I'm not one for writing stories but I am passionate about doing the right thing in life, trying my best and giving 100%.

My name is David Scott the owner of JJs Bar & Kitchen www.simplyjjs.com Winner 2017/2018 Best Bar & Restaurant Yorkshire. 

My father was in the forces so as a child we moved every 2 years, Germany, UK & lucky enough to live in Hong Kong.

Following the footsteps of my father I also joined the British Army as a Royal Engineer and proudly served across the globe, hence the cheesy pics below ! Cut a long story short and certainly no war stories ;-) followed by a subsequent stint with the Police Service and then back to the tools as an engineer. I finally took the BIG step leaving uniform and starting my own business, JJs was formed in Pocklington.

After 10 years we are still here ! Trying our best and giving 100%

Phew we made it!! ..... Now I have 2 boys James and Jack hence the name JJs

So here we are folk's, I hope you enjoy your stay at JJs Lodges and please visit my restaurants and say hello.
