    Sit on the balcony when the sun is out for a lovely riverside view. The pork chop with apple slaw & crackling is to die for! Try it!x 😊

    Yummy food, not cheap but it is nicer than somewhere like Bella Italia. Good veggie options, nice furniture, and friendly staff

    Great value, good specials and professional waiting staff. Popped in for a quick bite to eat before shopping and was not disappointed. I liked the fresh breads.

    The lemon mascarpone cheesecake was one of the best I've ever had. Gnocchi was also really good. Nice staff!

    Good service and food. Our party was well looked after. However book ahead as the restaurant gets VERY busy.

    Not a lot of people know this: you can now book for any size any time. Go online and see! Except fewer than 6 people on Fri/Sat night.

    You have to pick the right dish here the Meat Antipasti Plank is one of the best dishes.

    Try Puttanesca Monnachele. They will make veggie version by taking anchovies out.

    Greasy, strange tasting Pork Belly. This is my second Jamie's Italian, Oxford was the first, and I am not impressed by either.

    The best olives really are the best olives you'll ever eat.

    Didn't like the steak, since asked for a medium, got rare. The pasta with shrimps was ok. Expectations for this place were high, so got disappointed. On the other hand, appetizers were delicious.

    Staff are quick but steer clear of the porchetter, mine was dry and tough but so greasy it left a coating in my mouth and the sauce and seasoning tasted of chemicals.

    Great overall but avoid the walnut tart for pudding as it's boring compared to the other options.

    I expected it much much better.I am very very disappointed!Mediocre food and too expensive for what it offers.Example: french fries 3.00pounds, the same french fries with rosemary 3.85! unacceptable!

    Try and avoid Christmas Eve, they don 't seem to expect people to come in at lunchtime. No bread, no lamb, they have water though!

    The worst Jamie's I've been to. We were a group of 6 and only two people like their food. Pasta tastes like it's been microwaved.

    Found the prices expensive for the portion sizes and also a distinct lack of prawns in my prawn linguini. Disappointing...
