Our Story

Who are we?

Jamps is proud to be a family run business. We are named after our four partners made of the two couples James and Anne, and Maxine and Paul. Brothers Paul and James are well known in the local community as previously managing a large oriental restaurant for many years. With the vision of being owners, they have used their knowledge and experience to create a unique and contemporary Chinese restaurant that moves away from the norm.



The four partners revitalised the original Red Lion restaurant of old into something clean, modern and frankly fabulous. The new business opened just before Christmas 2011 and became a recognised local gem in its own right. It quickly proved itself to be a venue of great service, wonderful food and a cool yet cosy atmosphere. Customers were amazed to see the transformation, and welcomed a new twist in the traditional Chinese dining experience.


Jamps has grown in its reputation since opening. New customers soon become regulars, and locals now enjoy our new takeaway delivery service. We have a sophisticated wine bar downstairs for diners to enjoy before their meal, or just to enjoy a drink socially.

The restaurant is also a great venue for functions. We have hosted christenings, birthdays and anniversaries, carrying on our focus of friends and family enjoying good food in a friendly atmosphere. Our family’s values around high standards of food, service, and adding a personal touch are what we are all about.

Book now and enjoy the Jamps experience, we look forward to seeing you!
