Dog friendly and a great vegetarian option

This is the 2nd time we have visited for Sunday lunch and we are so impressed with both the quality of the food (great vegetarian option for the Sunday roast) and how brilliant they are with our dog.

Just back from another family meal at the Horse & Jockey. We had four different main courses between us, all really tasty - and the chips are so good! We found the service good, as always - friendly and helpful. And quick, which helps when you have a toddler with you!

I would have to say after reading all the excellent reviews for the Horse and Jockey we were slightly disappointed with our Sunday lunch experience. The pub itself is very small and I would estimate seats around 35 and does not have a separate bar area so if your not eating you can't really have a beer as there is... More

Visited the Horse And Jockey Easter Sunday for a quick drink after a long walk to Ironbrige, the food looked good so thought we must try. We returned today to see if it tasted as good as it looked. I had Duck Pancake and my partner the black pudding with poached eggs as starters, followed by the 2x stakes and... More

Visited with our young family - they only serve well-behaved children - and their menu didn't disappoint. Freshly prepared meals and while our youngest had chicken goujons, they were clearly home cooked and not fished out of a freezer. A real find in Ironbridge, worth a visit. Vfm.

We made a return visit to this pub restaurant while on a visit to Ironbridge,recently. It's a small place but with a great selection of meals, fine flavours and generous servings. Whether for Sunday lunch or Evening dining, you're guaranteed a tasty meal in comfortable surroundings.

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
