My husband and I and two friends regularly enjoy dining at the White Horse and last night was no exception! There was a good choice of dishes on the menu - delicious pub grub if you want it or 'a la carte' which we chose from. Tasty chilli prawns, spinach and ricotta tortellini and a scotch egg with gruyere cheese... More

I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a wedding party. My arrival ended up being far later than scheduled and I called ahead to make arrangements and see what the options were, if any. Tara assured me that it wouldn't be a problem and arranged a self-check in, leaving me her home phone number in case of anything.... More

We booked a table for my husband's birthday last night via email, having already seen the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. They were quick to respond to my messages and accommodating of changes in our booking. On arriving it was quiet and we were warmly welcomed both by the host and the lovely wood fire in the bar area on a... More

Our last 2 visits to the White Horse were for Sunday Lunch. However, 6 of us ate there last Saturday night. It was, quite simply, a fantastic meal. As always we had a great welcome from the staff and the service was first class (indeed, at one point we had to ask them to wait 10 minutes between courses). The... More

We have not been here for a while mainly just because our lives don't involve being in the area much anymore but traveling to deliver pressies gave us the idea. We were lucky to get a table just before the arrival of a big party in a perfect spot in the restaurant. One can eat in the bar but this... More

DELICIOUS FOOD, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF ALL WITHIN A BEAUTIFUL PUBLIC HOUSE. Myself and my family 13 of us in totally ranging from 85-3 years old visited The white Horse Inn at Compton Bassett today to celebrate my grandmothers 85th Birthday. The whole experience was second to none. Initially the landlady Tara could not be more helpful in booking the... More

Had a lovely Christmas meal at the White Horse, again. Enjoyed a delicate starter of scallops and a venison main. This is really top-draw cuisine. Christmas pudding was gorgeous with a perfect brandy sauce that was luxuriously rich. I've eaten this month in some of London's Michelin-starred restaurants including the Ledbury, Landau and Galvin at Windows and the cuisine at... More

We enjoyed a really delicious mid-week lunch and everyone in the party were very happy with their food. The sausages & mash was scrummy followed by the christmas pudding. The waitress service was perfect and everything was sparkling clean too. We will be back soon.

Have been lucky enough to get a room twice this month at this popular Inn. Have tried several times when I've been working in the area but has been fully booked. As always a warm welcome here and not just from the log fire burning in the bar. What a great team. You get treated like a VIP even when... More
