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 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.

    Food was nice but pricey. Children's fish and chips no peas would expect to at least get a portion of some sort of veg in a childs meal especially when on the pricier side of the scale. Adults fish and chips had a tiny portion of peas in small sauce pot so I couldn't really share my own peas. Other than that everything was good

    The staff were very good, the atmosphere and the pub are great, and overall we had a very enjoyable evening, but the prices for the food and the wine are on the high side for a gastro-pub. Consequently it is minor things that should be better, and although the service was very good, I believe that a 12.5% service charge for a meal in a country pub is excessive. In our last two visits we have had a wait of an hour for a starter, when there were two large parties in the restaurant, and when they arrived one of the starters was cold and had to be sent back: a steak was cooked to order and tasty, but hard work to cut, even with a steak knife: the halibut dish was enjoyable, but the halibut was slightly overcooked: a tarte tatin was tasty, but had a soggy base: and liver and bacon, which was excellent, was crying out for a green vegetable as part of the dish. To counter these negative comment the devilled kidneys were memorable, and on balance the pluses outweigh the minuses.

    Huge huge huge portions - the chef is giving away your profit margins ! Great food , and lots of it - the execution of the smoked brisket was a little clumsy as there was so much that it became incredible messy to eat from such a small bowl / plate - maybe best to think of a better serving solution, From a business perspective, smaller portions =more margins and more dessert sales too !!

    The team tried hard, were enthusiastic and tried to be attentive, but my fish was over cooked (and had a prawn on top when I asked not to have the lobster bisque) and my wife's fish was undercooked. Starter was tasty - though the way that my wife's starter was plated was strange/unique!

    We enjoyed a Saturday lunch here. We ate three courses with coffee, and drinks were 2 Proseccos and one glass of red wine. I had the soup, which tasted good, but was far too large a portion if one was to do justice to the main course. Husbands's main of pork belly was excellent. I did note that each main course came with chips as standard. My dessert of homemade berry cheesecake was delicious, husband asked for sticky toffee pudding (which was not on the menu that day but the pub could provide); unfortunately it was a little dry. The coffee was exceedingly strong - rather too strong even with the cream we had with it. Price for all this £103 with the 12.5% added gratuity.

    A warm and friendly welcome to dinner with a good choice of cocktails to start. The menu varied and very interesting. We took our little dog along who was cheerfully accepted. We chose the tempura soft shell crab, coriander purée, wasabi Mayo with toasted focaccia to start which was a first for us and very tasty. Mains were Halibut and for me Guinea fowl with excellent accompaniment tastefully presented. There was a good choice of reasonably priced wines with a complimentary Prosecco as it was my wife’s birthday. All in all an excellent meal. We highly recommend.

    Food was lovely. Only comment would be that in the first course (burratino and salad), the proportion of salad leaves to burratino was too great, and the portions of roast smoked pork,, although tender and delicious-tasting, were much too big and 4 roast potatoses each was too much. Cauliflower cheese didn't have enough sauce, and was a bit dry, but v. tasty. Service outstanding - charming, helpful (my husband, who is v. frail asked for a chair with arms at our outside table, and this was willingly fetched) and professional. Will happily recommend and will definitely be back.
