We stayed for one night, which was perfect (the room - 4 - was small but adequate for us and very comfortable beds). The welcome was immense, the staff were really lovely and hard working. Food was really nice, cooked breakfast was great. Loved it here.

We live locally and had been to this Gastro pub several times when it was privately owned, it is now owned by a small hotel/pub chain. In all our years of eating out we have never had to send back a meal because it was not properly cooked - this was specific to my wife's Risotto. Then to add insult to injury the replacement was also not cooked. Yes we received apologies and a reduction in our bill from the manager. The starters were good but no bread was offered, my main course was served without any carbohydrate (or none offered) and I was not asked how I would like the Duck cooked - it was on the rare side. The desserts were very sugary and sweet, the fruit crumble being described as seasonal - the fruit mix quite possibly coming from a commercially sourced jar or packet (we make them regularly at home from real fruit). The crumble topping looked like it was flour and butter rubbed together sprinkled on and thrown under a grill.

Also because it is now no longer run by the owner the level of service and commitment from the staff is just not there, it come across as just a job, something we have noticed in other establishments where this has happened.

The venue has great potential but if the company do not grasp it they will lose it, these places can make money but need to provide the quality and service to sustain them.

Had an excellent meal at the Horse & Groom. We had booked it with travelzoo and were pleased we were offered the normal menu. The portions for the starters were very generous and the whole meal was delicious. The staff were very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we would recommend.

Average food at expensive prices. Fish and chips was nothing special. Salmon infused with Jasmine tea starter was awful. Good service and lovely staff. Pretty pub.

This is a nice place to chill out and relax after a walk in the countryside around Moreton. The staff are helpful and the atmosphere is informal and ‘pub like’, so it may not appeal to everyone. Eating here seems to be very popular, so it may be advisable to phone ahead. Having said this, while the beers are good, the food doesn’t quite make the same standards; the portions are generous but, based on the meals we ate, they are not yet at gastropub standards (but then neither are the prices). But if it’s a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere that you are seeking, then it’s certainly better than some of its snootier neighbours
