We visited The White Horse on a Friday night on a spur of the moment decision to find somewhere to eat. We had passed by this pub previously and thought it looked nice, but had no idea what it may be like. We arrived fairly early and the restaurant was already booked up, so we were offered a table in... More

Really lovely helpful staff. We had lunch when we arrived. It was delicious. We had a nice clean simple room, although they were a bit dated, and could do with a bit of a revamp. The breakfast was lovely, with lots of choice, and attentive, friendly service. Beautiful village.

My friend and I were escaping from our families to celebrate our significant birthdays and wanted a friendly pub/restaurant to stay in. It was... More

I went to this restaurant on a recommendation - booked in to secure a table - but I found the experience rather less than satisfactory. First I was made to feel very welcome on arrival - but seemed to get overlooked regarding ordering - however that was sorted and I asked for a pint plus a main course of sausages... More
