Yesterday 24 customers sat down to a three course lunch at Jessop's new restaurant above the deli. Customers need not be worried about the stairs because there is stair-lift if required. This is only the fourth Sunday of opening and already it's a full house, with some customers already returning for seconds. You need not be disappointed if you can't get a table, however, because there is a takeaway option, and if you pre-book and ask, there is even the possibility of getting it delivered.
With Jessop's reputation for its Deli and lunchtime sandwiches, you would expect a quality approach to the restaurant. Michael Jessop said "everything is home-made – you will not find a microwave here" For Sunday lunch there will always be a roast meat £11.95 or fish £10.95 with starters £4.95 to £5.50 and puddings at £5.00, or the option of cheese at £6.00.
The restaurant will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays but from Wednesday to Saturday there will, in addition to breakfast, be single dish hot dish lunches such as Hotpot, Sausage and Mash, Steak and Ale Pie, and Fish Pie. Don't fancy any of these, then you can request other things such as an omelette or salad.
All of this is served in one of the rooms surrounded by shelves of wine and Michael Jessop said "already one of the benefits of the new restaurant has been an increase in general wine sales because for the first time our restaurant customers are seeing the wine that is available for sale"
Ed – Having a range of eateries from our famous fish and chip shop, through our pubs, to our local restaurants, is of great importance for the vibrancy of Tarvin, and the opportunity for members our community to gather together, and we wished Michael Jessop's new endevour ever success.
