Extensive Refurbishment

An extensive refurbishment will transform The Horse & Jockey into a quality pub for customers to enjoy. The interior and exterior will receive major works and renovations to modernise the pub with cosy, natural finishes. The pubs kitchen will also undergo an overhaul with a new fit out. The pub will be decorated in the style of a great country pub, with some twists and nods to The Horse & Jockey name and will also pay tribute to RAF Waddington.

Externally we will be redecorating the garden, with new signage and a great rear outdoor patio area with some Birra Moretti Branded Sheds (Subject to planning) to offer a premium and quality external drinking and dining area for the warmer months.


Excellent Location 

The Horse & Jockey is situated in a prime position facing the old market square, in the village centre of Waddington. With good access links, The Horse & Jockey is located just one mile away from RAF Waddington Air Base. As a result, the pub benefits from 6,600 adults living within a one-mile radius. Along with this, the pub has 30k people living within a ten-minute drive and has good Lincoln and Grantham bus links. This excellent location means that there will be a high number of visitors looking for a destinational pub to be able to relax and socialise in.


Multiple Income Streams

The Horse & Jockey has the opportunity to enjoy multiple income streams with great bar trade, a destinational food offer with approximately 138 covers, four letting rooms and a great outdoor area with decking space and a fire pit.
