    They had run out of dough and don't sell chicken Sunday lunch, the burger was dry and it came with normal chips not sweet potato fries as ordered. The halloumi fries were nice but main meals took forever to arrive, beef on Sunday dinner full of fat and chewy.

    Excellent Sunday lunch . Best roast beef dinner I have had for years! Young staff lovely and efficient . Only down side was that bar was full of local football team who were unacceptably loud and sweary . We felt sorry for your staff and other diners who had young children with them . Not sure you can do much about it as the football team are sponsored by the White Horse ! Perhaps your manager could have a quiet word with the team captain . We are not prudish but it is unacceptable to expect to dine with a background noise of shouting dotted with the F word and C word.

    The food (steak night) was excellent as usual. Extremely good value for money. The steak ( rump) was cooked just like we like it. The sides were very good especially the chips.

    Very good. Need to try to create more atmosphere......but not by barstaff choosing ear bleeding music as they allow in other pubs. Cater for your client base and strive for innovation like Miller & Carter....inclusive starter and e.g. onion loaf and excellent sauces with the steaks.

    The fish and chip Friday deal for £20 for two meals was good value. Nice food and good service. My only criticism and its a very very small one was that the cappucino was truly dire. More like milk. But that didn't spoil our meal.

    Food and service were great. The waitress was new and couldn’t have been more pleasant. However the place was cold. We asked for the warmest place and were seated by a radiator- we then had to ask for this to be turned on. There were no fires in the fireplaces.

    Food good, however, poor beer selection no real ale, only pale ale, wife's favourite gin, out of stock. Only English mustard no French. Not major issues, but details count. Do pubs who allow Dogs in all areas recognise between 20 to 30% of people are allergic to dogs, including me. One dog was over 3 foot high and left saliva on one table top.

    The food was absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend there Cheese and Onion Pie. Beer Battered Cod and there chunky chips unbeatable. Also another customer on next table we were talking to had the Beef and Guinness casserole with Dumplings and vegetables. They said they go regular and that’s there favourite. Also would highly recommend there Cheesecake selection. Best cheesecake I’ve ever had. The staff were excellent. Lovely country village pub. All original old fireplaces and wood work. So calming and relaxing and absolutely spotless.

    Really enjoyed our experience at The White Horse. There was a wait for food but it didn’t really matter as we weren’t in any rush and the staff kept us informed throughout. They gave us a drink on the house to compensate and it was New Tears Eve at a busy time. The food was good too and I would highly recommend the spicy prawn starter. Thank you for making our visit one to remember for all the right reasons.

    What a beautiful experience we had. The Christmas lunch was superb, the meat was tender, and the rest of the food was delicious. The atmosphere was beautiful, and the service was extremely attentive. We will definitely be going back and trying the rest of the menu, esp a Sunday roast. Would highly recommend it, and I'm a fussy foodie, so trust me, this is a lovely little place with delicious food 😋
