The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. The menu changes regularly but you can rely on there being many choices that will appeal. I eat at this restaurant a couple of times a month.

On Sunday we had a fantastic time at the White Horse for a Christening. The chef cooked a fantastic homemade curry for our group of 20 people with pompadoms, homemade dips, nan bread and a large selections of sides. The service was excellent and all the staff were incredibly friendly and we had a wonderful time. Can highly recommend

Went out for dinner with my father and really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. Lovely service, scrummy food and a lovely choice of drinks. They have a pie and a catch of the day meaning the menu always changes, would recommend for anyone who wants a lovely relaxed meal.

Was looking for somewhere to have a meal before seeing a concert at The Exchange and called in here....unfortunately my 89yr old fussy fussy mother did not want anything offered. It was barbecue night and on entering pub can honestly say the customers were all a jolly crowd. They all told us as we passed through that the food was... More

My wife and I took our 11month old and 3.5 old sons here for lunch on Sat 28 Feb. The warm, friendly welcome was spot on, only having booked a table some 3 hours earlier. My wife found the pub detail on this site. I now see exactly what everyone has raved about. It is a traditional country pub (400yrs... More

The White Horse Inn is run by top chef Matthew. We have experienced Matthew's food delights on many occasions. Without exception the food he prepares is fresh and very tasty. If you are in the area then I would recommend you give it a try. Sue and Neil

I visited this pub a few years ago with a local friend and was not overly impressed. What a difference today when visiting with the same person. Firstly, very welcoming young lady at the bar and then a glance at the menu suggested we could be in for something good. Menu is a single sheet with perhaps 5 or 6... More

We went here when staying in Marnhull. Lovely, local pub with a restaurant as well. Fairly small but varied menu, that changes regularly. We had a delicious main course & pudding. Service was great. I would say that the paper A3 menu & sauces in plastic containers in a basket on the table let the place down a little. I... More
