Last time I attended this Inn I was very disappointed 😞 so I agreed to go again with trepidation HOWEVER I would like to say this time the food was wonderful and hot even though they were serving approximately 40 of us. I had for starter goats cheese and red onion crouton, basil pesto dressing and salad leaves... Followed by... More

I went with my Mum and a friend for dinner on a Friday evening. We had to keep changing our reservation for various reasons, but they were patient and helpful. The meal was really fabulous- I had steak which was perfectly cooked and tender. The young waiter was just lovely, so friendly and accommodating. After I had paid, I was... More

This was my first visit to the Horse and Groom and I wasn't disappointed! 6 adults and one older child were there for mother in laws birthday celebrations. We all said how delicious the food was with a wide range of choices, generous kids portions and great service. We will be back!

There were good and bad points concerning the meal.The main course tasted good for the majority of guests but some had to wait a long time for... More

Arrived here with my friend Monday after a 6 mile trip at approx 8.40pm. On there website they state that the kitchen is open until 9pm. After asking whether they are still serving food, they said no but however did apologise. However, I frequent a lot of the top restaurants in the area and I'm normally dressed a lot more... More

Hi Jamie, I am sorry that you had a wasted journey on Monday this week. We normally serve until 9pm however if it is very quiet then we may close 15-20 early so that we are not keeping staff on unnecessarily. Monday was the quietest night for some time hence the early closure. If you woul like to email me... More

We required over night accommodation before attending a private function locally. We were very pleased with our room, and we were made welcome from the moment we arrived. We were very pleased to return on the Sunday for lunch before we left. As well as Sunday roasts being available, so was the full menu which we appreciated. If we ever... More

We stayed one night in a double room with a small en-suite shower room. The accommodation and amenities provided were good and the bed comfortable. The location is quiet and we slept well. Breakfast was very good with hot dishes cooked to order. Service efficient and friendly. We did not dine in the pub as we were visiting friends, but... More

Stayed for two nights on our way back from a family visit down south. Lovely warm friendly welcome, superb accommodation, all the usual amenities, excellent food and very helpful staff. Just the tonic for a peaceful stay after a hectic London visit. We had a lovely trip around part of the Cotswolds which was within easy reach. Would highly recommend... More

I am sure this is a lovely Inn and the positive reviews would suggest so, which is why I chose to stay here. I am equally sure the food is good and the bedrooms pleasant. I was far from home on business and booked the Horse and Groom via Booking.com, which I use several times a week as their service... More

I am sorry that you had such a poor experience and this is clearly not the kind of service that we would normally deliver. We have instigated a new system to ensure that double-bookings do not occur and I have investigated the incident on the evening you arrived. More

Had a wonderful Sunday lunch 25.10.15. for our 1st Wedding Anniversary. Great food and exceptional service - loved it!. This is our favourite place to eat, nothing is ever too much trouble. I requested our favourite dessert in advance, chocolate and cherry trifle - to die for!.
