Welcome

The Horse & Groom


A welcoming riverside location set in the North Bedfordshire village of Clapham, set on the Great Ouse, we’re home to a lovingly designed 18th century old coaching inn with private dining area, an all season garden with alfresco eating area. A premium pub, bar and restaurant perfect for all dining occasions or just to meet up for drinks. Designed to be child and dog friendly to ensure we create the family atmosphere you should expect from this family run retreat.

We offer a wide selection of beers, wines and real ales to accompany your experience as well as a large choice of gins and spirits including Pimms on draught.

With bags of character in the reportedly haunted bar with log fires to keep you warm in winter and our willow lined riverside garden to keep you cool in summer, the Horse and Groom has something to offer everyone. Our “Trim Trail” is perfect for the children while you relax in the garden with a drink and a nibble.
