Lovely lunch thanks. The only thing I would say is to make more of your sandwiches on the menu. I had the steak and mushroom and it was fab.

Food was fantastic. Atmosphere and decor top notch. Last minute change of plans meant change of venue and I’m really happy about we decided to come. Looking forward to a return visit.

The meal was unbelievable, fresh and cooked perfectly. The service we received was also superb. Atmosphere - my only comment would have been they could have had some background music to improve the ambience.

Food was delicious as always. This time felt portion sizes were smaller and although not rushed the servce was very quick. We were in and out in less than an hour for 2 course meal. It waz lunchtime though and previously we have been in the evening.

One of our regular dining venues, the Horse & Jockey 'ticks the boxes' in so many respects. Bright and airy dining room, cleverly partitioned so that neighbouring tables are not too close, so conversation is unimpeded. Staff all of whom invariably make us feel welcome. Efficient service. Interesting menus. And, above all, delicious meals (not just clever or nice food, but perfect-sized portions of well balanced tasty food. Amuse bouches were unexpected, lovely and whetted our appetites. Starters were equally delicious, with a whole variety of textures and flavours. As a main course,the Catalan fish stew has remained on the menu for years, and deserves to stay there. Lovely flavour, spicy but not too spicy, and with the must luscious, plump, perfectly cooked mussels that I have ever eaten. My companions' pork and lamb were equally praised. Desserts were up to the same standard, my ONLY criticism (no, suggestion, not criticism) is that my summer pudding deserved to be served with clotted cream and not merely 'runny' cream. To end the meal on the same high note, our coffees were perfect. What an enjoyable evening!

Excellent Sunday lunch. Fantastic food as always - one of my favourite restaurants. No five stars for atmosphere as it was very noisy due probably to my fellow diners having such a super lunch!
