We arrived very early for our booking, hoping to use the room to change for a wedding we were going to - the staff could not have been more helpful! The room (family) was spacious and lovely, with a little terrace outside french doors. Sorry we didn't have the chance to sample the food as they were fully booked -... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to explore Wiltshire. Perfect for visiting all the towns and attractions in the local area. This village is a bit out of the way so lovely and peaceful but quick access to the main roads. Stylish, homely and comfortable rooms, everything to a high standard and including little extras like homemade cookies. Also warm!... More

I stayed at The White Horse Inn on business and was not disappointed. The room was very clean bright and had a lovely view with a patio area chair and table. After travelling and being on business all day it was the lovely touches that made my day. Biscuits in the room appeared to be home made :-) nice packet... More

Last night I was fortunate to attend the Tattinger Tasting evening and it was a wowee! If anyone doubted the price of £90 a head for 7 outstanding courses with selected premier champagne for each mouthwatering course plus the vibrant company of Tara and Danny the hosts, friendly locals who are in the know, fabulously professional staff and a connoisseur...

For my first trip to the UK I decided to stay at The White Horse Inn on my first night. This was one of the best choices that I could have possibly made! The White Horse Inn is conveniently located near Stonehenge and Avebury which are both worth a visit. The scenery in the area is beautiful. Rolling hills, large... More

As I prepare dinner tonight, my mind wanders back to last Tuesday evening at The White Horse. Well it has wandered there quite a lot since last week actually. Mr H and I had the most wonderful meal. To start we both had the scallops, a generouse portion and done to perfection. Next we both had chicken supreme, and boy... More

We have visited The White Horse several times and enjoyed drinks and meals from their excellent menu. However, I have not used the Pub for a large party of family and friends as I did on the 30th August 2014 for my wifes 70th birthday. After consulting Tara, who is the 'Front of House' Lady in charge; a very experienced... More

Rooms excellent and very good food in a traditional pub setting. Well appointed interior and nice bar area. Rooms are very smart with either balcony or patio. Only down side is the sound proofing in the room we stayed in was dreadful. Down stairs rooms really require the ability to open the windows in locked and secure mode at night... More

The White Horse Inn is on a classic english country lane about 4 miles north of Calne. Easy driving distance to Avebury, Malborough, and even Bath and Stonehenge if you make a day of it. The rooms are located in one separate building behind the main building that has a nice small pub and a great restaurant. They have a... More

Having decided to pay a visit to Avebury on our way back from the South Hams to London, the next decision was where to have lunch! Trip Advisor to the rescue. Having read the fabulous reviews on The White Horse in Compton Bassett, nowhere else would do. What a great decision that was! We weren’t disappointed. The pub itself is... More
