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

A very homely cozy pub with a first class chef creating interesting dishes with mostly fresh local produce. Great value for the level of food and the friendly atmosphere is enhanced by the helpful staff and a lovely fireplace. Definitely worth a visit. Family run by Chef and his partner who make sure you have a lovely experience.

We have enjoyed delicious meals every time we come to this lovely local Pub. The atmosphere is friendly, plenty of drink choices and they have a very reasonably priced menu that changes regularly. Every meal we have eaten here has been delicious and lovely and fresh. A great find in a small village, one of our favourite places to eat

I took my family here for Sunday lunch due to the great reviews I had read previously about the place, I must say the food quality and taste was up to the standard stated by previous customers but we were somewhat disappointed with the lack of atmosphere, also I had to keep leaving the table to get the attention of...

very pleasant girl serving lunchtime and good beer , however lunch was so so, quite expensive for what we had ,compared with many good pubs but not exciting and the lamb burger very small. Ok as pub food goes but certainly not something to go back for . Would have liked to have seen woodburner going, although as we left... More

Great roast beef, Yorkshire pud and delicious veg followed by Eton mess. Easily adapted for gluten-free and very welcoming to our dog. Fab bar nibbles to start and some good local ciders. A really good find.

A nice place to have a very good meal in an informal environment with friendly staff. The food is well prepared, drinks taste good and even your wallet doesn't hardly notices this.
