Pub
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 on leads. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times. 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 to drink in or take away.

Our menu focusses on great steaks and seafood (vegetarian/ vegan always available).

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

    Lovely menu choices but our order got mixed up so the wrong plate was delivered to our table which was then replaced when brought to their attention. One of the sides was cold when it should have been hot so seemed like they were having some problems that night. The staff were lovely and the food was generally good - we were just unlucky.

    We have just moved to the area and decided to treat ourselves last minute to a Sunday roast as we needed a break from putting up Xmas decs. Were delighted that we managed to get squeezed in as the restaurant had a large party booking. We both opted for the roast beef which was unbelievably tender and tasty, as were the rest of the 'trimmings' - the cauliflower cheese was amazing - we will definitely be back. Our server, (I think his name was Norman), was absolutely charming and had the perfect balance of friendliness and professionalism and is a total credit to the business - we should know, as we have just sold our pub after 19 years, so know that employees like him are hard to come by. See you again soon

    Sunday lunch with friends. A big no no for me is serving food on cold plates. Had the roast pork which was very nice. Roast potatoes were good but probably not the best I’ve had. Pleasant pub but not as good as it was in years gone by….
