In December 2008, Hoi Polloi Pub Co acquired The Horse & Jockey, a landmark pub in the South Manchester suburb of Chorlton, with a simple plan: to transform a much-loved but tired boozer into what Chorlton was crying out for - a family-friendly, female-friendly 'local place for local people' with great food, great beer, great wine and a relaxed, laid-back-almost-horizontal atmosphere. In other words, a pub for the noughties.
The Horse & Jockey couldn't be in safer hands. This is a long-term project for Peter Dalton, director of Hoi Polloi. Although no longer a 20-something party animal, the last thing he wanted to do with 'The Jockey' was to apply a corporate make-over and create a pretentious over-priced gastropub or a bland, soulless space. Whether it's an exhibition by a local artist on the walls, the book club monthly meeting in the corner, or simply a bunch of regulars catching up for the day, it's the local community that makes a great pub, and it's on them that we focus our efforts.
A sun trap in summer and a cozy, intimate place in winter, the setting couldn't be better - The Green is at the heart of Chorlton's conservation area, a stone's throw from vibrant Beech Road, with its multitude of bars, pubs, restaurants, boutiques and shops, and a short stroll from Chorlton Meadows and Water Park.
