Visited for Christmas Eve lunch. Very good value for money compared with similar establishments, and the service was pretty good given how busy it was and the number of large parties who were dining. Will go again on a normal day to see how it...More

We keep returning to the white horse for various reasons. For us the biggest draws are the delicious steaks, the creme brule, the very friendly staff and the atmosphere. The white horse is also a great place for breakfast, with lovely menu choices.

We visit this pub regularly for breakfast or dinner. Well behaved dogs and children are welcome. Although the food is always excellent it is not a pretentious place. The staff are extremely friendly and there is a great relaxed atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Appealing menu and the scallops were great; perfectly cooked with a good hit of chilli in the potatoes served alongside. Then, big mistake; I had the sumac roasted cauliflower with warm chickpea taboulleh with tahini dressing. Full marks for description, although I am not a...More
