Booked this for a corporate golf event for12. Decided to go with these guys due to location slap bang next to the Trump course. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The food was superb and the service was as good as I've had. Euan and his team really made it an. Enjoyable stay. The rooms were clean but basic, those... More

I had the best afternoon tea, possibly in Aberdeen/shire and I have tried quite a few, at the White Horse recently with two of my girl friends. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and looks great, very cosy with a log burning stove and with a Scottish, country feel. We had a lovely table set next to the fire and... More

My husband and I had a superb Saturday night supper in the white horse inn, the service was excellent , the food was delicious, I had fisherman pie , my husband had beef and harass pie and for desert I had creme brulee which was absolutely amazing. Thanks to Mel and the team for very enjoyable meal.

We had family over from Los Angeles visiting so we decided to take them for afternoon tea as they had never been before. There were 11 of us plus a 11 month old altogether and it was great. The selection of cakes were to die for, the sandwiches were of good variety and all on lovely fresh ciabatta bread. We... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Glad you enjoyed your afternoon tea, we think it is important when something as popular as an afternoon tea is now a days to come up with something a little bit different than what other places are doing, it helps keep it fresh and exciting. The changer in the mens toilet... More

The only thing that prevented this review being excellent, was the disappointing service we received when we arrived. We were shown to our table and had to wait almost 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged we were even there! However, once we had our order taken it was plain sailing from there. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and... More

Omg. A well needed face lift of both the restaurant and food. Lovely relaxed environment and the food was fab. We decided a couple of years ago to never go back but after hearing that there was a new chef and renovations decided to give it a go. Definitely going back.

This was a spur-of-the-minute decision for a Friday night family meal out here, as we couldn't face the heaving hordes in the city - and it turned out to be a good judgement.We were welcomed by very pleasant smiley staff, and able to choose our own table.The interior was completely unrecognizable from the last time we'd visited some 6 years...
