We eat here quite often being local and always have a good meal. We shared nibbles as a starter and then I had the beef and my husband had the burger. Service was good and friendly. All in all a good meal.

As we walked into this pub ..on Easter Sunday..we thought what a lovely place..nice space and well furnished. Unfortunately the food was a real disappointment...we ordered the mussels, they arrived cooked and cold as if sitting around for ages, with a few bacon bits thrown on, and a miserable non stock. The pasta looked good, but sun dried tomatoes were replaced by part cooked cherry tomatoes and the pumpkin was not fully cooked. The cheese board was the best choice and was great. The waitress unfortunately was a trainee..without training...had no idea what the figs would look like, and had no idea how large the coffee cups were. A real disappointment..this venue has the promise of being really fab.

Me and my partner popped in for a light lunch after we had walked our dog along the river. After seeing the menu our light lunch turned out to be not so light!
We ordered two sandwiches mine was Brie and bacon and my partner had ham and piccalilli, they were like door stops so yummy and served with chips too, very filling!! Very good value for money.
Also our little dog enjoyed his lunch of biscuits provided by the friendly girl behind the bar.
All in all a very good lunch after a lovely walk!!

The Horse And Groom has previously provided a great atmosphere, excellent service and good food, but our recent experience was very disappointing. My rabbit was clearly defrosted and warmed through with no pretence of being freshly cooked, my wife's fish and chips left a lot to be desired, the chips were poor and the fish not very warm. The beer was well kept and the service was good, but without good food to back it up it just becomes another drinker's pub with good beer. I hope the owners can turn the food around and get it back to the high standards the Horse and Groom achieved when it first opened. I

A beautiful pub with great atmosphere.. Met a friend for a drink but only one member of staff serving. He was extremely slow and we had to wait far too long to be served. Even though it was busy all evening no one came to help him and he struggled to keep up. A real shame.
