My family and I had a lovely lunch time meal at the Horse and Groom today.
The food was delicious and the portion size was good.
Nice beer garden overlooking fields, friendly staff.

Food disappointing. The steak was very tough and fatty. The rest of the meal was satisfactory.Usually enjoy the meal here but this was not up to standard

Hadn't been to the the Horse and Groom for a number of years. Friends said it was good, so we went out with them.
It's changed and changed very much for the better.
Caroline, our waitress, was polite, personable, patient and professional. A good start.
There are some good ales on tap so the two blokes had a pint of ale. The two ladies had a non-alcoholic cocktail (which they said was excellent)
Just two courses - the main course was slow-roasted pork for two of us (with the inevitable thrice cook chips) and cod and chips for the other two. The pork was very good and sat on a bed of cabbage, peas and bacon. The chips, by the way were excellent. The portion of cod was of a good size.
The mini-desserts with coffee were fine, and so was the apple pie and custard; so I'm told. However, the chocolate torte was a chocoholics delight!
And the cost was very fair for good food.
Excellent value for money. And I think it's worth another visit soon.
Well done for the changes - they've worked!

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here recently with the family.
Although the pub was relatively busy the staff were still very attentive and looked after us.
The food was wholesome British pub food and was well presented and very enjoyable, we had three different meals and everybody enjoyed what they ate.
