This is a pub we visit on occasionally and have never been disappointed. Went with some friends for Christmas dinner and all I can say was that it was superb. Certainly not the cheapest in the area but I'm a great believer in that you get what you pay for. Everything from the unobtrusive service to the quality of the... More

Well, with a title like that I had better explain why! The main lounge area has now been turned into a non friendly extension to the dining area. The wooden tables and chairs are probably more suited to a cheap cafe! And they are very uncomfortable if you just want to sit and have a drink and a chat. Yes... More

I am truly grateful that you will be avoiding the White Horse for a few more years. This was a truly miserable man, who complained to the staff that every time he comes to the pub he cannot get a table to eat. Probably because we are very busy and he cannot be bothered to ring up and book a... More

We visited for a family meal, 14 of us, including children. Everything was great, staff were friendly, food was delicious. We had chosen in advance from the Christmas party menu and the food arrived hot, well cooked and presented. We all had a great evening, thank you.

On arrival a little delay on being allocated a table for four diners plus a short delay for drinks orders, seemed bar staff favoured locals/regulars. However may have just entered at wrong time, meal orders taken quickly and served competently within 30 mins. Menu plentiful and perhaps above average bar/pub standard. Very pleasant midday meal. Recommend and will return.

We'd been treated to an evening away by my in-laws for our wedding anniversary at the Potters Heron hotel just up the road. Having consulted Tripadvisor on our arrival we didn't really fancy the hotel restaurant so decided to give this place a go as it was close by. We arrived quite early in the evening so it wasn't particularly... More

Visited many times and have always had good service and the food is always good value. The White Horse Burger is hopefully not made from a white horse, but it tastes ok anyway.

Visited with friends. Really nice meal. Not rushed, good food. Much bigger inside than you'd think. I'd go again if in the area.

We were a party of 7, with reservation for Saturday Lunch. We arrived ahead of our 12.45 reservation, and ordered drinks at the bar, 7 drinks, 2 of which were incorrect.

Visited with family, including 2 year old. We sat in the bar area near the fire. Good menu choice, nice kids menu. Lovely fish menu too. The staff were pleasant and welcoming, the food was tasty and appetising. I had the lamb shank - good choice!!! Will certainly return.

Description
Parts of the ancient building of the White Horse date back to the 16th century, and the two large Inglenook open fires bear testament to their heritage with their smoking chambers and their priest hole. These fires which are always alight during the winter months throw their heat into the various bar areas.The locals bar, with its dart board, and cosy village atmosphere retains the typical English pub image. Roaring log fire, the slap of cards on the table during a crib match and the thump of darts in the board, echo quietly in this bar. No background music can be heard, just the agitated discussions of the village elders who frequent this oasis of good beer & conversation.The lounge bar, with its equally large Inglenook can accommodate up to 40 people sitting and many more standing. Used by many people as a dining area, it still retains its “Olde World Charm”. A comfortable Chesterfield and deep farmhouse chairs merely add to the pleasant ambience of this lovely area.The restaurant has been built in a new area that extends towards the lovely pub garden. Seating 90 customers it makes a perfect place to enjoy the excellent food that is always available.
