We called in for lunch as we were passing, turned out to be a good choice, we only had starters and mains which were delicious. Recommended
Fantastic pub, classy with a comfortable atmosphere. Lovely staff, very helpful and accommodating. The food is stunning, photo taken halfway through our meal. Will be returning! UPDATE: They now host weddings, we were at their first one and it was just beautiful! Can't recommend enough.
The most outstanding meal! Great ambiance. Highly recommend!
The service was excellent
Great beers and drinks, beautiful bar, building and a great outdoor area for hot days. The service was excellent and food delicious I have been staying in the accommodation which was also excellent I highly recommend
Very friendly, attentive and happy
Food was very good and flavoursome. Ham hock portion was enormous- one portion could easily have fed two people. Staff were exceptional- very friendly, attentive and happy. Quickly dealt with any requests for additional drinks etc.
Best Roasts Ever.
I don't normally do reviews but our party of 4 have just enjoyed the most fantastic Sunday roast at the Horse and Groom (30/7/23), without doubt the best pub roast I have ever eaten. The staff were polite and attentive, even bringing water, treats and offering a blanket for our dog to lie on. What's not to like, congratulations to all the staff at the Horse and Groom.
Massive dog friendly garden
Visited twice over the weekend, once during the day for drinks and the following evening for dinner.
The gardens are huge and there's no better place if you are a dog lover or have one with you. Great place to soak up the sun too!
Dinner was superb. Amazing food and wine, matched by extremely good service. Two words if you go for dinner though... Ham Hock. The best you'll ever have.
What more do you want?
Excellent food and excellent service. Great traditional pub but with 21st Century twist.
Great Food & Service
The restaurant was very busy but we didn’t have to wait long for our sea bass with summer ratatouille. Well-cooked and a good portion. Lovely apple and mixed berry crumble for dessert. We shall return.
Lucky to have this so close to us
Having moved to Oddington in November 2022, we feel so lucky to be close to the Horse & Groom. On every occasion that we have visited, whether for drinks or meals, we have had a warm welcome, delicious food and great service.
Fabulous weekend break and totally dog friendly
My husband and I have just returned from a lovely long weekend break staying at the Horse and Groom. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome, including the dog. All the staff were friendly and were happy to chat and suggested some lovely local walks and places to visit.
We stayed in the ground floor cottage (room 6) which was spotlessly clean and included a welcome gift of snacks for us and the dog. A clean dog bed, towel and bowls were also provided.
We had breakfasts and two evening meals which were all delicious and portion sizes were good. What made the break so special was how welcome the dog was and how he could sit with us in the restaurant and guest areas. The little stream in the garden was great for the dog to play in ( and get cleaned up).
Thanks Warren, Norman and the rest of the team for making our weekend so enjoyable. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again next time we visit the Cotswolds.
