Came here during a busy Saturday evening with lots of Christmas parties but service not affected. Special shout out for the young girl, Bethany, behind the bar .. always smiling and made us feel very welcome .. would return just for her hospitality and bubbly personality!

Went with friends last night and the only problem was there was only one piece of cod - but not a problem because nobody else wanted it! Fried Hake Fillet was very good and all of the food seemed well planned and prepared.

I had previously been to the Horse & Groom for lunch & really enjoyed the food & service was great. Our anniversary was coming up so we thought we'd go for a nice meal out. The food was excellent & couldn't fault any of it. The service on the whole was fine, the only negative was one of the bar... More

There are lots of great deals here! A group of us went for the 2 for 1 burger night and it was fantastic. Food is great and the portion size is huge! It's nice that they don't change the meal when they have an offer in. There is a good selection of wine and beer. Friendly service.

We visited the Horse and Groom Inn for a meal and a drink on Friday 11th July at around 7pm. We had not booked and the bar and restaurant were very busy but the waitress found us a small table in the bar and promptly brought us menus. We shared the large portion of home made nachos for a starter,... More

Picked this accommodation from Booking.com as needed a place to lay our heads after the CLA game fair. As it was very last minute, we were lucky to find anywhere, but what a find! Great hosts, great pub, fantastic food and very clean, comfortable rooms. Full English breakfast the next morning or smoked salmon and the most delicious scrambled eggs.... More

We stayed at the Horse and Groom for just one night before going to the CLA Game fair at Blenheim Palace. Arriving later than planned (thanks to various road related issues on the M25 & M40 no suprises there !!) we were warmly greeted and were under no pressure to get to our reserved table for dinner. Having refreshed, we... More

Been here on a number of occasions and the food is always good. Normally go for the burgers as they're always really nice. (Would like the option of sweet potato fries) Nice relaxed atmosphere, maybe a little to relaxed on the service sometimes, but as pubs go a very good all round experience.

I visited here with my sister, dad and our children. The pub has been newly refurbished and is lovely, the bar lady could not do enough to help us, they didn't have chicken nuggets on the menu but the chef coated chicken bread in lovely batter especially for our children! I had the smoked salmon and mackerel pate which was... More
