The food at the Horse and Groom is always freshly cooked and is certainly not your average pub grub. Would recommend a visit to this lovely village inn for a meal. It is family run and they are very friendly.

Sorry but I think this place is expensive and to have a chunk of gristle in ones beef has put me off going here again.

We came for Father's Day lunch and the lamb was the best I had ever tasted. It was cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed a truly lovely meal. It was just a shame that one of the waitress's did not have a positive attitude towards us, whether that was because we had a toddler with us, I don't know, but... More

I booked a table for 8 on a Saturday lunch time for my birthday recently. We were seated in the newly refurbished snug area which was lovely. The food was excellent, the service we received was fantastic and the atmosphere was a good combination of a restaurant within a country pub. I would definitely recommend the Horse and Groom Inn...

Five of us went to this pub/restaurant for Sunday lunch with a Mothers day menu (2 Mothers). The food was superb - the beef was the best that we had had for a very long time (3 had beef) - the pork was also excellent. A gift was provided for the Mothers and one child, on entry, which was worth... More

This place will take some beating for their Sunday roast beef lunch, certainly one of the best I have ever had - and I've had more than a few. Celebrated my daughter's birthday, lots of lovely Rioja and two courses for five of us was a very reasonable £170.00. I will certainly be going again!

Possible to fit us in for dinner please, I asked. If you can get here before 7:30 no trouble was the reply. We did. Service was excellent, beers good. fire roaring ! Three courses of good British grub, no skimping, no frills. Well served, well cooked and well eaten. £25/head with some beers. I will be back.
