A lovely evening spent in the restaurant garden, complete with fire pit to keep the cold away! Upon arrival I double checked my online booking and was asked if I would like to dine inside or out. As it was a pleasant evening, we chose outside. Having selected our drinks from the traditional-themed bar(a memory of Cornwall in Sharp's Wolf... More

This is one of those places you might not pick immediately but it has really been a delightful surprise. The staff is amazingly informal, but punctual and friendly. I choose a healthy 'Super salad' as a starter and a steak as main dish. The salad was a pleasant surprise with a nice light, but tasteful dressing. The steak was well... More

Popped in this evening for a quick dinner, sat in the snug (order at the bar) assuming that it would be quite quick and waited 40 minutes for the single course ordered. Now 40 minutes doesn't seem so long if you are on a train to Gatwick or driving to Heathrow but it feels like an age to wait for... More

Eat in upstairs private dining room for boss’s retirement meal. Bar staff gave excellent wine advice and allowed tasting before choosing – ended up buying the more expensive wine so very astute of them to offer tasting. Duck salad was outstanding – wish I’d had main size portion instead of starter portion. Good service – only awkward moment when they... More

Came here with family yesterday for lunch and we're pleased that we could bring the dog. The outdoor seating area looked lovely and we were looking forward to sitting outside in the sunshine. 2 out of the 5 meals we ordered were not available. There were no olives to start with and it took a while for our order to... More

The White Horse has always looked attractive and enticing from the outside, especially after a long and trying journey from the north. Over the years in all of its incarnations we have popped in with high expectations but have rarely seen them fulfilled. On one occasion we returned for an evening meal with some locals but again it disappointed. And... More
