We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and were allowed to go to the room even though we were a bit early for check in. The beds were so comfortable and everything was spotless and to a high standard. There were tea/coffee making facilities with herbal teas as well. There were also crisps and biscuits provided. The breakfast in the... More

My husband and I ate here on Wed 22nd July, as we were staying just up the road. We got a free amuse bouche each of gazpacho and bread, which was unexpected, followed by our mains of belly pork and steak. The food is delicious, looks beautiful on a plate and is served by really pleasant and friendly people -... More

We were a party of 4 staying overnight in 2 rooms on Saturday the 25th July, 2015.2 days prior to our stay we enquired if it was possible to use any room to get changed around midday as we will have travelled for approx. 5 hours and were attending a function at the fabulous Bowood Hotel that afternoon. We were... More

Super room and ensuite, all quality products and facilities. Teas various, coffee etc, bottled water, biscuit container, crisps. French door to the sitting out area to watch the geese and sheep! Very comfortable... More

I don't usually write reviews for places we've stayed, but The White Horse really deserves a mention: lovely rooms in the grounds of the pub and restaurant, superb food, lovely helpful staff, and children-friendly atmosphere. Thank you!

We were looking for a place to eat on our journey from Hertfordshire to Devon. Reading the reviews online, The White Horse seemed like a good choice and not far from the M4. We were so glad we did. From the interior decor, cleanliness, warm welcome and above all fantastic food we couldn't fault our experience. Also, it was so... More

Had a meal here 2 weeks ago (just now back from our hol). I can not speak highly enough of the welcome, service, food and ambience provided by this place. We were based in Calne (not great) and ate in several places within 10 miles - the White Horse is easily the best place to eat in the area. The... More

We came here for our birthday and all without exception had the most fantastic meal, the Sunday roast from heaven. The hostess with the mostest is an understatement. We will be back but not soon enough for me. Well done everyone

Well worth a visit, excellent Sunday roasts, with very friendly service and great value for money. The starter of crab was very tasty, the roast beef was second to none, plenty of veg and massive Yorkshire puds. A big thank you to the staff, we will be back.
