If you only have a couple of days to get away, you could go to Wiltshire, great! You could go to Wiltshire AND stay in The White Horse Compton Bassett to make your break even better. 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

I stayed at the White Horse after a work colleague had told me how special this B & B is.... and I wasn't disappointed. My room was spotless, well equipped and nicely furnished, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Thoughtful touches too, such as homemade biscuits and a choice of still or sparkling water in your... More

We had a lovely stay here after finding it on Tripadvisor. I think the accommodation being separate from the pub is the best of both worlds, quiet but handy! We ate there in the evening and it was excellent. Beautiful setting, lots to do nearby so we hope to return for a longer stay. The room we had had a... More

We booked our 1 night stay on Late rooms in a last minute flurry of excitement (very unlike us) and as such were a little anxious at what may await. We shouldnt have been. The area is outstandingly beautiful and has an air of calm and serenity. The B&B is separate from the pub which gives it privacy and is... More

A lovely village and a very attractive pub with great character. Unfortunately the bedrooms are in a rather drab modernish block at the back of the pub. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, but the bathroom was very small and we felt the room was overpriced. the meal in the evening was good, but again overpriced. The bill for... More

Set in a lovely village, the White Horse is a real gem. It's an unpretentious setting with good quality food that has a nice mix of exciting and traditional dishes. The prices were very reasonable considering the quality on offer. The owner was extremely friendly and happy to see that all her guests were having an enjoyable meal. It's a... More

The accommodation is in a separate block at the back of the inn. We had a room at the back overlooking the field so it was very quiet. The owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful, but all the staff were lovely. We were surprised the rooms were about to undergo refurbishment as we thought it looked great! We will definitely...
