I visited the Horse and Jockey at the weekend, where I was part of a Christmas party group. Having arrived in the dark, I couldn't comment on the surroundings, but the venue inside is beautifully decorated, there was a very nice fire and I would have to say that there was a very nice atmosphere throughout. As this was a... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday, he had wanted to go for ages and we both loved it. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely.

My wife and I were visitors to the area entertaining my daughter and family to celebrate her birthday. No complaints about the physical venue, but the food and service left a lot to be desired. We arrived as booked at 18:30 on a Saturday evening, and were the first party in dining room. My crab starter was just acceptable, but... More

'Forgot The Wife's birthday so we booked only a few days earlier and got lucky with a table for four at 8pm on a Saturday. Get in! Welcome - warm and friendly and so were the regular drinkers who share the bar/reception area. None of those stares one sometimes gets when diners walk into "their" local. Food - excellent. My...

We have now dined at this establishment 3 times in a groups of 24 to 30 people having a Pub Lunch. Although the menu was a fixed choice of 3 starters, 3 mains, and 3 deserts, the choices were excellent and very good value for money. The courses were pre ordered and each person in the group dining was given... More

It's always a good sign when the menu includes several dishes in each course which all sound attractive, making choice difficult. As the four of us scanned the menu, the amuse bouche was beautifully presented and delicious. After umming and ahhing, we selected 'Roasted Portobello mushroom with Parma ham, pesto and parmesan shavings' ("I wish I could cook one as... More

We visited here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We have visited here on several occasions, as a couple, with friends, Sunday lunch and as a group. The food has always been good, well prepared and nicely served. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant has themed nights once a month and I understand from 2015 will be having...

Having enjoyed a lunch at the Horse and Jockey I can see why it was selected as Bedfordshire’s Dining Pub of the Year a couple of years ago. A warm welcome for our group of four and a good and varied menu or, should we wish it, a fixed price menu. My starter was a mushroom with parma ham, olives,... More
