“Style lacking substance”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

Jireh House is a Georgian beauty in a gorgeous locale. Original features everywhere. The dining room is a comfortable mix of styles which is reflected in the bed rooms, which are small but nice.
We did not have an evening meal there.
I would like to give Jireh a higher mark, because the staff were helpful (and shared their personal pot of Marmite) but I had a rubbish night's sleep. The mattress (like much of the furnishings) looked new - however it seemed barely a couple of inches thick. The manager said he would look into it so you may find all fixed and in order. I hope so. They really deserve more if they fix the beds.

Room Tip: It's ALWAYS a good idea to view the room while discussing the tarif. It's surprising how fle...

This review is based on dining only.
There are many restaurants and pubs in Yarmouth offering a variety of menus. Jireh House's menu is prominently propped up outside the quaint building offering a wide range of standard and seafood dishes but it was the local lobster that caught our eye. We were advised that we did not need to book so returned later that evening for a meal.
The dining room is a cross between a private lounge and a tea room with a mixed range of tables and chairs. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table. The food and wine was of good quality and reasonably priced. The lobster was very nice.
The staff were very pleasant but they continually spoke to the diners across the room and involved all the other diners in the conversation. - This I found a little intrusive and felt that we were unable to converse privately at our own table.
When I asked for the bill I was asked openly how I was going to pay as Debit and Credit cards incurred an additional charge!
