My first time back since the Jade Fountain had new owners. I was really impressed with the food and service, particularly the lady who served us. I highly recommend the Chilli Beef, best I've tasted in a long while - i will be back for more.

After reading some reviews on TripAdvisor, I was slightly concerned about going back to the Jade, but as we had some gift vouchers we booked to go last week and were all really pleased with both the food and the service. We were very well looked after, the food was piping hot and tasted delicious. We all found it to... More

On our return visit to the Jade we found the food had improved 100% on the last time . Quicker service food hot and very tasty must have a new Chef or got their act together well done

We went here after hearing about new owners and we were expecting good things. I was excited, so we arrived, the room felt cold and the service very unwelcoming. Then we got our food which was cold and the bill came in at £100 for 4 with only 3 drinks. Would really not recommend.

I agree this certainly isn't what it used to be but not as bad as people are making out. When we arrived I was all wrapped up expecting it to be freezing but it was fine. It never was the best looking restaurant ! I found the service more friendly than when Mike was there don't forget there were a... More

At the end of a working week people want to relax, feel comfortable, chat with friends/family and eat decent food. That's how you grow a restaurant - make it a place people look forward to going to. Nobody is going to feel comfortable and relaxed in a freezing cold room. I know it saves money when the heating is turned... More

The room was cold and unwelcoming. Service was average but the food was cold even with the heating plates. This is not a place I'll be hurrying back to.

We booked a table to celebrate new year eating at lunchtime. On arrival we was greeted and shown to our table . As there was 6 of us we were given the round table furthest from the bar . After sitting down we were asked which drinks we wanted and given the menus . The restaurant was empty at the... More

takeaway was ok but lacking the finesse that I was use to, hopefully just finding their feet since taking over the business, but it will need to do so quickly as there are other as good takeaways in the village. I will give it another go, and hope the ribs next time will be better. They put them in a... More

We visited as a family for our New Year's Eve celebration but were very disappointed with the service we received. The food was good but we waited over an hour for our starters, another 45 minutes for duck and asked 4 times for drinks which we never received! We saw people leaving before they were even seated as they were... More
