A really welcoming village pub, Friendly staff(especially the smiley pregnant lady) and great food in the restaurant, The rooms are fairly basic, Unimaginative decor but clean and everything worked, Its not a big pub so got pretty crowded but that all added to the atmosphere, The food in the restaurant was excellent, My rump of lamb was cooked perfectly and...

We spent a night here after a celebratory lunch for my husband's birthday. The food, both lunch and breakfast, was great, and the pub also accommodated us with sandwiches for dinner, despite the fact they were packed. The rooms are large and comfy, and the complimentary snacks a nice addition. Should also mention the lovely owner, who couldn't do enough... More

What a delightful find. My wife and I were visiting the area and wanted a country pub with good food and a comfortable place to sleep for the night, the white horse delivered and then some. The main building is half pub, half restaurant. The pub has a nice cosy welcoming feel and has a selection of ales, wines and... More

Beautiful quaint English country pub where 8 of us had Sunday lunch. The service we all remarked was excellent as well as the quality of the food, all set in a lovely location and charming pub. We all had Sunday roast and my roast beef was pink, tasty and tender with huge Yorkshire Puds (and not burnt, as are usually... More

Myself and two friends, who had not previously dined at the White Horse, chose an early Thursday evening (7.15 pm.) to give it a try. What a revelation! We entered the bar which was warm and very much in the traditional country inn style. We were given a warm welcome by the waitress who served us pre meal drinks before... More

Visited on Saturday for our pre Christmas dinner. Lovely pub atmosphere with welcoming staff who showed us to our table in the restaurant. Tables laid out with beautifully starched linen napkins, crackers and sparkling glassware. The pate was superb, the turkey succulent, the vegetables cooked to perfection, the crispy roasties the best I have had outside home, really nice stuffing... More

We visited today for a special lunch including a 5 year old. We were welcomed and seated very promptly with big smiles. I had looked at the menu online and knew what I wanted. We were not disappointed at all with the quality of lucious food that arrived that not only looked gorgeous but tasted it too! I would recommend... More
