Nice characterful pub with good ambience and friendly service. We had a good lunch, although the beer had run out when we called.

This is the real deal. In the age of large group ownership and bog standard roastie-menus, The Horse and Jockey is an actual, old school local town pub. The barman greets you with a smile and you know you're in a good place. Nice hearty country food and a good pour of beer.

Stayed 2 nights whilst visiting Phil's rally school. Room was v large and great modern bathroom (website pics don't do it justice). Ate there too and good reasonable prices. Lovely fresh cooked breakfast and all the staff were v friendly. Even got told to check out whenever we wanted as no one else was booked in! Highly recommended.

We stopped here after a walk with our dog. The lady behind the bar was friendly and helpful, as were the waiting staff. We were welcomed into the bar area with our dog and the Sunday lunch we had was fantastic! Very good value for money. Thank you 😀

Staying nearby we called in one evening for a drink and meal. Service was excellent, even though the young lady was on her own behind the bar and things got a little busy. She was jovial and smiling and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, very tasty and very good value for money. If you're in the... More

Enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at the Horse and Jockey in early January. Extensive menu, and having missed my Christmas Lunch I had the turkey which was delicious. Others had the sizzling steak, roast beef and salads. The meal was served by a very cheerful waitress. Will definitely go again.

In a small town where not much happens out of season midweek we called in to kill a few hours. Its quaint without being too olde worlde. Drinks prices reasonable, pool table 50p, pay for Duke box if you want any music. Didnt eat here but didnt spot much dining activity available beyond pizzas or pub grub. Nice atmosphere.

Thank AdamB1966
