The Horse & Groom

Hare Hatch


The Horse and Groom has been serving the needs of locals and passers-by alike for some 300 years, and with all that history the building exudes character and atmosphere from every beam and flagstone.

You'll find log fires burning, lots of cosy corners to tuck yourself away, and a well-stocked bar right at the heart of things.

Our chefs create delicious seasonally inspired menus in the theme of modern British cookery, always including hearty classic pub favourites as well as introducing something a little different, or a little lighter for all occasions.

We look forward to welcoming you,
Alisha and the Horse & Groom team.

Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world.
