Allergens

“At Starvin’ Jacks, we take the safety of our customers as our prime responsibility. We work to Food Standards Agency guidance and ensure all our staff are educated about food allergens and follow proper procedures to keep allergens separate from other food stuffs. We label all our buffets to ensure customers are aware of the allergens contained in our food. Please ensure you always advise us of any guests with specific dietary requirements including allergens prior to placing any order. Unfortunately we are unable to cater for guests with nut allergies.
