My wife and I, two years on, have just had dinner twice in prompt succession at the White Horse. (As before, we were staying locally.) We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, the pretty diverse menu and the quality of the food and service enormously each evening. The hardworking husband and wife team, who have owned and run the White Horse for... More

Been using this pub about 3 times year for a few years now good pub grub and fish and chips to die for. Today (first visit for some time) could hardly recognise much on the menu so went for the fish and chips. Since they have always overfed us in the past were pleased to see we could have a... More

We have never had a meal here which has not been excellent. Over the past couple of weeks we have had 2 dinner reservations for large parties and I just wanted to say how impressed we were with the service, the ambience, the quality of the food and the presentation. Our food arrived exactly as ordered, on time, and every... More

Staying locally, so booked here for early dinner. The menu was a bit fussy for our liking. The dish I had was very tasty, although some of the pulses were a little bitter. Friendly welcome, good service.

Five of us had a delicious mid-week lunch. Greeted by a roaring log fire and friendly and helpful owners/staff. We had a drink while we looked through the extensive menu (main meals, light lunches, sandwiches). We all enjoyed the meals we had chosen and we were very well looked after throughout the lunch. Desserts were absolutely delicious. We were just... More

The fish pie was excellent! I have tasted an occasional mussel over the years and always declined a second. Today I ate them all and would go back for more! My husband ate fish and chips declaring them far better than those he ate recently at Tom Kerridge's restaurant in Marlow and way above those served in Aldeburgh. Highly recommended.

We were a pre booked group of 18 and the pub managed us with great skill and friendliness. Divided into groups of 6 for ordering but food arrived well timed and all hot and fresh. Some delicious dishes- my pork was a highlight and venison suet pudding apparently great. Steaks good. Fish and chips only disappointment but we think that... More

On way to Grt Yarmouth wanted a nice pub to stop for lunch and found this little gem. We were greeted by a lovely chap who was very attentive and friendly and enjoyed a lovely lunch in a cosy pub. Definitely come back here
