Give this one a miss. The food is very basic and has no care or attention given to it. The service is like they are just going through the motions. When we explained we were not happy there was no reaction at all and no...attempt to understand or remedy. It’s definitely not worth the money. You are better off going elsewhere where they care about the experience their clientele are getting. Wish we had walked out but we just paid and left. We won’t be back.More

Food was lovely, but service quite unprofessional. They have made the effort outside - all covered in with heaters, so it's quite comfortable there. Lovely staff, but learning the little things would help - like bringing cutlery to the table before the meals, looking out...for any customers trying to attract attention instead of passing tables without making eye contact. If there is a wait for meals, maybe come to the table and apologise for it. Waiting 45 minutes would be more acceptable if these easy courtesies were applied.More

Yes we have spent two evenings in one week, outside under fairy lights and beside heaters! Great atmosphere, great main meals and delicious desserts😋. Very well done to all at the White Horse.... we loved it ... thank you...

Well done Paul and the team for compiling such a good GF menu even in these difficult times. Plenty of choice for my daughter Georgia and I. The rest of my family had very good starters and mains, very nice bottle of house red. Good...ambience, safe and C19 secure throughout. Will return asap. Very good value for money too. Excellent waiting staff.More

Just had a lovely meal and delicious dessert - plus the added bonus of 50% off food, which we hadn't realised was the case when we booked. We'll definitely be back after lockdown.

Lovely decorated little pub near where we were staying. Saw it was 50% off food when making a booking so we went. Food was great! I had the steak and my husband had the steak & ale pie which he said was the best bit...of food he’s had out for a long time! Fresh side salad and good chips with the meals. Would definitely recommend the food here!More

I met a friend here for lunch, as she had visited some years ago and recalled it was very good for food. Sadly our lunch was a little disappointing, my chicken with port and Stilton sauce tasted ok, but didn't look very appealing. My friends...burger was OK, the gourmet chips were pretty ordinary. A shame, but never mind.More

Two of us met in this easily found pub, on the promise of a super lunch. Actually it was a little disappointing, although Covid 19 arrangements were in place. We understood there was a restricted menu, the chicken in port and Stilton sauce sounded good...and tasted OK, but looked quite unappealing. My friend had a burger, which was pretty ordinary. There were only four of us in the pub, on Thursday lunch time, which whilst understandable, was disappointing. I don't think I would rush back.More

Called for lunch in our way to our accommodation. Plenty of Covid measures in place and we enjoyed jacket potatoes which were delicious. Added bonus was when we came to pay there was 50% off as they continued the Eat Out to Help Out scheme...of their own choice.More
