A fantastic pub with a friendly atmosphere and first class food. The service is faultless and always go the extra mile to make sure our stay is a good one. I find it very relaxing and a good place to unwind. Everyone is very friendly and would strongly recommend anyone.

This was a cracking place for me and a group of friends (10 of us) to stay after a day out in the country. We enjoyed many good drinks in the welcoming bar and had a delicious meal. No complaints what so ever and the beds rooms were comfy and spotless.

The White Horse has restored my faith in pubs claiming to serve good food. The staff really know what they are doing. A lovely welcome, calm and proficient front of house and serving staff, all capped with excellent well cooked and presented food.

poor reviews about pork pie
We are sorry to hear that that our home made pork pie hasn't been enjoyed! We take great pride in our customers experience being a delightful one from the warm welcome, delicious food (or drink) and exceptional service throughout. We would like to clarify our pork pies are all home made using only the finest pork shoulder, which is always local and sometimes home reared at The White Horse, so very local indeed! The pastry is a traditional lard recipe also. If ever a dish is not to someone's' taste we are more than happy to rectify this if informed.
