“Even the Vegans get their own extensive menu - mainstream here we come”

Reviewed 6 April 2018

I had seen posts on here and on local FB pages singing the praises of this pub which has always been a bit lacklustre before. Anyone who is a plant based eater will know how we are always the 'poor relation' where we often have to ask if there is a vegan option and then get handed something the chef has knocked up in the kitchen. Not so the White Horse. As well as the meat eaters' menu, there is a Vegetarian one and a Vegan one and, joy of joys, it is thought through, with lots of choice including comfort food (which some establishments seem to think we don't eat). The service from our waiters (including a vegan) was first class and the lovely Chef came out to check all was well (it was). I had seitan (what meat) steak, chips, tomato, onion rings. chef-made sauce and my friend chose a pie, They do offer vegan desserts too and I chose the dairy-free ice 'cream' in vanilla and mango and chocolate. Friend was too full. We are booked to go back with some meat-eaters so will be looking forward to hearing their view.

A Vegan meetup group had the most amazing meal last night. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and huge portions! We were made very welcome by all the staff. So much choice with their vegan menu recently introduced by Scarlett and Paul. Fully recommend this lovely pub that provides first class food for vegans as well. I understand Paul the chef is hoping to create menus that enable people to enjoy their meals together, whatever their dietary needs. He certainly has done this with the Vegan menu, Seiten steaks, sausage and mash, roasts and burgers, pies and a chilli. Not forgetting devine desserts. Forgot to take pictures of the side dishes that came with these meals. Also recommend the Vegan Roast on a Sunday, best I have had. Think the roast must be pretty good for omnivores too as it gets pretty booked up on a Sunday.

Really impressed with The White Horse when we visited today for lunch. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating especially with our elderly companion. Excellent range of food - small plates, main courses and puds - which should cover most tastes. The dining area is very nicely decorated adding modern touches to the oldy-worldy pub interior and lovely to have a real fire burning. All in all a very pleasant place to eat and definitely a find for mid-week lunch.

We were lucky to get a last minute table on Sunday with our kids.
The roadt was supper. The starters were huge but is it possible to have too much of a good thing?
Roast was cooked beautifully.
Presentation was excellent
Service the same.
We will be back (particularly as we've just moved to the area 0 lucky us!)
