Let's keep this simple: beautiful, genuine service; quaint, ye olde English decor and styling; succinct and inexpensive menu; but most importantly - amazing pub grub. I had the privilege of meeting the chef personally which is typically unheard of, making the dining experience even more enjoyable. I ordered the New Yorker steak rare and the attached photo does it absolutely... More

Menu with only tapas and appetizers like burguers and fries. I thought it could be more complex since it is in a hotel.

I was staying at the hotel next door and thought I pop in for a quick dinner. Sat down at the bar and after a few minutes started a one of the best conversations with some of the locals. Along with the friendly barman (apologies forget your name), we solved the worlds problems. Friendly and charming they were. What a... More

We are staying at the hotel attached to the White Horse so we thought we would stop in. We must have been there 15 minutes before we even saw the bartender. We were sitting at a table but had to get up to order and walk to the bar to order our drinks and then again to pick them up.... More

Stumbled upon this little gem. Awesome bar and pub feel. Food was a life saver after walking around all day. Not a huge place but very inviting.

Thank ajt555
