An air of decay and impending death hangs over the Horse & Groom, a so-called restaurant with rooms. Marco Pierre White, he of the stock cube, has removed his name from the inn sign outside but he's still the lease holder, it's still his pub, so must take the blame for what's happening here. He's got three unhappy people running... More

Met up with an old friend for dinner and a drink. It was Friday and barely populated. We both had fish and chips at restaurant prices. I have had rather better fish and chips in a newspaper from a takeaway.

We had a lovely stay in this old English country pub. Stephanie the young manageress was brilliant and is destined for bigger and better things. She was a multi-tasking all rounder that made every guest feel special. The place was good value and very quaint.

Shame on you Marco Pierre White. Shame on you who are posting positive reviews. We booked one night as part of a Cotswolds trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. One of the reasons was the MPW branding the other the 4.5 rating on TA. So we decided to drive the pretty way from home in Devon in order to... More

We booked a last minute deal which I really impressed with. Was a bit nervous of the reviews but me being rather fussy about hotels and food this place was perfect in hospitality and food!! The only flaw is that drinks were really expensive at the bar. The room was perfect not great for tall people due to low beams... More

We stayed overnight and were given a charming room in the attic with a lovely bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't help enough. The bar was cosy with a lovely open fire, friendly drinkers and, we were pleased to note, a number of dogs - always a good sign. We ate in the restaurant area which was quiet... More

Arrived to a drab dreary pub, with no beer on tap, no lime cordial and a poor lunch menu....no sandwiches, soup as one may expect. Two fresh oranges and a small mineral water came to over £5! Have visited this pub on several occasions, this will be my last. Sad day as used to be a lively pub with a... More

Marco Pierre White at his best.....take a reasonable pub , tart it up with lots of bijou bric a brac .Produce a menu well on the expensive side and then wonder why the place is empty with the atmosphere of a lending library..... The menu is aimed at the business traveller who is sticking his meal on expenses. Overtly complex... More
