The Horse & Jockey Information


Excellent location in the heart of Gainsborough town centre. A traditional and friendly pub ideal for an overnight stay or longer-term bookings. We offer five letting rooms at reasonable prices (including ensuite rooms), ideal for those on a budget and perfect for both overnight stays or longer-term bookings. Please note that the pub is open from 11am every day, until Midnight from Sunday to Thursday and until 1am on Friday and Saturday. Busy trading periods are usually Friday and Saturday night with karaoke/DJ entertainment every week, and therefore the main bar can be quite busy at these times. **Note that it will generally not be possible to check-in outside of the pub opening times, however please call to discuss if required. You will however have 24/7 access to your room after checking in.** Free high-speed WiFi is available in the main bar areas and restaurant, and in some of the rooms (eg not in the double ensuite room). Each room includes a TV with Freeview channels, sink and tea and coffee making facilities. The bar serves a wide range of draught beers, ciders, spirits and other alcoholic and soft drinks to suit all tastes. The Horse & Jockey shows all major sports fixtures on Sky Sports, BT Sports and Freeview. ***Card payments: We accept all Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards, as well as Amex and Diners cards. Payment can be made online via our booking system, on the phone, or in person at the pub. Full VAT invoices can be provided on request. ***
