Having heard good reports from friends, four ladies decided to visit. My first visit for over 20 years. What a change! Impressed with modern, smart decoration. Friendly staff, very busy for a lunchtime. Had the set menu which was absolutely delicious. Prawn cocktail was enhanced by the sun dried tomato, giving a nice twist. Battered monkfish was gorgeous, with homemade pea puree and homemade tartar sauce, nice combination. The 'burnt' lemon tart was scrummy, with a crunchy sugar topping. Really enjoyed the food and ambience. Only drawback was the room echoed, and it was difficult to hear conversation at the table, as busy, surrounding tables could be heard. Not sure how you overcome this. However, this will not stop us returning.

The quality & presentation of food was excellent. The food was delicious- the summer pudding (one of my favourite summer desserts) was the best I have ever tasted! The service was friendly & efficient. We asked if we could move tables to a quieter area of the restaurant, away from a large group party & this was done straight away with no fuss. We would highly recommend the Horse & Jockey & hope to return again soon.

Very nice venue and friendly staff, food a bit pricey but not outrageous. Main gripe would be our main courses being served before the plates from the first course were taken away, we weren't the only table to have this.

I walked to the Horse and Jockey across the fields from north Bedford with some work colleagues for a team building event. The lunch at Horse and Jockey was fantastic - we started with a few drinks and a chat around the bar, followed by some great food at the table including options from a vegan menu that they’d kindly created for us. Highly recommended.

Sadly, we were plagued by blow flies - at least 6 and a wasp during the meal which was a little disappointing and perhaps something that needs addressing for the future.
