Me and my fiancé have once again returned for what was once again a brilliant experience. As was rumoured in my last review by another customer, the menu was once again different but no less exceptional! The wine bottles turned into makeshift candle holders added a romantic feel to the night. The staff still remembered us so took time out... More

I came here for an evening meal after having a very good lunch here a couple of months ago. The food was excellent but I found the menu a bit limited. I did overhear a man from a table of six comment on how good the food was and that all the diners from that table were served at the... More

A lucky find for us. A really nice friendly pub with all four meals, from an interesting menu, being excellent. Low key but very good service. Not cheap (and I can see from the way the bill was presented how larger groups have reported issues with their bills). I suspect we will be adding this to our short list of... More

We visited as a group of walkers having telephoned in advance to say that we were coming and request consent to park a couple of cars in the car park whilst on our walk. We arrived to be warmly welcomed, offered a drink and directed to our already prepared table in the restaurant area with its bare wood tables, comfortable... More

We visited the White Horse on a recommendation from our B&B, as the management here have changed in the last year. We were glad we did. The food was very well cooked and the service superbly friendly and personal. Even on a Tuesday (closed Monday) the restaurant was full and the bar full of locals - that says it all.... More

Recommended by our host at the Old Post Office B&B, we walked to this delightful pub and had a really delicious meal. It was a lovely start to our holiday.

The meal was the best we have had in the area during our holiday. My wife had the Steak and I the Steak & Ale pie (home made by the owner... More

Me and three friends had the Sunday roasts today and the food was outstanding. The meat was tender and cooked to perfection. It was accompanied by a range of very unusual but delicious vegetables - new carrots, squashes of different colours, different coloured beet root etc.. The dessert was also delicious. Chocolate tart with pistachio Ice cream. The service was... More
