Visited in August 2015 on Sunday afternoon. Overall the experience was very good, the staff were friendly and the service was great. The location of The White Horse is very good for anyone wanting to visit Rutland waters, where there are lots of activities to do such as walking, cycling and various water sports. The only thing I was disappointed... More

We came for Sunday lunch in July. The food was fabulous and reasonably price. sadly the service was appalling! Young staff who had obviously received no training, we had to keep getting up to find someone to get sauces, cutlery, drinks etc. At no point were we asked if our meals were ok A few hours of training would make...

we live locally and booked in for lunch for 6 people. Positives: the food was excellent all round. Negatives: we were constantly bombarded with flies at our table in the restaurant. They were landing on our drinks glasses, on the table, on our heads and hands. We did ask the waitress if they had any fly spray - she said... More

We arrived not knowing whether we would find anywhere on a Monday to eat in the evening , but we wondered down to the White Horse which was two villages away from where we were staying and found to our delight that this pub welcomed us in and we ordered a meal with some local real ale to drink.

Considering we arrived (4 adults and two children) without booking on Sunday 28th June, lunch time they fitted us in and provided an excellent lunch for us all.Being a Coeliac their response was positive telling me what I could have or which on the menu could be adapted. The food was well cooked and delicious. Our 2 grandchildren left clean... More

We booked this accommodation believing it to be a traditional pub with accommodation only to find when we arrived that it had recently changed hands; a fact that we had not been made aware of. It now classed as a gastro pub with rooms. The accommodation was clean but basic. Dinner itself was poor with one dish overcooked. The portions... More

Looked nice, however welcome from staff was poor, they appeared to do their best to ignore us and not serve us, food was quite nice, nothing exceptional. However being asked to pay for dinner when ordering was like being in MacDonalds, think the staff were very judgemental which was incredibly insulting. No I wouldn't go there again and i wouldn't...

My partner and I was hoping for a late lunch and having been to a few pubs in the area we came across the white horse and they were still serving food. We were greeted and shown to our table. The surroundings were warm for a cold Sunday. My partner decided on the triple meat and I had the salmon... More
