Food was brilliant... just portion sizes too small! We all had a roast dinner and there was not enough of anything on the plate... the kids meals had nearly as much as the adults!!! Atmosphere was lovely and whole place was a beautiful setting.

For special occasions like birthdays and visits from distant friends I always celebrate with a dinner at the Horse and Jockey. The food is excellent and the offering depends on the time of year. For example, on our last visit I ate some Cornish mussels, which were the best mussels I've ever tasted.

We visited for our anniversary. The service was friendly and efficient. The chef made us a delicious seafood platter to share as a special request, which was a lovely touch. The roast beef was cooked to perfection and the vanilla cheesecake was really beautiful. Couldn't fault the food. Will definitely visit again and have already recommended to friends. Thank you

What a fantastic pub, I wish I lived closer. A superb level of friendliness and the food was just delicious, had trouble choosing what to have as could have picked so many of those dishes! Excellent overall
