New management in 2015 making a go of it. Looks promising.

New management in 2012 making a go of it. Still a restaurant with a small lounge bar, rather than a pub.

We popped in here on Saturday 15th October for a quick drink at about 6pm.Our dog was allowed in the bar area.There was Shepherd Neame Late Red,Spitfire and Harvey's Best on draught.The friendly barmaid served us a pint of Late Red,Spitfire,half Oranjeboom pint of lime and soda two packs of ready salted crisps and a bag of nuts for 12.20.We sat near the burning log fire which was topped up by the young barman.The pub has timber beams and horse brasses type decor which was not overdone.At one end of the pub looked like a restaurant area.There were food specials on the blackboards which looked tempting.We left just before 7pm and enjoyed our brief stop here.We would like to return and try the food.The beer was good.The gents toilet was clean and tidy with soap and cold water and a hand dryer.The wall mounted water heater did not seem to work.Our experience deserves a 7/10.

Our first visit to Rushlake on reccomendation and to celebrate a friends Birthday, we were not dissapointed with the food quality, portion size, service or atmosphere of the `ye olde' Horse & Groom situated in front of the village green. The various `specials' boards grab attention (although a little difficult to read) with two of us opting for the `half' shoulder of Lamb with Roasties & the Liver & Bacon; both cooked perfectly; the Mustard Mash with the Liver was very good in a kind of `melt in the mouth' way. Our friends chose from the main menu, a curry that was tasty but had little or no heat and the `wait and see' Pie that simply got the better of our Birthday boy and he had to ask at the Bar of it's contents prior to placing the order. We didn't have to wait long for our (hot) food and our young waiter was on the ball, polite and a credit to the establishment. Being offered a jug of water is such a simple welcoming thing, yet invariably is missing from other `more expensive' eateries. Everyone cleared their plates (the Lamb clearly a challenge ..) and Pudding was a choice from the board from Panacotta, Pies, Cheesecakes and varied accompaniments that were hard to refuse. We had Chocolate cake, Meringue, Banoffee and Apple Pie with Custard, the sweet tooth brigade demolishing in near silence ... So overall a good experience and one that we all agreed we would repeat. Maybe in the summer to see how the change of season effects a change of choice on the Boards. The Bar is quaint (small) with a roaring open fire that draws in the needy on a cold January eve. In fact it snowed this evening, just for a minute or two, oh how we joked that we may have to stay a little longer had it persisted! My Beer was Oranjeboom, still a rarity, still a good pint. I thought the bill reasonable at just over 20 per head and as no service charge had been added (thank you), I gave a tip to show our appreciation.
Oh and in case you wondered? Steak and Mushroom. The filling for the `wait and see'...

Beautiful pub, somewhat spoiled by overpriced food and dog mess absolutely everywhere in the garden. The pub's Labradoodle roams freely, so worth a look if you like dogs and their faeces.
