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.

My husband and I booked the white horse for our 5th wedding anniversary dinner. We have been a few times previously and have always enjoyed ourselves. As always, the food was gorgeous... especially the pigeon starter... lush! The owner is always amazingly welcoming and social. A new waiter was being trained and he was very attentive to us. Pretty pricy... More

Not been to the white horse for some time, first impressions, old world charm with a contemporary feel, exceptionly clean, a loo worth a visit, lovely garden with sheep, pigs, and guard dog geese, and a lovely lunch, with excellent service. My friend and I both opted for the rack of lamb with dauphinois, greens with broad beans and peas,... More

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

Both my fiancé and myself attended the local village gastro pub last weekend, as we were entertaining some friends for the evening. We chose 'The White Horse' in Compton Bassett for several reasons, It is highly recommended in all the local dining reviews, We have had several outstanding meals since moving to the area, The pub has a welcoming environment...
