Superb Sunday Lunch

Had a lovely Sunday lunch. Beef was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were to our taste. Asked for extra gravy but no problem. Will definitely visit again.

It is not easy to park near to the White Horse. The pub was crowded. We had booked a table. The service was very slow, which was due to the small kitchen and only three chefs to cook all the meals. Our food was ok, but not exceptional. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. The ambience of the restaurant was... More

I went here for a works lunch with some colleagues and it's a lovely country pub. The outdoor area is huge and we were able to sit outside in the sun. There appeared to be a great looking BBQ to the side of the pub garden but this wasn't in use that day which was a shame because it was... More

I live in the village and am spoilt for choice but this one is as good as any. Lovely setting, great menu and friendly staff. Am doing the carb-free thing at moment and they changed menu to accommodate without hesitation. Go try, it's great

We were unfortunate to visit on a day when the chef was ill and they were short staffed. This resulted in pretty slow service. However our Sunday roast lunch was excellent when it arrived. Waitress very apologetic about delay. Plenty of room for the younger members of the family to play in the garden. We were impressed enough to try... More

Ate here on a spur of the minute decision. The food was well presented, nice sized portions and very well seasoned. Ate downstairs in the lounge area. The drinks were a little pricy but all in all, we thought it was worth it.

All the meals served looked good, a friend particularly enjoyed the tapas selection. The staff were friendly and efficient, and we're clued up about my meeting gluten free food

Atmosphere was great and very busy (always a good sign) customer service was great very attentive. Only issue I had was that the food I ordered was warm and not hot, kind of as if it has been warmed up from cold but not all the way through!

Myself and 5 of my lovely friends ate here for Sunday Lunch. The most beautiful roast beef with every trimming followed by a fantastic sticky toffee pudding. The rest of table chose the duck for main and mint cheescake for dessert and they practically licked the plates. Id have given 5 stars if theyd not put the service charge on... More

I've had food and drink in The White Horse on a number of occasions and in general it's OK. They do a great steak however, they can't seem to keep a good pint of bitter. This could almost be forgiven were it not for a miserable female member of the bar staff. I won't be back.
