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.

When we visit our friends in Stamford we usually go out for a meal. We have been to the White Horse twice and love it. The menu is quite small but that is often a good sign that it is not fast food. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff were lovely, service good and the food was great. We... More

We visited this lovely country pub on a Sunday lunchtime. It was very busy which is always a good sign. There was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming. There was only a short wait for the food and a wait which was well worth it. The food was all freshly made and was delicious. We had starters... More

Claire and Steve offered a friendly, hospitable and warm welcome to our stay. The staff are so accommodating and sincere eager to please your requirements. The ambience is perfect for those chilly days with the roaring log fires in the restaurant and the bar area where you can eat. The menus are varied to accommodate vegetarian as well as hearty...

Table booked in advance, shown to grotty tables at end of function room laid out for a big party. Sole source of heat (log burner) had clearly only been lit within the hour, asked for more heat or to be moved. Told that was it and they were fully booked. Waitress was at best intimidating and at worst escaped from... More

A very nice room , not huge but very comfortable and TV/Video, recently redecorated. The pub is furnished well, two log fires, food was excellent except for a bit of tough crackling on the Belly Pork but otherwise very tasty and beautifully presented. Location close to the A1 was a bonus and good value
