Had my annual business lunch at The Horse & Jockey Pub in Curbridge. The food is excellent...home made delicious pie and home made prime steak burger with all the trimmings. Hot fresh veg and all delicious. I've not eaten in this pub for a year - I only live up the road in the village Botley and it was a... More

Stopped at this pub for a family dinner. Let me say from the outset that the staff were great, but the pub lacked atmosphere and the food was disappointing. The starters were ok and the portions generous, but the main meals were ruined by a strange gloop which was passed off as gravy or a jus. The bill was very... More

Dropped into The Horse & Jockey for lunch today. Have visited this pub many times over the years but not recently. The food was of great quality and excellent service. The lady looking after us was excellent. Will visit again soon.

Gentleman who took care of us works with his son. Son is manager and chef. Amazing little place with quite a story about a whale :) Here in Southampton for two weeks and have visited several times for drinks, nibbles and a meal. Everytime has been a great experience.

What has happened to this place? The staff are unfriendly, uncommunicative, the beers poorly kept and over priced. The atmosphere has gone from this once welcoming pub. What a shame. Will not be returning

Stopped for a drink on the way past on a Friday evening. Wish we had not. The place looks great from outside but inside is run down, smells of dog and is completely characterless. Last went here 20 years ago, looks like that was around the last time it was cleaned and decorated.

I had lunch here on a Thursday afternoon about 2:00 and was pleasantly surprised. Lunch still being served, no complaints about the brie, cranberry & bacon sandwich + chips with a decent pint and a half of HSB - total cost £13.55. Welcoming staff - who have recently taken the pub on - nice decor and the 'facilities' were very... More

Great food, friendly service. Quite busy. Good atmosphere. Magician and balloon maker around 2 to 3pm. Parking can be tricky if you have a big car - tiny spaces. We got the last space.
