We ordered hotpot and drinks without knowing the price but on paying we felt it was very good value... read more

Steve and Lorna have really made this pub work. The Burns night was a tremendous success, Lorna providing a wonderful three-course meal, all home cooked, and the Piper was great. As a Northerner who has lived only a year in Suffolk, I can say that I have attended many Burns nights in the past, but this one was right up... More

This is a pub, not a restaurant, so they only offer a limited range of food but a good range of beer. I'm very suspicious about the review "Oh My" (below). I've visited this pub twice in the past 2 months (I'm not a local, but its a great place to start/end a country walk), once at lunchtime, once in... More

Such a shame to have another disappointment in our local pub. We felt very uncomfortable as we felt as if we were sitting in someone's front room... A young lady was slumped watching tv, while another lady was on her laptop. I haven't rated the food as haven't eaten there and can't say I would.. A real pity as it's... More

Only just re-opened and the place already has a great feel to it. Popped in at the weekend; no meals yet but made to feel very welcome. Can't wait to see how the place develops. Definitely a great start - we will be back!

Did a walk from this pub on Saturday, called in to ask permission to park and was honestly told no hot food ect as they had only been in 3 weeks. Came back to a very friendly reception, had a couple of lemonades and a chat. These people need to be given a chance to get this pub a good... More

Our friends in the village have just told us about the close-down again of the White Horse - a pub we have known and used over many years. They tell me the hope is that it will re-open again, and be run well by tenants who understand the basics of pub operation. Efficient drink and food service, friendly staff and... More

As a group of 6 (4 adults + 2 children) we booked early on the day of our visit for a table for the carvery. We arrived on time and were not greeted by any staff. Only one member of staff was visible, in the bar. We joined the queue behind another 2 couples. The barman had to serve the... More

On a previous visit to Finningham we called at the White Horse, and found it closed. Driving through recently we stopped as there were blackboards outside advertising beers and a lunch menu at £3.99. The menu inside was a list of sandwiches.The two real ales were Woodfordes Wherry - OK but a bit flat, and Ghost Ship, the least interesting... More
