Near perfect Sunday lunch for two, best lamb I've had for a very long time. Staff are friendly, courteous and efficient and the ambience is spot on. Have been before and will return - best restaurant in Balsall Common.

There is always an offer worth having at this superb public house with great food! The homemade pies are great, just the right size with a choice of mash or chips and peas! The lasagne was piping hot and served with salad! Service was friendly and efficient! Well worth a visit!

Stayed 5 minutes away from here with work colleagues on a business trip, and we ended up eating here 3 out of 5 evenings! The first night we went was steak night - 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £35 and it was delicious! The second time I had the lasagne, but have to say I was a... More

Service was great - food was well presented and good value and the ambiance was ok. We were unfortunately parked near a noisy table but, hey, it was ok. At this level competition is fierce especially when the house is outside of town but the team did us proud - we'll be back

The White Horse offers a warm welcome whether you are just dropping by for a drink in the bar or having lunch or dinner in the restaurant. Warm colours, solid woods, sympathetic lighting and friendly faces combine to make the perfect dining & drinking venue. Our food focus is on fresh homemade traditional dishes, some of which are given a modern twist and, wherever possible, sourced from local suppliers. Food is served throughout the day, including sandwiches and light plates and on Sundays we offer roasts all day. A great range of chilled lagers and real cask ales are on offer together with old and new world wines and Champagnes. With private dining, gardens and decking, The White Horse is the natural choice.
