My partner Denise and I were in Wiltshire chasing/photographing a mainline steam rail tour (call us sad, geeks, whatever) and we had seen in The Good Pub Guide that this pub was one of their favourites. We weren't disappointed in any way. On arrival, the owner Tara greeted us with a warm welcome, and we ordered starters and mains from... More

We had an early dinner on Saturday evening and had the restaurant to ourselves which didn't bother us at all. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Nice touches were the amuse Bouche and homemade warm rolls with the starter. The staff were great

We had dined at The White Horse a few months ago, for Sunday lunch, when we came across this beautiful country Inn purely in passing and I have to say it was probably one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The owner greeted us personally and was a perfect hostess. We immediately felt welcome and were seated without... More

Many thanks for bringing this to my attention. I met you on your first visit and as you have mentioned everything was outstanding, it is regretful this wasn't the same on your second visit! Sundays are always fully booked and to avoid disappointment booking is always recommended, however, it is extremely disappointing every effort wasn't made to try and accommodate... More

It was our third visit with family for a dining treat and it did not disappoint. The food is of a consistent good quality with a good choice on the menu to suit all tastes A complimentary "amuse bouche" was served which was delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly without being "in your face" There was a pleasant lively... More

This place is a treat to have a room which looks onto a peaceful field of sheep and lambs. The important things in a BnB were well thought out: a really comfortable bed and pillows; spotlessly clean, good hospitality tray with fresh milk. The shower unfortunately was average. The pub next door had some good local ales in a great... More

The rooms are clean and stylish with comfortable quality beds and little touches like homemade biscuits. our room (3) looked out over the small paddock with geese, sheep and two adorable lambs. The food is excellent. lots of local footpaths if you enjoy leaving the car in the... More

We stayed 2 nights here as it was close to Avebury Stones and Lacock Abbey. The rooms are quiet as they are in a seperate building to the pub. They are clean and well appointed, even down to having home made biscuits provided. The food in the pub is excellent. We had lovely meals on both evenings. Couldn't manage three... More

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
