My Essex January Foodie Month

With January tending to be a quiet month I decided to stick to my home county of Essex and was delighted to add two new restaurants to the list. We started in Upminster near my hometown of Hornchurch at the Jobbers Rest for Sunday Lunch and the highlight was not a traditional roast but the Coq au Vin which is for Two people or more and I have to say it was amazing a real French treat

The following week took us to a New place The Hoop in Stock in Ingatestone and definitely somewhere I would recommend with great pub food , real ales and a friendly atmosphere it’s just what you want

This led us to our next place and an absolute pleasure it was with a visit to Restaurant Richard Wilkins in Buckhurst Hill. With a young chef producing excellent modern European Cuisine. So if you like Fine Dining with good wine then this place is for you

Then of course with their return from holidays we had to visit Haywards and yes fantastic as always sampling dishes from the New Lunch Menu

So yes it’s certainly been a great first month of the year and look forward to trying more restaurants in Essex
