My husband and I were invited out to the Horse & Groom by friends for a 'cheer-up' meal after a traumatic month of family bereavements. We had never been here before but had heard some good comments. And we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. It was a Wednesday evening which meant it was 'steak night' although you could... More

We tried the Horse and Groom for a meal with friends who live fairly locally - it is set in the centre of a pretty village and has picnic sets in the courtyard outside. There's a bar and restaurant area - we sat in the bar as we had our friend's dog with us, but it is very comfortable. Good... More

There can be no denying that for a little under £25 for two steaks with chips and a bottle of wine to share is good value - however my steak cooked rare was very chewy - although others found theirs to be good mine and another in our party of 8 fell short of the mark - the chips were... More

Just got home after a 2 day break at this lovely pub. Our first impression were good, we were not disappointed. The bedroom was very clean and beautifully furnished. Breakfasts were cooked well and tasted lovely, and plenty to eat. Lots to pick off the menu for our evening meal. Jim and all his staff were very kind and nothing... More

lovely local atmosphere, not at all stuffy like so many pubs that do food these days are. Very welcoming staff good buzzy feel well kept beers and lovely good traditional well cooked and presented food. What more could you want on a lazy Sunday lunch time. A lovely comfortable relaxing atmosphere well worth a visit.

We stayed here for one night. Our room was well equipped. A really friendly welcome was given when we arrived and later on when we came down for our meal. It was essential to have pre booked our table as the place filled up very quickly with many uncooked customers trying to get tables. Out food came quickly and was... More

Although advertised as having wifi our room did not. Also we were in the twin room, beds were wonderful but the folding door to the bathroom /toilet had patterned but clear glass making it difficult if work colleagues were sharing. Nice breakfast , nice welcome and lovely people

Have visited this pub a number of times over the last few years and have always found the welcome to be warm (helped by the big open fire) and the food to be excellent. Will remain a firm favourite.
