First date

My date actually chose this place and I thought it was just a pub, however there is a restaurant out back and it's actually a nice place to have dinner. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly. I would recommend this place. It's tucked away but certainly worth a visit.

This is a pleasant place in every way- tucked away in the middle of the old village. The Sunday lunch menu (need to book) has excellent alternatives to roasts - the coq au vin was absolutely delicious. Sea trout special also, but not a great portion. On the expensive side for a pub, but worth it. Friendly service and range... More

Another pub that has grown a restaurant out the back to survive. Curiously we had a choice of booking times 30 minutes apart although not at our preferred time right in the middle. Not sure why as the place was never full while we were there. The pub part is yet another good comfortable local and the restaurant is ordinary... More

A party of 10 of us came here to celebrate a 90th Birthday. It was a Wednesday steak night and the bar area was absolutely crammed and extremely noisy. I initially thought we had made a mistake booking here but the restaurant at the back was quiet and we were the only customers. Most of us opted for the steak... More

Hi JoJo, Thank you very much for your review, it's lovely to know we were the venue for such a special birthday. I'm ever so sorry that you were pressured into vacating your table after such a lovely meal - this is not common practice at all, and had I been in your shoes, I'd have felt equally put-out by...

Had a lovely meal hear last week. Excellent choices on the menu. Some traditional and some very different. All the regular pizzas and burgers. I can recommend the sea trout with vegetable curry chowder. Very tasty.

I have visited the white horse twice for steak night. The first time was fabulous and I couldn't wait to return. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed when I returned last week. Firstly the girls that served us were dressed in thick woolly jumpers which looked very scruffy and unprofessional for working in a restaurant. The steaks were cooked very... More
