We have been to the White Horse several times and it is always excellent in every way - food, drinks, service and ambience are all superb.

My Wife and I visited my Mum and her partner for her Birthday, the table was booked by my Mum in advance and overall we were very pleased with the place. The venue is a charming 16th century building that has a long bar, large restaurant area, a beautiful garden at the back (quite hidden but we found it) and... More

This is a very nice pub that offers good food at a a reasonable price. The only thing in my opinion is the lack of detail and service you receive. It is a real shmae as sevice is a key part of the overall expereince and stops us from going back when we only live 5 minutes away. Waited 15... More

Sorry we upset you, I am afraid that i do not consider 15 minutes a great deal of time to clear plates. I am not sure which day you came but if it was the 5th August when you posted your comments it was a busy night and sometimes the kitchen determines when plates are cleared and when meals are...

Welcoming pub at the end of our walk in the area and very handy as we were staying nearby and were in walking distance. The pub is dog friendly in the bar area and has two seating areas, one in the garden and one just outside which I suspect is probably the smoking area. Well, I have never seen such... More

The venue itself was ok. The staff are friendly and polite. The food however is in my opinion overpriced and sub standard. My wife and I both had fruit salad and clotted cream for dessert. They used tinned fruit and drowned it with the juice.

Thank Mark A
whitehorseampfield, Owner at White Horse, responded to this review

This is truly an asinine comment. The fruit salad was actually made for the wonderful Golden wedding that is mentioned in the previous review, but the chefs made too much and we sold it the next day on our specials board. Does this gentleman truly believe that as we make all the food we sell, that we would buy tinned... More

We had Sunday lunch here and the food was very good, although it could have been a bit hotter. The desserts were excellent and there were some different choices to the usual run-of-the-mill. However, as soon as we sat down, we noticed slug trails all over the carpet! The carpet also looked as if it had not been vacuumed that... More

Parts of the ancient building of the White Horse date back to the 16th century, and the two large Inglenook open fires bear testament to their heritage with their smoking chambers and their priest hole. These fires which are always alight during the winter months throw their heat into the various bar areas.The locals bar, with its dart board, and cosy village atmosphere retains the typical English pub image. Roaring log fire, the slap of cards on the table during a crib match and the thump of darts in the board, echo quietly in this bar. No background music can be heard, just the agitated discussions of the village elders who frequent this oasis of good beer & conversation.The lounge bar, with its equally large Inglenook can accommodate up to 40 people sitting and many more standing. Used by many people as a dining area, it still retains its “Olde World Charm”. A comfortable Chesterfield and deep farmhouse chairs merely add to the pleasant ambience of this lovely area.The restaurant has been built in a new area that extends towards the lovely pub garden. Seating 90 customers it makes a perfect place to enjoy the excellent food that is always available.
