Amazing pub

This is definitely a pub you must visit, I live in the heart of the Cotswold kingham, so have dined in many of the finest places around the area. This pub is by far the best for service and food, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere highly recommended and value for money. In other words you don't feel... read more

No reservation but got a table in the bar. Friendly, friendly barman who chalks the fancy menu on large blackboard and updates as specials evaporate. Like racing odds. Local craft beers. This centuries old inn is owned by the chef. We had guinea field breast, with sweet potato; and pork chop on a bed of mushrooms with a mint paté,... More

You always know that when somewhere is busy and has a good reputation, it is well-justified. This is very true of the Horse and Groom. We've been a few times now, and have eaten in both the bar and the restaurant area. The menu is exactly the same, the only difference being that you can reserve a table in the... More

This a fantastic pub with great food with great taste. The was a good range of quality local beer. The pub is cosy yet and traditional yet modern and fresh. Service is excellent and friendly. Highly recommended and I am very fussy!

What can I say! This place is wonderful. The staff are amazinly friendly, the garden is stunning, and the food fabulous. They grow loads of their own produce, use lots of other small and local suppliers, and are generally amazing. Not to be missed. Oh,and the rooms are fabulous too!

It is necessary to pre book a table, even midweek and at lunchtime. The bar staff are welcoming and helpful. The menu is full of courses using produce from the garden. The meat was tender and tasty and the potato dauphinois was amazing. I wish this pub was near my home then I could work my way through the menu.

The parking "on-the-hill" is rather dicey on a busy night but this well-reviewed pub is a place worth visiting. Large dining area, tables well-spaced. Friendly hosts take meal orders at the bar. They really mean it when they say their on line menus are just samples. You will probably find something completely different on the chalkboard. It's hard, therefore, to... More

We called ahead to book a table travelling South and we're glad we did as it was almost full. The service was excellent and the food was superb, cannot praise it highly enough. If we had been staying nearby we would have returned.

This was an ideal place to meet up for a family lunch. We had booked a table and were given a warm welcome. The dining room is light and spacious and you don't feel crowded in. There was an excellent choice from the blackboard menu and everyone enjoyed their food. My glass of sauvignon blanc was very drinkable. The service... More
