Good choice of classic dishes. Large portions, so main meal was all our party could eat. Lovely stylish surroundings & a great outdoor seating area too.

Had a fabulous afternoon tea with excellent service in beautiful surroundings. The cakes were the highlight particularly the lemon drizzle and the tiffin. Four types of sandwiches, fruit scones with proper clotted cream, a mini cheesecake and 6 varieties of cake. There was also a choice of tea and we were served lots of it. The service was perfect. We... More

Came here one evening for dinner with friends whilst working in the area. What can I say.......the food was brilliant, the service was brilliant, they had great real ales on tap and it was well priced. I had the burger, it tasted great, it was well presented, and I would highly recommend it.

Last night was also my first visit to the restaurant. The overall ambience of the building and surroundings were perfect but unfortunately the chosen meal was not. I and my mother ordered pie with chips and my guest indulged in a very tasty fish dish. Wish that I had ordered the same. My steak and mushroom pie was awful. The... More

Really sorry that your experience at The White Mare was not a great one! On this occasion I have to agree with you wholeheartedly. The steak pie to which you are referring was not our usual offering. The kitchen staff, having been inundated by customers, were persuaded by a visiting food rep to try out this product, however we very... More

This is a write-up about two separate visits to The White Mare. The establishment is under new management and has won a highly regarded award and features a fully renovated interior. I’ll start with the good (great!) experience… Occasionally a specially themed evening is laid on, this one was a Beer, Cider and Food evening where a guest from the... More

Popped in for dinner, was told to grab a seat and that they would bring menus to us. Very friendly staff, all willing to help. A decent sized Gin collection which showed an array of local and regional gin (would have been lovely to see a few American gins too). Menu for gin was also on table so I didn't... More

Hi really glad you enjoyed your visit and managed to sample some of our gin collection. We do rotate our gins around as our bar is quite small and we are always looking for something new. I am now on a mission to source some American gin! Sorry that you didn't get waiter service on your drinks order - will... More
