We went as a group as had a lovely time. Gorgeous setting. Bit disappointing as a few items we wanted to order were not on the menu and there was a mistake with one of the sides. The food is good pub grub and I am sure we will return at some point.

The pub and restaurant were very busy when we arrived for our 7.00 p.m. booking. We were shown to a table straightaway and furnished with food menus. A waitress arrived to take our drinks order at 7.15. We asked to see a drinks menu and ordered our drinks plus a sharing pre-dinner platter. Our drinks arrived at 7.30 and we ordered our food and reminded the waitress about our pre-dinner platter. Starters arrived for 2 of our party at 8.00 p.m. - no pre-dinner platter. We cancelled it and ordered more drinks. By 8.15 our drinks hadn’t arrived. The waiter told us “ There’s only one barman”. Our main meals arrived at 8.30.
The food was very nice but the poor service was embarrassing as we’d taken friends out for the evening.
As I said, the whole place was very busy but there weren’t enough staff on to give an acceptable service.

The welcome was lovely, and the first course was piping hot,just out of the oven, excellent, but the main, mine was tepid and the chips were the same, theyhave not just come from the Same place. They re cooked and much better the second time.
The sweets, of ice cream, for what it was was very over priced

We had a lovely evening at the White Horse, Tilbrook. After hearing great things and seeing the renovations online, we couldn’t wait to visit and we were not disappointed.

Really enjoyed our food and will be returning to try more off of the menu. Thank you very much for an enjoyable
evening.

This is a pub we have known for many years and use it as a half way meeting point to enjoy a meal with friends, we were sad when it closed. Now reopened and decorated to a very high standard it looks great, sadly the food does not match up to that. The menu is very pretentious, with some very strange combination dishes and we all had difficulty finding something. I opted for the beef blade bourguignon, described as having the 'delicious flavours of Southern France. It was utterly tasteless, the meat was stringy and very poor quality, there were 2 button mushrooms, what appeared to be 4 tiny bits of fatty bacon and barely a spoonful of well under cooked cabbage, no other vegetables. It was dreadful. My wife had the Mushroom ricotta filo tart which was disgusting. Neither of us finished our meals, which are described in the menu as 'pub classics', really?? They need to improve the menu considerable with some sensible options and not just burgers and pizza of which there were a lot. Thoroughly disappointing.

We were made very welcome on arrival and quickly shown to our table. The menu was extensive and our meals of the salmon and plaice were very good and tasty. The dessert menu was good and we had an excellent sweet but I would suggest perhaps a fork could be given as well as a spoon for the dessert.

This was our first visit to the White Horse at Tilbrook, which was recommended by friends. We booked in advance, but when we arrived we felt as though they were 'finding' us a table.. we were then squeezed onto the tiniest table for 2 we've 'ever' eaten at, which had criss-cross legs that you either had to uncomfortably push your legs in the middle of or sit very wide legged (which is not exactly easy with a skirt on!). The food was bland, the peppercorn sauce watery and the chip fat definitely needed changing (which we found out to our cost later via indigestion). We ordered a drink which never arrived but which appeared on our bill. And generally, it was not an experience we are planning to repeat. Which is a shame, as we only live 15/20 mins away and were looking forward to having a new pub/restaurant to enjoy and take our friends and family to.

We visited The White Horse at 4pm on New Year's Day after making an online reservation in the morning. The friendly staff, family ambiance, excellent food a good range of beers, fine wines and selection of gins meant that we all had a fantastic and memorable family meal.

Excellent service and probably the best Sunday beef roast I’ve had in a pub for a while. Sensible portion size. Everything cooked to perfection. Tasty gravy. Generous amount of pink beef. Service was friendly and attentive. Very attractive pub with a warm and welcoming feel.

Although nice food and lovely setting the attentiveness left a bit to be desired as were seated for easily 20 minutes before even being asked what we would like to drink. In addition a lack of soft drink choice and burgers (getting on for a third of the menu) were not available.
Left feeling disappointed.

They got the starter order wrong, The catch of the day was very dry as if it had been either frozen or poorly cooked and the boiled potatoes where presented as if they had already been out. When pointed out a member of staff said he would inform the Chef. No response from any one. Not an enjoyable evening.

My second lunchtime visit. The food menu is impressive and the food is excellent. A bit of a problem with the beer pump caused a delay with serving it up but was a good pint when it arrived. I think the waitress forgot that it had been ordered - they do seem a little distracted.

My only adverse comment about the White Horse is that for a country pub, the menu is a bit pretentious. Personally, I don’t eat burgers, but £17 seems a lot of money for a burger, no matter how big it is. I would like to see a few more basic meals on the menu before I visit again. That said, the food is well prepared and the table service is excellent.
