We went for an impromptu meal on a weekday evening. The choice of food was very good; I had peri peri chicken - very nice and my wife had an open lamb sandwich on flatbread - flatbread rather tough. Service started off very good, but towards the end when we were one of the last at the table you got the feeling we had been rather forgotten in the desire to pack up. Only a minor issue, but if they kept up the service level to the end it, I would have given a 4 star rating

Just recently moved to the area and thought we'd pop in to the local pub for a quick snifter. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw just how many different gin's they have and ciders (two of our favourite tipples). The food on offer is very good and we enjoyed the butchers platter for two which had the best pate I've ever had in my life. This is officially our favourite pub for daytime but when we went back in the evening, we found that there were several children dining late at night (9pm) and we didn't feel it was a "family" pub in the evening.

A friend and I dined at The Horse & Groom last Friday night and had a delightful evening. We received a warm welcome on arrival and the staff were friendly and hospitable throughout the evening. The pub was busy and had a great ambiance, not too loud so we could have easy conversation. There were plenty choices on the reasonably priced menu I had a job deciding between dishes, my choice (Piri Piri Chicken) was delicious and very tender. Looking forward to a return visit to try some of the other dishes!!

Had a nice lunch but service a bit slow and it wasn't busy. Not very attentive service it food OK if a bit pricey, but that reflects the area.Better across the road at Wyevale!
