The other day I was grabbing a beer when a horse walked into the pub. The bartender looked up and said “Hey.” The horse sat down next to me and said, “Buddy—you read my mind!” The pub in question was the Horse and Groom which is a beautiful multi-room Victorian pub located in the heart of Fitzrovia. Like many other Sam Smiths pubs in the area the interior is beautiful with plenty of original tiling, etched glass and woodwork. However, it's the eye catching exterior with its equine theme, highlighted by two painted panels above the entrance, that makes this pub truly stand out. For such a busy area the H&S seems rather quiet. Regardless the attentive staff are at the ready to provide efficient and friendly service to me and my hoofed friend. As I sat outside enjoying an IPA my long legged pal stumbled out looking lost. I asked him where he lived? His answer.......Mane St.
