This could be a lovely pub but sadly it is in dire need of a refurb, the seats had seen better days as they were split and the stuffing was coming out. The tables were sticky even though they had been wiped, when I put...my arms on the table they stuck so did my phone. The meals were pretty average but value for money.More

Rather shocked to see no acknowledgment of Covid chances. We weren’t asked for contact details for check and trace when eating in, no hand sanitiser, no signs for social distancing, drinkers sitting around both bars. Felt exactly like going into a bar in 2019 Food...for 4 arrived rather spread out over a number if minutes. It was as if half the table had been forgotten. Food quality generally below average. Wasn’t expecting anything fancy but all dishes where somewhat underwhelming which is a real shame given the beautiful location. The pub would be super convenient for our week long stay here but won’t be returning.More

We stay every year in Tideswell and the Jockey is always on our list of places to eat & drink and I have previously left good reviews. However in the post covid era things in this pub are not as they should be. No track...and trace info was taken. People are congregating around the bar and so on. The worst part is the excessive rowdiness going on outside. The pub take no interest in asking their outside guests to drink up and move on when it's closing time and the partying (including fights, arguments and so on) continues into the smaĺl hours. This is in a residential area. Poor show on all counts. We declined to eat there.More

Marie and the staff were very welcoming, loved the room with the fire it was nice and cosy. It would be nice if there was music in the lounge area or a TV and a nice fire as it got very busy in the room...with the fire we are hoping to pop in again in the summer.More

Having previously stayed at this accommodation twice before we booked back in May 2 rooms for a Christmas weekend away with friends. On arrival we were asked to pay for the rooms and was quoted a higher amount than what was quoted in our confirmation...email. On querying it we were shown the booking in the diary to which we advised that the name we were being shown wasn't ours. The young man who dealt with us then advised he would need to speak to the Manager and we were asked to take a seat. After 20 minutes of being kept waiting the Manageress finally came over after having an argument with the young man which made us all feel very uncomfortable and long story short advised that they were unable to accommodate us as they were full and as they had only taken over in August and had no records prior to this and that this has happened quite a few times. If that was the case why didn't she come straight over and apologise and explain this to us? We then asked if this has happened a few times can she recommend somewhere for us to stay close by to which the answer was 'get on google'. We were disappointed that no assistance was offered in finding further accommodation or even use of WIFI and a drink while we searched. We where then left with the task of finding somewhere else at 4pm in the afternoon. I feel I can't give a true rating as didn't stay so you may find you have a lovely stay. Unfortunately we will no longer be visiting this pub due to the issues above.More

A group of 8 of us ate an evening meal at the Horse and Jockey after attending the firework display in Tideswell on 2nd November 2019. I ordered beef lasagne with chips, salad and garlic bread. The lasagne was dry and rubbery, the chips came...with potato skin on the ends and the waitress didn't bring the garlic bread until I asked for it. A couple of years ago I had eaten chips with skins on somewhere else but I would never eat them again as the potato skins gave me indigestion and I had stomach ache all night. I told the waitress that the chef had forgotten to peel the potatoes before cooking the chips. I said that the chips would give me indigestion so I asked them to cook some more chips but peel the potatoes first. They said that's how they come and they couldn't provide any other chips. I said that there is nothing on the menu to say that the chips have skins on. I cut the skin off the ends of each chip and it took me a long time to eat them. If I hadn't been with a group of friends I would have rejected the whole meal and asked for a full refund. They need to buy a potato peeler and train the chef how to use it. They did have a live band that we weren't expecting so I am giving them 2* instead of 1*.More

Under new management from Summer 2019 and so much better. Marie and her team are doing a great job, very friendly and determined to offer locals and visitors a warm welcome with good food and fine beers. There was a good selection of gin too!...Food was home cooked; loved the trio of sausages braised in mustard and onion gravy and the steak burger was excellent too. Do go to support her and we wish Marie all the best for a very successful future.More
