Just had a delicious Sunday roast. Brilliant service and friendly staff. They have a gluten free menu which was lovely to see. The food is not the cheapest in the area but the quality and size portions cannot be beaten. Will definitely be returning. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

This is the first time I have felt obliged to write a poor review. We booked lunch for four at the Horse & Jockey two days ago. It was a very warm Sunday so the pub was busy which may account for the very slow service. I assume there were a lot of people eating outside as it didn't seem... More

Lovely, welcoming environment in a lovely location. Quiet but clearly popular. Service was efficient and with a smile. Gentleman serving ensured we had everything we liked. Great range in the menu and food was delicious! Presented beautifully too. 10% off next visit within 28 days. Great for those more local! Would definitely recommend.

The place is in need of some love, the food was awful, the garden has rubbish everywhere and fag butts! The only good thing is the peroni on tap! Real shame as nice pub in nice settings but certainly wouldn't waste cash eating here again!

Went with a large group of about 16. Don't know whether the kitchen couldn't cope but the food was really poor. Came out in various stages. Meat overcooked and like old leather, vegetables either raw or mush, Yorkshire puddings like pancakes, could have broken window/teeth with vegetarian offering. One friend who has been before said it's usually better. Wouldn't go... More

We have been going to The Horse and Jockey regularly on Friday nights for a meal when they have live bands playing, in fact we were there this Friday and the food was fine. We arrived for our 4pm Mothers Day booking (7 adults ,baby and our dog) to find that our table was still occupied by another group so... More

We came for lunch with some friends and our baby. The owners were very friendly and attentive. The food is traditional 'pub grub' and was well done and reasonably priced. Would come back.

Couldn't find our booking to begin with so tried to blame us that we had phoned the wrong number! when they eventually found it we were taken to our table which was dirty and the... More
