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.

“Still excellent”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Delicious food at a reasonable price.
Great pub and terrific staff.
Still the best tasting food in the area.
However, we did notice that the portions have become a little smaller this time!
Didn't quite feel we had had enough for a main meal - and we aren't big eaters.
Considered dropping review to 4 stars, but food and staff still great.

“Sunday Lunch in the Sunshine”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

First visit to this establishment and will certainly be coming back. The food was delicious and the staff very welcoming, they went out of their way to make sure that we got the food we ordered. We were not rushed and had a lovely time with our friends.

“Great food, service and atmosphere - highly recommended!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

We booked a table for 4 on a Saturday night and from the overflowing car park and the warm welcome from happy staff built the expectation for the evening. The traditional Cotswold building is very clean, bright, but with a traditional feel.
The large chalk board menu adjacent to the bar was a real treat with a great choice of dishes for starters and main courses. The relaxed but professional approach to ordering a drink at the bar and then placing the food order before being taken to our table that we were told was ready for us upon arrival felt very personal, despite the place being extremely busy.
The food was really good, with every course for each of us very well cooked and presented. Little point in suggesting the best dishes as the charm of the changing daily menu means that the dishes we enjoyed most probably will not be on the menu when you visit, but I am sure they will be replaced by something equally interesting.
The owners have spent 9 years building the business and yet it feels fresh and vibrant.
We look forward to our next visit to the Horse & Groom.

“Simply sensational!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Went for Sunday lunch on strong recommendation. It certainly lived up to all the hype they gave it. Beautiful traditional Cotswold style pub/restaurant. Warm welcome. Relaxed but very friendly,efficient service. Diverse menu with a tempting range of different dishes which you order from a master blackboard. Had starter of vegetable samosa with a truly delicious sauce. Just wonderful. Had to fight my wife off from pinching too much of it!!! We ordered dishes of the 'old spot pork with roast potatoes, fresh veg etc and battered hake, chips, and puréed peas. Just delightfu. Couldn't resist a dessert and opted for the ginger sponge....heaven. All this plus drinks and coffee for just over £60. An absolute steal. Now on our top five best ever country restaurants. You'll need to book well advance to get a table as not surprisingly it get 'chocker block' but this doesn't have an adverse impact on the level of service. These guys really do know their business. A well deserved ten out of ten.
