Service was very nice, although we felt the server was very busy, he was polite and concerned about our needs. The food was downright amazing, as good as I've had anywhere and the wine list was varied. I agree with another poster that it was odd to have paper napkins in this setting, which was rugged and country, yet elegant in it's simplicity. Several seating arrangements include country style "love-seats". Local quality foods are served, the strawberries in my dessert were grown 50 yards away. http://www.horseandgroom.uk.com/restaurant.html is thier own website.

I live in London and visited the Horse and Groom in Oddington very recently. I only wish I lived closer, as this is a fantastic place to eat, drink and be merry. The owners are more hospitable than some of my own family, and make you feel so welcome you will not want to leave. The food is truly great - I have frequented most of the so-called gastropubs in London, and none of them close to the food here. The wide-ranging menue offers good choices for vegetarians, and the wine list is excellent. I would love to return for an overnight stay, and I am sure it would be even more enchanting in the summer months as the surrounding area is so beautiful. I thoroughly recommend the Horse and Groom to anyone looking for a fantastic meal in great surroundings, at a very reasonable price

We stayed at the Horse and Groom during August 2008. We ate in the restaurant 2 nights out of the 3 that we were staying and the food was superb. Good atmosphere in the attractive restaurant and every course was delicious.
What a pity that the bedrooms do not match the quality of the restaurant. Although scrupulously clean they are not somewhere to relax and are very basic. Attractively furnished but with cheap spindly furniture. Drawers did not fit or fell out. Very small bathroom with a tiny towel ring for the very threadbare towels. Most noticeable was no facilities to make a cup of tea or coffee. The inn is closed during the afternoon therefore after a days sightseeing one could not come back for a rest and have a cup of tea. Such a shame as the Inn is delightful as is 'mine host', but a few extra touches of comfort to the bedrooms would make all the difference.
