“Fantastic B&B!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

My wife and I recently stayed at the White Horse and were so impressed with the overall service. the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our evening meal in the restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. The room was very clean and homely, with all the amenities that you could need. In the morning, the breakfast really was excellent and we really couldn't find fault with any aspect of our stay. We will definitely use this place again when staying in the area in future.

I booked this B&B solely using the Internet and am pleased to say that it exceeded both my wife and my own expectations. We arrived after a hard Friday night drive in pouring rain and received a really warm welcome from the landlady and bar staff. I was advised upon phoning to book for dinner in advance and was so glad we did. The food and service was excellent! We both had rack of lamb and two puddings along with a great Argentinian bottle of Merlot and sundries which we both thought to be fantastic, all for £85 !
The accommodation was also superb. Very clean and well appointed with really nice toiletries and well thought out little touches around the room (like Kettle chips) etc to make you feel really at home.
Breakfast was equitable to the Ritz London or perhaps surpassed it! Beautiful ingredients cooked and served superbly. Really great end to our visit. We will return. Excellent.

Room Tip: Room 9 was great, as I am sure we're the others! We has a balcony with a view over the paddock w...

Once again Tara and Danny have surpassed themselves with a wonderful service. If anything they've both made the White Horse even more inviting than my last visit there and nothing was too much trouble for them or any of the staff. A long drive from the deep south west was met with a warm reception, a beer or two, a coincidental meeting of old friends, and a table in the resturant. The quality of the food once again was very very good. My room was very comfortable with a particularly good shower and a tranquil view of Compton Bassett to boot. The breakfast service in the morning couldn't have been better and I particularly liked the copious amounts of fresh coffee on the go. Not suprisingly the White Horse is very popular locally for all the right reasons. I don't know what else to say other than a very big thank you to Tara and Danny for what is my favourite Bed and Breakfast venue. You'd be pushed finding anywhere nicer in my opinion and I'll find any excuse to come again.

Room Tip: Book early, really.

Living a long way away from Wiltshire, we always need somewhere comfortable with good food to stay on our regular trips to the county - and The White Horse never disappoints. The welcome is always warm, the food and beer is excellent, the rooms are very comfortable and we never want to leave. Tara and her staff are always more than happy to help and are always eager to please - even making pancakes specially for breakfast our pancake mad daughter! I really can't recommend The White Horse enough, our next stay there is in October and we are looking forward to it already, especially the fab bacon sandwiches at breakfast time!

Sorry, but just not good enough. Waitress forgot us and we had to ask for the menu, then again to be served. Recommended soup was bland. Wouldn't bother again I'm afraid. The venue is lovely looking, warm and friendly. And of course, the setting is beautiful.

My partner and I, stayed here using the bed and breakfast facilities over 3 years ago. It was such an exceptional stay, awesome food, very good company. I decided to revisit just for a sunday lunch and a few beers. The sparkle and atmosphere of the pub is still there. A smiling and energetic land lady greeted us and nothing was a problem for her. The sunday roast was the best ever, nearly on par with my grans. The staff was polite and very warming. It was another wonderful experience and beautiful memories. We will defiantly be back. Good luck for the future and many many thanks
