Maybe it was just us. I didn’t like how we were spoken to. ‘Stand there’. ‘Wait’. ‘Hurry up’. As someone who has worked through the pandemic and has taken every precaution necessary I didn’t appreciate a jumped up supervisor speaking to us like this. Fair enough If there’s rules but there’s a way to speak to people. Only stayed for one. I’m not a child.

We had a table for two hours, then spotted another free one - the JM staff managed to accommodate us so we could stay and then found another table after the time ran out on that. Despite being outside, the staff managed to be lovely, polite and attentive and we were always topped up with food and drinks. Had a wonderful long awaited catch up with friends after this third lockdown and JM made a wonderful setting.

Second visit in 2 weeks and both times the service and food has been fantastic. Staff were very attentive and couldn’t do enough. We were sat in a corner and my partner said we were going to be forgotten about but we definitely weren’t.

Service was excellent and drinks lovely. There was no waiting time from being seated to ordering drinks which is important.

We have been a regular for a long time and was hoping the food customer service and ambiance had not changed now it’s re-opened. Just exactly the same friendly and welcoming staff.
