We had a three course meal here which came to £30 per head including tip. The food was very well thought out and presented with a friendly service. We felt it was great value for money and would definitely recommend visiting.

You won't be disappointed. Second visit. Staff brilliant. Best Sauvignon blanc and reasonably priced compared to other local places. Had a sharing fish starter. Was great followed by lamb. Will definitely be returning.

We LOVE visiting Jackson’s when we’re in the lakes. We always have the table d’hôte menu which has a good choice at a fixed price and never fails to impress us. The food is creative but not too fancy with good portion sizes. Lovely wines...More
