“Great Stay”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were attending a family wedding and our elderly Mothers and Aunt stayed here. They all commented on the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms and as we joined them for an evening drink and for breakfast we can add our appreciation of the excellent service and quality of the food. We didn't need to worry about the ambience of the place, we created our own!!! We all laughed a lot in what can only be described as warm and relaxed setting that added to our overall experience for a special weekend. Thanks Tim, you were a star.

Room Tip: There's only two, we used them both - both equally good. Excellent to have independent access.

We went to this restaurant using a Groupon voucher and the food was brilliant. We had the breaded brie and the pate to start, both good size portions, well cooked, very pleased. Then we had the salmon ravioli and steak, again both delicious and no scrimping on size. However, whilst we were having our food the service was not wonderful. The staff appeared a little unsure about who was serving which table, meaning that drinks orders (and sometimes food, on other tables I noticed) went forgotten on more than one occasion. After we had finished eating, we were left for 20minutes after having our plates cleared, with empty glasses, before someone came over to check on us. So all in all, nice place, good decor, friendly (mostly) atmosphere, great food, but the service was not up to par.

Thank you for your comments. I am really pleased that you enjoyed all your food. Unfortunately on this visit we were exceptionally busy and therefore the service did suffer slightly. We are recruiting additional staff as we are getting busier and busier all the time.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Had the two course dinner on offer here on a Groupon voucher and can only say they were giving it away! The starter was Whitebait with an attractive salad & dip - delicious and very generous portion - hardly needed the main course! I had the steak & usual accompaniments which was well cooked to perfection and quite tender (though I find all steak these days lacks flavour) -When I told the waitress I liked the juices the steak is cooked in, I was delighted to find when she brought the meal there was a little pot of meatjuices on the tray - fantastic service! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his burger meal too, very tasty meat. The meal finished with two liqueur coffees and mints. Even at the full price, this meal would have been good value.
The White Horse Inn also has lots of personality and friendly service. Some background music would have been a welcome addition though but maybe we were a bit early in the evening.

This pub has 2 rooms in an annex adjacent to the pub. We stayed one night in the Willow room, which was clean and well appointed. I assume the other room was similar. In the evening we ate in the restaurant. Our stay was on a Saturday and our initial concern when we went in the fairly large restaurant was that there were only two other tables taken. A party of ten came in later but that was it, so lacked some atmosphere. I would describe the menu as 'good pub grub. Full english breakfast included in the price. No problem with the service from the time we arrived 'till the time we left.
Would certainly stay here again.

Thank you for your comments. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay here at the pub and would welcome you again in the future. As you said that Saturday we were a little empty however, despite this I am pleased that you enjoyed your evening.

Many thanks,

We enjoyed an evening meal at the White Horse and found the staff extremely courteous and helpful. The menu, although not so extensive, offered good, home-cooked food and the prices were reasonable compared to others in pubs in the Cambridge area. There was also a beer festival at the time we were there offering a range of different kinds of English beer.

Found this online but alas the web pages always looks better. Stayed on night in May, nice quiet location and close to Cambridge but definitely not a 3 star maybe a 2 1/2 star. Room not very clean and pub in need of a little TLC. Owner was pleasant though & tried his best.
