.

The location is nice, but perhaps we went on a bad day, the service was slow
the food was cold and the portions were small and expencive. It was recomended to us
by friends, but I wont be recomending it to my friends, and it's to expencive to risk having the same experiance again.
