Love is for Everyone!

{alt}

We at Jacoby's believe that Valentines Day is a day to celebrate love in general and should not necessarily be exclusive to first daters or anniversary celebrators. Why not simply enjoy an evening out with those we love & care for; be that as a couple, as a family or simply a special meal with a group of close friends. It should be a day to enjoy no matter what your romantic status is!

‘Le Beaujolais Nouveau est Arrivé’ Thursday 17th November 2016

{alt}

A Celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau and The Gamay Grape
Beaujolais Nouveau Day is usually celebrated with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01am, just weeks after the grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout France and further afield to celebrate the first wine of the season. While we cannot manage fireworks, on Thursday 17th November we will be cracking open bottles of this years fresh & fruity Beaujolais Nouveau, straight from the heart of the Rhône-Alpes region in east-central France. This is a relaxed evening to enjoy amongst friends and the chance to taste this year's vintage. We will also be serving up some tasty French morsels for you to enjoy with your wine. Garlic, berets and moustaches optional. Santé!

Young Diners Healthy Food Options at Jacoby’s

{alt}

Eating out as a family is about two things – it's sociable and it's about sharing the experience of fantastic food. All too often children are faced with the obligitory frozen chicken nugget or deep fried fish fingers whilst we adults 'ooh' and 'aah' over the finest, fresh fish with caper butter sauce. Not at Jacoby's! We  favour a children's menu that has a better mix of imaginative and simple options. Or for the discerning young palate we suggest ordering an adult starter and adding a side dish. And of course, where possible, our chefs are always willing to prepare half portions of something more adventurous. It's about choice and we at Jacoby's are committed to offering our 'young diners' imaginative and healthy menu options.

Isabel Hospice Pub Quizathon 2015 - Tuesday 13th October

{alt}

Last October, our pub group, The Bull in Watton at Stone, The White Horse in Burnham Green and Jacoby's took part in the second Quizathon for local charity Isabel Hospice. Pubs across Eastern Hertfordshire all held a quiz on the same night, with The Bull raising the most money for the charity out of all the pubs. In 2014 over 16 pubs took part in the event and the current champions and winners of the Quizathon Tankard are the team at The Angel in Ware so those are the guys we need to beat! This year the charity event is bigger and better with more pubs taking part, including our new sister site, The Lodge in Ware. This is a great fundraising activity for the hospice and one that we are keen to support at Jacoby's. Entry fee for the Quizathon is £12, £5 of which goes directly to the hospice along with any other monies we raise from a raffle / heads & tails round etc. The entry fee also includes a fish & chip supper (a veggie option will be made available).

For fans of the oval ball, Jacoby's unites two of the United Kingdom's greatest treasures on Friday 18th September – real ale and live coverage of the opening England match of the Rugby World Cup 2015.

In fact we are fast approaching a period when the coming together of these two 'amigo's' should practically be encouraged! Our live TV coverage of the Rugby World Cup 2015 starts on Friday 18th September with a match schedule as follows;

Friday 18th September 8pm ENGLAND V FIJI
Saturday 19th September 2.30pm IRELAND V CANADA

Sunday 11th October 4.45pm FRANCE V IRELAND

Jacoby's offer a range of great British Ales & ciders, giving you a chance to drink a pint or two in support of your country. We will be looking to source some bottled beers from other countries competing in the World Cup to provide a bit of competition for our Great British cask beers. So why not come along, with a group of friends, and get behind your team!

The World ‘Sup’

International Whistle-Wetters v Great British Ales
Watch all the action at Jacoby's
From Thursday 12th June 

Food, football & beer have formed a harmonious union over the years, a seamless trio that make weekends all the better for being a party to. And who are we to break the tradition? In fact we are approaching a period when the coming together of these three 'amigo's' should practically be encouraged! Our TV coverage of the World Cup starts on Thursday 12th June with England games as follows;

Saturday 14th June England v Italy - BBC 11pm
Thursday 19th June Uruguay v England - ITV 8pm
Tuesday 24th June Costa Rica v England - ITV 5pm

To support England we will be selecting a range of great British Ales & ciders and give you a chance to drink a pint or two in support of your country. We will be looking to source some bottled beers from other countries competing in the World Cup to provide a bit of competition for our great English cask beers. So why not come along to Jacoby's with a group of friends, and get behind England! On the food front we will be serving up some great sharing plates with the emphasis on International flavours.
