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

My fiancé and I stumbled upon this pub whilst taking her parents out for the day. The young ladies and gent serving our table were very kind and helpful even though it looked to be a busy service. The food was excellent!! We were told by other customers that the menu changes almost ever week. Definitely worth travelling back for... More

Brought the kids to the pub for dinner, they had a good variety on the menus, and was very good value for money. The portions were big for the food and the service was very quick and helpful. Thank you for a great meal and I shall be there again soon.

Lovely friendly pub- welcomes dogs and kids. We visited for the first time in ages for a quick meal. The menu was great with many things I wanted to try. I had tandoori chicken on flat bread, which was very tasty. My daughter had an amazing venison burger. Food tasted freshly prepared, portion sizes were perfect and service was efficient,... More

Moved to Hinton St. Mary in March 2014. I had no WiFi or broadband. I saw the White Horse advertised Free WiFi, so I popped in to collect a few emails. The welcome was astounding. I was made to feel very welcome as was my German Shepherd who was then spoilt with numerous treats from behind the bar. I have... More

I have eaten here on two occasions and popped in for a drink on several. The food is fantastic, the service is second to none and the landlord and landlady and lovely. I would recommend The White Horse to anyone, and have in fact recommend it to several! Great job guys! Will be in again soon.

We had a pint at this pretty pub today and sat outside in the sunshine. Lovely pretty and quiet village, the menu looks good (maybe another day). There were bowls of olives, stuffed vine leaves (yum) and bowls with big sqaures of cheeese for customers to help themselves. very generous. Very friendly locals too. Wish I lived closer!

I enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal with my friends. The food is presented beautifully, great size portions and delicious. The staff were incredibly friendly and the service was great. It's great to have a pub in Sturminster again where you can go for a good meal. The menu isn't your standard pub food and it's hard to choose what... More

Having not visited for some time, we heard the pub had new landlords. We arrived on a sunny Saturday afternoon, the pub was busy and there was a relaxed atmosphere, we received excellent service, really good food, generous portions with an imaginative menu and in beautiful surroundings. We sat in the garden which was well maintained and comfortable garden furniture.... More
