SquareMeal Review of Jamies Minories

Vibrant abstract art adds a little decorative zip to the characteristic pale green colour scheme at this bright Jamies on the City’s eastern fringe, where vast windows offer grandstand views of the passing scene. At lunchtime the boards, sandwiches & salads are supplemented by substantial mains spanning everything from chicken with couscous & tzatziki to a spicy bean burger in a sourdough bun, served with chunky chips & coleslaw; the evening menu is shorter, dispensing with sandwiches but retaining a few hot items alongside lighter fare. Lubrication comes in the shape of a long & admirably clear wine list, which is set out by grape variety & style; expect a few esoteric names alongside the more familiar Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Cabernet Sauvignon. Jamies continues to champion good rosé, too.

I have not been here for a while and enjoyed the experience. The food selection was ideal for a casual lunch and was well cooked. The restaurant was busy but service was good. Prices are reasonable, as is the wine variety and pricing.

Team evening planned, booked but cancelled three times due to problems with team absences, but Jamies have such good communication I was able to let them know with my apologies and re booked, which happened again. BUT, we finally had our team evening drinks/ nibbles the other evening and was amazing. To start with I can only but be amazed by the communication with Jamies, they were very quick to respond (mostly on the same day) and also made me feel very welcome and knowledgeable about what was on offer. Jamies supplied me with full information about their happy hour and their “Party Platters”, which was full in depth explaining what each platter would contain (which was great for certain food choice eg Veggie/allergies). In the end, we went for the Jamies Club platter which was mixed sandwiches, (seemed the best to accommodate 20 different people). They then went on to inform me that this platter will be complimentary as we are a group greater than 10, this was a real bonus. Once at Jamies, we ordered a few more sharing plates/nibbles for the team to share, which really went down well and were very tasty. Taking a good amount of time to prepare and present, really spread the evening out, but quick enough for when people were peckish. Both of which catered for Veggie and normal foods. The team complemented me on the booking, as even though Jamies can be a busy place, we were all able to chat and have our own space. I am very pleased with the evening, Amazing value for Money! **WOULD LOVE TO GIVE FULL STARS FOR EVERYTHING, BUT I WANT TO PLAY IT FAIR. I ALREADY STATED ON OTHER RESTRUANTS THAT NONE CAN BE 100% PERFECT. Though Jamies is really getting close!!!**

Jamies Minories is a straightforrward place. It's about drinking and having good time. Everything else: very decent food (for instance, lamb tagine), largish wine list (including a fair selection of New World wines), low prices (the self-same tagine was 12 pounds) and fast, friendly service are means to an end. So, the three of us did enjoy ourselves. So will you, I'm sure.
