We were staying at the Best Western White Horse Hotel, and we ate downstairs at the 68 Clooney Restaurant. It seemed like a nice restaurant, possibly a wee bit fancier than we were thinking. We shared the Grilled Halloumi and the Trio of Goats Cheese.

Was spending a night here and decided to eat in the restaurant after looking at the menu. The staff were excellent and very attentive and friendly. The service was quick and I must admit the menu choice was good. The three of us all enjoyed our meals - especially the belly pork with black pudding. Prices were good considering this... More

Good enough value for 15.95 but lots of better places to have Sunday Lunch. I hate... More

What a disappointing experience, heard a rumour the restaurant had improved so decided to give it a try. It hasn't. Waiting staff were dismissive, uninterested and down right bored looking. Menus looked like they were very old, with very limited choice. Food itself felt like it had been heated up in a microwave, along with gross misrepresentation of two sad... More

Thank you to the staff and management of the White Horse for a wonderful family celebration of our Mum's 60th birthday. We couldn't have had nicer treatment and our food was fabulous, particularly the sirloin steaks and the crispy lamb. A special mention to the chef for delightful amuse bouches! The restaurant staff were extremely attentive during a busy weekend... More

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!!
