“Fantastic meal and first class service”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Always drive past this pub and thought it was time to pop in and try a meal.
Lovely welcome from the landlord and we were shown to our table. Nice menu and plenty to choose from, I went for the steak, it was well cooked and everything that came with it was tasty. The rest of the menu was varied, good staff that explained the dishes. Stayed on in the bar for a drink after the meal, made to feel very welcome. Great food, well priced and made to feel welcome, what more can you ask for!

“lovely food and good service”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Went for steak night on thursday to celebrate Fathers birthday. From the starters to main course the food was lovely and tasty. Ordered breaded mushrooms with garlic Mayo, goat cheese and red onion tart for starters, Beef & guiness pie and steak for mains... Steak was to die for, so tender and I recommend the Home made chips for a £1 extra. didn't have a dessert but having been before the desserts are lovely and some homemade.
staff were very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommend a visit

“Loved it!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Staying in Royal Britannia court hotel and didn't fancy the carvery. Went here with friends and discovered superb food. We all chose something different and all loved what we got! Service was friendly and fast, tasted amazing, huge portions and the drink was also exceptionally well priced. A total find and wouldn't hesitate to return. Can't imagine anyone being disappointed. We were there with another couple, one of whom is a hotel and restaurant manager and he couldn't say enough good things about it either. Met the chef later too and she was lovely, friendly and so delighted to get good feedback on her meals. I don't often write on here but felt the need to make the effort for this place :)

“Superb”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Had a 2 night stay in Coventry. Stumbled on the Horse and Jockey by chance and what a lucky find. Great food great atmosphere. Landlord and Landlady were brilliant. It was so good we went back for our second night and we will go back again despite being 45 minutes from our home. I especially recommend the bbq chicken (with bacon and cheese) fantastic. Good real ales too. Highly recommend this place.
