Great atmosphere, great food, great service and great value. Came with a family group of 13 in July and it couldn't have been better! Thank you. PS. I found my sunglasses at home but thank you for looking!

Picturesque little pub a few miles out of Sturminster Newton with its own craft brewery and a good range of well prepared and served food, in a comfy snug-type eating area.

Have been to the White Horse twice now. As all the other reviews state, a friendly welcome and great food awaits you. Our first visit was midweek. I had the Durban Beef Curry and my wife had the Beef Stroganoff Tagliatelle, both off the specials menu. Our daughter had the burger off the 'standard' menu. All of the meals were... More

This place is by far my favourite resturant in the area. The wine service and food is always of high quality and nothing is ever too much trouble. The steaks here are always cooked to perfection.

I found this pub quite by accident and me and my brother gave it a try for lunch. We were welcomed by two very friendly young ladies and I must say the food was really tasty and fantastic value.

My husband and I visited for lunch for the first time on Tuesday. We were very happy with the service we received. They let my husband try a taste of their 2 own beers so that he could decide which one to have. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented.

I was not embarrassed going to this pub on my own. Lovely friendly staff and delicious food and beer. Hinton St Mary is a super friendly village with the wonderful Pitt Rivers Manor House in the village, Beautiful church too. Well worth a walk around with a visit to the pub.

What a little gem this place is, wonderfully traditional English village pub, a rare thing today, and food to die for. We went on a Sunday and the menu was just the right length, and very reasonable priced British roast as it should be. Well trained pleasant girls serving the food and behind the bar. Will definitely go there again.... More
