Once again we find ourselves in a position where we are forced to close our doors from 16th December. We'd like to say thank you to all those who have joined us over the festive period, it's been a pleasure. We put the utmost effort into reopening our doors to ensure that we met all government guidelines when doing so. Please take a look below at the safety measures that will be in place for when things get back to normal.
For now, it’s a short goodbye but we’ll be back soon to welcome you into our venues. Our Thai food will be back on you tables and your glasses will again be full once again. In the meantime ensure you, your family and friends stay safe and when the time comes, we’ll be here. If we don't see you before, have a fantastic Christmas and a happy New Year.
Your safety and that of our staff is always the top priority so we've carried out risk assessments on all sites in preparation for opening which you can find links to below. We've re-trained our staff and arranged our service spaces to meet Government guidelines so that we all remain safe. Not only this but we have enhanced our cleaning and hand-washing schedules to make sure hygiene standards are at their highest. Our kitchen staff will be provided with appropriate PPE and our floor staff are able to access PPE and use it at their discretion.
Here are a few changes you can expect from your next visit with us...
Jack’s Bar and Kitchen is the brainchild of Ryan and John McElhinney. We are located at 96 Isabella Street (behind Southwark Tube) SE1 8DD. The original Jack’s was opened in Ireland in 1970 by their father Jack (now sunning himself in Spain) so the boys decided to pay tribute to their father by re-opening the original almost forty years on. Jack's is a bar for birthdays, catching up with friends, lunch on our patio in the sunshine, craft beer, cocktails and delicious Thai food.
We cater for many events including wedding receptions so enquire now by emailing
Our authentic Thai food "Johnny Rice" is served everyday at our sister bar The Ring.
