Jobbers Rest

A great way to start the New Year was to visit one of my favourite local places from last year and as is turned out the food & service was equally as good as our previous visits . This place really is a credit to the county with a great local feel and a Restaurant that serves everything from amazing French Cuisine to a Classic English Roast Dinner. We started our lunch this time with a drink at the bar where there is a good selection ales some being local brews . We were then escorted to our table which was not in the restaurant itself but in the bar food area. We didn’t say anything as the bar area was quiet and we thought it might be a nice change although we did feel we could have been told about this prior to being seated plus it wasn’t as if I booked last minute but this turned out to be the only slight downfall to our lunch as the bar are became popular and quite noisy although not for our entire time that we were there something you wouldn’t notice if seated in the restaurant itself. Anyway the food & service more than made up for it as we tried dishes that we had not tasted before . We started with French Onion Soup & Crispy Beef with a Soy & Citrus Glaze both courses delicious



We then decided to have Coq Au Vin which is for Two or more people and I have to say it was amazing with Guinea Fowl ,Root Vegetables,Pasta in Red Wine it would quite easily serve four people with a couple of sides as it is a very hearty dish but so tasty and perfectly cooked it’s a dish you should try at least once and I would also pair this with one of the fabulous Red Wines from a excellent quality wine list



We did have a bit of a rest after our main because although amazing as I said very hearty but anyway you can’t leave without having dessert so we had a selection of Sorbets and a delightful Chocolate Torte with vanilla ice cream



This rounded of another great and well worth visit to the Jobbers Rest and even despite the very slight disappointment of not being in the restaurant it ruin our experience and was still a pleasure to enjoy this fantastic food . The people of Essex should definitely put this place on there list as it’s one of the best places to dine in the county
