Jackson & Rye LOGO-with-writingA new restaurant has opened in Guildford, just past the Royal Grammar School in the Upper High Street.

Jackson & Rye’s menu offers good home cooked American-style food served all day long – from 8am to 11pm through the week Monday to Friday, 9am to 11pm on Saturdays, and 9am to 10.30pm on Sundays.

The restaurant comes with a bar with excellent wines promised and classic cocktails. Ryes are a feature of the house as you would only expect with an American Old Fashioned – a recommended drink to start.

For those not in the know – and there are probably many in that category – an Old Fashioned goes back to the 1880s in America, made with whiskey, water, sugar and Angostura Bitters. Jackson & Rye’s take on that archetypal cocktail is to use a combination of Woodford’s Reserve Rye and Eagle Rare 10-year-old Bourbon.

The food offers American-style breakfasts including eggs, maple slab bacon, hand-drip coffee and fresh juices.

Brunch, a brilliant American invention, can be fluffy buttermilk pancakes with fresh blueberries, crispy bacon and loads of maple syrup. Steak and eggs, grilled lobster and Bloody Mary’s all round.

And that’s before the day has started. If you are in for lunch or later, for dinner, steaks, buttermilk fried chicken, barbecue ribs, superfood salad, market fish and a daily grill are all on the menu.

As you would hope for from an American restaurant, they are aiming for welcoming and stylish yet laid back. The restaurants are inspired by the New York designers, Roman & Williams and they see hospitality as the key to their style of service, personal yet professional.

The Guildford restaurant is the latest branch to open in the chain with others in Soho, Chiswick, Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames and the City of London.

Jackson & Rye is located at 219 High Street, Guildford GU1 3BJ.

Definitely one to look out for!
