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

I've been to the Horse and Groom several times. Food is always excellent as is the service. Don't miss the Sunday roast - the beef is lovely. They make an excellent G&T. Great atmosphere and ample parking.

Lovely Sunday lunch. Really tasty food well cooked. Service was superb even though they were very busy. Lovely choice of wines and lovely atmosphere. Fires going which made it very cosy.

Another family visit for us to the Horse and Groom. The food is always good here and this time it was even better. We all felt it was the best meal we have had there so far (and we've been many times over the years). The Malaysian fish stew, Rabbit and ham hock casserole, Crispy beef salad and Sweet potato...

We were 5 adults and two children (8 and 7). Our 4 course lunch was excellent as was the service and care taken by Josh and Will. We had the table of our choice. We were particularly pleased that gratuities were not automatically added to our final bill but were left to us. We shall be booking again for Christmas... More

The Christmas menu sounded good and looked good too apart from the poor vegetarian who was given 6 gnocchi in sea of tomato sauce,okay for a quick lunch but inadequate for a Christmas meal; I have emailed the pub to express my disappointment but have had no reply so far,it is about time that some places move with the times;vegetarians...

Whenever we stay in Berkshire we dine at this restaurant where we have usually had great meals with good service. Unfortunatley this last visit bewtween Christmas and the New Year was very disappointing. The menu choice was not as good as before and the food generally was only average, along with the service. So compared to previous visits it was... More

We visited The Horse and Groom with my parents-in-law after a recommendation by a local shopkeeper. He was right. The pub was lovely - warm and inviting with a friendly welcome from the barman. There was a good choice of real ales and an amazing selection of gins and whiskeys. The service for Dinner was very good and the food... More
