This was our second family meal at the Horse & Groom and it was as good second time round as on our first visit. We selected it as a convenient location for a family get together with the kids travelling from the Cotswolds and needing somewhere which was easily accessible by road and with ample parking ... and the Horse...

Had a lovely lunch here today. Fish and chips were amazing. Massive portion and so fresh. Venison was amazing. Lovely chocolate brownie and fruit crumble. Freindly and happy staff. What a treat.

Generally I really like the Brunning & Price pubs - they offer a good selection of pub classics alongside more original dishes, are well run, and offer good value for money. On Sundays however the menu gets stripped down and traditional roasts added, so this time I decided to go with the roast chicken for one of the courses. What... More

Spur of the moment dinner. We hadn't booked but a nice table was found. Staff are brilliant. I've been to the Horse & Groom several times and the service is always superb. I had deep-fried brie with a pickled fennel and orange salad that was brilliant! Followed that with steak & ale pie. Piping hot and full of meat and... More

Both my husband and I like this pub but feel its time for the menu to be changed.It would be refreshing if a few different things were added.Also if it is cold outside wrap up as it always seems to be cold.

We booked a table for 8 quite last minute, luckily they managed to squeeze us in! We arrived early but our table was ready. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, at no time feeling rushed and were the last to leave. The service was great and they didn't do the usual 10% service charge which is a pet hate of... More
