We went here for a birthday meal a few days ago and were a little underwhelmed. I had chicken wrapped in bacon, our daughter the 'steak' burger (standard burger made with steak mince), and my wife had the rib eye steak. My meal was OK, the burger was lovely apparently, but the steak was very poorly cooked. A medium/well came cold and very rare. Maybe it's a local thing, but we had about 6 chips each. And that's no exaggeration. The place is spotless and very friendly, but on this occasion it left us wanting.

Recently enjoyed an evening of fine food and an abridged version of Oliver. Previously we had been on a similar night, where they included a performance of My Fair Lady. We really enjoyed that occasion, although we remember feeling like beached whales when we got home as we had eaten so much! With this in mind we were worried we might be feeling the same this time round...

This special night (as did the previous My Fair Lady Night) had a set menu, just short of £30 per person for three courses and tea/coffee. I opted for the mushroom and tarragon pate, the pork belly on mustard mash with cider sauce and vegetables and for pudding the chocolate torte.

The starter was light and fresh, on a bed of salad leaves. The pork belly was succulent, with a nice piece of crackle and the mustard mash had a nice gentle warmth from the whole grain mustard. Brilliantly cooked. The veggies were cooked to perfection and the sauce helped bring it all together. The chocolate torte was delicious, a nice rich bitter-sweet taste and the pastry was well made.

All three courses were eaten without discomfort this time round... the portion sizes were greatly improved, the food more refined and therefore more enjoyable.

All washed down with a couple of glasses of nicely chilled, crisp Pinot Grigeo. What was a nice addition were the chocolate truffles that were included with the coffee.

The atmosphere was buzzing in the restaurant, and seemed fully booked. The performance, which included an appearance of the Landord, Simon, as Fagin, was really well put together by all those involved. At the end of the performance Simon thanked all those who came, with a horrifying number of pubs closing every year, he showed his appreciation for everyone's support.

Throughout the night the service was prompt, organised and always with a smile.

I hugely recommend the White Horse, and urge you to give it a go for a meal. The beer is also fantastically well kept. They quite often have special evenings similar to this, and it makes a meal out a bit different.

Finally, I urge everyone to support their local pub(s).

We were recommended to dine here by Sally Leigh of the Little Willows B&B just up the road. It was a lovely pub. The staff and owner really knew how to look after you and the food was deliscious. The atmosphere was humming and evreyone seemed happy. A great find.
