Dog friendly

Always excellent food and friendly service. The Fish and Chips on a Wednesday are superb. This Pub/Restaurant is dog friendly which helps to make it people friendly as well.

We had a great retired doctor's lunch here for 8. Always welcoming and this time served by Gary the owner himself! Great food-particularly enjoyed the grilled salmon. Also the new idea of mini-puddings and coffee. Will be returning.

Our group of ten were greeted and treated royally at this lovely country pub. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent and matched by the service. We had a wonderful evening from start to finish and will definitely be returning for more ( especially in my case the fantastic treacle tart !! )

My wife and I eat here often and even celebrated a significant birthday here with friends. Food and service are great and I would highly recommend it.

Recently had another delicious family meal at this great pub/restaurant. We were in the contemporary Gallery Room which features paintings of food. These enhanced our appetite! Wonderfully diverse range of food via their blackboard system which showcases local and homemade produce, to suit everyone. Staff were helpful, fun and approachable. Particularly enjoyed the roast beef meal with whopping sized Yorkshire... More

One of our party became ill as we entered the pub and the landlord, his wife and staff could not have been more helpful in helping to look after him. They also booked a fixed rate taxi for his two hour drive home and offered use of the landline. Having got over that problem we had excellently kept beer followed... More

Three for early dinner mid week. We have been a number of times under past ownership and I for one was secretly hoping for better things but I was a tad underwhelmed. The pub itself has three distinct areas; the cosy bar where drinks and food are ordered but not set up really for languishing as the menu is writ... More

Went for Saturday lunch with my wife, daughter and husband. First surprise was how few people were there, around 10 I think. We decided to eat in the garden as it was such a nice day. The boss did warn us that they were having a problem with wasps, and he certainly wasn't wrong! They were everywhere, and in large... More

Thank you for visiting the White Horse on Saturday. I would like to address your comments. The wasps in the garden are out of our control at this time of year on a hot summers day. We have old fruit trees that do attract them, as in any country garden. We do put sugar liquid pots around the garden to... More
