Diamond Wedding Celebration

"Kelly & Geoff, Last Saturday, we attended the above celebration and thoroughly enjoyed it. The company was excellent, but the success of the evening must be down to yourselves - the venue was welcoming, the food was superb and your staff were all friendly and helpful. Many thanks and we look forward to visiting you again. Jean & Alan Hardy, Castle Camps


"The family gathered at the Horse and Groom from various parts of Essex and it was well worth the long drive out to Cornish Hall End. We were very impressed with the amazing varied menu, particularly the fabulous selection of fish dishes. The portions were generous and were cooked perfectly. Vegetables were fresh and beautifully cooked. The service was friendly and faultless, the atmosphere comfortable. what more could we ask? Just one little thing... more lighter, fruity deserts please! After such a filling and delicious meal, to have a desert is probably an unnecessary luxury, but it would have been nice to have something that is not too heavy, a fruit salad or a sorbet would have rounded off the meal perfectly! Thank you to all the staff at the Horse and Groom, I'm sure we will come back for our next family occasion." J.Argent

"Dropped in for a quick drink was amazed at the quality of food, definately going to take the family for a sunday roast. Just incredible." D. Dryer


"A truly perfect example of what an english country pub should be. A great friendly atmosphere, fantastic food, and welcoming staff. We have attended many of the entertainment/theme evenings, and can honestly say we have throughly enjoyed every one. It was because of this that we decided to hold our daughters' wedding reception here, and it was the most perfect day and evening that we could of wished for, so thankyou to all at the Horse and Groom for your tireless efforts in giving us that perfect day.. I cannot recommend this pub highly enough for any occassion."

"The Horse and Groom Public House is set in a small village of Cornish Hall End in north Essex. It has a welcoming atmosphere and it's a great place for everyone to get together. The restaurant offers a great choice of menu. Geoff and Kelly make a lot of effort to arrange theme nights and entertainment for all tastes. Bishops Bingo is a favourite with me! Thanks guys for your continued enthusiasm to keep your customers happy." L.Keeble, Gt.Dunmow

"We had our wedding reception at the Horse and Groom and all I can say is Kelly, Geoff and all the staff really pulled out all the stops for us, we had a lovely meal!! I now live in Ireland and still miss going to the pub for their lovely meals." Gus & Marilyn Sheridan, Ireland


"Really a lovely pub so friendly and comfortable to go for just a drink or to eat one of the lovely meals either on your own or as a group." J Greenslade, Haverhill


"If you're looking for home-cooked food that is fresh and varied, then you must book a visit to The Horse and Groom." Food & Drink Magazine Essex 2010


"The Horse & Groom Public House, What can I say... the food is fantastic, fresh produce, prepared & served to a very high standard, with a vast range of dishes always available. Their speciality nights are a treat not to be missed, the Mexican which I attended was an assault on the senses complete with sombreros & fake moustaches. The welcome you get at the groom is second to none and Kelly & Geoff are tireless in their approach to providing the perfect pub experience. The great food is complimented by an events and entertainment program which includes live music, comedy nights, bingo & much much more. I think the biggest compliment I could pay the Groom, is that I wish I lived nearer & so could participate more!" H.Gilder, Braintree


"Took the whole family it's the perfect place for a lovely Sunday Roast all freshly cooked and served by such friendly staff will definately be a regular from now on many thanks." Shirley - Haverhill


"Who ate all the pies? We did! Great food and lovely people. Many thanks." Debbie and Mark, Haverhill


"A Lovely pub with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and I would highly recommend atending one of the shopping evenings held here or apply for a space if you are a trader" Natalie, Braintree
