Having spent an enjoyable Friday evening with great food at a Christmas party night at the Jester, I decided to book Christmas Day lunch. The 5 course meal was excellent and very good value for money, at half the price of most other places. The service was efficient and friendly. A faultless experience which made our Christmas Day special. Thanks...

Was attracted to Jesters by the price and the pics of the room online. On arrival though the rooms are a bit tired compared to the image you see online. The staff were very friendly and the beer was kept well. Breakfast was OK but a bit basic.

We had a pre-Christmas family lunch yesterday which was very good but I would especially like to mention the fantastic staff who were so lovely and helpful especially when my elderly uncle took a fall. They could not have done more so a really big thank you all x

Chose the Jester to stay in because of its closeness to my training course and because of the free parking and the ability to get evening meals in the pub. It did not disappoint, the staff are incredibly friendly and have been amazingly supportive all week, specially during moments where I have been really stressed. The inn is warm and...

It's OK. I guess we think it could be better. It does what it's meant to do but somehow lacks that extra something that a really good pub needs. It satisfies rather than delights which is a pity. Why not more Ashwell commuters popping in for a quick end of day drink, for example?

Stayed one night for work purposes the welcome was okay and the room spacious and well equipped in a fair standard. Plenty of hot water, friendly staff and good quality pub food available with free wifi. Very close to the train line!

stayed for one night here. Rooms were of a good standard with everything you could need. The landlord and lady were lovely and so helpful checking we had everything we needed due to having a young baby. The food was well cooked and excellent provision for gluten free diets.

I am really fond of The Jester. The staff are lovely and although I travel a great deal I have rarely found a small hotel where the restaurant staff take such pains to get a meal 'just so'. I had fish - always difficult to cook well - that was hot, fresh and delicious. I believe a new young chef...
