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...

Nice pub and restaurant, pretty good drinks selection and the food is great. Going for gastro pub style, and is hitting the mark. Well worth a try!

on line reservation made during closing hours and was answered promptly. Situated in beautiful countryside, the old pub has an an impressive large dining area with bar and an area to have coffee post meal, which was excellent. We all had the roast meats, the portion size was good, quality excellent and value good. Service was attentive without being overbearing.... More

We've visited the Horse and Jockey in Congerstone quite a few times for lunch but this was our first evening experience. The location and décor are first class but both are eclipsed by the quality of the food and the service offered by Arran and his team. It is very refreshing to find a pub/restaurant staffed to a level that... More

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
