    Absolutely fantastic Sunday lunch! Incredible food, beef just melted in the mouth, gorgeous roast potatoes and veg. The veggie option of vegetable Wellington was a welcomed change from the usual risotto for the veggie option. Amazing puddings to. Definitely will be coming back and bringing our friends.

    We'd had our 1st Wedding Anniversary dinner that I'd booked 5 months ago unceremoniously cancelled by the venue 3 days before, so we were lucky enough to get a table at The Jockey Inn at short notice . Absolutely everything was perfect. It was my husband's first time there and he loved it so we shall definitely be going back.

    Menu completely different to one online very misleading as there’s is no vegan and vegetarian options very limited menu. We use to go to the jockey before new management and the food and menu were amazing very disappointing there now and you can tell it’s gone down hill by the fact it is not as busy as it use to be.

    The Jockey used to be our trusted place to visit for a good meal NOT ANY MORE - IT WAS ATROCIOUS. The chicken supreme looked as if it had been cooked in bleach. The 'jus' could easily have been just the blood seeping out of the chicken because that's what it looked like. The fried fish was 80% batter, there was so little fish it looked like it had been masticated and stuck together by the batter. We wont be visiting The Jockey any time soon in the near future - Good luck to the new owners!

    Ate outside - it was noisy with drinkers. Our food was late as we had been forgotten. cuttlery was dumped down - felt very unloved. The chicken was tough and the Cornish fish was a small dish for the money - and my husband came away hungary.

    Not the Jockey, we have enjoyed for many years! Very limited menus compared to usual lunchtime menu. My daughter wanted a salad, but none were available. My 3 year old loved her plate of tomato pasta.we have had so many great meals here since it opened, don’t think we will go again!

    Cod was far too salty and inedible. Pork and burger only average . Fish and chips good. Lack of vegetables with pork and cod . Desserts OK but small. Expected far better cooking (which we have had in previous visits), so value not great. Staff and ambience excellent. I doubt if we shall return except for the usually reliable Sunday Lunch

    The Jockey has recently changed hands, we found out as we arrived and nothing was shown on the website. We dined at lunch and there was no fixed price lunch menu, the wine list has been changed and the choices have been reduced. Wine by the glass is not of the quality it used to be, I agree its lower cost. The House champagne was 'yeasty', not good. The food was alright but not special. Service was slow given how empty the restaurant was, however our 2 wait staff were very pleasant. The whole setup needs some TLC (look at the light fittings - they need cleaning). Give us back our old Jockey.

    We had a table next to the toilets. The menu was limited and disappointing. My wife wanted gazpacho but it was sold out by 8pm. I asked for a bottle of Albariño but was told they did not have any, even though it was on the wine list. The mackerel, which 2 of us had, were tiny and a very small amount of tomato salsa for £10 each. My daughter had pan fried cod which was undercooked, the waiter took it back to the kitchen and said he would bring it back, which he did not. After 10 minutes we asked a waitress if she could kindly get it, which she did. My fish and chips was okay. My wife had pan fried cod instead of battered fish which was also okay. We shared a lemon posset with raspberry sorbet which was very nice. We will not return after 7 years of enjoying the excellent food and service.

    Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We were booked in for 5pm so it was very quiet when we arrived and had the attention of all the staff who were very attentive, helpful & knowledgeable. As soon as we sat down it was explained to us that the new chef & owners were running a reduced menu whilst the pub “transitioned” so there was no surprises or disappointment at all as there was still plenty of options to chose from. The starters of wild mushrooms were delicious and by the time we had eaten our perfectly cooked mains of pork belly and steak the tables were starting to fill up and the atmosphere was building. Thank you for a lovely meal and good luck to all at the jockey, we will definitely be back in the near future

    The menu was extremely limited, whereas when I went a few months ago there was a lot more variety. My husbands ribeye steak was incredibly fatty, and my cod was a tiny portion. The blackcurrant icecream was also grainy. The waitress also got our order wrong on 3 occasions. This is a real shame as it’s usually one of our favourite restaurants.

    I was disappointed that the menu on website, upon which I based my decision to book a table meeting friends over from Australia, bore no resemblance to the extremely restricted menu we were offered. It completely misrepresented what we would be offered and we had to make a choice not what we would like but the best of a limited and bad choice. Portion size, particularly for starters was very mean - I had the mackerel and it was tiny and was £10! In general the food was highly priced and did not feel good value for money. The food quality was good, but I ate something that I wouldn't have ordered had there been a wider choice. Service was really poor in terms of very inexperienced staff who did not have any empathy or social skills. They are missing out on opportunities for sales by not offering refreshing of drinks when gathering empties etc. Catching attention to order coffee, desserts was difficult - they were more interested in having a chat. Overall a disappointing evening food wise and I have been on more than one occasion before and had a lovely meal. Thank goodness the company was good.

    Very disappointed, The Jockey has been a long time favourite but last night we were advised it was under new ownership. The menu was very limited to the point we didn’t have starters as nothing appealed and there was no bread or nibbles available. The main courses were very good but at £33 for the steak it was very expensive. Unfortunately we won’t be rushing back. The website is still showing the old menu and should be updated to reflect the change.

    This was our second visit here with friends and once again we all really enjoyed our lunch. The food was cooked beautifully. The only slightly negative comment I would make is that the menu was rather limited. I chose the cod with tomato and chorizo but I didn’t think the aioli mayonnaise went with the dish and felt that a small portion of boiled rice or creamed/fondant potato would have been more appropriate but that’s just a personal opinion. Overall we couldn’t fault the service and quality of the food.

    They had a limited menu under new management, had that been stated on their website, we probably wouldn’t have booked. We found the food was bland ordered fish cakes - no sign of any fish in them - tasteless. Made the staff aware of our comments, they just thanked us for our comments. Overall very disappointed. Won’t be going there again.

    Another very enjoyable trip to the Jockey to celebrate a belated wedding anniversary. It was a bit slow service to start with but it was fully explained by the staff and therefore we understood about the delay. Food was fantastic and I did end up with food envy as my wife opted for the grated truffle and Parmesan on her chips. As always, all the staff were amazing and made the meal more than just some food for the evening. The only downside, as a non-drinker who still does like the vast range of non and low-alcoholic beers available, was just the one choice which was Becks Blue. Disappointing. In summary - great food, good atmosphere and amazing staff.
