Very short notice booking so could only get a twin room that would take the dog. Clean and tidy, typical country pub accommodation. Nice real ales but only 2 of the 3 pumps on. Bit pricy at £3.70 a pint, that's £1.20 more than my local village pub, but then its location is very good for Rutland Water. Dogs allowed... More

We have stayed here ever year for the last 6yrs, never again. For complaining they refused to serve us drinks after the alleged meal, The manager wouldn't speak to us and left it it a young barmaid to sort out, we felt sorry for her being put in this position

We visited the White Horse just after the previous couple took over in 2013. The food was great then, bar service a little slow, but overall a very enjoyable evening. We visited again with friends this week and what a change! Very limited menu and the food we received was not at all enjoyable. I had lamb which was very... More

We booked here at very short notice through a search engine having driven past many times. On arrival we checked in though the lady checking us in didn't know what time breakfast was. We went to our room which was comfortable and headed out for a wander at nearby Rutland Water On our return we had a drink in the... More

We stopped here for some food on a Sunday after walking round Rutland Water. Because we had our dogs with us we sat outside. The food we ordered came quite quickly. Being vegetarian I ordered goats cheese salad starter and some chips. I'm glad I ordered the chips because the salad was next to nothing (although very tasty). The chips... More

This charming inn is well placed for Rutland water and has a really good restaurant. The staff were were curtiois and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The evening meal was also very good for us. However, I cannot recommend that you stay here. The rooms are noisy and uncomfortable. They did move us when we complained about the noise... More

We decided to come here as in the past we have had a lovely meal. When I booked I asked if we could bring a dog and they said yes as long as we eat in the bar. Turned up with the dog and felt like everyone was looking at us. They had not got us booked in and we... More

Our one night stay at the White Horse was quite pleasant. We were housed in what I imagine was a converted stable block and the room was clean and bright. The ensuite bathroom was OK but would benefit from some new bath sealant as the black mould does look a bit grubby. On the plus side there was plenty of... More

Me and my husband have been before and really enjoyed it, but it was a good while ago, and as always, you never no!! So after a bit of research I decided to book for Mother's Day lunch. We where not disappointed, even far as saying the best Sunday lunch we have had out! The place itself has a nice... More

Just happened to be in the vicinity and not one for for "Pub Grub", we popped in for a drink and a packet of crisps. What a revelation! Really friendly and efficient service. The food was delicious, and plenty of it. Zoe was 5 star! We will certainly going back and would recommend 'The White Horse Inn' without hesitation.
