Have had several meals at The White Horse, and every time the food has been excellent, along with superb service. Highly recommended. The meat comes from a local butcher, and is second to none. Very pleasant atmosphere, altogether a very pleasant experience.

We spent the most pleasant evening enjoying their excellent choice of dishes from their varied and very reasonably priced menu. However what shines above all is the efficiency of the very friendly and hard working staff. This is an illustration of how an establishment can be run properly and charging several times less for their menu, which must make them... More

Food is great and the kids all had a good time and the staff didn't mind them making noise. Have been here several times and will be going back again. Would recommend for a quite get together or for a good night out. They also have regular events with live music.

Stopped on our way down to Cornwall for lunch. Staff were lovely and the food was great. Made welcome and our dogs were spoilt rotten by everyone. A real find a well worth a trip. Plenty of car parking made it easy to spend time there.

I just stayed for 2 nights at this lovely inn situated in Launceston town centre. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and as expected with most cornish people I have met over the years, everybody were naturally friendly and laid back. The Breakfast was ample and well cooked and I had the pleasure of sampling the special... More
