Excellent food. Fine dining without the pretentiousness. Good portions too! Very attentive waiters and waitresses, and quick service, despite being a completely full restaurant (on a weekday night!) Loved the added extras of bread and olives etc before our starters. Great value for money, especially the set menu. Can't wait to go back and try more of their fish and... More

Back for another couple of lunches in the past week, and standards are still just as good as my last visit. I love this place for the variety on the menu, friendly service and above all, the excellent food and ability to make things not actually listed on the menu. Great place to go for lunch or dinner, great for... More

Difficult to find and fault with this lovely village pub. Nicely decorated and comfortable restaurant with welcoming and helpful staff. Lovely freshly prepared food on an interesting and diverse menu with what we though had a slightly spanish influence. I am amazed this establishment isn't more highly rated but i am sure if they maintain this level of quality and... More

Went to the Horse and Jockey in Ravensden for lunch. It was a very pleasant experience from start to finish. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. I chose the set menu (three courses for £16) this was too much for lunch but I shared the starter and dessert so it worked out well. The set... More

My partner and I dined here on a quiet Thursday evening and were made to feel most welcome. The staff were friendly and the food excellent. An appetiser of arrancini came first while we selected our dishes. My partners chicken liver parfsit was swiftly declared the best ever while my skate finger with poached egg brioche and hollandaise was also... More

this pub serves excellent food, great value for money. the whole atmosphere is relaxed and calm. we called in on Sunday without booking and were very lucky to get a table (there'd been a cancellation, so booking essential). We were served by freindly staff and at the end of the meal there was no rush to get us out. Basically... More
