Visited for Sunday lunch, 6 of us in total. Having read all the very good reviews I was looking forward to our visit. Being vegetarian I am used to having limited options, and as a mushroom hater I know my options are further limited, but pasta? For Sunday lunch? Really? As it was the only option (as they were unable... More

Had a great meal here with two friends. Great service and fantastic food. Had a steak which was cooked to perfection which is a rarity these days! We will be visiting again very soon.

My husband and I met with old friends at the White Horse last week and were pleasantly surprised that we found such amazing food at such a small out of the way place. I was quite frankly expecting just your ordinary pub food but instead were treated to one of the most delicious meals I've had in years. Fine dining... More

Been here on numerous occasions and never been disappointed, our personal favourite is the Belly pork with a Chilli & garlic dressing, absolute beauty of a dish. Good selection of Lagers & Real ales as well as a nice Gin Selection. Staff always attentive and friendly, nice open fires in the restaurants to give it the proper "country" feel with... More

Went walking with some friends and booked for a late lunch last Saturday. When I booked I explained we'd have dogs to check if ok. We were told that we could have the snug in that case and it couldn't have been more perfect! Lovely little private room with roaring fire lit so welcoming after our cold walk on hills.... More

This was a return visit to the White Horse after a very successful first visit back in November. Didn't think it could get better, but it was. The meal was one of the best I have had in a long time.... Complimented by the excellent service from friendly and attentive staff. The shoulder of lamb is to die for.... And... More

The food, the environment and staff...exceptional. My son dines at the white horse regularly and he has raved about their meals and speaks highly of the staff and proprietors whom are always friendly. So we spent Christmas Day here and the food was seasonal, innovative, well cooked and imaginatively presented.i myself worked within the catering industry for many years which... More

I cannot praise this pub too highly. Friendly, well run and with great food. My only criticism, and I am almost reluctant to mention it considering how excellent every thing else is, but we were put off by the over-loud and all pervasive piped music. A small but significant black mark in what is otherwise a faultless set up. Is... More

The White Horse Restaurant is located in the hamlet of Hendrerwydd near Ruthin within the Vale of Clwyd, North Wales

Surrounded by stunning scenery and overlooking the Clwydian hills, it's a place to leave the busy world behind and come and enjoy good food and a wide selection of beverages. With two roaring fires to cosy up too during the colder winter months and alfresco dinning on the decked area to enjoy the stunning scenery by candle light during the warmer summer months.

Our 2014 menu offers a thoughtful take on British dining using a wide selection of seasonal and Welsh ingredients.

We always keep two well looked after real ales, always one from microbreweries as close as possible to the White Horse.
