I came with 5 friends recently on a camping trip, and we discovered this little gem just up the road. We intended to nip in for a pint, but ended up coming back three nights in a row as the hospitality was excellent. Little touches like holding back sunday roasts for us to enjoy during the rugby, and giving us... More

Really great pub. We were in town for a camping weekend, it was wet and seriously windy so we went to the pub. The beer was beautiful, the food was lovely, the log fire was excellent and the pub is a fantastic place to be. We were very lucky to receive a very warm welcome from the landlord and lady.... More

When four people make completely different choices for starters, mains and desserts and each is delighted with their food, you must be in a good restaurant. Lovely welcome, great service, nothing too much trouble. The range of the menu is impressive and the comment "best I've ever tasted" was used often. Not our local, but we'll definitely be back.

I've been in this pub twice. The first time because it had a decent review here and it was close to my office. The second time, the next day, because I indeed enjoyed the first time. Food is good and the atmosphere is warm. A relaxing place after a hard day of work.

This is a good pub with atmosphere, good range of beers, good wine and really good food. Especially the fish! The specials board often has as many as 3 fish dishes. My wife and I both had the Trio of Fish this week and it was excellent. Note, they also have Jazz evenings - so check that out too -... More

Wanted a place for meal where we could meet up with relatives who were 'passing through' in their camper van. Local caravan site was full so the Pub staff kindly agreed for the camper to be parked overnight in their car park. We sat at a table in the bar area for pre dinner drinks and it was a great...

Had a party of 6 and everyone one of us was extremely happy with everything. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Every course was so tasty and not on the small side. You get what you pay for, and the restaurant itself is such a nice cost setting. Definitely recommend for anyone who has good taste.

Description
Parts of the ancient building of the White Horse date back to the 16th century, and the two large Inglenook open fires bear testament to their heritage with their smoking chambers and their priest hole. These fires which are always alight during the winter months throw their heat into the various bar areas.The locals bar, with its dart board, and cosy village atmosphere retains the typical English pub image. Roaring log fire, the slap of cards on the table during a crib match and the thump of darts in the board, echo quietly in this bar. No background music can be heard, just the agitated discussions of the village elders who frequent this oasis of good beer & conversation.The lounge bar, with its equally large Inglenook can accommodate up to 40 people sitting and many more standing. Used by many people as a dining area, it still retains its “Olde World Charm”. A comfortable Chesterfield and deep farmhouse chairs merely add to the pleasant ambience of this lovely area.The restaurant has been built in a new area that extends towards the lovely pub garden. Seating 90 customers it makes a perfect place to enjoy the excellent food that is always available.
