Another new couple at the Horse & Groom so thought I'd try it for Sunday lunch and so glad I did - faultless. Roaring fire together with a plate groaning with delicious food and a nice glass of red - didn't want to leave. Worth...More

Really enjoyed having lunch here. Made to feel very welcome by a really polite and tentative young lady. The food was wonderful and lots of it. A superb visit, look forward to going back.
