    Always love JD's. This time we tried the pre-theatre menu and it was really good. Some simple choice, great service and very friendly staff. The à la carte menu has undergone an change since our last visit and has been trimmed down but the classics that JD's are known for are still there. The St. Louis ribs are just out of this world as is the brisket. So long as Dan is always smiling, the kitchen staff are culinary geniuses and the atmosphere is rocking we'll continue to come back. Absolutely everyone at JD's Grill wants you to have a great time and enjoy your food and beverages. They truely are the best.

    We had the lunch menu, two courses for £10. Starters were delicious creamy garlic mushrooms and loads of spicy buffalo wings. Main courses were a gluten free burger with cheese and sliders with one plain, one with pulled pork and one with brisket in lovely brioche buns, all served with fries. The burgers were superb, juicy and meaty. So full we passed on desserts! The service was attentive, great background music, a great lunch in general.

    The staff were helpful and polite with good customer service. The decoration is interesting and welcoming. The food was at best over cooked not much of it and the chicken was dry it tasted like it had been kept warm all day the steak was tough. Last time we came the food was delicious and we couldn't finish what was on our plates. This time we all ate the food and went to the supermarket on the way home for dessert. They had run out of rose wine and to be honest I definitely think twice about going back. The food has gone from being outstanding to poor., we went at 6pm on a Monday evening and there was only one other table booked. The last time we went it was full.

    The restaurant lacked any atmosphere, it was almost empty. Some of us ordered off the 2 course set menu and the staff bought out the bill without bringing out the desserts.

    We went because of an online offer saying any burger and drink for £10 but when we got there this deal was only on certain burgers. Overall thought the menu was overpriced.

    Lovely well cooked food. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Nice vibe. Toilets seem a bit run down sort of thing but they were reasonably clean so im not that bothered!

    lovely meal. fab value with the Facebook offer. highly reccomend. maybe a chicken choice for those who don't eat red meat would be a nice addition. falafel burger was good but I'd not go often just based on fact I wouldn't have much variation. all the near eaters in the party loved theirs.
