Horse & Jockey Waddington

Charming & Traditional Village Centre Pub

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 30,000 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 destination pub to be able to relax and socialise in.

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. This will ensure the pub will appeal to a truly diverse demographic while maintaining its historic character throughout. 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. All of the above will convert this forgotten gem into a new lively space.

Experienced Food & Drinks Operator Required

All we're missing is the right person to take it forward. Could this be you?
