This is a review relative to the hotel in general as my wife and I, my Mother and my Son and his fiancée stayed here for one night for the Thursford Christmas Spectacular. All 3 rooms were very nicely furnished with showers whilst my wife and I had a lovely bathroom and a 40 inch TV. All very nice but... More

We stayed at the White Horse in Overstrand last year, and re-visited the pub for an evening meal this year, in June. Most of the food is locally sourced, and very fresh. The menu is good and offers a wide range of tempting dishes, cooked to perfection.. When you return to a pub you have enjoyed at a previous date,... More

Stayed here last week, Friday to Monday. Very friendly and helpful staff, food was good but choice a little short for me. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Dog friendly pub and hotel. Good selection of ales and was always busy over the weekend with locals and guests alike. Thoroughly recommended.

We were staying in Overstrand and the White Horse was walking distance. The service was friendly enough and the choice of beers good. I had a gourmet burger - just like a real one but with a fancy bun and a couple of dabs of mustard on the plate. All good fun and I would go back.

This is our first ever review on TripAdvisor we simply had to share our wonderful experience. We are delighted we chose the White Horse for our son's Christening celebrations. The truly beautiful setting and wonderful array of food was throughly enjoyed by our 80 guests. So many of our guests commented on how delicious the food was. The staff were... More

I really was expecting an old fashioned country pub but got a 'modern' looking open space that was too little and just lacked any interest. In fairness, it was busy with locals with football showing on the flat screen - just not really what I was expecting.

We booked this hotel as it is dog friendly and what a brilliant choice it was. The staff were lovely and very helpful and worked very hard and never appeared off duty. They printed off some walking maps too which was very kind. The food is fabulous as can be seen by the busy restaurant on both nights. Breakfast was... More

Several years ago, someone decided to modernise the White Horse in Overstrand. Sadly they have turned it into a very boring, dull, characterless pub with few saving graces. Nothing of any virtue remains, and the colours, the layout, the furniture and the 'art' are firmly stuck in the mid 1990s. Many similar pubs, usually in the suburbs of provincial towns,... More

Paul i certainly won't be introducing you to our interior designer as I don't think you'll get on, I do have concerns however of your dining experiences, please could you email me at the pub in more detail to what you felt the failings were. Enquiries@whitehorseoverstrand.co.uk More

We had a drink here intending to eat as well. However, the menu is quite limited, with a poor choice of non-seafood options, and the prices are quite high for a pub. The interior is pleasant enough, but the bright lights and plain furnishings don't make it very appealing.

Geoff, We do drop a dish off our menu this time of year due to an expected decrease in customer and staff numbers however on our mains we still offer banham chicken, whites burger, rib eye steak and bressingham duck breast, being so close to the sea we feel it's vital we offer a good choice of local seafood options...

We decided to have our wedding at the White Horse after looking at several venues in this area. It was an easy choice as they were incredibly accommodating where we found other venues inflexible. We visited the White Horse many times whilst planning the wedding and always found Ben and his staff professional and welcoming from start to finish. They... More
