Really disappointed by the quality of the steak. Mostly gristle which was a real shame.

Booked The Jockey Inn as we were staying overnight in Earl's Croome so we'd not been before. Very impressed with the great food, first rate service and relaxed but professional ambience. The staff all appeared to be very well trained which is such refreshing change. We would definitely book again when we are in the area.

Good service and food, as usual.

I think they were a bit short staffed so kitchen trying to cope with starters and puddings at the same time.

Excellent food. Bar service slow, had to ask twice, out door table we were given was cleared of glasses but not wiped so sticky with previous users glass rings. Despite that would use again.

Very pleasant dinning experience
Lovely staff we ate outside and it was a lovely evening
The food was overall good but our starters were a bit ordinary hence the star score! The gravelax was nice but not a generous portion and could have done with the addition of say wheaten bread. The pate was a bit tasteless looked like shop bought and the brioche bread didn’t do it for me!
Our mains, steak and halibut were excellent and almost too generous!
Overall a nice experience and we will go back again and have a sharing plate as starter!

Met my brother & his wife who both live in Sussex for lunch. It's the second time the 4 of us have lunched at the Jockey. Yet again they were really impressed. The consistency of the food & service is excellent. Well done to all at The Jockey.

We’re a demanding family lol. Vegan. 1 is gluten free. 1 likes smaller platters. The staff were fabulous. They chuckled and accepted our needs. Well done guys. We’re not intentionally awkward. You made our night.

The quality of the food, cooking and presentation that made The Jockey so special seems to be disappearing. The little things, the attention to detail on the plate and the attentive service is not as it was.

Nowadays it’s just regular pub grub rather than refined dining.

We are regulars and the last two visits have seen a dried out burger, a poor Lamb dish and two overcooked steaks.

They have lost their excellent head chef during lockdown, so maybe that’s the reason.

Unless they address things quickly their hard won reputation for excellence will be lost.

There were four of us. Every single dish was sent back. It may have just been a bad night at the office, but it was actually rather embarrassing. From the inexperienced service to the cooking. It’s a pub so you don’t expect the world, but asking for cutlery 3 times before starters arrived gave the game away. In the end it was unfortunate that the cutlery did arrive.
The wine and beer was good, and very reasonably priced. Ambience also good. I suspect they were way over capacity- not the kitchen or waiting staff’s fault.

Food was great as usual but the service for the first time was poor but this may have been as they seemed to be training new staff, probably just an isolated 'bad day at the office'. Not put off, will gladly book again.

Food not that great at all tbh, I don't think anyone enjoyed what they had. It may have been a bad night or something as the reviews on here are actually very good.
All staff were friendly, although some of the younger staff were getting it in the neck in public which wasn't nice to see.

Our second visit and every bit as nice as the first. Lovely afternoon at the Jockey and we were not rushed in any way. Food was very nice and staff helpful. We had a slight problem with the drinks which the staff rectified immediately. We will definitely be back again.

We were greeted by a lovely friendly member of staff and as the weather was nice we were offered a table outside for pre dinner drinks. The outside area was lovely with heaters if you started to feel a little chilled. The snug area we ate in was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The menu was varied and not overwhelming with plenty of variety to please our party of 6, with everyone choosing a different dish. The excellent service continued throughout our stay and we will definitely be returning and recommending to friends.

This place is a major local asset and deserves to be supported. It's on the pricey side, but the food and the customer service make the extra spend a bargain and a special experience all round. This Jockey's a winner!

Both the food and the service was excellent. My only criticism would be that the menu provided at the table differed and was far more limited to the one published on line.
