The Jack Ketch is a narrow, simple place that gives visitors a view of Conway working in its modest kitchen as soon as they enter. There’s a wee bar of just a few seats, and beside it the grey-blue walled dining area with its wood banquette along one wall. There are some small paintings on the walls. I didn’t look too closely, but the impression I got was that fortunately, the ambience did not nod overly to the eatery’s notorious namesake — an English executioner of the 1600s who, as the stories go, was too incompetent to dispatch his victims quickly and made a gory, painful mess of things.
