The Horse and Jockey is a perfect choice if you want somewhere that does highly rated food for good value as well as a relaxing atmosphere. The service was exceptional throughout from start to finish.

We have been to this gastro pub several times and have always found it enjoyable. However, on this occasion the food on the specials board was not up to the standard we have had in the past. Good size portions but not very flavoursome.
Won't stop me going back but will be more selective from the menu

Went to the Horse & Jockey as my dad moved to Wessington and raves about the Sunday roasts, first time visiting and won’t be the last. The pub/restaurant is so modern and welcoming, staff were attentive and polite all the way through the visit. 3 of us ordered the butchers block, amazing! Huggggee portion, would definitely recommend the place to anybody, can’t wait to go again to give the rest of the menu a try.

Never visited before it was recommended by a friend who had been for Sunday lunch and said it was beautiful and great value for money. Visited on June 18th with two friends. Food arrived beautifully presented and hot. The staff are second to none. Three meals and several large glasses of wine, when the bill arrived we were pleasantly surprised. My first visit but not my last

First time I have eaten here. The food was excellent. Service very efficient, and it was nice not to rushed. The staff were very accommodating when we asked to be moved to another table, as a member of our party has a hearing defect. Will definitely be returning.

Always excellent food and service. Proposed to my girlfriend and as I made the staff aware, they seated us in a nice quiet spot. When she said yes the gave us complimentary drinks and a dessert board saying "congrats" in toffee sauce. Very nice touch which made it all even more special. Thank you so much. Our favourite restaurant

I booked a table for four of us a while ago for breakfast. We have had excellent breakfasts in the past there & thought it would be an excellent choice for our Bavarian visitors to join us before flying back home. The food was excellent as ever. However I was very disappointed to be taken to our table in the TV & games room of the pub. We informed the waitress we had booked but were informed as we weren’t staying overnight at the Horse & Jockey we couldn’t eat in the restaurant area. Previously when we’ve booked for breakfast we’ve always eaten in the restaurant & the table has been set in preparation. Our guests enjoyed the food - but I felt after seeing the almost empty restaurant that it was a little inflexible to seat us where we were.

Convenient location, friendly staff, good that they offer more on a Sunday than just roasts and are serving food into the evening. Would be a nice place to sit outside on a sunny day. Range of wines and beers.

Easy table booking on line, great service at the bar followed by excellent service in the restaurant. Food was very tasty and well presented, portions were good, couldn’t manage a dessert after starter and main. Good value for money. Will definitely visit again

We have found if in basement you get forgotten service very poor should be staffed other diners also had to go back to main bar to get service
When we have dined in main upstairs restaurant service very good

Food was awful, my mother sent a side salad back because she asked for no oil or dressing on it and never received it back, so paying £12 pound for a small piece of gammon and pouched egg. Nearly everything on the menu is fried which doesn’t help people that are on diet plans etc. I had a burger where the bun was wet and soggy, I could of got better standard at a weatherspoons. Overall a horrible experience and I will not be returning. Overpriced horrible rubbish. The worst thing is we were not the only people to complain that night either. Worse pub food I have ever encountered.

The service by all the staff was excellent.
We had a Butchers Block, the meat was lovely but sadly most of the veg was only just warm.

We would return but the service downstairs in the ‘basement’ was so slow, some of the food was cold when it arrived and had to be sent back. It was an hour between starters and mains and we had to have our ordered chased. Disappointing

Staff were friendly, the food however was mediocre and pricey for what it was. There were not 10 chicken wings as stated and they were dry and over cooked. I find it strange how the whitebait came served with heads on as in my experience they always come headless. There were only 3 lamb koftas which I’d expect more for nearly £5 a portion. The trio of sausage was just awful, the Yorkshire pudding like cardboard and the gravy was horrible. When it came to paying there had been an extra pint put on the bill and we hadn’t received 3 small plates for £12.95, the waitress changed this but even after bill added up to £65 when it should have only been £62. We informed the bar staff as we were paying by card, she didn’t understand why this was either and changed this for us. Staff were brilliant. We were greeted on entry, sat at a table quickly and they kept coming and checking on us, the food and the bill situation however let our experience down.

Mid week meal, nice place very good service from friendly staff. The three mixed starters to share very nice. Main course fine though deep fried chicken bit dry and heavy going in my opinion. Knickerbocker glory to share, think we were expecting a fruit one but it was chocolate. Unfortunately the Timothy Taylors was off. All in all good and would go again and sample something different from the menu.

This was the worst meal my wife and I have ever had in this place. The pork belly was string and tough and both our meals were just swimming in gravy. The noise level was so high that we couldn't hear what the staff were saying. Lot of it caused by a child at one table who did nothing but cry and scream nearly all the way through it's meal. We have now decided that it is a place that we will give a wide berth to in future.

I used to recommend it to my vegan and veggie friends for its extensive and interesting selection of vegan and veggie food, but they seem to have had a change of policy and they now have just the normal pub type choices, veggie burger, curry, humours, homily pie, etc the latter I had and I wasn’t that impressed, certainly wasn’t I was used to as homily pie, just pastry a bit of potato and a white sauce of some sort. I do hope they go back to the more interesting menu.

Service has never been fast.
