“Nice venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Visited this place today with my wife as she used to drive past years ago and thought it would be good to check out.

A very nice, well laid out establishment, quite large but plenty of small tables to sit at. Staff very efficient and friendly and the food we ordered was very good.. (Burger & Fish & Chips). We had to wait about 20 mins for the food to arrive, but this was indicative of it being freshly prepared and not from Chef 'Mike' (Microwave).

A real downpour while we were there which resulted in diners at the far end of the restaurant having to relocate as rainwater came through and flooded the carpets at that end. Having said that the staff dealt with the situation, quietly and efficiently.

All in all very pleasant and would return.

“The Plaice To Be...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Well, actually, it's Haddock - fresh daily, succulent, light and beautifully cooked. Can't beat it and such friendly staff too. A delight.

“Very comfortable and friendly place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Stayed here for 1 night, room was made available to me for early check in. Without exception, all staff made me feel very welcome, really friendly. It was a nice place to stay. The room was spacious, very modern with all the facilities you'd expect. I liked the fact fresh milk was delivered to my doorstep for breakfast tea/coffee. We ate in the hotel in the evening, service very slow but food was tasty! The breakfast was perfect, lots of choice! I would recommend this for couples and friends and family - great setting in the restaurant. Above all though, it was the staff that made the difference at The White Horse! Thank you for a lovely stay!
