Went for a meal as we were staying in great rissington for a few nights and googled where was good to eat, this place came out on top. About a 20 minute drive, but totally worth it. Beautiful home made soup to start, followed by battered cod (me) and butternut squash curry (mrs). Both presented well and tasted great. It... More

My friends and I have been regular visitors for over 10 years, always dining at the Horse and Groom, when we come to the Cotswolds for racing at Cheltenham. We knew that the Greenstock brothers had sold to Epicurean and were interested to see what had changed. As ever during Cheltenham Festival week, the pub was full, and the menu... More

This is the first time I have been to the Horse and Groom under its new ownership. Unfortunately the standards don't appear to be the same as they where. A lack of staff and attentiveness where once these were of a very high standard seem not so important. The food was okay but its such a shame when places are... More

We went to the Horse and groom for lunch, on a wet and windy afternoon this February and how glad we were with our choice. The food from starters through mains with a nice glass of Malbec and on to pudding, was very very good. The service and attention given made you feel they wanted you in their restaurant on... More

Heard rave reviews so thought we'd give this a try. Firstly the menu albeit the choice very limited looked interesting. Disappointingly we were advised that we had to place our order at the bar, no waiter service? At those prices yes there should be! The only menu available was cramped onto a blackboard in the bar. The starters were ok,... More

But it was such a lovely place it deserves a mention. Very friendly staff. The menu and food itself looked lovely. It was a Wednesday lunchtime but it was very busy, so a popular place. When we return to the area we will definitely book a meal.

Revisited this once frequently enjoyed venue only to be disappointed by the quality of the food and meagre proportions. The once comprehensive choice on their menu board had been replaced with limited uninspiring choices. Lack of care and attention to the details charged on the bill. ( No really apology offered, very sad indeed )

I recieved a pint of Horse and Groom ale which was cloudy I questioned this with the arrogant barman who insisted that the beer was fine. The barrel was changed shortly afterwards and the next customers pint was clear and bright. They are prepared to serve customers beer that is not 100% what sort of a pub is this? Not... More

We arrived at 3.45 on Saturday 18/2/2017 only to find pub was shut.We had advised Booking.com that we would arrive at 3.45.We eventually gained access at 5.15.Dinner was average but staff first class.We had also booked for Sunday night only to be told that pub closed after Sunday Lunch hence no dinner that night.No advance warning given.

Just had an excellent meal, brilliant atmosphere, all staff very attentive and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Wide selection of ales. Only fault it was a little too hot, but it was lovely to see an open log fire

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.
