WELCOME TO JULES RESTAURANT

Here on the border of Wales, in Weobley, one of the most picturesque of Herefordshire`s black & white villages, Julian and Juliet welcome visitors and old friends to Jules to enjoy food, wine & hospitality in a distinctive, relaxed & friendly atmosphere.

our story

Julian and Juliet established Jules Restaurant in 1985 and have been welcoming customers now for thirty five years and counting.

Julian and Juliet established Jules Restaurant in 1985 and have been welcoming customers now for thirty five years and counting.

In that time we have learned how important it is to create a warm, friendly atmosphere for everyone to enjoy and to provide interesting and consistently good food using wherever possible the finest locally sourced ingredients and serving it up in our own individual style.

So how would we describe our style of food?

Fine country cooking would probably best sum it up; a fusion of classic flavours & modern style, always served up  in generous amounts.

Tom has been in charge of the kitchen for the last five years, always working in the fast lane, juggling the orders & working with great skill usually singlehanded -at the stove tops every session. He is a brilliant innovator and devotes much time & energy into researching and developing new dishes for the menus.

Jules takes much more of a back seat these days- at the grand age of 83! but still enjoys keeping  the kitchen supplied with a constant flow of soups, pates & terrines & casseroles, painstakingly prepared and flavoured with the accuracy which have always characterised  his signature dishes.

He is occasionally known to entertain our guests with an appearance in the restaurant.

Juliet is front of house and doubles as pastry chef and as you will discover when you visit us puddings are important!

 

our menus

Seasonality and flavour are key to everything we produce in our kitchens. Our menus evolve constantly and mirror the changing seasons.

As the year unfolds and fresh new foods appear, we are always looking to develop new recipes or add fresh insights to classic themes and favourite dishes. 

We have two basic  principles - to use as much produce made here in Herefordshire as we can and if we can make it ourselves we don’t buy it in!

For instance, we make our own 100% pure pork sausages, charcuterie & delicious faggots, home cured salmon & bacon, lots of delicious ice creams & sorbets, the different breads which features on all our menus and of course cakes, scones & pastries to go with morning coffee.

We have our own smokehouse on site for smoking fish, meat and cheese.



The Brunch Menu  is available from 9.00 am to 11.30 am and gives a modern twist to the traditional breakfast with a variety of options all including home made &  fresh locally sourced ingredients.  

Lunch is served from 12 noon to 2pm and can be as simple as you like- choose from  a bowl of soup, pate or game  terrine with home baked bread- a toasted sandwich  or make it  a much more leisurely affair with starters, main course, dessert and coffee. Whatever you  choose  we aim to provide excellent quality and good value so come along.  

Dinner is served from 6.30 Tuesday to Saturday. Lots of choice at each stage–-Hereford beef, Cornish caught fish and local game, our signature long slow baked casseroles, vegetarian & vegan options and a generous list of desserts and homemade ice creams & sorbets.

A carefully chosen short list of organic wines from Vintage Roots, Herefordshire ciders and most recently beers from The Weobley Brewing Company –next door to the restaurant- will set off your meal perfectly.

Bon apetit!

Coffee, Teas & cakes We are open every morning except Sundays to welcome visitors & regulars from 9am for coffee and conversation. Expect a lively atmosphere especially on Mondays = Walkers Special and Wedesdays = Cyclists galore – no you don’t need a bike come anyway.

our produce

We are lucky enough to be surrounded by many of the county`s finest food producers which is why we are able to offer on our menus such a good range of locally sourced dishes.

We’re always happy to discuss the provenance of all our ingredients and point our customers in the right direction if they want to sample some of this 
wonderful produce for themselves.

foraging

 

To add an extra seasonal dimension to our menus we enjoy a spot of foraging from time to time. Living in Weobley in the depth of the Herefordshire countryside, the hedgerows and fields provide a larder of seasonal goodies.

Foraging.jpg
 

In the early Spring we bring in wild garlic for pesto & sauces, wild mint, young nettles for butter, wild watercress and horseradish. In May we plunder the hedges for the creamy elderflower heads for cordial, usually getting well stung by nettles in the process.

Field mushrooms flavour soups & casseroles and in September the blackberries make pies &  damsons and sloes are bottled to make  gin and vodka for Christmas  drinking [if we can wait that long]

Brewed in Weobley

Introducing our latest venture - The Weobley Brewing Co. We have been reviving a centuries old tradition of brewing in Weobley.

DSC_3413-LR.jpg

Here at Jules many of our customers enjoy a good pint with their meal & for years craft beers have always held a prominent place on our drinks menu. 

So an obvious next step for us has been to build and run a microbrewery in our own backyard. Though we did not realise it at the time we have been reviving a centuries old tradition of brewing in Weobley, which together with glove making & the wool industry helped Weobley prosper for centuries.
