Great food and really nice atmosphere well with a visit. Fab log burner in winter and plenty of outdoor seating in summer.

This pub benefits from its location midway round the Rutland Water cycle path. They've tastefully created a pavement beer garden in front of the pub. Haul your weary bones off the bike and enjoy a nice refreshing pint of Peroni. I've heard mixed reports about the food here which isn't cheap but for a summer drink, it's ideal.

My husband, my cousin and I had lunch at the Horse & Jockey on Sun 5 March (a birthday treat for me). Plenty of choices on the menu. We all enjoyed our meal very much. Good atmosphere with lots of people having a good time. Efficient and friendly staff.

Walked in on the spur of the moment whilst visiting Oakham. We both had dishes from the specials which were extremely nice. Portion size was good value for money, total bill with drinks was £37 which given the quality of the food and beer made for a very pleasant lunch.

Once again we visited the horse and jockey on our way back from up north. The pie was incredible and well worth a detour! Friendly and hospitable staff made for a welcome break on a long journey. Have been here many times before and will continue to do so. Fantastic! And thank you!
