About The Horse & Groom

Early Days

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.
