The best of the best, I loved The White Horse .... a great menu with something for everyone, fabulous service, fresh delicious food in a setting that speaks volumes. This has to be one of the greats of Wiltshire.... a must visit in my book.

Main meals in a pub should not be £16 - £18 for portions of Pork with a single piece of meat and the duck option with just 2 slices of meat and only the size of a starter! Even a side portion of greens was an extra not as standard for the over-rated main meals. Strongly advise trip advisor visitors... More

Dear Steve, One can tell you're quite 'disappointed' by such a scathing review so I'll keep this short and sweet. The pork is some of the best if not, the best, rare breed pork in the country, and the duck breasts are from Creedy Carver, so are a quarter of a kilo each raw weight. This pub prides its self...

New management very recently started, and for the first time in a long while we visited for a midweek non-special-occasion. Although things are still getting organised the service was friendly and the food excellent from the "Pub Classics" range. Rabbit Lasagne had a great texture with no slimeyness at all, and a slightly gamey flavour of the rabbit. The Panna... More

Traipsing around Wiltshire and found this place quite by luck. Ordered vegetarian roast and roast beef. They have someone in the kitchen who knows what they're doing. We'll be back to try again - but for now, the food is outstanding - that most elusive of all dishes; actual genuinely crunchy roast potatoes. Rare beef. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed there 3 times with work and it is such a pleasure. Great little place, lovely warm welcome and wonderful food. It is quiet and peaceful for a great nights sleep. The rooms are well kitted out, solid oak furniture, really comfortable beds and thick fluffy towels. Some of the rooms have french doors and/or a Juliette balcony (for the... More

Rode out from calne to the Ivy just to have a beer there. Lovely quaint old pub with what I think is probably the best beer in the local area. Well worth a visit.

We have recently moved back to Compton Bassett. After learning the pub had changed hands we thought we should give it a go for food - we have not been disappointed, having been 3 times in as many weeks! The food was excellent, the staff were very polite and the atmosphere was good. Would definitely recommend.

We had the most delicious meal that I have ever had in a pub, it really was outstanding and then had a very comfortable night in one of their rooms followed by an excellent breakfast. Really hope to get back there again sometime.
