“Fabulous”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Fantastic food and service. The bread was delicious and I believe, along with the cake, made on the premises daily. Nothing too much trouble and fast service.

“A fine pasty”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Pasties are plentiful in Cornwall with many bakeries and pasty shops believing that theirs is the best. As a pasty connoisseur, I can say that the steak pasties at Horse and Jockey are indeed a fine pasty. They are large and well filled, yet well cooked too. I have found with some larger pasties that the potato and swede is not cooked in the middle, but these were just perfect. A nice bit of gravy in them, but that did cause the pasty to split by the crimping and I needed the double bag to keep it together. Polite and friendly service. Great location.

“Nice pasties”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We stopped in for pasties, which were good (and very generously sized) but a little too salty for my liking.
Very good cakes - also generously sized!

“Small and smelly”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

One of those places where you stop for a cuppa and wish you hadn't bothered. Small place with too many mismatched tables and chairs, so all sat on top of each other. We just had tea, which was made with cheap catering tea bags. To be fair the cakes and pastries looked OK.
Now the very worst bit - they fry in the cafe with zero ventilation and no extractor and so you leave with stinking hair, clothes etc and you've only had a cup of tea - yuk !!
