Primarily a transport cafe used by lorry drivers. However it is much more as it welcomes all guests warmly with a friendly smile and a wide variety of well cooked food. Comfortable seating including outside seating area. Plenty of parking During the summer one a month they host a classic car meeting and on another day a bike meeting. Well... More

On a golf weekend 11 golfers met at the Jacks Hill for a starter breakfast. Did not let us down. Great Full English Breakfast. Just right before our society day away. Looking forward to a return visit next year.

If you have a motorbike you already know this place - if you don't you still need to get to know it. Good honest no nonsense food in a relaxed cafe style environment with heritage and character. Friendly and engaging. Expect bikers, expect truckers, expect business men - they know what they like. It's a place to visit in its... More

Unfortunately it's just a basic 'greasy spoon' It was ok for a quick pit stop but given the chance In Doubt I'd return. Cleanliness was ok but again wasn't of a high standard.
