food was very nice but service was poor, we were sat at our table by a waiter and left without a menu to look at. A couple who walked in after us then got there menu straight away, we were asked if we would like some water after about 10 mins and had to ask the waitress who asked if we would like water for our menu.
we had to follow up twice on our drinks as we didn't get them first it was just a coke then we ordered cocktail when we ordered the cocktail we asked about the coke and they said they would get it right away.But we didn't we had to ask again a waitress walking by for our drinks for the second time and finally got them. food was very good thought just service was very slow.

The Jockey is a lovely pub, ambiance is really nice and friendly. I would go again, but I would choose a later sitting. We had a 6.45 table, but all felt a bit rushed after ordering. The food was delicious, except maybe the duck was overdone, a tad rubbery but tasted lovely. Everything else was great, especially the Sticky Toffee pudding ! A great choice of wine too.

Absolutely love The Jockey Inn, especially the fabulous lady with the wonderful hair who served us.
Would recommend for all occasions. Eight of us had Sunday lunch and we all left having had fantastic food in a lovely atmosphere, which is hard to find these days.

We booked the Jockey Inn as we had a weekend away for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The service and food was excellent. They even brought us a special dessert plate with an anniversary message. If we find ourselves in the area we would book again and we will be recommending this to our friends and family.

Had an excellent evening with family and friends celebrating a birthday. The food was superb and all the staff very friendly. An ice cream birthday cake with a candle was brought in also, without being requested. Will definitely be back.

We were with a party of 7 who went to The Jockey on Sunday for a special occasion and were so appreciative of the service received. We sprung 2 vegan meal requests on the staff with no prior warning and without any fuss, were rewarded with wonderful food. We have always been fans of The Jockey but are even more so now!

Its a tardis; much bigger inside than it looks on the outside. Given that we'd booked 3 weeks in advance, disappointed to be given a table that in our view was arguably in the worst position in a corner. When voicing our displeasure we were quickly moved to a much more appropriate more central spot. The food and service was good. Will probably visit again

Food quality is ok but it used to be a lot better.
The menu needs inspiration and change.
Menu and food quality is falling behind the competition.
The ambiance is lovely and the staff are attentive.

Always have a fantastic meal at the Jockey. One of two favourite go-to places to eat on special occasions. The lunch time fixed price deals are exceptionally good value.

The whole experience of our mid-week lunch for two was very good in that everything took place in a seamless way from being welcomed until we left, whether it was how the courses flowed to the quality and presentation of the food and the very reasonable cost at the end.

Unfortunately, the service was poor. When our order was being taken, the waitress (Lily) was pre-occupied and did not give us her full attention. Items were forgotten and had to be reminded about. The food was really good and the pub itself was really good, it is just a shame it was let down by the service.

We had a lovely meal, it was our Anniversary and they brought out a plate with a scoop of ice-cream over a crumbled base, with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate! It was a lovely surprise.
We will certainly go to eat there again, lovely staff, food and atmosphere....Cant wait!

This is the first time we have been and overall it was a very nice experience. The food choices were good and the food was lovely. The waiter was very pleasant and professional, although the only reason I’ve not given this 5 stars is because two tables who were next to us came in after us but both were asked for drink orders well ahead of us, then food orders before we had even been asked for a drink order. They were then offered bread several times and we weren’t offered any. It looked so nice we asked for some and it was lovely. So there was a lack of attention in this respect but otherwise it was a very nice lunch.

It might also be worth noting that the car park has dividers between spaces that are like raised concrete kerb stone markers. Because it was a bit tight parking my husband let myself and mother in law out of the car. She didn’t see the marker and her ankle twisted on it and she fell onto the ground. These are a little bit dangerous in my view. She didn’t break anything thankfully but was a bit shaken and sore for a few days after. Therefore please be careful especially when the car park is busy or it’s dark.

This was our first visit for dining having had drinks previously.
The menu, food and service all round was excellent.

Only one “bit” of negativity is that it was incredibly warm inside which is great for the winter as it will be lovely and cosy, but in the summer it needs some aircon to keep it at a more ambient temperature

Will definitely be going back with friends.
