“Food is actually OK, toilets are a disgrace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Food not bad, but certainly not up to the quality of several other establishments about a mile away. Toilets are a disgrace - I have been twice in the last month and there has been no soap in the gents both times, and the hand dryer does not work. Avoid quiz night (Tuesday).

“Don't have the Sunday lunch!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Called in here late afternoon last Sunday for something to eat but wish we hadn't bothered. i ordered a roast beef dinner ??? The meat was processed, the carrots were virtually non existent and the Yorkshire pud was crispy to say the least! My husband ordered the fish and chips which he has had on several occasions before and always enjoyed. Whilst it was edible, the fish was not up to the usual standard - maybe a change of suppliers? Come on White Horse and the Barras chain - sort this out!

“Excellent staff and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

After being treated by another eating establishment like a leper for having a small well behaved dog in tow, i stopped off at the White horse for lunch. Although they don't allow dogs inside, they couldn't have been more hospitable in attending to my needs sat outside with my dog in the sunshine. The staff were fantastic and very attentive. The food was fine, but the service was excellent and is the reason for my rating.
