Horse & Jockey British Pub Restaurant Review

: While there are quite a few pubs in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, not many serve a full high tea (with at least a 24-hour advance notice). Tea is served on decorated lace tablecloths in four courses. First, there are sausage rolls, then finger sandwiches followed by scones with cream and jam, and, finally, a homemade trifle. Oh, yes, and tea --- a high-quality, varied selection. The pub also specializes in a traditional British dinner on Sundays: a choice of roast pork, roast beef or lamb with mashed potatoes, three vegetables, gravy and salad. Savory pies (cottage, steak and kidney and fish) are another big item on the menu, as well as fish ‘n' chips (cod with a beer batter that can be grilled, fried or even broiled, to order). We also suggest the ploughman's lunch --- traditional sharp cheddar cheese, pickles and a chunk of crispy bread, plus a salad garnish. With 16 beers on tap, there are lots of fresh choices. If you're a fan of British darts, check out the dart team night on Thursday; and if you're less dexterous but nimble of mind, there's trivia night each Tuesday.
