Jones Winery Restaurant
A gastronomic experience
A French Experience
Arthur and Mandy are delighted to collaborate with young chef Briony Bradford, who heads the Jones Winery Restaurant.
Mandy studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, and in Briony has found someone who shares her same passion, respect for tradition and dedication to the proper way of doing things.
Briony’s expertise in French technique has been developed by working with Michelin-starred chefs Claude Bosi at Hibiscus and Andre Garret at Galvin at Windows in London, and with Paul Cooper at Bishop Sessa, Ross Lusted at The Bridge Room, Grant King at Gastro Park and Brent Savage at The Bentley Restaurant and Bar in Sydney.
Jones Winery Restaurant was awarded One Hat by The Age Good Food Guide 2023.
French Cuisine in Rutherglen
Open for lunch from Thursday to Sunday. On the third Friday of each month we open for a 5 course, themed degustation dinner.
In Rutherglen, Briony and her team have access to a wealth of local ingredients, and collaborative relationships with the farmers who produce them. The seasonal menu may include Murray Grey beef, bred on the property; local pork, trout, duck or goat; and a rainbow of local vegetables, including some from the kitchen garden.
Briony is equally inspired by gastronomic traditions, native ingredients and the sustainability ethos of ‘waste nothing’. Dishes are expertly executed, with all components made from scratch. Mandy applies the art and science of food pairing to ensure that there is an appropriate wine to match each one.
The Jones front of house team deliver well-informed, gracious hospitality; they delight in seeing guests enjoying themselves. No matter whether you choose to dine from the a la carte menu, partake in a pique-nique or order a gourmet hamper to take away, the same attention to detail is applied, to ensure an excellent experience.
