Popped in for Friday lunch. Staff found us a table straight away and brought drinking water over with the menus without us asking for it. Attentive and friendly, but not over the top, service. Good food at a fair price. Will be back.

First time we have visited here and really enjoyed - food was superb and the staff were attentive and polite. A lot of covers that day but the team seemed to be well organised. Very impressed will be back.

We spent Valentines Evening here having a wonderful meal. It's not often we go out just the two of us but this is one of the very best pub/restaurants in the area. The food was amazing, very tasty and the menu offered a wide choice. The staff were very polite and attentive. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment to couples,... More

Superb and surprisingly huge pub on the main road. Great service for a larger party and busy, which is always a positive sign. Large menu, varied dishes from pub standards to high end choices. Burgers large and fresh, fish and chips almost too big to fit on plate. Great service, and the bill was split for each person to pay... More

Always good. Been coming here for over 30 years through different owners but always good. Fries were a bit dry but on the whole does what it says on the tin. Fair price, good atmosphere, nice staff. Recomended

Met a colleague for lunch recently. The pub is more a restaurant than pub, which was and is a good thing. A lovely roaring fire welcomed us and we were quickly led to a table and furnished with a menu and offered drinks. Everything was good from a service point of view and the food extremely good. Most certainly a... More

Have been here several times, sometimes lunch, sometimes dinner, but nearly always with my dog 😃 It is always busy, which on occasion means the service is a little slow, but the food is always excellent and the staff are always cheerful. Highly recommended.

Having looked at the reviews online we visited the Horse and Groom for Sunday lunch. It was average at best. The beef was a bit tough but not a bad flavour and the lamb was passable but neither were anything special. The vegetables were very disappointing - frozen peas, red cabbage and what I think was mashed carrot and swede.... More
