Tried The Horse and Groom once more - yet again good food but the service although friendly was very slow. Disappointed.

Fabulous staff. They get 5* Good ale. Portion size was good. Plenty of veg on the plate (although everything was a tad salty for my liking). Fabulous tender lamb. Maybe £18.95 for a lamb Sunday roast was a bit much? Or maybe we don't know what Berkshire prices are like...

Very impressed with the Horse and Groom ; for the ambience, the food and the friendly staff. I came with a large party for lunch and, despite the restaurant being very busy, the service was excellent. There is a good choice from the menu from full lunches to a 'light bite'. I would recommend booking first and the pub does... More

Have had three meals here and each time the food has been excellent. It is good value as the portions are large. The staff are very friendly and courteous.

This is one of the best places to eat at any time of day on any day for consistency, service and variation. Regular lunch with a friend yesterday and all good with one exception; tomato and mozzarella salad to start was quite expensive for 3 slices of tomato that were sadly tasteless and 3 small bits of cheese. This is... More

Seven of us were there recently for a family get-together. Nice atmosphere and ambience. The menu is very good, lots to choose from. All the meals were large and everyone really enjoyed their food. The sharing camembert starter was a particular favourite for our group. The beef salad, burgers, steak and ale pie and steak were all very nice nice.... More

Took family here on a recent family visit. The Sunday lunch was very well cooked and the beef was tender. The service was excellent with attention to detail. We did find it expensive for a Sunday roast compared with other pubs but still it was a nice visit. The cost was 130 pounds for 4 adults and 1 child.

Great real ales (Brakspear, Hob goblin and about 3 other guest beers), All well kept. Food is excellent, so much so that we spent last Easter and the previous Christmas day there - superb. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. Not a huge menu, but I think that's good and what there is is lovely, never... More
