I visited the white horse for a belated birthday meal with my parents and husband. I have always wanted to eat at the white horse, but as it is a little more pricey than some places, had been waiting for a special occasion. Two of the party had starters, which were small. I has the crispy lamb belly, which was... More

Came here for an evening meal with my family. The setting and decor is very attractive and most of the food was good. Our table had two chicken meals, steak and fish and chips which were all good but for the price, we would have expected more. The chocolate fondants we had for dessert had very little taste to them,... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your experience was not of the usual high standard we pride ourselves on. My brasserie team are first class, professional and charming.

One vegan, and one nut allergy. Large family birthday meal, a separate room to ourselves but with delightfully attentive staff who made menu selection easy. Most of the food was 'five stars' but my rib-eye wasn't - I ordered it rare, but it was just limp. My wife's cod loin on beef cheek just seemed I muddled. However, my brothers... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. My apologies that you did not find the rib-eye up to standard - had you mentioned this to one of the team it would have been replaced. I am however delighted that on the whole you enjoyed your experience with us and would make a return visit. Best wishes. More

We have visited This restaurant about 4 times and we haven't been disappointed so far. The food is amazing but obviously not cheap. The service has always been really good. Because it's in a hotel you can have a drink in the lounge area or outside. Simply nice

Stayed this summer and although the staff seem friendly, they don't seem happy in their jobs! Accommodation was good, food was 50/50 dinner ok breakfast great. Rushed out of the bar at the end of the evening and again if you enjoyed your job...... Think they knees to think about job satisfaction as the staff were nice but not happy... More

What is happening to the White Horse? We've been eating, drinking and celebrating here for the best part of 20 years but with two experiences of really poor service in the last month we are wondering if something has changed. We called in at the end of a Saturday afternoon. On both occasions we ordered tea and tea cakes for... More

The interior is surprisingly upmarket, a high end country-style design that belies the market town pub exterior. The staff were all uniformed, adding to the smart atmosphere. The dining room is quite tightly seated, but large mirrors and French Windows make it light and airy. The menu offered choices well beyond just the usual roast. The roast beef was actually... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. The front of the hotel is deceptive as it gives no indication of the depth of the property, but its pristine appearance gives one an insight into the quality of the product. I am delighted you enjoyed your Sunday lunch with us and have taken on board your comments regarding the roast beef.... More
