Pleasant pub in a good location, very much food orientated but drinkers are very welcome. Six handpumps, three of which were Theakston's, opted for the Dockyard which was good.

No sign of the previously mentioned barmaid, staff were young, cheerful and hardworking.

Having found a nearby pub very busy with Christmas lunch parties, we stopped at the 'Horse and Groom' in this attractive village north of Nottingham. Good-sized car park.
In a traditional manner, there are at least two separate bars, which can only be accessed externally.Nice open fires on a winter day. A good choice of ales, listed on a blackboard, as some pumps are located in one bar, and others in the other. Probably about six in total. I was offered the opportunity to try a taster before selecting.
Certainly no sign of the surly barmaid mentioned by others - very friendly and efficient service.
The food menu was fairly standard pub-type fare, but with a few interesting options.

A reasonable sized pub set in a picturesque Nottinghamshire village. There are multiple rooms instead and a large garden at the rear. We sat in a conservatory, also to the rear where the toilets are located and there is a games machine. There was a good selection of ales - Butcombe Gold, Pentrich Revolution Best Bitter (possibly brewed in Cumbria), Caledonian All American Ale, Morland Old Speckled Hen, Horse & Groom Bitter (clearly a house beer, but not sure who the brewer was), Castle Rock Harvest Pale & Adnams Broadside. Agree with the comments about the barmaid made below. Not sure if it was the same one. But she was certaintly quite surly. Nevertheless, a good pub.

Upon my first visit to this pub not sure quite what to say. It looks lovely from the outside but the
atmosphere on the inside left a lot to be desired. I was served by a very miserable bar maid who acted liked she'd rather be trying kill her self than serve us. If you've ever seen the film An American Wearwolf in London, where the two travelling Americans visit the pub called the Slaughtered Lamb you might understand my meaning. There was no actual pentangle on the wall but I was made to feel as welcome as ?? . If they don't sacrifice local virgins and burn witches I'll eat my hat!!!!

I've given this pub a 2 as does look nice from the outside :)

Called in at lunchtime today with my girlfriend and we were very impressed. The Horse & Groom is a lovely unspoilt pub in a very pretty village. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very good and reasonably priced and there is a choice of well kept real ales.
