“Not good pub food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Pint was awful when I arrived. Barman said it was the first of the day, but that shouldn't really be my problem.

For starters I had something that sounded like a posh scotch egg on the specials menu but came in a stack with a deep-fried poached egg, black pudding and crispy parma ham. It was quite nice, but the poached egg was cooked solid, so effectively a hard-boiled egg, which spoilt the intended affect.

For main had fish and chips which would have been OK if it wasn't served with minted mushy peas which doesn't go with fish or chips, and I hadn't had to ask for the tartare sauce that menu said was included. The tartare sauce tasted wrong, which is perhaps why it wasn't included originally. The minted peas was just laziness, as other members of our party ordered dishes that came with this, and the kitchen obviously though is was easier to give me that too (although it wasn't busy).

There were issues with most peoples meals at my table, but I am just basing this on my own experience.

“Lovely Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with my family. Lovely friendly young waiters. Meat was plentiful and the biggest Yorkshire pudding ever! My daughter in law had only one small complaint and that was the turkey should come with stuffing. My son and I had steak pie which was delicious and meat was succulent. The white horse has always been known for its steak pie and this was up to standard. The only request I would have is that the pie isn't served in a dish, we and someone on another table struggled with the hot dish to put the pie on the plate with the chips and peas as very difficult to eat from the dish. Other than this a lovely lunch and will be returning.

“Was recommended and lived up to and surpassed expectations.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Highly recommend this pub and it's food. A warm welcome, excellent food, well presented. Well kept cask ales and a good selection of wine. It was our first visit but won't be our last.
