Description: With all the laidback charm of a true Cotswolds country pub, at the Horse and Groom we pride ourselves on our friendly service, award-winning food and drink and sumptuous B&B accommodation in individually styled bedrooms. Located in the heart of Bourton on the Hill, here you can retreat for a leisurely meal, stop by for a drink and stay over for a relaxing break. Our light and airy bar is well stocked with real ales and wines and the beautifully restored dining room, with its log fire blazing in the winter makes a welcoming setting in which to enjoy our exquisite classic British cuisine with a modern twist.

“Lovely weekend”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We came here based on the very good reviews on Trip advisor. We had the fish and chips and the beef pie. Simply delicious and absolutely lovely.

We shared the treacle tart which was no doubt the best treacle tart we have ever tasted. The service was friendly and efficient.

A place to come back to if ever in the area again.

“Wonderful friendly pub”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

We were looking for a place to stay with good food for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year and this fitted the bill perfectly. Our room was very comfortable with nice extra touches such as fresh milk delivered to our door every evening, home made flapjacks and nice toiletries. The breakfast was made from locally sourced produce including a bottle of milk from a local dairy where all the cows are known by their names. Our dinners included sea bass with Moroccan carrot puree and pomegranate dressing and local pigeon breast with celeriac puree and chorizo and thyme jus...all absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and served with a smile. The staff at the horse and groom could not have been more friendly and welcoming and we hope to return in the summer in order to spend more time out in the surrounding countryside.

“Excellent find!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We made the 30 mile journey to this wonderful gastropub having found it online. It was fortunate we had booked as there were no spare tables. The service was excellent and only surpassed by the wonderful food we were served. We were passing some weeks later and popped in on the off chance they had a table free. Unfortunately they didn't but the man behind the bar was extremely helpful and recommended another restaurant nearby.

“Our "Go To" gastro pub”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The H&G has been consistently top quality since the Greenstocks set up here in 2004. We have had dozens of meals here over the years and have never been disappointed. The welcome is always warm and the food is always generous and hearty.

Regular favourites of battered cod, chips and minted peas are several rungs ahead standard chip shop fayre. The cooking is invariably spot-on and the results are fabulous. Despite being invariably busy (reservations are recommended) the service is always friendly and helpful. Regular staff are now friends, newcomers are confident and friendly.

Every visit is a delight
