Poor customer service
Oct 2020
I have been here multiple times, and have always had good experiences, during COVID, there customer service has been atrocious. We were served drinks at 9:30, (knowing closing was 10:00) and from 9:40 - 9:50 were asked to drink up twice, and to leave twice. We attempted to explain that our friend was in the toilet and we were just waiting for her to come back, but the tone remained hostile. We won't be back.

Not worth the visit. Staff are incredibly hostile.
Oct 2020 • Couples
Popped in in the afternoon. It was quiet, barely anybody inside or outside. Which you think would mean the staff would be able to focus on what few customers they had. We were practically ignored. Even having to shout for the managers attention. (Who by the way was so miserable, it begs the question of why you would work in customer service if you hate associating with the public?) Myself and my partner watched as he treated other groups with the same level of hostility. And we also watched as they finished their drinks, eagerly looking around for any member of staffs attention. Before giving up and leaving. Quite a shame really, in the current climate you’d imagine the hospitality industry would be grateful for any and every customer. Sadly not the case in this establishment. Will not be back unless The White Horse employs people who actually want to be there.

Lovely outdoor seating!
Jul 2020
We really like this pub for drinks and food and will definitely be returning again and again! It's very comfortable inside and has a lovely seating area outside too which we love. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Sunday lunch
Dec 2019 • Couples
My husband and I booked my birthday Sunday lunch here 15/12/19, we had booked in advance and on arrival the young man behind the bar was very pleasant and helpful , showed us to our table brought our drinks over, then we ordered roast beef Sunday lunch!! When it arrived which was very quickly we couldn’t believe the size and f the meal it was far bigger than we expected!! There were five different veg , roast potatoes, a huge Yorkshire pudding all in all a lovely Sunday lunch the parsnips were to die for and plenty of them the beef was so tender and juicy, With a red wine gravy, we must say it was one of the nicest Sunday lunches we’ve had . We would highly recommend the food and venue and must congratulate the chef along with the polite and helpful front of house staff . Mr & Mrs Reilly

Mixed feelings
Oct 2018 • Couples
Strange one this as we had mixed opinions of this due to the staff.
My dad and my wife went to bar to order food and drinks but had a rude and undertrained young man who was according to my dad very inexperienced and could not answer basic questions when asked about the drinks on sale but on the other side me and my mum were looked after by an excellent barman ( maybe the manager). We ordered food and even though we had starters, sides and light bites due to an hefty lunch the waitress was excellent and the food even better. We were sat in the “snug” and were look after well by the manager even though we were alone but the the young lad at the bar would really lose this place business due to his attitude and unhelpfulness.
The food alone would have us going back but next time I would go to the bar.

Pathetic effort from staff
Aug 2017 • Couples
Nobody minds kids in pubs in fact it has probably helped with the swearing etc. However, today we had two children literally running up and down the pub. A small child and an elder one encouraging the smaller one. I've been in customer service and you watch people and faces. Everyone else was getting annoyed except the Dad. When asked the staff if it was acceptable. Then eventually spoke with Dad. Oh whole pub much happier. Been coming here years but it seems it is slowly relying on the student crowd, weathly JLR Leamington people. Check the crowd in the pub and staff before stopping

Hi Rob, I am sorry that you found the children annoying. However, once you voiced your opinion, the father was immediately asked to tell his children to stop, which he and they did. I may add that not everyone shared your view however as another customer approached me after you departed and spoke out against you and in particular the manner in which you voiced your opinion. Many thanks, Darren

Nice Pub
Jul 2017 • Family
Visited The White Horse whilst staying in nearby Warwick as a base for the British F1 at Silverstone. The pub interior is very nice, with a good outside space to the side. Myself and my son had the burgers which look very nice but the burger was very dry. Overall a nice pub serving average food.

Hi, I'm glad that you like the pub, but am sorry to hear that your burger was on the dry side. We serve a great many burgers and it is unusual to have this feedback. I'm confident that had you mentioned it, the staff would have been happy to replace or offer an alternative. Hope to see you when you next visit the area!

Birthday meal for my Mum
Jul 2017 • Couples
Had a lovely meal at The White Horse. Great service and food although it would be nice to see a few more choices on the menu.
We come here for drinks and/or food quite often and apart from one occasion when the music was really noisy, we always have a great experience.

Thank you Alison. We are now changing our menu monthly, in order to try and keep it more seasonal and varied for our guests, this does however mean it is a slightly smaller menu than we've had in the past. We also always have the music in the snug area set to a lower level, so that there is always a quieter part of the pub- but please let us k ow if you think the music is too loud. Take care.

Great meal

We had a lovely meal, but there did seem to be less choices on the new menu . Also more desserts would be most welcome.
