The White Horse
The bar is warm & cosy, with old parquet & low beams hung with antique copper jugs, while the dining room is light & fresh, its French windows opening onto a sunny terrace. In our charming private dining room, up a winding stair in the oldest part of the pub, we can comfortably host a dinner party for twelve.

As always - quality food and excellent staff service
A pleasant ambience and friendly service Effective spacing of tables
Really lovely atmosphere, excellent menu beautifully cooked, friendly service. Thanks for a great evening!
Very nice atmosphere overall. We sat outside and it was really nice. Portions were a bit on the small side. Would be nice to have children’s options on the breakfast menu too.
So glad you had a good time, we appreciate your very feedback and will take this on board, please come back and see us soon.
The atmosphere in the White Horse is so buzzing and lively. The food is delicious and the service attentive.
It can get pretty noisy so not great for me with hearing difficulties, but I’d still totally recommend you experience this fabulous restaurant.
So glad you had a good time and the team looked after you., we appreciate your feedback, please come back and see us soon
Food of high quality, staff excellent very friendly, very popular place and rightly so.
So glad you had a good time, we appreciate your very positive feedback, please come back and see us soon Vespasian.
We booked for late dinner (8pm) but kitchen had closed early so couldn’t order hot food from main menu. I get that sometimes kitchen close early depending on level of activity but there was still another hour before closing time. It’s unfortunate as we enjoy the White Horse. We decided to go elsewhere.
Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed would love to pick this up with you directly. Please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org m so we can look to putting this right.
Fantastic food. Great service.
Fantastic news- thank you for the great review
Great location and friendly staff food could be better for the price
Thank you for your review and feedback- we value all guests comments. We do hope to welcome you back soon!
Limited menu. Automatically served pint of soft drinks without requesting - small niggle. IT was cold as heaters had been moved to football area (empty). Duck main sauce was overpowering and Cod main whilst fish was well cooked, hard to find any accompanying vegetable amongst the rice. Starters nicely presented but expensive for portion size as compared to other local venues offering very similar options. Roast was very average. A shame as its such a great location / venue.
Thank you for your review- we value all guest feedback. It's disappointing to hear your visit was not up to our usual standards. We would love to chat direct and make amends? Please get in touch at email@example.com m.
Food was fairly good.. Steak a little thin. pie was good. Needs a bit more excitement on menu. Great service and ambience.
Thanks for taking the time to review us, It looks like by your grading we fell short on the food. We love to listen and learn so we will take your comments on board. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
We were really looking forward to our lunch for mum's birthday, but unfortunately the food and the attitude of one member of staff fell well below what was hoped for and expected. Two of us had the burger and it was so overcooked, only managed to stomach about a third of it. When we told the waiter, his response after speaking to the chef was "that's how it comes". He suggested that he had informed management, but that they were disinterested. With no reduction in the bill and the waiter clearly not caring in the slightest, even when we said we wouldn't come back again, we asked to speak to a manager. I will say the manager could not have reacted better, was very apologetic and remedied the situation by refunding us for the burgers. We were told the burgers have to be fully cooked like that due to how they get them, but that doesn't excuse how the waiter dealt with it. We won't go back, which is a shame. Maybe if you try something else you'll be luckier.
Hi Nicola, Thank you for sharing your feedback- we are always listening to our guests and try to rectify any wrong doings. This doesn’t sound like our usual high standards. Would you be able to get in touch direct at firstname.lastname@example.org m, so we can discuss and investigate further? Hopefully speak soon.
The venue is in a beautiful location with large garden areas to eat outside. This is the one thing that encouraged us to go there.
Upon arrival we were told ‘walk-ins’ were not considered as they operate at full capacity and they take bookings only. We were extremely disappointed so we went back to the car to check if we can book online and slots were available. We managed to wait 15 mins in the car and get a booking but it would have helped if the staff actually checked or asked us to book online.
We sat at the table and decided to order via the QR code which displayed a limited menu. Every time we went to order something, the app suggested we couldn’t because it wasn’t available. After ten mins we asked staff to assist and take the booking. We received chips with no condiments. Coffee was bought to me with sugar but no teaspoon or milk. We felt that we were inconveniencing the staff a little too much but this should be standard. Not sure the staff were trained well enough. All in all I think the service lacked in many ways.
Oh No- I am sorry to hear you recent visit with us was anything less than great! We would love the opportunity to discuss this with you directly and hopefully make amends. Please email us at email@example.com m Thank you for your review.

Thanks for your review Lucylu. We would love to chat direct about your visit? Please get in touch at email@example.com m
They could make everything a bit nicer to reflect price pancakes bacon and syrup is as said no nice berries or something exciting on the plate quite basic. Scrambled eggs the worst I’ve ever so grainy yuck. Such a shame as the place is so lovely and staff are so friendly

Great food and great service.
Great news- thank you!
Context of this review is that it was the 2nd day of re-opening restaurants in the UK following Covid-19 (May 2021). The restaurant seemed disorganised, the staff seemed to be having issues with almost every customer table (slow, delayed items, missing items) and the food unfortunately was not that nice. Fried chicken tasted as if it had been fried in the same oil as fish items. The burger was overcooked, the salad items with it a bit lacking. The non-alcoholic Apple Mojito was really good. I would not recommend based upon my experience.
Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that everything was not right and would love to pick this up with you directly. Please do get in touch with us at email@example.com m so we can look to putting this right.
My daughter and I booked here for the first time and I was very impressed. The food was gorgeous and the staff where great . It was a really a lovely lunch and the service was spot on . I would definitely be returning with the whole family and very impressed with everything , could not fault this pub and we even manage to stay warm as they have heaters outside .
Aw thanks for the lovely review Catherine- we do hope to you and the family soon!
Great food, nice venue and they seated myself and my elderly mother right next to the outdoor heaters which was especially good of them.
Thanks for the great review Nicholas!
Had a lovely night at the White Horse, very good set up during lockdown. Great service and lovely food
Thanks Paul- we have done our very best! Glad you had a good time, come back soon!
Very good food and service. Very happy........................
Great to hear- thanks Ian!
Service was friendly, but generally slow. We even had to ask for menus.
Food was OK but nothing special
Thanks for your review- we value all guest feedback. We would love to know more about your visit. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org m.
Nice setting blankets provided good covid measures. I had scallops to start which were delicious but the veggie special of tomato risotto was a little disappointing and very over priced at £17
Thank you for your review- we are always listening to our guests. Glad to hear the scallops were delicious, however I'm sorry to read about the risotto. Next time you book please email us email@example.com m and we will ensure you are look after.
Very well set up for outdoor ‘Covid’ dining. Food excellent. Service could be a little quicker. Overall very good though.
Thanks for the review- we're so glad you enjoyed. Sorry the service was a little slow, it has been a busy start! We hope to see you again soon.
Great ambience and staff were really accommodating. Unfortunately the food was disappointing and massively overpriced. Sunday roast was ok if unspectacular but the miso cod was bland, dry and seemingly lacking some
of the ingredients mentioned in the description. Disappointing.
Thanks for your review Tim. Glad to hear the team were accommodating but we would love to chat direct about your meals. Please could you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org m. Thanks again!
Outside space great, staff lovely and food good. Only problem is rthsi s not really a place for a cold day or evening dining. All the heaters ar for the tables in the centre, most of the dining tables ar eon the perimeter and there were no heaters so it was just freezing. We noted that many of the heaters were not working. So not a place for al fresco until it gets warmer , then it will be fantastic.
Oh no -what a shame, we are sorry about that. We do have an area which is not heated but this is generally used for walkin trade if the weather is right and not bookable. We will check all our heaters and make sure they are all working. Please do come back and see us again!
Really lovely little place
Thank you for the lovely feedback- we hope t see you again soon
Lovely to be back safe and friendly
And its good to back serving our lovely guests again. Come back and see us soon
We had a lovely brunch in the outdoor seating area. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly which is all you can ask for really. The food was delicious - I had the full english breakfast with perfect poached eggs; my wife had the smashed avocado which was lovely and lemony with a chilli kick. No complaints other than maybe a slightly bigger portion of beans :)
Ambience is very nice outside and we had a relaxing time. The only minor detraction is the outside area is very close to a busy road but closed off enough for it not to be too bothersome.
Thank you for your review- sorry if we were a little shy on the beans, please feel free to ask for more next time. Come back and see us again soon.
Food amazing great place
Thanks for the five stars
Great first day out from lockdown
Yay! Thanks for choosing us Julie, we hope to see you again soon
Had a table not in the tented areas but around the corner no lighting had to use phone light to choose food from menu and again to look at the food when it came as you could not see what you were eating. Slow service and disappointing food
Oh no, so sorry about this - its been a really busy week for us and we have found our selves a little rushed off our feet occasions- which is the reason for the slower than normal service! Please forgive us. We are also looking at our outside lighting in that particular area- We are doing our very best to get the outside experience right and value your feedback. Please come back and see us again soon!
Very good service, very friendly staff, food amazing and good value. Having to sit outside because of lockdown wasn't too bad even in the cold as the staff kept the outdoor log burner nice and burning for our table so it was reasonably warm, I would definitely recommend and will be going back soon.
Thank you !! We hope to see you agin soon
Enjoyed a tasty lunch alfresco on the terrace, fortunately hot water bottles were supplied to keep us warm :) Service was slow but they can be forgiven as busy due to 1st week since re-opening.
Thank you for your understanding, come back and see us again
