The Horse and Jockey  

In 1824 the pub was known as "The Hanging Gate" probably in reference to the toll gate on the Bentley Road. In 1952 Sir William Dugdale rode his horse Cloncarrig in the Grand National and this was depicted in a painting on the front of the pub. It was said that the picture was covered over by the picture of an anonymous horse and jockey that we see today.

The Pub offers an extensive beer garden (a real sun-trap) where customers can enjoy a pint of real ale whilst the garden offers an outdoor play area with pet chickens and rabbits to amuse the children.

The pub boasts a beautiful 18th century barn conversion restaurant with original beams and exposed brickwork that is available to hire for weddings and private parties, the building was awarded with a Civil Award by North Warwickshire Borough Council, an extensive menu is offered six days-a-week serving traditional home cooked food and that all essential Sunday Carvery.
