We often choose to drive out to the white horse inn for a meal rather than heading into the city centre. There is always something on the menu that takes my fancy and everything I've tried so far has been very good. Reasonably priced too! Will continue to visit in the future

Waited for about 30 minutes for starter, when it arrived it was cold. Cullen skink tasted like fishy cream with bits of fish through it no time spent on that dish. Brothers nachos wasn't even cooked and cheese looked like it had Been melted in microwave. Sunday roast was all fatty and dry and the chef serving had a really... More

Visited with my husband and daughter. Food was ok and service was good. However, there was a table of four men who were resident in the hotel that continually did FaceTime on their phones, passing the phones around or played loud music on their phones. It was not what I expected and I would have thought it would have been... More

After two attempts to get my starter I eventually cancelled it, main course was average at best, and it was refreshing to get out of the place, I think repeated changes in management have done nothing to maintain continuity and consistency from good food last year, good location and nice decor but food a disappointment

As a team we got this wrong. We failed to place the order for your starter course. This is unacceptable. It is understandable that this ruined your visit and I apologies for this. I would be delighted to have you back for a meal on us. If you contact the Hotel directly, confirming who you are, we will meet the... More

Wife and I popped in to the White Horse on Sunday as we could not be bothered cooking. Were delighted to be able to choose from a lovely specials menu as well as the normal menu. We shared a starter of delicious scallops. For the main event my wife choose roast salmon and I went for the mixed grill meat... More

We both agreed this was one of the worst meals ever. Nachos had very little cheese, reconstituted chicken on top, and soaked in canned chilli sauce. Steak pie had very little beef, undercooked pastry. The fahitas were saturated in a very powerful powdered seasoning, cheap reconstituted chicken again and the side order of chips were soggy and actually smelled strongly... More
