Excellent food, service and ambience!

We called In early on Monday just after opening time. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Superbly cooked fresh food and service excellent. Very generous portions served in a relaxing old pub environment with local beers on tap. Thoroughly recommended.

Researched on TripAdvisor as we would be in the area for Valentines weekend and anticipated 'full house' everywhere. Booked in here for food and we were not disappointed. Three course meal for £16 a head. Excellent value. Excellent food and great atmosphere. Staff really good. A la carte n Menu looked good. Will definitely go back if we are in... More

I like to try pub food in various parts of the country and i visited the jockey after looking at trip advisor and i was not disappointed. I visited on a Monday night and wondered what it was going to be like when we were the only ones in the pub, but it was superb, my partner was over the... More

We visited the Horse and Jockey after recently moving into the area. As a couple who both love cooking we also enjoy searching for a great place to eat out. The horse and jockey met and easily exceeded our expectations. The service we received was first class; even when the place was packed full, a personal rapport was built by... More

We booked a table for 2pm on a Sunday having seen the reviews for the place here on Trip Advisor. Upon arrival we discovered that the parking facilities aren't great with their being about 4 spaces out the front. After finding somewhere to park the car we headed in for a fantastic meal! It's a nice, chilled atmosphere in a... More

We heard that this was a great place to eat and we were not disappointed. The Horse and Jockey looks really small from the road, but once you are in, it is much larger than you think. There was an excellent choice of food including vegetarian. All the food is home cooked at very good prices too. The service was... More

Look out for this pub it's well hidden from the road. On the Madeley road into Iron bridge. Excellent food and service. All home cooked food with very reasonable prices. Very friendly staff.

This quaint little pub, tucked away at the top of the hill before your descent in to Ironbridge, is a true local jewel. After searching all day in Shrewsbury and Ironbridge for a vegetarian meal option that wasn't risotto, it was with great delight to see a menu that had five vegetarian options for main meals! My girlfriend (the vegetarian)... More

If you're visiting Ironbridge, it's worth venturing out of the town a little way to find this place. There's not much room to park outside, so leave the car somewhere else and walk there. In the evenings, food is served from 6:30pm to 9pm - you can book ahead if you think it might be busy. We visited on a... More

This is my second review of this place, although I have been four times now. It's never let me down. I cannot fault the food. The Sunday dinner is so tasty. The beef melts in the mouth, there is no taste of "mass made" like some Sunday roasts you get when out. The value for money is excellent. The deserts... More
