The hotel is a good one, clean and quiet and comfortable. The rooms are in a separate block so there is no noise from the pub. The restaurant was a bit of a let-down, not as good as I expected it to be having read some of the euphoric comments from previous diners. The food was good but not great... More

Dodging between the sun and showers, we returned to the White Horse for the first time after a couple of years, eager to see if the new owners had made any changes. The verdict? Good and bad. Firstly the accommodation - as good as ever, with bright clean ground-floor room well fitted and with door opening on to a sunny... More

Normally when booking a place connected with a pub, you expect 18th century accommodations, but this place is far from that. Everything was clean and new and working quite well. I was supper impressed! I would stay here again and again. The food was something that you would expect from a 4 or 5 star accommodation. Not overly priced and... More

Dave and Eva made my stay here at the White Horse a unforgettable one. They were so kind and helpful when I needed it. Always ensuring my stay was pleasant and consistently asking if there was anything they could help improve my stay. The staff was ever so friendly and the food was life changing. Nothing I could think of... More

Charming older country pub with very modern and large accommodations backing onto a lawn and field with geese and pigs. Recently taken over by the young owners who are doing everything right, should get even better. Don't miss an evening meal at the restaurant even if you don't stay here, the owner-chef created a perfect menu. But for one night... More

Dined at the White Horse for the first time and had a very mixed experience. The venue and location are great and overall the food is very good. However, only one vegetarian main course was offered and that was risotto - uninspired and predictable. I ended up having two starters and then one ingredient from one of them was missing.... More

I took my parents to the White Horse last week as a treat. Eva and David were kind, attentive and un-pushy. My room was very quiet with a view onto a field with a couple of little grey pigs and a flock of geese - far enough to be inaudible but close enough to watch. It was clean, the bath... More

Nice location good views good beer nice breakfast. Shame about the very small shower room and the uncomfortable matress. Would recommend this as the new owners have only recently taken over. Some room renovations would be nice.
