Booked here for Sunday lunch and food was nearly flawless, generous portions and presented well. It was nice to have food arrive hot! The lamb was delicious. Staff were attentive, but a little dry, we do enjoy happy staff & felt we had somehow annoyed them at times.However, they did check we were happy and all our needs were met.... More

We were planning to meet some friends in the 'shire for a walk to the White Horse at Cherhill. A friend recommended that we should have our lunch at the pub with the same name that is 3 miles away in Compton Bassett. I am so delighted that he did as dining in country pubs can be a precarious business.... More

This place is well out of the way. The roads leading here are of the unmarked country variety. But it´s worth the drive. The service was the most attentive we enjoyed on a tour where we dined out somewhere different in the Cotswolds every evening. Very good wines at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere with lowered lighting, candles and a... More

In November, I reserved a table for a special family meal to celebrate my father's 90th birthday and was told that they would probably be open on the evening of 27th December. I called again in early December and was reassured that food would be served on the night of the 27th. A member of staff called me on the... More

We booked a table for special post-Christmas evening out. Mid afternoon on the actual day, a member of staff rang us and said they'd cancelled our reservation: they had been busy and had no food left. Extremely disappointing to say the least. We found somewhere else and had a fabulous evening. Won't be returning to the White Horse.....or attempting another... More

I stayed here with friends at the beginning of December. We had a lovely relaxing evening. The atmosphere was perfect. The pub was cosy with a lit fire and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. I started the evening with a pomegranate prosecco cocktail which was delightful after a long day at work. We stayed and had a three course meal,... More

Based on an excellent visit a year ago with the previous owners/management, we wanted to try again (under new management) with some friends from afar. On booking; The Christmas menu looked great, £20 for two courses or £24 for three so we all booked three courses. It was a little surprising that we had to give our selections for starter,... More
