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.  [Please note that due to the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines, karaoke and DJ entertainment is currently suspended. We look forward to recommencing entertainment as soon as we are allowed to do so.]

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. [Please note that due to the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines requiring each room to have exclusive use of showering facilities, only 3 rooms are currently available.]


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.
