Really excellent place to eat. Very friendly staff. Food was very nice indeed. Tables are nicely spaced out so it is not overcrowded. Only gripe is that they could do with some slightly firmer, better upholstered and comfier chairs. Otherwise, hugely recommended.

Very good food and drinks friendly staff relaxing place to eat and have a drink. Can get very busy but that is a good sign of good food and drink well decorated inside, plenty of space to eat or drink outside to.

Simple, honest and welcoming. Here at the Horse & Groom we pride ourselves on our great selection of real ales, home cooked food and welcoming staff. Located at the end of the Brayford Wharf with a spacious car park and large garden, it's everything we believe a real pub should be.
