My partner and I dropped in at the Horse and Jockey on our way back from a day out at Matlock as we were peckish and thought it looked very nice! We were not disappointed. We were welcomed by staff who could not do enough for us, our server was absolutely lovely, very attentive without being overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble. We ordered starters which were a lovely size, perfect to nibble on, and our mains arrived shortly after. My other half can recommend the halloumi, and I enjoyed the whitebait! Something that did come as a surprise was the fact that the meal came sitting on the dipping sauce when we would have preferred the sauce in a separate bowl, but that’s just our personal preference! My partner had the Sunday roast, and I had the spicy salmon burger. There were lots of options for vegetarians which was refreshing to see! Another slight criticism (which again is down to personal preference) was that the roast meat was kind of piled onto the veg, as was the mash, which made some of the food a little soggy. The portion sizes were unbelievable, and we witnessed what may well be the worlds biggest ice cream sundae be delivered to a neighbouring table! The food is definitely quality AND quantity, and taste is clearly an absolute priority. Everything we ate was flavourful and very well cooked, and the service was easily some of the best I’ve ever had. The price of the drinks is very reasonable and the price of the food is exceptionally good considering the sheer amount you get for your money. Real bang for your buck. All in all this place was a wonderful little find, and we can’t wait to return (and maybe sample one of those sundaes if we’re feeling brave!). I wish this was my local!

We booked the “tap room” for my wife’s 50th birthday party and were really pleased. The room was just right for 60 people, able to play our music through the premises sound system, we had a photo slideshow on the big screen, our own bar in the room, lots of seating and still room to dance. The buffet was good value and very, very tasty. Staff were really helpful, from booking and organising to those on hand on the night, especially the manager Brandon. Thanks for helping make it a special night.

We have stayed here twice and on both occasions we cannot fault this establishment. The rooms are clean, the beds really comfortable, lovely pillows! Everything is spanking new and state of the art, the Air con/heating works well, the shower was amazing! The bar is a little stark but welcoming, the food is fantastic, we had the Luxury Getaway deal which included breakfast, 3 course meal and wine, there was no set meal for this, like you get in some inclusive deals, you could order anything off the menu, what amazing value for money. Poached eggs with smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce for breakfast, yum! The staff are welcoming and chatty, all in all a great experience.
