The venue itself is a bit dated, its mainly suitable for large parties,but they do do lunches some days , the kitchen caters brilliantly for large numbers , its set up is perfect for weddings and parties, its just the decor thats a bit gawdy, the use of the spaces isnt great , it has huge potential to be amazing...

Amazing food as always but the service was awful , we had to ask someone to get the table cleared after eating and we waited 45 mins before the sweet trolley arrived , staff seem more interested in setting tables ready for next sitting its a pity as the food is really good

Excellent Sunday meal, been a few times before and we had our wedding reception here in 2010, but we had not been for couple years but had been told portion sizes had gone down - not true. Portions still huge and still great value. Would highly recommend.

We have been to the white heather a few times and have never been disappointed with the quality of the Sunday lunch. You have choices of meat depending on the time of year come with a healthy appetite.

Large dining rooms, well stocked bars providing excellent service and the very best quality of local food served at "farmers" quantities. Booking essential for Sundays to get your preferred time and advisable on Wednesdays for Senior Citizen's lunches. Always very busy keeping the serving staff on their toes. My Brother in Law, when up from Kent, insists on dining in... More

If you want value for money this is the place to go... The portions are huge!!! Always well cooked food and quick service. It does feel like your sitting in a big barn though!

Have been to the White Heather on many occasions over a lot of years and have always enjoyed it, however the service on Sunday was painfully slow! The young waiters and waitresses did a valiant job but the fault must lie with the management! Poor organisation for one of the busiest days of the year! Food excellent as always but... More

This is a very popular place and with good reason - loads of parking, huge dining room, huge portions, prompt service and very reasonably priced. But, you get what you pay for - a set menu with nice meat but overcooked vegetables, chips with everything, bland gravy - just what you'd expect for a place geared up for mass catering.... More
