Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Horse & Groom

Attractive Sam Smith's house, despite the initially dull-looking brown façade (although this does feature an unusual three-part bow window between the two front doors if you take the time to look). There isn't a great deal of seating in the 'L'-shaped saloon bar; just three small tables under the windows and a few high stools. However, the two lounge-type rooms to the rear are comfortably old-fashioned, and the food bar and another lounge can be found upstairs (never visited). All dark wood and wallpaper, as you would expect, plus a selection of etched and cut glass. Also has a few wooden picnic benches out front which catch the afternoon sun. Just OBB (£3.10) from the three handpumps, of course, but this is still a decent spot for a quick pint.

Sam Smiths outlet. Usual SS turn of the century stylings; brown and cream chequerboard flooring, curved and dark wood bar, nice etched glasswork on the opposite wall to bar. Beyond this main bar is another room with William Morris style wallpaper, broken up by a wood and glass partition. Mention elsewhere of darts but I didn’t spot it. Lounge and food bar upstairs. Nicely tiled gents of pa(i)ssing interest. Cask OBB available and for once not freezing cold. However there was kerfuffle elsewhere with the Taddy which was agreed by all to taste of line cleaner, though the friendly lass behind the bar was clueless as to what needed to be done. Mind you she barely looked like she’d sat her GCSEs. Based on that I think one visit here is enough for me.

Sam Smith's pub so as you would expect an ornate old interior as described below. Usual Sam Smith's selection.
