Was surprised to receive such poor customer service, but I've since heard it's a common theme in Jacks. Barstaff unbelievably rude and obnoxious - plenty nicer bars in the area where you and go and be welcomed in a much friendlier way

Over-priced. Noisy. Big TV to show the sport like some naff Wetherspoons bar. Definitely a pub catering for the men rather than the women. Bar staff are friendly. Ok for a drink or two after work but really nothing special.More
