The best fish pie I’ve had in ages, lots of fresh fish, juicy prawns and a tasty cheesy mash topping! Staff are friendly and the wine and beer are good. Need I say more.......

Great local pub/restaurant and the food is always really good. It's busy with a wide range of customers and regularly enjoy our visits. We go for family birthdays with the kids and larger family groups. Had a great pre -Christmas meal there this year. Good for wheel chair users and they have always made sure table booking requests took this into account. Service is really good - they are friendly and efficient. Would recommend booking - online system efficient.

If you like a roast, this is the place to go! The Horse and Groom is a traditional looking pub and it’s clean, tidy and spacious. The food was excellent, we both had a mixed roast with beef, pork, chicken and all the trimmings. A decent pint of Breakspear was had and the waitress was attentive without being annoying. All in all, a good visit.

Had a really nice meal in the Horse and Groom on Saturday. The food was good all round, big portions, plenty of choice, and tasty. Perhaps not as fancy as other places but that suits me! The staff were really helpful and attentive when necessary and they were very accommodating of my 2 year old niece. Best crumble I've had in years!

From the busy road it looks inviting and there is ample parking.

Friendly, prompt service -Our table was booked online via the their booking tool and we arrived early, this was not a problem and we were quickly seated. Music- The atmosphere is great, clean, excellent choice of beers and wine, long bar.
The lunch menu had a lot to choose from, in fact I changed my mind quite a few times especially when the waiter walked past with a huge serving of fish and chips - smelt and looked amazing.

We ordered Baked Camembert with garlic and thyme, fresh bread and the Steak burgers with cheese and bacon, chips and coleslaw ( tasty homemade due to the thickness of them, not fatty) served in a brioche bun, not the seeding type of bun that falls apart when you take a bite. All presented great and served on wooden boards.

Unfortunately we were too full to order any desserts, will try them next time.

Good for a quick lunch and also a very nice place for an evening meal ( which we will try next time)

Little touches like Reading glasses on the side for those who want to borrow. Fresh flowers dotted around in vases.
Clean toilets- this is a must for us ladies, plants nice touch, nice soap. Well stocked
Meal vouchers - You receive a meal ticket for each main course purchased. Redeem six Meal Tickets to claim £12 off the price of your chosen main meal (Mon-
Thurs) Great idea.

We will defiantly be going back.
