A good stopping off point when cycling round Rutland Water. Can be very busy in summer at the weekends. Great snacks.

Once again we visited the horse and jockey on our way back from up north. The pie was incredible and well worth a detour! Friendly and hospitable staff made for a welcome break on a long journey. Have been here many times before and will continue to do so. Fantastic! And thank you!

As the saying goes good things come in small packages. This miniature pub restaurant is no exception. The interior is filled with oak and horse racing memorabilia and the air is lightly scented with smoke from the wood burner. The bar offers an array of premium draft drinks which friendly staff dutifully serve. Nice selection of traditional British food choices... More

We live locally so for ages, this has been a 'go to' pub, along with The Fox, when we want a decent meal out. We booked for a birthday lunch and, due to the number (8), were asked to pre-order main courses, which we did. We put on the email that we would sort the rest on the day (meaning... More
