The Horse and Groom Inn aims to provide great food and drink in a quintessential, traditional 16th century country inn. Dining is relaxed and informal in a friendly atmosphere. We stock a wide choice of wines by the glass, cask conditioned ales, lagers and ciders.

Our guests can enjoy dining in our cosy bar or restaurant areas. We welcome well behaved dogs. We also have a comfortable outdoor terrace and garden area with picturesque babbling brook.

We also have a small in-pub coffee shop and delicatessen! Selling the best of local produce, bread, milk and a selection of luxury food and drink items, the shop is open whenever we are. We also provide great coffees, fresh-baked cookies, cakes and pastries.

Our BBQ/ Smokery menu also features our home-smoked meats (Brisket, Ribs etc).

Note: There are two pubs called the Horse and Groom in the area - we are the Horse and Groom Inn at Upper Oddington.

    We held a family reunion dinner here on Saturday 27th November which was a roaring success! The staff were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent, all dishes and courses arrived on time, looking great and were very tasty. The Horse and Groom is an authentic Cotswolds Inn with cosy fires, dog friendly and even better they use local produce as much as possible. We will be back that's for sure!

    We were booked for Friday evening and enjoyed the food and ambience so much we returned on Sunday evening. We both had calves liver with mash on the first visit along with apple tart tatin and steak and stilton pie with chips and steak and ale with mash the second visit followed by bread and butter pudding. The food and drinks Rioja and butty bach ale both times was outstanding and the team who looked after us were really friendly and helpful. It was a real pleasure to visit - thank you

    We had a lovely evening meal with you in Nov 2021, the food and service were fantastic, the pub was quiet and warm, only small criticism was that the tables were low in comparison to the chairs which made getting your legs underneath comfortably quite difficult.

    We had a lovely Sunday lunch - food was excellent- best roast dinner for a long time! Service was ok - it took a while to order our drinks probably about 25 mins but once done things arrived in good time- we did order some olives twice but they never arrived- but otherwise we had a fabulous meal and we would definitely return!

    Did not know the area at all and chose this at random. We had roast beef and roast pork mains. The beef was cut as two thick slabs, rather like 2 sirloin steaks in appearance - we could have done with steak knives! A roast is meant to be carved. The pork was like a very big, rough pork chop. Neither meat had much taste, especially the beef. Disappointing. Service was polite and cheerful, but we had to wait ages for our main course, and then to be served for desserts. Could be not enough staff on duty, rather than the fault of the ones serving? The pub itself is pleasant inside and out, and we were seated in a quiet corner part separated from the main dining area, so that at least was nice.

    The Horse and Groom InnResponded on 14 September 2021

    Thank you for your comments. I will feedback your notes on the meat to our Head Chef. Our meat is all locally sourced and reared and most of our feedback is that it is full of flavour, so it is surprising to hear that you found it lacking in taste. As is common in most of our industry at the moment we are short of staff, but it is pleasing to hear that the team worked hard and remained polite and cheerful. So sorry that you left feeling disappointed, I wish you let us know at the time.

    Lovely setting & friendly staff! Food was great but somewhat overpriced when it comes to side dishes! Overall. Will definitely frequent!

    The Horse and Groom InnResponded on 10 September 2021

    Thank you for your lovely comments and feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed dining with us. As for pricing of side dishes we try to ensure that every meal comes with accompanying items (eg. Potatoes, etc) but accept that some guests wish to order additional accompaniments. We price these generally at £4-£4.50 which is competitive for the area and reflects both the cost of the ingredients, wastage costs and staff costs in preparing them.

    I was a little surprised that the menu did not really accommodate children other than a smaller version of the main roast. Furthermore with one child being a pescatarian , the restaurant refused to provide a child’s version of the fish (salmon) meal which seemed a little unfair given that the only other options were meat. The service was generally good other than a refusal to accommodate dietary requirements although the wine was warm. Generally the atmosphere was good and the facilities clean if a little basic.

    The Horse and Groom InnResponded on 6 September 2021

    Thank you for your review. We are sorry that our Sunday children’s roast options didn’t meet the dietary needs of your child. On Sundays our options are more limited for children simply due to kitchen capacity/ demand. Our children’s roast options are usually popular. However, whilst we don’t offer a children’s version of the salmon dish (due to cost of the dish to prepare and source), the adult version was available.
