We used to visit the Horse and Jockey on a regular basis before the fire and subsequent re-furbishment, and always found both the food and the ambience excellent. However, due to the closure, we found ourselves another bolthole which we have continued to frequent. We wonder if this has happened to a number of people who live outside of Stanford.... More

Thanks to the manager at this hotel,the accommodation was very clean and well presented, the breakfast in the morning was served with a smile, and the service was excellent, friendly and efficient. The bar area is very olde worldy, with a log fire and old beams which give the whole place atmosphere

Was visiting friends who frequent the Horse and Jockey regularly.Was looking forward to my meal as it is a treat for me to eat out. I had scallops and black pudding followed by apple crumble. The scallops were miniscule and the pea and mint sauce was smaller than a tear drop. The apple crumble was sickly sweet and I only... More

We are so sorry you were disappointed with your meal. We had a lot of positive feedback about the scallops special so we're surprised to hear you felt your portion was too small. It's a real shame that you didn't tell us as we'd have happily increased your portion size, as you said our staff are friendly, they would have... More

Thi was my first time at this hotel and booked for a business visit was unsure what I would find. On arrival at the hotel I was greeted by the couple who own the hotel and was given a guided tour of where I was staying. I was then left to my own devices. When I went for my evening... More

Lovely pub and nice staff but the food could have been better - small portions! There was no bread with the soup, very small pate starter, plates were lukewarm, but the food, especially the roast potatoes was cold, we had to request all the meals to be re-heated in the microwave! Roast meals should be hot - I can only... More

Charles Gaunt contacted us prior to our visit to see if food would be required as they were very busy on the evening we arrived. We were shown to our room in a courtyard. The room were very clean. There... More

The two owners Anna and Charlie were very welcoming and made us feel really at home, it's a very local country pub with three bedrooms at the... More

Just stayed at the hotel this weekend. The pub staff are great, really friendly and helpful. Stopped here just the one night but made extremely welcome. The room was well presented and spottlessly clean. Food in the pub is great and very well priced. I would definately recommend this pub / hotel and will certainly stop there again when in... More

Its more years than I care to remember since I visited this pub & was slightly apprehensive when my husband told me we were meeting friends there but my concerns were unfounded. We enjoyed a good meal, I chose from the specials menu & the homemade ice cream was more than enough to support a return visit. Our ony negative... More
