Joseph Holt

The Horse & Jockey is one of Joseph Holt's flagship pubs, acquired in 2012 and given a complete transformation. The pub kitchen has received a much-needed extension to accommodate a more gastro food menu boasting the now popular hanging kebabs. It also offers an extended Bootleg Brewing Co. range which is housed inside the pub, meaning the pub now offers more craft beers with a deluxe deli counter.

This landmark pub in the leafy South Manchester suburb of Chorlton has been transformed from 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.

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.

This friendly pub is based in a 500 year old building, complete with its own micro brewery and a programme of community events, including beer festivals, farmers markets and open air concerts. 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. 

Please note, food serving times are from 11:30am to 10pm daily. For more information on our events, such as beer festivals, concerts, dog shows and farmer's market, please visit
