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

Fantastic stay, from the moment we arrived till we left. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the pub atmosphere was lovely. The food, both the evening meal and breakfast, was exceptional and served in lovely rooms (we had our evening meal in the snug and breakfast in the restaurant). The room were very comfortable and individual, unlike... More

Stayed just for one night as we were passing through. Lovely little country pub. Room 3 was great-very big and a huge bathroom. Dinner was faultless and the steak burger amazing. Breakfast again faultless and beautiful. Staff were so helpful and friendly. Great find!

Stayed here for 2 nights as a base for Silverstone (about 40 mins drive). What an excellent find. The service was outstanding and I felt that nothing would be too much trouble. Room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. It even had the must have of a plug socket by the bed which is essential these days for overnight charging... More

We visited for a quick snack on 20 th June 2016. Started with olives and bread with balsamic vinegar and oil followed by burgers,a good choice. We will certainly return with friends for a steak and wine offer. A nice surprise to find a real pub with a nice atmosphere.
