“Good basic Food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good basic food and value for Money. Went there for lunch on a weekday very busy. I had the farmhouse grill which was fine, except for the bready sausages, my aunt had the the pensioners special which again was fine. Staff could be a bit friendlier.

“Fantastic family restaurant!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been dining here for years, always rapid, quality food. The fish and chips portions are excellent and the variety of home made dishes are always nice. Child friendly atmosphere and lovely staff.

“Great value and good choice”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a rare combination, - a small cafe but with lots of atmosphere and "buzz".
It is busy but efficient with a good choice of menu and great value for money (the dearest item on the menu was just over £5!)
The food is cooked to order then when your meal is ready it is shouted out against a numbered ticket.
The quality of the food is extremenly high (especially the fish and chips) considering the very modest pricing.
A visit to Sidmouth would not be complete without calling in at the White Horse Cafe for lunch.

“I love Morad”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Fish and chips at its finest, Local fish cooked to perfection, tasty large portions right across the varied menu, Busy year round, I regularly eat here and have never been in and found it not busy, the staff always welcoming and friendly. Great value for money. The coffee is the best in town.

“Good Chippy”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Went for lunch off the cuff as couldn't be bothered to go home to cook. Mum had the pensioners special - Haddock and chips, bread and butter and cup of tea. I had sausage, chips and mushy peas. Both wel cooked and generous portions. PLace was packed and atmosphere was good. Only slight drawback is tables are packed in. Also does take away, which was also busy.
