Calling All Foodies: The Horse & Jockey, Wilmslow Appoints Award Winning Chef
The appointment of the award winning chef and former hotelier Gary Peill and wife Kate to run the Horse & Jockey, Wilmslow will firmly put the recently refurbished eating house on the map as a magical and memorable culinary experience not to be missed.
Having held 9 consecutive AA rosettes Gary has built up a reputation for menu innovation working with local producers and suppliers. His latest creations include an eclectic range of tapas including mussels in a garlic, basil and white wine sauce; spicy meatballs dripping with melted cheese; sumptuous king prawns with garlic in a delicate Asian curry sauce and a Cheshire Cheese fritter with red onion marmalade.
For that moment when morsels are just not enough a freshly filled Peill's Pie of the Day will be offered, bursting with fillings such as Ham Hock, Chorizo and Leek, Sea Bass, Salmon, Basil and Brie or Belly Pork, Black Pudding and Baby Onions.
Traditional favourites such as fish and chips; steak and chips and the house burger all have the tantalizing touch of Gary's marinades, sauces and sides. Light bites, seasonal summer dishes and mouth-watering desserts are de rigueur and served throughout the day. 25p from every portion of chips benefits the local school.
“Food is my passion,” said Gary “and nothing delights me more than a satisfied customer walking out the door looking forward to their next visit.”
Throughout the day treats are in store. Freshly baked cakes accompany steaming, aromatic coffee. Homemade pork scratchings; honey glazed chipolatas and scotch eggs will take the edge off any rumbles. And throughout the week specialty nights offer a food and drink combination that is pleasant on the purse. A sumptuous Sunday Roast with all the trimmings is set to be a family hit at £9.95.
The interior has been transformed into cosy and creative nooks and spaces ideal for those intimate occasions or family gatherings. The informal layout enhances the eating experience throughout the different areas of the pub. Splashes of colour, decadent beautifully etched mirrors and a scattering of comfy cushions make the Horse & Jockey a warm, inviting local.
James Waddington, Managing Director of Inglenook Inns who own Horse & Jockey, said: “We have transformed the Horse & Jockey whilst retaining and enhancing its unique and individual personality. Our customers are our number one priority and by offering them a stylish, comfortable, accessible pub it enables us to remain at the heart of the community.”
