Visited the White Horse with my wife for a late lunch on the run-up to Christmas. Ordered from the festive menu and all three courses were interesting and well presented . Good value too. As always, the staff were very friendly and the restaurant cosy and well decorated. Hope to return soon.

Had a great meal here with friends and family. Staff very friendly and helpful. More than willing to adapt the menu to suit certain requests.Very reasonable priced with a good selection of draft and bottled drinks. Will definitely return. Lovely lounge and public bar also

I had lunch here one cold Saturday afternoon, albeit just sopu, open sandwiches and a few beers, but they were quite good. The place was quite empty but there was a lovely warm wood burning stove that created a wonderful atmosphere, so we decided to book for dinner that evening. What a mistake!. We were not seated in the restaurant...

Thanks for taking the time to pen the details of your recent visit. It is disappointing that you had 2 contrasting visits in the one day. You were sat in the lounge close to the fire (which was on – but not roaring) as we felt this provided a better atmosphere. We would have been happy if you had wanted...

Room - 1 towel between 2, door difficult to lock required help, one mug between 2, 3 pillows between 2 would expect 2 each. Dinner - gammon steak had a bizarre pickled onions on the side instead of vegetables. Tough and very salty. Not worth £13! Staff had to be reminded to bring our drinks. Totally forgotten. Breakfast - to...

We are disappointed to receive this review but not at all surprised. We were expecting it. Occasionally when dealing with a customer you know you are never going to meet their expectations - whatever they may be. As a business we undoubtedly got a few things wrong, that said, I have a more balanced interpretation of your visit and our...

Stayed one night as a wedding guest . Room basic but clean and comfortable breakfast was good but service was slow ( surely when the hotel is full extra staff at breakfast a good idea !!). Staff were friendly and knew what they were doing . Price of drink in the lounge and function suite very expensive.

Thank you for taking the time to detail your visit to us. I am glad to hear the food was good and the staff were friendly and attentive. It is disappointing you felt the drink prices were high. We do check competitors prices regular and believe they are commensurate with other similar venues in the area. We will continue to...

Before I review the White Horse Inn, I need to put my trip in perspective in order to explain how much of a difference good people can make in life!! Having arrived from London, on a 4 hour delayed flight into Aberdeen, with my car rental place having closed (as it was 11.30pm), I discovered I had left my wallet...

3 of us booked an overnight stay whilst bird-watching in the area. On arrival we received a very warm friendly welcome and the set up was explained clearly. The hotel is of plain appearance and the rooms were basic but comfortable and clean. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. In the morning we also enjoyed an...
