Description: The Horse and Jockey is a privately owned business around a 5 minute drive...
The Horse and Jockey is a privately owned business around a 5 minute drive from the centre of Market Bosworth. Set in pretty countryside, alongside the Ashby canal network and Ivanhoe cycle path. The property after sometime closed was completely refurbished and redesigned reopening in November 2011. The business now has a popular seperate restaurant, a spacious room that is both informal and relaxing. The menu offerings have emphasis on flavours, freshness and good value and what we have created is a modern approach to traditional favourites. We also have a seperate bar and lounge area where we have an open fire, cask ales, a varied wine menu and great selection of malt whiskies. In addition to the restaurant we have a bar menu offering a simpler approach to eating with us but without compromising our cooking principles. In the summer you can enjoy the weather using our large garden area or maybe on the terrace. We hope to see you soon...

We live close to the Horse and Jockey and absolutely love it there. The food is fantastic and such good value when doing the two for £16 menu. Arrive early and go for a drink in the lovely bar first.

Very nice welcome and the staff are very helpful and friendly, smashing menu of food and wine that covered all the bases. What was delivered was well above the average and we will definitely be coming back again next month.

A very good lunch, served by friendly staff in charming surroundings. What more can you ask for? I will definitely come back and would recommend with confidence. My sister and niece are also keen to revisit.

A total of 18 of us met for a family meal on a Thursday lunchtime. Some chose a la carte others the fixed price menu, without exception everyone commented on the high quality of the food and excellent service. The staff were attentive and efficient without being intrusive, quite a difficult thing to achieve. This coupled with the excellent ambiance... More

From the outset, a great place for Sunday lunch. We were shown to our table straightaway (with the option of a drink in the bar area first) and a lovely experience from start to finish. If I was being picky, there was something of a delay between ordering and receiving, but the quality of the food in my opinion more... More

I don't want to bore people with an essay , so we booked Sunday dinner here yesterday, I'm guessing they were seriously under staffed, we had to wait half an hour after the table was booked to be seated, always had to stop and ask staff for anything as they didn't once ask if they could get us any thing...
