“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Lovely pub with great, kind and welcoming staff. The beer was great (particularly the guest ale) and so too was the food. Good value as well. I'll be back!

Well what can i say? The review that says about the greasy food must of been about another pub. We went to the white horse for sunday lunch with my five children. There were activity packs for the children and the free drinks with the childrens meals were very helpfull. The staff and landlord were great and couldn't of been more helpful. The food was great and size of the meals were very good. To sum up on our visit great food . Happy and helpful staff. Great value for money. Well worth a visit.

My self and my girlfriend stayed at the White horse inn for two nights. When we arrived we were welcomed by the staff And shown to our room which was clean and comforting . We didn't have a meal at the White horse on our first night as we had made other arrangments, the next morning we were greeted by the landlord at breakfast who gave us advice about activities in and around the Cambridge area . We decided to eat at the White horse that night as we were departing early next morning the food was piping hot and as decribed on the menu and reasonable value. We would recommend the White horse inn anyone and we will back again next year.

We live quite locally and enjoy getting away from the touristy side of Cambridge, so a trip out to Wimpole for a walk and then a Sunday lunch on the way home is welcome.
However, give this one a miss. A changed management meant it has altered dramatically. Sub standard cleanliness and quality of food, indifferent service, indifferent attitude, mis-matched furnishings, this place has gone downhill quickly. Such a shame. A few years ago it was definitely on the up.

Tim D, Owner at White Horse Inn, responded to this review, September 26, 2012
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your experience here at The White Horse. I am particularly disappointed that you feel that the pub was not of sufficient cleanliness as we strive to ensure that we offer the best possible environment as refelected by in our award of 5 stars in the national Scores on the doors programme for hygiene and cleanliness.

I would like to explain that since taking over this establishment I have not strived to make the pub a 'gastro' style rather prefering a rustic, traditional public house with a twist.

I hope you choose to reconsider us in the future to see if the changes we have implemented since your visit early on in our tenure meet more of your expectations.

Kind regards,

Tim

If you are planning a visit to Cambridge then the place to stay is 'The White Horse Inn' at Barton near Cambridge. The inn is spotlessly clean and the staff are so welcoming. There are two rooms in an adjacent annexe, both twin rooms with tea & coffee making facilities, TV, en-suite bath/shower, wash basin and wc. The rooms are maintained to a very good standard and the beds comfortable. Inside the Inn there is a large dining room, part open plan (in the extension) and part in sections (not quite alcoves) in the original building. The food is very good and the quantities excellent. The inn's management changed in May 2010 and the new landlord is stamping his influence on it.
The White Horse is in a good position to be able drive to the 'Park and Ride' bus station to get into the city. This avoids the problem of finding parking in Cambridge!
