This is the second time we've been here, this time, for a Sunday lunch. I recall leaving last time with the vague feeling that the meal was quite expensive for what we've had, and to be honest, I left again, feeling the same. There is nothing wrong with the pub, it has a nice "local" feel, friendly staff, good service,... More

The pub itself is lovely and friendly. The interior is nice and the staff were helpful. However the beer was not at its best and the food was a disappointment. I tried the burger which had added chorizo which was not mentioned on the menu and overpowered the other potential flavours. And a pizza - feta, rocket and cherry tomatoes,... More

Been going back to the White Horse for the last five years yesterday evening both food and service excellent - staff are always really helpful - have to say I don't recognise the White Horse from some of the recent comments - so I would thoroughly recommend

Surroundings are nice and lovely garden but very disappointing food. Chips cold and soggy and fish of poor quality. Steak and pepper pie turned out to be chicken and mushroom. They did the right thing with the bill but we won't be rushing back.

After really looking forward to another good meal at this well located village pub, we were very disappointed on our third visit by cold food and a general disinterest by the staff. Third and last visit!

There's always one, isn't there. Maybe it's me? Perhaps I'm in the wrong. As a paying customer I have had years of great fun and lovely service but you do have a member of staff with a rather high handed attitude (May 2016). I won't let it spoil my enjoyment of your fine establishment but rotten apples can spoil the... More

Overpriced food, tiny portions but impossible to comment as staff are too busy and any comments left on their page are immediately removed. Also we were over charged so check you bill

£4.50 for ten slivers of hallonmi ! ! Think before you order We used to love this pub the food was always amazing and reasonably priced, but now it's over priced. Sad days

Small family gathering, steaks and pizzas, cooked well, changed toppings on pizza from menu, without issue from the staff, all good.
