I actually made a reservation and you were not open. This was extremely inconvenient as we had travelled from London and were then stranded with no where to go as everywhere was fully booked.

As always an excellent meal in safe, secure & comfortable surroundings. Shameful when somewhere like this has to close for Covid when so many other far more risky public places can continue with debatable restriction.

I'll start with the COVID side of things...., This pub/restaurant is always very well managed so it comes as no surprise that procedures for observing all of the requirements that COVID has placed upon the hospitality sector were in place and being observed by all. There was a full menu on offer as well as a small range of specials and as always, the quality of the food served was exceptional. My French Onion Soup was the best I have ever tasted and my Wife had the Breakfast Hash which, as always was delicious. Our main courses of Haddock and Chips and Pan Fried Pheasant breast were both first class. Likewise, the service was very good and judged perfectly, not fussy but always present should you require anything. My scores are all 5 stars except Atmosphere (4 stars) and the only reason that is not a 5 is down to the limitations COVID has brought that resulted in a quieter dining area than usual. I know some people are uncertain about going out to restaurants at the moment. Don't be. The Horse and Jockey will give you a well deserved and safe wonderful meal - get booking!

We visited quite early in the evening and shortly after the country had come out of a Coronavirus lockdown and this may have had an impact on the atmosphere. Never the less the food and service were excellent. We would visit again.

This was my first visit since moving into the area, taking my 6-year-old son with me. We were warmly greeted and well looked after by all the team who served us and my son was treated with a few extra sweets on his dessert, which was a great touch he loved. Food was really tasty, well presented and a delight to have, when we;re allowed I'll be back right back in! Glad w got in before lockdown II - the sequel! :-(

A lovely late Sunday lunch to belated celebrate my friend’s 80th birthday. A real treat to have a roast with delicious tender beef. And the creme brûlée afterwards was just right. Thank you!

The french onion soup was delicious, followed by two fish mains, both delicious in elusive sauces. The standards are always high in this establishment, and this meal set the bar even higher.
