Excellent food and service, great atmosphere and decor too.
Food was excellent, service brilliant. Great selection of beverages and such a lovely cosy place. Would highly recommend.
Very friendly and attentive staff, and a yummy roast dinner. (Vegan-friendly too!)
Fantastic Sunday roast in a beautiful cozy setting. Plus, their outdoors was nice for a short autumnal stroll afterwards. Friendly & timely service. I’m so happy we opted for Horse & Groom for lunch.
A lovely welcoming place to eat tip top food. Staff all hardworking and professional.
Staff were great. Lovely venue. Starters were faultless, Thai spiced mussels and gnocchi for the two of us. The Main course of venison burger and beef ragu lacked taste, were a bit bland. Nonetheless an enjoyable evening.
As always and excellent meal as we work our way through the menu.
This pub is becoming very popular as it is so good so make sure you book!
Lovely country pub with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. White wine was well chilled and the food hot which is always a pleasant surprise. Impressed by the standard of service.
Lovely food and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Dogs welcome. Amazing sticky toffee pudding. Perfect 👌
Great food, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff. Would definitely go again.
Lovely country pub in the Cotswolds. Food excellent. Recommend the bbq smoked beef brisket.
Sticky toffee pudding one of the best!
Staff very friendly.
Food was amazing, beautiful atmosphere. Chairs quite uncomfortable, particularly the benches. Service was good, but we waited quite a while after our main for table to be cleared and to be asked about dessert. Overall though a great meal.
Really pretty restaurant. Staff were very friendly and they had a good menu. My glass of house white was £7 a glass which I felt was a little steep, otherwise a great meal.
Excellent food and atmosphere, with very attentive staff.
A delight to eat there.
Will visit again, very nice food, very good service and a very nice pub
Great experience - they helped us celebrate getting engaged and the staff were absolutely amazing!
Food was great, one of the best dinners we had in the cotswolds
Lovely cosy village pub. Sunday lunch was great, there were a couple of mistakes with the order but the staff were super friendly and rectified quickly. Sticky toffee pud is a must!
Nice pub/inn with a great menu. Very helpful and friendly staff. Food was very high quality, only criticism would be "fewer chips and more meat" would be appreciated on the BBQ menus.
Really impressed – we were a table of six, food and service were fantastic, and we felt safe and well looked after. Recommended!
Lovely setting, and ambience. Well priced meals, and the service couldn’t be faulted.
As always the food and service was excellent. I'm so pleased that this is our local!
Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you on Friday.
Difficult to find. Service was good. Food was ok but nothing special and pricey.
We're pleased you found the service good but are sorry that you had problems finding us. We note your views on price which we try hard to keep as low as we can. All our food is prepared from fresh ingredients which we source from the best local suppliers. We have kept a varied menu and our food quality as high as possible with significantly reduced dining capacity and increased costs. Our chefs certainly aim to create 'special' food and we are sorry if this didn't meet your expectations.
Very good first time experience with friendly service and great food.
Ambience looses a mark because of the Covid effect
Excellent Sunday lunch. Quality of the food was really good and the service was friendly and efficient, the owners really care and it shows. Following the Covid rules so felt really safe. Top class
I attended the Horse and Groom for my birthday with some friends, and despite arriving later than planned (due to getting lost) they were very welcoming and accommodating. The staff were friendly and the food was outstanding. The majority of us had the duck for main and it has to be one of the best duck dishes i have eaten. Cooked perfectly. The menu choice was good and the atmosphere was lovely. Due to the current 10pm restrictions we didn't have time to sample dessert but definitely will next time!
A little too ordinary
Thank you for your review. Without a bit more information it is difficult to use the feedback to improve our experience for future guests. As far as we can tell, you came for Sunday lunch on 10 October. For that lunch service we had our full Sunday lunch options (pork, beef, chicken and vegetarian) and also a selection of alternatives for those who want something different. We also had our home-smoked pork leg as a special, which had great comments from guests. Were you expecting something else?
Lovely old pub with a modern interior. The meal that we had was excellent. My husband had a salmon and prawn starter which he said was good but it was the main course that was outstanding - rack of lamb with seasonal vegetables. I could have eaten it twice. The presentation of the food was also great. I had my first non alcoholic gin which was good. Excellent customer service.from friendly, helpful staff. Only criticism was that my husband said it was a little bit chilly in there. I was ok but the lady on the table behind us kept her coat on. I would definitely return. The outside space looks like it would be nice on a warm day.
Lovely Sunday lunch. Great service. Would recommend.
A really interesting menu, more exciting by far than usual pub grub. Thoroughly enjoyable meal and lovely staff. They made eating out in this crazy time feel safe but almost normal
A very nice evening. Nice food. Nice service.
We will go again.
Fabulous meal, great service and delightful ambience
Very friendly staff. One even gave us suggestions for walks and visits in the area! Food was good and well served. Many thanks
Very friendly staff, service was very good. The food was of a good standard although due to the current climate was some what limited but no reflection on the Horse & Groom.
This was my third visit to the Horse & Groom and it won't be the last.
Great lunch, really friendly staff and would definitely return
A lovely place for lunch. We took our dog which was very easy. Food and service were great. Would definitely go back.
Very good Covid precautions, friendly staff. Lovely atmosphere and great food. Would recommend.
Friendly staff and good service. Very tasty food. Good safety measures in place for Covid.
Slow service for drinks - food average
Excellent Sunday lunch. Lovely roast - very well presentation. Really enjoyed the pub both inside and out. Warm friendly service. Also - a very nice pint of “hill climber” - top ale!
We will definitely return!
