I attended an evening reception at the white horse a couple of weeks ago. My boyfriend and I had been considering getting married there and we were waiting to see what the room looked like when it was laid out. It did look amazing and we had put the hotel on our maybe list. That was until my boyfriend ordered... More

Cant fault the food and our waiter Joy was exceptional but found 68 clooney was like a retirement home and the barman did not have the capacity to make a cocktail that was not on the small cocktail menu.

Superb from the start. Very attentive staff seated me quickly and were extremely polite. I didn't bother with a starter ordering the aforementioned steak but none the less I was presented with a complimentary cup of soup which was appreciated and tasty. When the steak arrived it was precisely as ordered and one of the best I have ever had.... More

Top marks for 68 Clooney! Their a la carte menu has a great variety and a very international twist. The prawns to start with, followed by an amazing steak were top quality and perfectly cooked and presented! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We'll be back!!

We started with the spicy prawns and deep fried Brie before ordering the chateaubriand for two, all were cooked perfectly with the main cut at the table by a member of staff who are all polite, friendly and helpful! Great dining experience that i'd highly recommend!
