The Horse and Jockey is a privately owned business in the village of Congerstone, a short distance from the centre of Market Bosworth. Set in pretty countryside, alongside the Ashby canal network and Ivanhoe cycle path is very popular with tourists throughout the summer. The business boasts 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 you can enjoy 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, lighter 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 also host regular live music which compliments the style of the business. More details can be found on our website and we regularly post updates to Facebook We hope to see you soon...

We attended with friends back in March and we had a good night. The restaurant is very smart and we had good service. I had the steak and it was cooked well. My only criticism is the menu isn't very varied, there were only a small choice of options for all courses. However it was good enough that we will... More

Very smartly renovated pub/restaurant. The food was very good, I had sea bass with a nice sauce and some vegetables, I've had sea bass a lot over the years and it was done slightly differently here which I liked as otherwise it could have just been the same as everywhere else. Good service, the table was quite wide which was... More

We have visited this pub/restaurant every time we`ve been in the Midlands, and it`s not to be missed. The food is wow, the surroundings are lovely, and the staff, are joyful. What more can I say? Situated in Congerstone village, this is an oasis, for boaters, and landlubbers alike. I can`t wait till our next journey south !

It's been over twenty years since I last ate here and I must say the quality is still as good as I remember it. The wife, myself and three of our young grandkids had a bite to eat here after our visit to Twycross Zoo. All of us happy with what we had (as confirmed by the clean plates) service... More

Surprise meal out on a an early Saturday evening and found this gem. Excellent service, great decor and ambience inside with lovely lighting, furnishing and dining area. Simple menu with fantastic food, well presented and speedily served. Particularly good sea bass dish with spinach and potatoes and they were particularly accommodating of my dairy free diet. Nice tropical fruit meringue... More

Another fabulous lunch at this wonderful gastro pub. Quality of the good was superb, service prompt but unobtrusive and the overall experience another 11 out of 10! Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Will be back again.
