Been before and reviewed before but just left and felt it had been so good I had to just say that this place is brilliant. The steaks are always perfectly cooked. All meals chosen off menu cooked to the same high quality. Puddings are delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful and choice of beers for my husband varied and always... More

Good night. All in aid of a great charity. Hope this becomes an annual event. Maybe better on a Friday but was still great fun.

We came here for an impromptu dinner last Monday evening and were happy to get a table as we hadn't booked. Staff were friendly but obviously overstretched as we had a bit of a wait before our order was taken. There was then a rather long wait (I had almost finished my second drink by the time the food arrived)... More

Very disappointed, the food was nice and tasty but small portions, hubby and I had the beef which was pink and perfectly cooked, roast veg was rock hard and gravy as thin as water. Had to pay an extra £1 each for a small spoonful of mashed potatoes. Should have been better for £11.95+£1 each.

We thought that this pub looked really great with it's food menu, looked good. But we were waiting for our meal for 45 to fifty minutes just the 2 of us. The Pub catered for large parties,which is good, if you remember that two are just important too Especially when the parties who come in later than you get served... More

Popped in here for Sunday lunch after a short walk along the Brayford. Very busy so a reservation is necessary, especially Sunday. Excellent choice on the Sunday roast menu - beef, lamb, pork or vegetarian. Our meals were served promptly and politely and accompanied with all the usual trimmings - three of our party chose the roast beef which was... More

We were recommended this pub by our hotel. We went on a Saturday night (needed to book, it was packed), and initially the service was very good. Starters were good, a limited selection, but enough. For the main course, we had steak which was perfectly cooked, and the liver and bacon was very good with sides included in the meal... More

First time at this venue and I wasn't overly impressed. The menu looked good and so did the food as it was being brought out so my friends and I looked forward to our meals. We had a short wait as it was quite busy, this was fine as we had a few drinks. When the food did arrive it... More

Prior to our visit to Lincoln I had noticed this pub on TA & was keen to try it out, it was difficult to persuade my wife but we went & she agreed it was a great choice, friendly staff, good beer, wine & food, we were lucky to get a table so maybe best to book ahead.

Thank PapaYM

Simple, honest and welcoming. Here at the Horse & Groom we pride ourselves on our great selection of real ales, home cooked food and welcoming staff. Located at the end of the Brayford Wharf with a spacious car park and large garden, it's everything we believe a real pub should be.
