We booked the table for 20:00hrs, we arrived on time and twenty minutes after being seated we were brought bread as a way of an apology because they were going to give priority to the Christmas party table who arrived at about 20:15hrs. We actually got our meals at about 20:45, which we didn't finish because we had eaten the bread, we had no idea how long our meal would be as the waitress couldn't say. The food was over priced for what it was, and the selection on the menu was minimal. We didn't find the service particularly fantastic either. We specifically asked for wheelchair access, there was a struggle to get through the gate, as they have situated the bike stand there, and when there is a bike, the wheel comes across the path, so maybe an idea to relocate the bike stand? Also the access for wheel chairs is right round to the rear of the property, and there is no sign to point you in the right direction so we were getting cold while trying to work out where we should go. The toilets were not up to standard either, with the used paper towel bin overflowing across the floor. It was our final get together before Christmas and the overall experience was very disappointing. Sadly a second visit is not on the cards.

We’ve been several times before & it’s been lovely but felt let down in this occasion. Service was great initially but went downhill after their starter. We had to wait a long time for our main & actually had to ask if it would be much longer. We think we were forgotten. We also had to ask for the bill twice. It had quietened down by then so it could not be attributed to that. The staff on the whole are lovely but very young. Maybe a little more training in customer service would help. We will not be going back anytime soon for dinner but may go for breakfast.

We had the Sunday roast which was gorgeous, perfectly cooked followed by a sumptuous dessert, great view over the fields whilst eating, restaurant full but still fine for talking, we have visited before and will do again, thank you x

Food was lovely apart from the sweet potato waffles. They were too peppery. Maybe let the customer season them themselves.

Food was delicious and the service was good too, the only reason I have given it 4 stars for service was because the waitress forgot to bring our water over but apart from that it was great.

Will be going over to try out their Saturday breakfast menu too!

Attentive staff, good food, nice decor, desserts a little expensive, huge portions (not always a good thing!) clean facilities, reasonable parking, overall a great pub and much improved by the new owners.

Sunday 3rd November 5pm,
The meal looked very nice although a quarter of the plate covered in warm red cabbage warm roast potatoes and 3 warm full length carrots, beef as you would want it , moist and very tasteful and the Yorkshire pudding was very nice, my wife’s meal was the same apart from the meat which she chose the pork 2 thin slices , the Camembert starter to share was great, I will book again as I think the food had been held over too long so it’s not fair to judge it on a single sitting ! So I look forward to another chance to sample your delightful menu .

Pizza and a pint night at our local. As always the food and service was great. So pleased to have this pub nearby that makes a real effort to offer something different and hosts themed nights!

Service was great, both servers were polite, helpful and friendly. Food was good, with very generous portions. I don’t think my food arrived the warmest, when added to talking a lot catching up with a friend made it even less warm. Ho hum. The only sourer to our evening was the lack of coffee - we initially declined, but then changed our minds ten minutes or so later. It was only 21:40 by this point but the coffee machine had been switched off and they weren’t prepared to turn it on... bit of a shame. But I’d still go again, food was good, ambiance was good, just don’t forget to order your coffee early doors...

Great location for us and a lovely setting. Our table was booked mid-afternoon on a Sunday for sunday dinner. The food is very average sadly, we all felt there was evidence of the food sitting under either heat lamps/hot plates. Really wanted The White Horse to be a good culinary experience but this was not the case.

First visit, we will come again with fiends and family. Steak was perfectly cooked even though one was requested medium to well done and one medium rare, the chef can definitely cook steaks . Menu has something for everyone, gastro style but not pretentious like some.
Staff were great.

Fabulous Sunday lunch slightly spoiled by the female waitresses who were just miserable and not attentive to us at all. We think eating out should be enjoyable and the staff are a big part of the overall experience and The White Horse was let down badly by it's people.

Fifty characters you say well I'm the only character I know, but in a good way....every thing was as it should be...and to get me out on a lunch time mid week mid harvest ....it has to be good. Well done.

We were very well received and had the option of any where to sit including with our dog. We chose the garden as the weather was good and we received excellent service in a very pleasant setting. The meals we chose were very good and the overall experience excellent.
