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.

Quite simply one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. I have had breakfast 3 times here now the food is cooked to perfection, the sausages are awesome and the value for money is excellent.

A group of us visited the Horse and Jockey yesterday for lunch and phoned ahead to book in lunch for fourteen. We arrived at one o'clock and placed our orders. The last order was out to our table at just after two o'clock which was a long time to wait for simple pub food. Our group was in fact sixteen... More

As a local, I have visited here the Horse and Jockey for some 45 years now and have see it through many changes of atmosphere and personnel. However, the latest 'team', both behind the bar and in the kitchen are to be congratulated. Taking advantage of the recent Indian Summer, we stopped of at the pub en route for a... More

Well, there is a rumour that some negative comments have been placed on TripAdvisor about this wonderful pub, ignore them and visit yaself. The best Sunday Roast is right here, it is a Fullers pub so London Pride on tap and a wonderful Merlot. Don't forget on a Sunday the amazing magician is in the bar from 12-2 doing amazing... More
