Among the modern frontages of Wrexham town lies the Horse and Jockey, retaining is traditional charm of a typical 17th century building, one of very few left in the area. This 17th century timber framed building with its thatched roof occupies a central position in a busy pedestrianised shopping area. Originally a 16th century Cottage, has now been used as an Inn for many years. The Jockey started life as two premises, one privately owned and the other a small Beer House called "The Colliers". The pub took its current name in the late 1800's after a local champion jockey, Fred Archer

I stopped in for a pint or t bwo midday. There had been a local game and the lads were enthusiastic but respectful nonetheless. It was calm, local and I talked with a few regulars. Not trendy but part of Wales charm and I would go back.

Having read the description of this pub and seen a photo of it online, I thought I was prepared for the reality. However, walking down one of Wrexham's decidedly uninspiring and characterless main streets, it was still a bit of a jolt to suddenly see this building sitting cheek-by-jowl with bland modern shops. The whitewashed exterior and dark thatch stand out starkly. It is almost as if you are looking through a rip in time or the pub has been dropped in from some 'living museum'.

Once inside you get the feeling that this must be a buzzing and cosy place to enjoy a drink (and maybe a bite to eat) during the autumn or winter. It is a small establishment with nooks, stone-flagged floors and wood beams/panelling in abundance. Yes, it has character. At odds with this is the cross-section of modern pop/rock music played over the sound system (fortunately not too loud around lunchtime) as well as various posters advertising upcoming sports and other events, such as karaoke, at the pub.

We received a warm and friendly welcome. My wife was pleased to find there was decent dry white wine on offer as well as the choice of well-kept real ale for myself. It was heartening to overhear the landlady guiding a new recruit through the finer points of drawing a fresh barrel of ale through and talking about the importance of cleaning the lines. We cannot comment on the food since we dropped in only for a drink.

We certainly recommend a visit if you are in Wrexham.

Stopped in for lunch nice menu selection but settled on the chicken & stuffing roast dinner. The food arrived quickly and was stunning all fresh veg and generous portion of meat , even had a jug of extra gravy!. Staff were friendly and the service was great. Our 2nd visit in the last few months which will definitely increase. Lovely surroundings in the historic building!1
