Horse & Jockey

A traditional and friendly town centre public house, situated in the heart of Gainsborough and believed to date back to 1748.  We serve a wide range of draught ales and lagers, ciders, spirits and other alcoholic and soft drinks to suit all tastes.  

The Horse & Jockey shows all major sports fixtures through Sky Sports, BT Sports and Freeview as well as hosting karaoke/DJ entertainment every Friday and Saturday.  

We also offer 5 newly refurbished letting rooms (some with en-suite) at very reasonable prices, ideal for both overnight stays or longer-term bookings.


We cater for a wide range of social occasions as well as more formal meetings and gatherings.  The old restaurant can be used as a function room (free of charge) and we can also put on a range of hot and cold snacks.  Just give us a call or send us an email to discuss your requirements further. 


Roseway Car Park (adjacent to the Horse & Jockey; opposite the KFC) has now re-opened following a refurbishment. SatNav postcode is: DN21 2BB. Parking is free from 6pm. 

Alternative parking is available at Lord Street Car Park (DN21 2DJ), Marshall's Yard Car Park (DN21 2NA), and street parking is also widely available.
