Out celebrating a birthday and had a lovely meal at the White Mare this evening. Very friendly and attentive staff which are worthy of a special mention. Our party of three had the mussels, butternut squash/feta salad and scallops as a starter all three of which were delicious. We all had steaks as a main course which were good also.... More

The place is nice but I am afraid I can not say the same about the food. We ordered Cumberland sausage and chips, the sausage was tasteless and the texture was like hard rubber, it was almost imposible to cut. The mushrooms were burned and the chips had a strong odor of bad cooking oil. It could have been a... More

Stopped here for lunch on Sunday. Roast Dinner was great. I had the pork, and perfect. The reason for taking time to review is to say how impressed I was at the options for gluten free. I could have had all but 1 or 2 of the dishes on the full menu as a gluten free option if I had... More

I can understand why it has won best pub in Cumbia ..... happy staff, fabulous food and good beer Very helpful and accommodating a few tweaks to things on the menu and virtually every meal could be provided gluten free. Well worth a detour for lunch

My lunch partner had the chicken with Waberthwaite sausage which was also very tasty. Will certainly be returning even though it is quite a drive for us, it is well... More

Went there for Sunday lunch late on and it was really quiet, both had roast beef and that was good,asked for some extra gravy, that never came then asked for the sweet menu and waited 15 mins and still no one took our order so never bothered with a sweet, lovely place but won't b going back there.

A dozen of us were celebrating a special birthday here and were given a really pleasant room for our delicious, home-cooked buffet.(The chicken was quite spicey but most of us liked it). The staff got it just right; helpful and courteous, they let us get on with enjoying ourselves whilst regularly checking that we had everything we needed. Perfect!

Thank susan s
