“Warning : Avoid this restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Tomato-soup was heated konserve divided in two soup cups
The meat was tough and not edible. It certainly was not a rump steak!
The chicken skewers and vegetables were totally burnt and swimming in fat.
Our complaint was rejected. We could only eat the chips and grilled tomato and for this it was by far to expensive.

Such retaurants seem to confirm the bad reputation of the english food.

Das Fleisch war hart und nicht eßbar. Es war sicher kein Rumpsteak!
Die Hühnerspieße und das Gemüse waren total verbrannt und schwammen im Fett.
Unsere Reklamation wurde abgelehnt. Wir konnten allein die Chips und die gegrillte Tomate essen und dafür war es extrem teuer! Solche Restaurants bestätigen den schlechten Ruf der englischen Küche.

“A dump ”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Hate this pub. Staff don't seem to give a dam unless you're one of the drunk locals asking for another JD and Coke.
Crap food, rubbish table service, long waits and a horrible atmosphere.
Avoid like the plague!!!!

“This still has not changed..... Avoid at all cost”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

I really wish this place would clean it's act up, as the only pub with food in Cranbrook, then menu looks OK! And looking in to the tables, modern and clean, but this still has a really rough crowd and most off-putting as I saw today, you have to squeeze past smokers who are in the doorway, nearly in the pub. Cranbrook needs a decent pub, this is not it, shame. We only left with The George Hotel.

“Up and down”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I live in the area and often enjoy a sandwich and a pint at lunch time. It is usualy good to acceptable but lately has fallen in to the sticky table poor service sort of place i try to avoid with the staff not seaming to want to serve customers. I took the family for lunch and i could have bounced the chicken i had off the table. When i mention it i was told airaly there was a new chef then the sever walked off???? leaving us wanting drinks and deserts to the point we did not order any and left. I would understand it if it were heaving but there were 3 tables dinning and 4 people at the bar

“What a joke the new managers are!!!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

I used to love the White Horse when back to Cranbrook to stay with family now the place is a joke. The mangers are rude and Unprofessional you would think when the so need customers they may treat the ones who are in there well but you would be mistaken!!!! Last time I went in order a gin and tonic I was served the drink with no ice nor lemon in a warm glass straight out of the glass washer. As for the food Disgusting
