St Marys Lane, Upminster, RM14 3LT
The Jobbers Rest, in the town of Upminster, is about as traditional a pub as you're likely to find. The atmosphere is homely and down to earth, the menu is packed with British pub favourites, as well as a few more exotic dishes, and the large oak bar showcases wooden caskets of ales and beers like Speckled Hen, Spitfire and Doombar. Since Sharon and Paul took over seven years ago, they've really brought it to life - there's live music on Saturdays, talent nights on Tuesdays, 'steak-out' Wednesdays, Sunday roasts, Beaujolais Nuevo evenings and more.

As we arrived, we couldn't help but notice the wonderful garden outside, with a lovely large lawn. It would make a great spot for a refreshing drink on sunny days, and we were told that barbecues serving locally sourced meat and fish take place in summer.

Sitting in the cosy dining area, set on a raised platform, my companion and I opted for garlic mushrooms to share, served with an aioli dip that had a lovely chili kick. For the main event, I tucked into a homemade Sri Lankan chicken curry with a blend of authentic spices, served with sides of steamed rice, tasty samosas, sticky mango chutney and warm naan bread - it was a feast for the senses. The delicious-looking homemade steak pie opposite me, served with East-End mash and a medley of fresh peas, baby corn, carrots and broccoli, was quickly devoured. To round off our hearty meal, we ordered a creamy latte and a generous portion of apple pie and custard, which we enjoyed in the snug living room
