We stayed in the hotel recently and ate in the restaurant both nights we were there. The food was excellent, well cooked and plentiful! There menu was fairly varied and there was an extensive specials board. The pudding board looked great too - although after the huge portions I just couldn't manage to fit one in! The restaurant was fairly... More

We booked a table on Sunday as we were hoping to try their carvery lunch. We were pleased to get 3 different meats (beef, turkey and ham) and a large selection of vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, carrots, parsnips and cauliflower cheese). Food was very tasty, restaurant looked great, they also had good ales. Atmosphere has improved a lot since we last... More

We stayed for a weekend in this incredibly friendly and welcoming hotel - and had dinner in the restaurant on two of the three nights. The food was very good (and huge portions!) and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. We will definitely use this place again whenever we are visiting the area.

I reviewed the White Mare in 2013, giving it bad review. However 6 months on, what a change for the better. My husband and I have eaten here numerous times over the last month and the food and service has been very good. In fact the whole atmosphere has changed, making it warm and welcoming. It's good to have the... More

We visited the White Mare on the recommendation of a work colleague. When I told him of our experience he said "you should NEVER go there on a Monday" which we unfortunately did! The limited menu became ever more limited as the evening wore on. I joked with my wife that there would be no point in her getting a... More

The White Mare when you visited was being run by a management company on behalf of the brewery. We have taken on the lease of The White Mare in Jan 2014 and now are trying to rebuild the reputation of the venue. We serve mainly homemade and locally sourced food for the restaurant and have an ever changing special board.... More

I Have on numerous times been here for meals here, it used to be my Mothers favourite. I went with my husband a couple of weeks ago for a meal.

We are the new tenants since Jan 2014 and are locals to the village so the aim is to bring it back to the friendly and welcoming place it used to be when your mother enjoyed visiting the venue.

4 members of our family went to the White Mare on a quiet Tuesday night. They had run out of the beer my husband ordered and I was served with Kronenburg lager after ordering Kopperberg fruit cider. After that was sorted out we ordered our meals. We waited rather a long time considering there were only 2 other diners. The... More

I am sorry to hear about the poor service and food you received at the venue. The place has gone through a number of temporary management companies where the service and the good reputation has suffered.

I returned to the pub for lunch, following it's reopening after a number of weeks closure. The pub is under the management of a surly caretaker landlord; the most important fact that I gleaned was that the original chef was no longer with them (having gone to the Stanley Arms at Calderbridge). I attempted to eat an inedible steak pie,... More
