We regularly visit the Horse & Jockey pub. The choice of cask beers is fantastic and the staff are always warm and friendly even during the busy periods which is often, as its such a poular watering hole!

A proper traditional pub with a choice of great beers and a friendly face behind the bar. The place was spotlessly clean too. We had a Packington Pork Pie there for lunch - only £4.50 and enough for two of us for a light nibble....More

Very busy pub on Friday evenings. Met with friends and the pub was extremely busy however service was good and beer excellent. Great to be in a bar with so much atmosphere and bar staff who know how to pull a proper pint.

Dropped in here to case the joint. We were customers..we were not given the greeting..or smiles, or about the weather sentences. Lack of lunchtime atmosphere made us assume food was sparse. The Ale was superb well poured and the right temperature...not frosty.
