Meet the Team Monday: Introducing Jess!

Posted on

Meet Jess! Jess is a waitress and works as part of our hardworking front of house team in the Restaurant and bar.

Jess joined The Saddle Room team in 2014 and was with us for a year before taking a break and re-joining in June of last year. Jess loves working at The Saddle Room as it has meant she has gained her own independence and has been able to move out on her own.

If you are visiting The Saddle Room for a meal the dish that Jess recommends you try is the Cheddar and Bacon Burger served with truffle and parmesan fries. In her own words,

“You will never go home hungry with this dish and the truffle and parmesan fries are to die for!!”

Given the choice of a drink to accompany her favourite dish on the menu, Jess would always choose a classic from our menu, a Sloegasmix! This is a combination of sloe gin and prosecco and is perfect for sipping outside on our terrace on sunny days.

Jess’ favourite quote is ‘Work hard to play hard’ and she intends to do just that, with holidays planned this year to Lanzarote, Marbella, Majorca and a trip to Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh.

No visit to the Tupgill Estate would be complete without exploring the Forbidden Corner, we asked Jess if she had any tips for visitors to the attraction and she said,

“Don’t forget to look in the picnic area and fishing pond! You don’t know what is hiding in there!!”

Other than the Forbidden Corner and The Saddle Room, Jess would recommend that visitors to the area plan a trip to Aysgarth Falls. Aysgarth Falls are stunning waterfalls on the River Ure just a short drive from the Tupgill Estate.

Lastly, we asked Jess top to let us know her biggest pet peeves that she would love to see banished to Room 101. Jess would love to see Cancer banished for good, if you would too why not make a donation to one of the many fabulous charities working hard to find cures to Cancer, as well as baked beans!

We hope you have enjoyed getting to know Jess a little more. Keep an eye out on our website for more staff profiles!
