Sorry but JoJo’s will be closed on New Year’s eve for a private function.
JoJo’s Coffee Shop will also close on the dates noted above.
We will re-open on the evening of Friday 3 January 2014 (though the Coffee Shop will open at 9am as usual).
For dates not noted above, we will be open as normal – our opening days and times can be found here.
We would also like to point out our menu will not include roast turkey or any trimmings on the run-up to Christmas. We will be serving our normal eclectic menu with some seasonal twists.
Finally… thank you so much for all your custom throughout 2013. It really is appreciated!

- Vouchers are valid for x1 year from the date of purchase. An expiry date will be shown on your voucher.

We have had a few requests asking if it is OK to bring in birthday cakes as part of a celebratory meal at JoJo’s. Our official (!) policy is that we do ask you to arrange this with us when you make your booking. We do reserve the right to make a charge of £15.00 for this service – this helps cover the cost of providing plates for the cake, washing-up and so-forth.
Please don’t turn up with a cake on the day of the meal, generally us restaurant folk don’t encourage people to bring their own food into our establishments (after all that is our job to provide you with some great cooking) – so we do like to agree in advance and that way everyone is happy. Thank you.

When we first opened JoJo’s we did not have an alcohol licence so it was a BYO (bring-your-own) restaurant and we made a corkage charge to cover the cost of providing glasses, washing them up, recycling the empty bottles and so forth.
Now a few years on, we got our act together, filled in the forms, submitted the paperwork and JoJo’s now has a licence for alcohol. We stock a range of quality wines that are sold by the bottle (white, red, rosé, prosecco and champagne) and some are available by the glass. We also have a variety of bottled beers, lager and cider.
Of course we also provide freshly made coffees, teas, Fentimens ‘real’ fizzy drinks and a selection of chilled fruit, soft drinks and bottled water are also available.
You may still bring-your-own wine (corkage is £3.00 per bottle) or sparkling wine, prosecco or champagne (corkage is £5.00 per bottle). Please don’t use Tesco as we will charge you £6.00 corkage – thank you.
Our BYO policy does not include soft drinks, beer, lager, cider or bottles of spirits etc so please do not bring these into the restaurant – thank you. If in doubt, please ask exactly what you can bring when you make a reservation.
Unfortunately there have been instances of customers being ‘over enthusiastic’ in the amount of alcohol they brought into the restaurant and consumed. We are a friendly local restaurant, and not a nightclub in Kavos, which is why we have had to update our policy. We have tried our utmost to source and provide quality wines you can enjoy with your meal with us and we promise to keep our pricing as competitive as possible.
