We meandered down a country road off the A4 to this pretty looking country pub. Parking was plentiful and the pub was smart; the dining room had good views outside and was well presented. Service was friendly but a bit slow for the main meal. 2 pork, 1 beef and 1 lamb roast was ordered and thoroughly enjoyed. The meats... More

Situated off the main roads of the area, this country pub/restaurant/hotel had been recommended by a friend. My wife and I visited the restaurant yesterday and enjoyed an excellent meal. The locally sourced food was both superbly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was efficient and unobtrusive. We shall be back very soon!

This restaurant is located within a beautiful surrounding, with very helpful and lovely staff. But most importantly... The most fantastic food as always. We will be returning here again in the future.

Have eaten in The White Horse Inn on several occasions and every time the food has been exceptional. I have tried the Risotto, Lamb and the Flat Iron Steak - they have all been well cooked, tasty and left me wanting to return.

The only reason I can think this is a 4 star hotel is maybe because they leave some complimentary (stale) biscuits and instant coffee in the bedroom. Room needed a lick of paint. Light fixtures didn't work. No toilet paper in the bathroom. Lunch was nice though. Although that too, was overpriced. Cutlery and glass dirty, so had to ask... More

Good facilities, clean, quiet and very comfortable. A number of steps to and in bathroom could be a problem, for limited mobility guests. Nice restaurant and good food, but full English breakfast was on the small side and would leave someone with a hearty appetite left feeling hungry.

I ate here this evening with a group of friends. There were originally 10 of us so we were asked to pre-order. Unfortunately people weren't able to attend in the end and there were six of us on the night, five of us eating. We arrived to a warmish welcome and taken through to our table.

The hotel is a good one, clean and quiet and comfortable. The rooms are in a separate block so there is no noise from the pub. The restaurant was a bit of a let-down, not as good as I expected it to be having read some of the euphoric comments from previous diners. The food was good but not great... More
