We have now stayed here twice in the recent weeks...breakfast is superb and the cheery welcome of Edith (what would they do without her??) is a welcome bonus! Angie who has come in recently as manager does a fabulous job and orchestrates excellent service and hospitality at dinner. Claire the owner is charming and there is so much to commend... More

A lovely country pub - we were 2 families travelling to Rutland Water for a sailing event and this suited us perfectly. Spacious, clean family rooms, friendly staff and great food at the pub - both in the evening and for breakfast. Recommended.

We had lunch in the bar and, having not visited the pub since its refurbishment, we were very impressed. The menu was ver appealing and the food was excellent. The pub decor is lovely and it has a really pleasant atmosphere. Service was excellent too. I ate the stilton and broccoli soup Followed by the fish and chips which were... More

We stayed in Empingham village for a wks holiday in September. Whilst we were there we paid quite a few visits to this pub and loved it! I have to say we didnt eat there, but we drank plenty of the Timothy Taylors, and it was spot on!! Also the young girl waitress was very kind to our dog, bringing... More

We arrived at the White Horse at 7pm. The decor was very pleasant and our order both for food and drinks was taken soon after we arrived. The starters were satisfactory. By 8.15 I did say I would leave if the main course of a pork dish and fish and chips did not arrive fairly soon. The food then appeared.... More

Thank you for your review. Your one star rating however appears a little harsh when reading between the lines it was only the pork dish and the speed of service that let us down. I can only apologise for the time taken to serve you. I will feedback your comments to the kitchen and our supplier regarding our Grasmere Farm... More

I booked The White Horse due to location, we were attending a Windsurfing event nearby. I have a very mixed review on this establishment. Positives - Spotless Rooms - Lots of Parking - Great location ( ten mins drive to Sailing Club, Stamford and Oakham) - 'Most' staff are efficient and welcoming - Spacious Rooms and bathrooms - Lots of...

Yesterday went for lunch at this pub, had the sharing platter. This was probably the poorest sharing platter ever!!!!! 6 small slices of french bread, 4 slices mozzarella cheese, 4 paper thin slices salami, 6 slices paper thin slices another type of salami, 2 paper thin parma ham, tiny bowl of olives and tiny bowl of sundried tomato. This would... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you felt that the portion size for our sharing platter was not adequate for you and your dining partner. I should point out it is a 'starter' to share therefore unlikely to fill you up. I take exception to your comments about the décor of our building. The whole pub was... More

Went to eat on a Sunday at 6pm during a bank holiday weekend. It had clearly been a busy day and the staff look tired, but were friendly enough. We ordered 2 starters of the squid to share between 3. It took 45 minutes to arrive and for each starter (costing over £6) there were 3 breaded squid rings (£2... More

My wife and I travelled with our two young children and used the White Horse as an overnight stop over on our way to Norfolk and as such hired the family room which is located in the old stable block to the rear of the Inn. Upon arrival we were most impressed by the Inn's location within a picture postcard... More

Enjoyed our stay here near to Rutland Water, excellent choice of beers and wines and nice rooms with comfortable beds. The bar and waiting staff were excellent.  However, as a vegetarian it was disappointing to have only one vegetarian option - a salad at lunch and a risotto at dinner - out of the 14 available main courses (10 off...
