Best roast turkey dinner i have had, you know that a chef knows his trade when presented with a lovely moist turkey, goose fat roast potatoes and pigs in blankets plus all the trimmings - no cutting corners in their kitchen. A must for anyone considering going out for a Christmas meal. The gin and whisky selection is always improving,... More

A lovely relaxing lunch in front of a roaring fire. Fish and chips for two was perfectly cooked with crispy batter, well cooked chips, excellent mushy peas and great home made tartare. Dog friendly and decent choice of ales makes this a great stop off after a walk.

Our second visit having just moved in to the area. This time, for our wedding anniversary. It ticks every box for us. Dog friendly, great wine list with diversity and value, spotlessly clean, roaring fires, great owners and staff and simply stunning food. What more can you ask for in a pub? We will be back asap.

I needed somewhere to stay for my annual visit to Avebury, and The White Horse Inn proved convenient, if somewhat off the beaten track. It is a pleasant little inn, with friendly staff. I had a nice evening meal, but it was a bit pricey. The room was pleasant, clean and tidy, with some of the nice little extras you... More

This is a lovely inn/pub/restaurant. We had a table of 8 and we were looked after really well. We preordered the food so it was quick when we sat down. Food was unbelievably good for what we thought was a normal pub. The pork roast in particular was up there with some of the 5* meals I have had. Beef... More

The White Horse wins on both fronts- food and environment. The food is served in a modern style, not huge portions but with care and thought to the flavour combinations and presentation. The eating area in the pub is tastefully decorated and enough space between tables to not be overheard. Service is efficient but not obtrusive. Worth a visit.

It was my first visit to this pub and my companion, a regular, says it was a new team and much improved. The food was excellent, a bit expensive by Cotswolds standards where I live, but the service was great and they seemed very busy so obviously it's going well and deservedly so.

Best Sunday roast I've had in ages! Great use of herbs and attention paid to all of the trimmings - not just the meat. Lovely location, tranquil bar area and gardens. Will be back.
