Visited here on a visit to family in the UK. We used to use the restaurant many years ago, not been there in 20 years. Really good, cosy, welcoming, clean. Still children friendly as it always was. The food was fantastic, well cooked, good portions and well presented too. For the quality of food... read more

This is a country pub, but a quite large establishment with seemingly loads of space. However we had to book by 'phone around 5 days in advance as the online allocation had already been taken up and you get the impression that it is very popular and very busy. Our booking was comparatively early at 1200, at which time it... More

Two friends and I visited the Horse & Groom in Twyford, Hampshire, for lunch. The ambience of this public house is one of warmth and welcome. Mine host, who has something of David Jason about him, is welcoming and efficient. As far as we were able to tell, he has a good relationship with his staff. My friends had the... More

Would highly recommend the Horse & Groom. Food is always lovely and the staff are polite and helpful. Would like a few more options for veggies who are also gluten-free. You get the feeling that the staff care about the restaurant.

Really good food and not over priced. The staff were really friendly and gave you time to peruse the menu without you feeling rushed. Had Sunday lunch (pork) which was very nice followed by Apricot Bread and Butter Pudding which was superb. Overall a very nice restaurant and I would definitely return.

Welcoming staff, wide menu choice offering quality starters, lite bites and a great choice of mains. Burgers were well made and BiG, Malaysian chicken and Pork Loin were other dishes we sampled. We were well satisfied with the portions and too full for the extensive sweet menu! We will be back when visiting the area.

Visited for lunch - greeted by friendly staff and plenty of tales available to choose. Service was good and food was of a very good standard - the rump steak was perfectly cooked (rare) , large and very good flavour. Will return.

Went for lunch following positive reviews on here. The food was fantastic, all obviously prepared on site using good quality ingredients and beautifully cooked as well. Service was excellent and the meal was great value. I really couldn't fault it and will definitely go back. In fact, if Google hurry up and invent driverless cars so I could have a... More

We had Sunday lunch at the Horse and Groom after Brunning and Price offered us a three course meal there to make up for poor service at another one of their pubs. Despite being very busy the food was absolutely faultless. The portions are generous and I can say hand on heart this was the best fish and chips I've... More

This beautiful pub restaurant was once part of the awful Blebeckers chain, it has taken a while to be fully restored but is well worth taking time for a long relaxing stop. Warm and welcoming from your first step through the door this is really an oasis from the day, and if anybody knows this area they know what I... More
