Quinno _ left this review about The Horse & Jockey

Long, attractive thatched building (C.17th) that stands out in the blandness of Wrecsam town centre. The interior goes a fair way to living up to expectations - a very traditional feel open plan area at the front, a warren of little nooks and crannies with an almost lounge at the end with banquettes, exposed brick and vaulted ceiling. Sadly this nice little pub was spoilt by an awful morose barmaid, terrible music and a general feel of despair. We wondered whether the regulars might live in the banquettes like coffins, so numerous were they before midday. Three pumps with two on, Wychwood Dirty Tackle and a pretty good Tetley (NBSS 3.5). It’s a bit of a default visit in the context of the town I guess.

A really nice pub right in the shopping area of Wrexham. Real ales available. Had a standard issue old bloke moaning away in the corner last time I was in. Also has low beams. Ideal for cracking your head against if you're not paying attention.

If you ever visit wrexham for the first time, make your way first to this very old welsh pub in the town centre, it looks out of place in a busy town like wrexham, looks as if it should be in a little village, its thatched roof and low ceilings inside the building, give the place a unique atmosphere, nice beer and friendly staff, a couple have worked there for nearly twenty years.
