The Horse and Groom in Wareham is a traditional English pub, totally refurbished in 2013 with a clean and fresh exterior and light and airy interior. Under new management since 1st July 2015, its new landlady Kelly and her team offer a warm and friendly welcome to locals and visitors alike. Well behaved dogs (and horses!) Are welcome too. The new menu includes lite bites including filled baguettes, traditional pub favourites including ploughman's lunches and kids meals from when we open at midday through to about 7pm every day. Food may be enjoyed in our pleasant beer garden or at tables in our front room. Other facilities include a pool room, juke box, and traditional pub games including Darts and Shove-a-penny.

We are really sorry that you had a negative experience at the Horse & Groom. Kelly the landlady has met with her staff, and is disappointed that you did not feel able to tell her or her staff at the time of your visit that you were unhappy with the standard of food that day.
