    We were welcomed in and shown to our table. The room was lovely and warm. Our menus were given out and our drinks order taken promptly. The drinks arrived quickly but it was a while before our food order arrived. From that point on, no member of staff approached us until our table was cleared. I couldn’t catch anyone’s eye to order more drinks. Other than that the steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and were tender and delicious

    We were greeted promptly and shown our table and given the menus and asked if we wanted drinks which we ordered after a while ordered food the food arrived and it was very nice but after that the staff seemed to loose interest in us and we had too get attention by shouting for another drink (I noticed other customers going to the bar for drinks it's waiter/ess service that's what you get a tip for) and we wasn't asked if we would like desserts so no tip.

    The service was excellent and the food was well-presented. I had beefcheek bourguignon, which was a first for me (with respect to the beef cheek). I would have preferred a different cut of beef, but this is entirely a personal preference and does not reflect on the quality or the standard of the restaurant. I have been here before, and will definitely go again.

    We have been to this gastro pub several times and have always found it enjoyable. However, on this occasion the food on the specials board was not up to the standard we have had in the past. Good size portions but not very flavoursome. Won't stop me going back but will be more selective from the menu

    Went to the Horse & Jockey as my dad moved to Wessington and raves about the Sunday roasts, first time visiting and won’t be the last. The pub/restaurant is so modern and welcoming, staff were attentive and polite all the way through the visit. 3 of us ordered the butchers block, amazing! Huggggee portion, would definitely recommend the place to anybody, can’t wait to go again to give the rest of the menu a try.

    Never visited before it was recommended by a friend who had been for Sunday lunch and said it was beautiful and great value for money. Visited on June 18th with two friends. Food arrived beautifully presented and hot. The staff are second to none. Three meals and several large glasses of wine, when the bill arrived we were pleasantly surprised. My first visit but not my last

    First time I have eaten here. The food was excellent. Service very efficient, and it was nice not to rushed. The staff were very accommodating when we asked to be moved to another table, as a member of our party has a hearing defect. Will definitely be returning.

    Always excellent food and service. Proposed to my girlfriend and as I made the staff aware, they seated us in a nice quiet spot. When she said yes the gave us complimentary drinks and a dessert board saying "congrats" in toffee sauce. Very nice touch which made it all even more special. Thank you so much. Our favourite restaurant

    I booked a table for four of us a while ago for breakfast. We have had excellent breakfasts in the past there & thought it would be an excellent choice for our Bavarian visitors to join us before flying back home. The food was excellent as ever. However I was very disappointed to be taken to our table in the TV & games room of the pub. We informed the waitress we had booked but were informed as we weren’t staying overnight at the Horse & Jockey we couldn’t eat in the restaurant area. Previously when we’ve booked for breakfast we’ve always eaten in the restaurant & the table has been set in preparation. Our guests enjoyed the food - but I felt after seeing the almost empty restaurant that it was a little inflexible to seat us where we were.

    Convenient location, friendly staff, good that they offer more on a Sunday than just roasts and are serving food into the evening. Would be a nice place to sit outside on a sunny day. Range of wines and beers.
