“Nice welcome. Helpful staff. Good food.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Six of us called in for Sunday lunch. We were welcomed by the assumed Landlord and all very much enjoyed our lunch. The meat was tender and generous as were the vegetables., and I must say a good selection. Whilst Val took our original booking we didnt meet her but understood she was the chef for the day. All we can say is well done to you all and thank you for accommodating us. When next in the area we shall visit again. Good luck for the future as we were told you have only been there 8 months. We are sure it will all be good for you.

We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your lunches on Sunday . Val takes pride in cooking the Sunday roasts just as she would for our own family, sourcing the freshest of produce and buying meat from local butchers. Plus real meat gravy and home made yorkshire puddings add that special touch! Thank you for taking the time to post such a great review. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

It's great to know that you enjoyed our Posh Barbeque evening. I think the numbers were a little low due to there being so many annual events scheduled throughout July in the Bride Valley, I guess people take a little persuading to try something new!! Thank you for coming along and for taking the trouble to post your review - we look forward to welcoming you to The White Horse again soon. Val, Kelvan & the Team

“Excellent All-Round”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

A local pub which serves good food and beer in the best way possible for a pub. The owners clearly worked hard on their business giving a great customer experience (sorry for the jargon - but that actually is what it was!). The vegetarian options were different and the Tapenades to share made a great starter.

“Lovely local!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were staying at the Caravan Club site at Long Bredy (about 1.5 miles from the White Horse). As caravanners, we usually treat ourselves to one "posh" meal over the weekend we checked at the "local" on the Saturday lunch time to see if they a) allowed dogs - yes and b) whether we had to book a table for the evening. The landlord could not have been more helpful and reserved us a table for 19:30. On arrival the place was already bustling and food was being served everywhere so it was a good job we had booked. We had a lovely meal (with first class Palmers 200 bitter) and the landlord attentively looked after us even though the place was full. Based on tis experience we booked for the Sunday lunch which was also up to expectations. The White Horse is off the beaten track but worth finding. It only has a small capacity therefore it is well worth booking. Recommended.
