On the up and up
Jones Winery Restaurant has been listed in the recently released Australia Good Food Guide 2019.
It is described as “rustic dining on local produce framed in French technique” in the guide itself.
The French-cuisine restaurant was given 14 out of 20 points, just one point off being awarded a Hat, and is one of only five restaurants in the north-east that has been listed.
This is a first for Briony Bradford, the head chef at Jones Winery Restaurant, who was honoured to be acknowledged as one of the best chefs in the region.
The Good Food Guide reviewer visited early this year, not long after Briony had started at the restaurant, and the dishes and menu continue to improve with her passion for using local, seasonal produce.
Jones Winery Restaurant’s owners, siblings Arthur and Mandy Jones (a cordon bleutrained cook herself), are absolutely thrilled.
“We strive to offer our customers a sensational wine and food experience in a relaxed, warm and friendly atmosphere,” the owners said.
“Briony’s approach to the whole overall dining experience, incorporating our estate grown and produced wines with local produce does just that!”
In June, Briony was awarded one of top 30 under 30 in the hospitality industry by Food Service.
This national Good Food Guide is the number one destination for credible, independent restaurant, bar and cafe reviews and the creator of the ‘hat’ system.
An example to whet everyone’s taste buds is Briony’s paperbark-roasted riverina duck breast with duck sausage, red cabbage and pomegranate.
Jones Winery Restaurant is open for lunch on Thursday through to Sunday.
