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 lagers, ciders, spirits, bottled beer 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 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 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 pop inside to discuss your requirements further.
