I started with a beautiful salad of Mixed melon, peaches, honey & Jambon ( Spanish cured ham). perfect for a hot day. My partner had King Crab with raw spinach... More

Mid week visit with some friends, chose the Horse and Jockey for location. On arrival we ordered drinks, Gordon's and slim line please - reply "We don't serve Gordon's here, we don't like it!" Sorry for having poor taste I wanted to reply. We ordered a simple meal, nothing to fancy as it was just a midweek supper. Two starters... More

Both were delicious. Followed up with "affogato" (piping hot shot of espresso poured over vanilla ice cream). Service was prompt and friendly. Would recommend to anyone visiting the... More

She was very pleased to find that there were very few things on the menu that couldn't be adapted for her. Unusually most of the sauces are made gluten free so she wasn't limited to... More
