Ash and Matt welcome you to the Horse & Jockey, Stancill Brewery Tap. Enjoy a real ale or locally-brewed lager in friendly pub surroundings.
Really welcoming, great pub, with excellent ambience. Actually owned by the local Stancill Brewery, so it always has the full range of their cask beers, properly kept -- the ginger being my fave; the blonde being a great staple -- and nice & cheap (£2.50 across the board).
I rang yesterday lunchtime to ask if the monthly folk club was on that night, to be answered by a super-friendly manageress (Ashley) who said she'd ring the guy who runs the club, and then she rang me back. Now that's service. So I turned up to a candle-lit lovely atmosphere and a great night all round.
Chatting to Ashley, it turns out she used to be a nurse, so she's sort-of transferred her "caring" skills to make a top job of running a pub -- this one only for the past six months, since Stancill took it on.
I'll be going every month to the folk club; shame it isn't on my doorstep to be my local.
