Good food and lovely service. My partner and I have been twice now and both times the service has been good and the specials have been brilliant and full of flavour. They even have a selection of flavoured gins!!!

Took the parents along to try the new menu and thoroughly enjoyed the evening and all the new choices. Some of the specials have now become permanent fixtures on the menu. Disappointed to see some of my favourite sharers gone though. Loved the pork and...More

Called in midweek for an evening meal, the atmosphere was great, the beers were great and the food was great! The beef cheeks on the specials board was excellent. Wonderful location and excellent staff.

We visited on a Saturday evening about 7pm and got a nice window table. We both opted for fish - the pan fried hake and the ale battered fish and chips - both were very tasty. They only seem to have one type of chips...More

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.
