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...

The service, food and overall ambience of the pub was superb. We had no complaints whatsoever. They also had a live singer on whilst we were there who was truly excellent. Everyone enjoyed the night!

We stumbled upon this place, and was pleasantly surprised on how lovely the interior was decorated, the staff were very good and sat us down even though we had not booked. It was busy for a Thursday night. The choice of food on the menu was superb, the price of the food was reasonable. The quality of the food was... More

Visited with my husband after having serious pregnancy cravings for Yorkshire Puddings and seeing the reviews. We were not disappointed. The dining area is a modern feel to the traditional country pub, set out spaciously and not crammed in at all. It was very busy on the day we went but staff didn't seem flustered or run off their feet,... More

Recently had a family Sunday lunch here to celebrate a 'double' birthday (8 covers). The food is absolutely superb and the service is exemplary (friendly & attentive staff - without being overbearing). The dining area is tastefully furnished and this helps create a relaxing & thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The prices are not the cheapest .... but you 'get what... More

I went with our local shares club for a meal. There were about 14 of us. Every course and every meal were excellent. We had a really good evening. The bonus was the very good live music. Apparently a regular thing on a Tuesday evening. I will certainly be back.
