Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

If you like a small bits of luxury, I would look somewhere else. Stay there over two days and I needed breakfast before 9am and they didn't open until after 9 for breakfast and didn't even suggests anywhere else. The food wall really nice (pub grub).

Stopped for lunch,food was delicious and I will be back. This is a perfect place to call in to. Victoria was the name of our host and she was very pleasant. Food was delicious and homemade. I love when you get real homemade vegetable soup with real homemade brown bread. The lasagne was very good. Atmosphere was nice to, lovely stove fired up on a cold day.

Had the pleasure of stopping here yesterday on a trip back from Clare. What a little gem nestled in beside Roscrea Castle. Miserbale day outside and we were invited in by one of the bar men who offered us a number of tables beside their cosy open fires. We stopped for some snack food - soups and chicken goujons , cappuccinos and a sneaky Guinness. Quick friendly service in what I would describe as one of the few real Irish traditional pubs that are friendly and open to new comers and tourists alike.

Not to sure what other posters are talking about. I'm not sure if they were expecting to be in the actual whitehouse. Sure its not the cleanest place in the world but this is traditional pub. The wood burning smell, cosyness, friendly staff, nice Guinness and nice simple food - give me this anyday!

Definitly worth a stop in any time of the year after a visit to the Castle or passing through the town.

Visited this disgusting place on way to Dublin recently and was shocked at this place why it is open is way beyond me--- please call in the health inspectors and close it down immediately.
Super macs way beyond this place as all we got was poor fast food.... 4 main courses at 44.00 euros for frozen food deep fired rubbish... and on the way out nearly got sick to see snail trails all over the carpet totally visable ... o so disgusting--- never been so appaled in my life...... Toilets not great either no loo paper......

Room Tip: Please by pass Roscrea, what a terrible run down down...................

We came in off the motorway just have a bite to eat in Roscrea and decided to try the white house. We were told to sit down at uncleanned tables. The bar was covered with empty glasses and there was only one person behind the bar who continuously ignored us. Another member of staff was eating down the back and was not willing to help out. Finally one of the patrons was asleep at the bar, no doubt drunk at 5pm . When we stood up to leave the bar lady said 'thanks for coming anyway ' - horrible place.

Stayed at the White House in a group of 26 people and have been meaning to write a review. Had a very good experience, lovely meal, great Irish pub, and very comfy. Enjoyed a local regular's amusing history of the castle, and had a very nice breakfast before departing. Must call again.
