The White Rabbit for lunch was a most enjoyable event. This was a mid week just after 2pm visit, and so with a possible lunchtime crowd timely passing, we arrived a very pleasant post lunch calm. The decor is what initially greets you. A well presented colonial feel and warm wood. The illuminated bar is the first thing that greets... More

We all went there on a works leaving do, there was about 40 of us. The room we were in was really nice with a big log fire. The service was really good for a big party and the food was lovely for quite a nice price. Very happy with everything and will go back and recommend to friends.

The same happened with dessert even though most of the desserts were... More

We go here once a year, to meet with friends who seem to like it more than we do. Sadly, each time I've been the White Rabbit has been let down by a). incredibly slow service and b). very, very average food. This year, the service was once again far too slow. The problem appears to be that the bar... More
