Horse & Groom Bourton On Hill Reviewed

A gorgeous Georgian Grade II listed property in the heart of the Cotswolds, the Horse & Groom offers a touch of tradition and delicious dining. Located in Bourton-On-Hill, this is a superb spot for a romantic getaway or an evening meal.

In addition to 5 rooms and a newly reinvigorated restaurant, there is also the classic rural feel. The charming local landscape is comprised of picture perfect stone walls, rolling hills and the most beautiful villages. If you are a rambler, cyclist or a horse rider, the area is ideal too.


This Cotswolds destination offers a set of 5 tastefully styled rooms, with a laid back and yet high standard. Furnished with a rustic country style, rooms have a bath or shower ensuite, complimentary Bramley toiletries, homemade biscuits, WiFI and more. Comfortable, relaxing and ideal for a one night break away.  The Horse & Groom is also dog friendly, so just enquire before booking, should you wish to bring your pooch along for the ride.


Under new leadership since October 2017, the Horse & Groom has embarked upon an exciting new dining ethos. The destination is looking to create regular, seasonal menus, which reflect as much local produce as possible. This includes locally sourced meat from the local Toddenham Manor Farm and other suppliers in the area. The result of this is an exciting, fresh and dynamic menu, which provides a window into the breadth of high quality produce in the Cotswolds. We have even heard rumblings that the kitchen is looking to grow produce on site for the ultimate touch of freshness.

Beginning our meal we opted for the locally sourced Evesham asparagus, with locally created Salt Pig Parma ham and a poached egg. Fresh, simple and yet bursting with flavour. Wonderful. Other highlights included a 35 day aged ribeye, which melted in the mouth and was cooked to perfection. Although you shouldn’t expect Michelin star, the dining is of a high standard and yet also in keeping with the traditions of the area. We weren’t quite brave enough to try the “Lample pie” however, a traditional Cotswold dish, which sees lamb and (yes, you guessed it), apple combined. Rustically charming food delivered with care and attention makes dining a real joy at the Horse & Groom.

Final details

There’s private parking and a large garden to the rear and the pub is easily reached from Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Broadway and Stow on the Wold.

Plus, you should know, the Horse and Groom is part of the Epicurean Collection which is a group of independent boutique inns dedicated to the finest in British food, comfort and culture, each set in idyllic countryside or traditional village locations.  Make your booking here.
