About Horse & Groom Inn: 

The H and G sits at The Cross - the crossroads at the top end of Wivenhoe.

This was the junction where the roads between Colchester, Brightlingsea and Wivenhoe converged. A prominent position for a public house.

The earliest historical records for the Horse and Groom show that the pub was originally known as the King's Arms. It first started trading in 1772.

Simon and Dosh Smith, took over the Horse and Groom from Harry and Bess in March 1989.

Both Simon and Dosh were already well-known in Wivenhoe, having run The Station pub for 6 years.

In 2018, their daughter Emily joined them in the running of the pub.

Sadly, on the 21st November 2018 Simon passed away after a long battle with cancer. Dosh and Emily are now partners and continue to run The Horse & Groom.
