Through the charity I work for, I organised lunch for a small group at The White Horse, on the recommendation of the owners of the nearby garden we'd visited. What an excellent recommendation! I phoned in advance to ask whether they could produce a three course menu with three choices for each course and to find out if we could... More

Having lived in the area for three years and carried out extensive testing, I'd say that the White Horse in Welwyn is the best pub in the area. They have a good range of beers (real ales as well as lagers) and some decent wines available by the glass, and the pub itself is beautiful after a recent refurbishment with... More

Looking at these reviews, we may have gone to a different place! On a positive, staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The bill came to £70 for 2 - one small glass of wine each and a shared starter. Neither the quantity of quality justified the price. We ordered the steak but were not asked how we would like it...

Hi Jan, Thanks for your review, we appreciate all feedback and use it as a benchmark to constantly better ourselves. I'm very sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us on Saturday; we're usually highly-praised on the quality of our Steaks and the general size of our portions. It sounds like you had two Fillet Steaks, 8oz at £22.95 each... More

We held our Grandsons Christening celebration for 75 guests at the White Horse and Adam and his team were very accommodating in menu choice and arrangements for the day. We were planning to use the function room and they had kindly erected a marquee in case of bad weather, which we didn't need and made use of the wonderful garden... More

When you need a business to organise a barbecue for around 30-35 people, this pub is the place to call. They were totally flexible with the menu and more than happy to communicate via any medium requested. On the day they were very kind and served up amazing food, I actually went up for seconds! Very impressed, and thoroughly recommended.

A very welcoming pub with a great range of beers is the first thing you notice. However when you are lead to your table to a very attractive dining area do you see the fantastic food that is on offer. As it was Sunday we sat at one of the two carvery sittings - oh joy. I enjoy my food... More

Hi! Thanks for your kind review about our Sunday Carvery; what great feedback! It's great when we hear what we're doing is paying off, and our Head Chef Luke is always chuffed when customers compliment him direct. We do take great pride in the cooking of our beef, slow-roast for 12 hours at just 62 degrees after being seared at... More

My wife and I dropped into The White Horse for a drink one Sunday afternoon and saw on a Wednesday they had a 'Steak Night' so we decided to give it a try. For £15 you get an 8oz Sirloin, 2 sides and a drink, plus a sauce of your choice. I had a fosters (not my favorite but there... More

Hi Colin, Thanks very much for your review of our brilliant value Steak Night, I'm very glad you enjoyed your meal. I really appreciate it when we get well-written, objective reviews that pick out good elements of our food and service, and areas we can tweak to improve our offering (that is, essentially what Tripadvisor should be utilised for). We... More

The White Horse is a friendly local which really over-delivers where it counts; service, drinks and food are all to the highest quality in an atmosphere which is relaxed but not to the point of being casual. Of the number of meals I have enjoyed here, you really get an honest plate of well though out, well prepared food. Menus... More

Hi Sue, Thanks very much for your review of Sunday Lunch, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. To hear that news has spread to Hampton Court all the way from sleepy Welwyn Village is a brilliant testament to the hard work the team here are putting in to the food and service. We are currently refurbishing our garden ahead of... More
