We recently stayed here for 2 nights to visit a relative. Firstly, we received a warm welcome in what proved to be a very popular, busy traditional inn. The room was spotlessly clean & we ate on both evenings in the cosy, dog friendly bar. Breakfast was served in the smart dining room. Food was excellent with a good choice... More

10/10/16. This was my first stay at The H&G. Arriving after dark (@8.00pm), the welcome, rooms and food were excellent - which is just what you need anywhere, but especially when it's late in the day, and you have no idea what you might be walking into. Keep up the good work.

We didn't eat our evening meal in the pub, but had a very good breakfast, cooked to order. This hotel was a great find, we had a pleasant walk around the village.... More

I stopped in at The Horse and Groom whilst visiting with my son who is working and living locally. We did not use the hotel, so my review is not about the hotel or rooms, only the bar and restaurant. Anyone who loves real ale will know of the Hook Norton Brewery, and the good news is that not only... More
