Being a gold member means you get extra treats..... sometimes. If you don't remind the staff you don't seem to get them. It was my birthday so I asked to redeem my bottle of prosecco. Very nice, thank you Jamie. This meant however we did not get the free glass of prosecco that gold members get in Feb.... I know... More

After a good gym work out and before a hard day shopping both me and my son choose Jamie's Italian for lunch. We arrived at 12pm. And the restaurant wasn't busy. But 20 minutes later it was packed.

We chose Jamie's on this occasion as the children's menu looked really nice. The service was very friendly if a little slow. The children loved the visual gizmos for the menus. The Fritos misto, oxtail tagliatelle, bruschetta, salad and chicken burger were all declared excellent by the adults but the children's burgers were hardly eaten as the lemony yogurt dressing...

I took my daughter for a light lunch today whilst shopping. We were seated at a table but had to wait 15 mins before anyone came to see us. Finally our order was taken and food came pretty promptly. After eating we had to wait quite sometime to get anyone's attention to get the bill and to pay too.

Hello, thanks for the feedback. Sorry to hear that you felt the service was a little slow on your visit. As i'm sure you can appreciate we can get very busy, particularly during half term! However, this is not an excuse and I will be asking the manager on duty and all the staff working why this was the case... More

Amazing food in relaxed surroundings which my two small girls are every last crumb of their spaghetti meatballs and chocolate brownie. Oxtail ragu tagliatelle was delicious too and all at a price almost unbelievable.

We were served on the 19th February by Alex who was really polite, sweet and even got one of the chefs Danny to come out and tell my mum the amazing apple sauce recipe. Made her day as it was the best thing we've ever tasted. Couldn't of asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Really good service with well cooked and typically JOI meals. Staff were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. JO Gold card is worth taking out as were given free glasses of Preseco and nibbles. Pasta dishes are excellent recommend Spaghetti with Crabmeat, which comes with chilli in the sauce.

Great informal service in a busy restaurant. We were a group of six, so 12.5% service was automatically added. Food was good, although the menu seemed more complicated than necessary
