Usually do lunch and have always found them accommodating, even when busy (we are usually two or four people). Food is from a very good pub style menu, quality excellent and service always quick, cheerful and helpful. Toilets are impeccable. I particularly enjoy looking at the multiplicity of photographs, news clippings and period advertisements - give yourself a bit of... More

Saturday lunch, wonderful food but very slow service. We had to wait 50 minutes for our burgers. Once served the food was really good though.

Good selection of food with great service, very accommodating and good value. Good sized car park, located very near to three different garden centers, one of which has the Feathers and Fur falconry center in (Ladds Garden Village). It's an ideal place to eat before or after your vists.

Myself and my husband had dinner on Saturday night with another couple and we were seated on a lovely square table in a quiet part of the pub. We ordered the nicest bottle of Sauvingon Blanc I've ever tried- The Riverstone Ridge- a must try! The wine prices are very reasonable too! The food was divine, definitely the best pub... More

Don't ignore a brothers recommendation especially when it is for the Horse and Groom. Deceptive from the outside this is a large dining pub. Well staffed and with brilliant food do not drive by. Fir a bigger party call ahesd. For the hungry meat eater try the Butchers board starter to share. Any one of the main courses will suffice... More

I recently moved to Tywford and trying local pubs. It's a nice pub for local community. It is good for meeting friends for a drink and catch up.

Came here for a birthday meal late notice and had a table within a few minutes. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was brilliant and the squid starter was one of the best I've had. The steak burger was very good as we're the chips. Really apart from being a bit long to get our meal there is... More
