The Horse & Groom

Located at the quiet end of Curtain Road, bordering The City and now cool Shoreditch, is the charming Horse and Groom pub, or The Disco Pub, as it is fondly known in clubland circles . The Horse and Groom’s history dates back to the beginning of the 1800’s, at a time when Britain was preparing for an invasion from Napoleon. This cosy East End boozer was built over the remains of the Curtain Theatre that, almost 300 years previously, had been the stage where Shakespeare himself acted and Romeo & Juliet and Henry V were first performed. The Curtain’s exact location was unknown until recent excavations by the Museum of London which found it under our feet ( or Female toilets to be exact )! The Horse & Groom is, once again, the place for great entertainment, now established as one of the leading contemporary music destinations in the area. Top acts have played the Horse and Groom, including Greg Wilson, Todd Terje, M.K, Dimitri from Paris and Fabric resident Craig Richards. The venue hosts cutting edge parties that rival many bigger London clubs, with a 4am license to boot! The Horse and Groom is quietly coming to the forefront of an ever growing East London cultural scene .
Whilst the regular weekend parties, with international DJs and cutting edge music, continue, the Horse and Groom has undertaken a major refurbishment making it an even more enchanting place to while away any lunchtime or evening. Sit and relax in one of our many nooks and crannies, all with free WIFI, or enjoy our carefully selected music playlist. The upstairs room is perfect for private events, from corporate to birthday parties it is the perfect party space. With an exciting drinks menu offering a wide selection of craft beers, cocktails, wines, premium beers, ciders and ales, we are sure to excite your taste buds whilst you enjoy our brand new food kitchen which is now open and in full swing. The menu contains popular staples from our new pop-up Pulled….. who are bringing there full range of British free range meats all slow roasted to perfection. With there own unique recipes, you can expect to enjoy not only their classic golden brioche buns packed full of pulled meat (and veggie) and fresh slaw, but also experience their pulled meat nachos, snacks, sharing platters and more……..The Horse and Groom aims to bring high end street food food to the kitchen counter to maintain face to face service, but also seating in the upstairs dining bar for those who want to enjoy both Beer and Burger.
