This review hasn't been rated yet.
I am writing this review based NOT upon a single visitation, but in relation to a number of visist me and my wife have made to the Tilbury since moving to the area around 6 years ago.
Moreover I feel compelled to write this on the basis that at time of going to press, the Tilbury was scoring 5.70 which is frankly ludicrous.
This gastro pub is in my opinion the most consistent performer within a 10 mile radius for sure.
Not only are signature dishes like the “plate of pork” tirned out to a consistenetly high standard but new ideas and cuts of meat and game appear all the time.
On my last visit – one of the waitresses recommended a “special” which was a cut of meat I had never had before. She told me her dad liked it and “he's very fussy”. Think it was called ingelott?!?!? Bottom line was it was THE best tasting piece of meat I have had this century.
Anyway, if you are in the area, in my opinion, this offers the second best value in this part of Hertfordshire.
Game excellent, beef cuts very good, local produce used across much of the menu. Deserts also do not disappoint which is sometimes easily done in this type of establishment.
Consistently high standard – and is our “default” place to eat when we have nothing in. Only once did i have a poor meal here – and that was a battered fish option.
Stick with local products, lovingly handled, and you cannot go far wrong.
