Horse & Groom

A Grade II listed Georgian inn of honey coloured stone, the Horse & Groom is bursting with character. The hill top setting provides spectacular views over the surrounding landscape and there is private parking and a large garden to the rear. Inside, sympathetic refurbishment has added a contemporary feel whilst maximising original period features.

Brothers Tom & Will Greenstock run the pub with passion and pride. Whilst Tom looks after all things front of house, the Kitchen is Will’s domain.  Will heads up the kitchen brigade producing freshly prepared dishes from locally sourced and homegrown ingredients. His approach to food is simple – use the tastiest ingredients and let the flavours speak for themselves. No over-elaborate dishes, just great combinations using the very best produce. Supporting local farmers who share his passion for quality, Will is able to source 80% of his food from within a 30 mile radius.

The local suppliers extend beyond the food. Three hand pumps on the bar offer a regularly changing selection of local real ales including brews from Goff’s and North Cotswold Breweries. If you prefer a little fizz in your pint then there’s Cotswold Premium lager from Cotswold Brewing Co. and Lawless from Purity Brewing.

To make the H&G the perfect country escape, five sumptuous double bedrooms await upstairs. Fully refurbished and individually styled, each with ensuite facilities, the rooms offer a comfortable and convenient base for exploring the Cotswolds.

Whether you’re stopping for a quick pint of well-kept locally brewed ale, dropping by for Sunday lunch, or staying for a weekend in one of the five beautiful bedrooms you will be well looked after by Tom and the team.
