Fantastic food, excellent cocktails and friendly staff all added up to a really enjoyable experience. There's not a huge choice of dishes to choose from but I'd far rather have a somewhat limited menu that is cooked and presented with excellence (which this was) than a large menu resulting in mediocre food. Just one tip for the staff if you don't mind - cast your eyes over the tables regularly as it was difficult to attract attention when we wanted something. That nitpicking aside we were really, really pleased with our meal and will definitely be coming back.

All the food we ate was excellent- beautifully presented. Our compliments to the chef. Great service from Isaac - many thanks. Think their business would be enhanced with addition of a dessert menu. Plus also to have coffee etc. Isaac advised a dessert menu was being developed. We will be going back. We wish Jack & Isaac and all involved every success with this business.

Such a warm welcome from Jack and the team. Great decor, modern with an industrial feel and some quirky twists including a great feature photo of Jack’s adorable dogs. Table distance is appropriate to not feel squashed and the furniture echoing the feel of the decor.
Menu choice was pleasing without being overwhelming and the food is high quality, well cooked and presented - totally delicious. Fab cocktails - wow. Book it, be pleasantly surprised with what lies behind the glass door on a row of shops! We loved the personal approach and we’ll deffo be back. Spot on.

Very small portions of food for price expected a decent size portion of chips to share between 2 people for the price
Staff very friendly

I recommend this restaurant, the drinks were beautiful to look at and delicious and the staff were very friendly. I understand this is a newly opened restaurant so there's a couple things that may need a bit of work. For instance, the food was good but could be a bit more polished, e.g. Sauteed chorizo could have been cooked more for a thicker sauce, chips could do with some seasoning. Also, the grime music and change in genres was a bit jarring for a restaurant, could maybe do with a solid playlist to make the experience more fluid and laid back.
Overall, I still recommend it, just has a few learning curves for a newly opened restaurant.

Whilst the outside space is nice, you need to walk all the way around the houses to get in there rather than walking through the restaurant.
The waitress that took our cocktail order, didn’t know anything about how the cocktails were made / what was in them.
The cocktails where syrupy and sickly.
Wouldn’t rush back!

A breath of fresh air in a council estate, an unpretentious gem. The owner has vision and creativity which shines through giving room for conversation and amidst good food and cocktails at an affordable price.
