We ate here for a Sunday lunchtime and were really impressed. It's a lovely light restaurant area inside looking out over the oub garden, and nicely decorated for Christmas. We all had the sunday roast (which had different meat options) and thought it was excellent quality and very tasty, with very generous servings. Amazed it was only £10 for a... More

Last night I held my 40th birthday party at the Horse & Groom. I cannot thank Karen and her excellent team enough for making my special birthday even more special. I wanted an Italian themed buffet, Matt and the team in the Kitchen listened to every detail I wanted and he more than delivered that! The food was excellent, every... More

There was a beer festival, sort of, so no bitter available inside. Took ten minutes to get served so wasn't going to go outside to start again. Ordered lager. Wife tried outside..but nobody was serving outside. There were only three staff, trying hard, and they weren't coping. Menu was brief, not much more than cheese on toast or burger. "Burger"... More

We invited friends over and decided to use the Horse and Groom as our meeting point. However our friends older teenage children checked out the Horse and Groom on their website, and weren't over enthused by the menu! Our family couldn't understand it as we've eaten here numerous times and thought the menu was quite good. The numbers dwindled down... More

We ate here twice last week because we had a cottage 100 yards away. It was no better than Ok to be honest. The menu was uninspiring and felt boring on the second visit. The bread on the chicken burger was half stale. The dauphinoise potatoes were very good, the veg cooked well but the lamb shank was a bit... More

We returned to this pub for the 10th time in as many years because I heard there was a new manager hoped the food would have improved. My wife and I were not looking for a lot but the Roast Hog was indifferent, too much skin and minimum meat, the bap was a pathetic piece of stodge, but the crackling... More

Went to the Doom & Gloom for three evening meals (kitchen closes at 6pm on a Sunday). Typical pub atmosphere with a good staff. Kitchen very accommodating to my the dietary requirements of my wife. Good English type food served with a good English pint (or two!) Stop by for a coffee, lunch or an evening meal - you wont... More

Known locally as Doom & Gloom, this pub seems doomed to bad management, after a brief spell a few months ago when it improved due to a good chef, now gone, sadly. Walked out as the menu had no veggie mains (1970s attitude and service). Great welcome and veg options found nearby at the Fighting Cocks, Godshill. It is a... More

After completing an historical architectural survey of the New Forest village of Woodgreen we stopped by the horse and groom pub for lunch. The pub interior was traditional, not mucked around with by the London style police. The ale was excellent and the lunches were great! The unexpected "Croque Monsieur" on the menu was really light and tasty. Higher management... More

Booked a table for sunday 7 September. Arrived, greeted with a smile and shown to dingy table between loos and main restaurant, asked for better table & shown one in restaurant which only had one table occupied - lots of room. Looked at menu selected from it; no-one came, eventually my husband went to bar to order! Both of us... More
