Close to the river, popular with locals, they had a good range of beers on and a tasty selection of food. I'd happily visit again.

Simple, honest and welcoming. Here at the Horse & Groom we pride ourselves on our great selection of real ales, home cooked food and welcoming staff. Located at the end of the Brayford Wharf with a spacious car park and large garden, it's everything we believe a real pub should be.
