Mixed reviews in trip advisor so wasn’t quite sure what to expect....! Booked a table for 3 over the phone, very efficient, enthusiastic and helpful staff. Walking into the bar did feel a bit like a ‘drinkers pub’, however we were greeted cheerfully and shown...More

I can't fault the Horse & Groom. The food is always superb, they serve a cracking pint of ale and we always get an extremely warm welcome. It's the perfect example of what an English pub should be.

We’ve visited this lovely village pub twice since September to enjoy the fantastic cooking and warm, friendly atmosphere. The quality of the food is better than many 5 star hotel and restaurants I’ve been to without the prices to match. Highly recommended, but make sure...More
