The Horse and Jockey is a popular local pub situated in West Bromwich.  The site benefits from being surrounded by plenty of housing and is within walking distance of Sandwell hospital and the Hawthorns.  This is a one room operation and is well zoned with a bar, lounge and dining area. The conservatory leads to a large enclosed patio. The year to date growth trend is 4%, and there is still further potential to attract a more diverse customer base. The food is currently franchised.
