    A fabulous restaurant. Seafood options were all delicious and the views were stunning, which added to the atmosphere. The little touches (a card on the table for my Mum's birthday) and outstanding service made for a memorable lunch. Highly recommend this place.

    I came with my family for my sons' 18th birthdays. They gave us a lovely table by the window (the view is incredible.) There were little postcards on the table wishing them a happy birthday, and they were surprised with little birthday puddings too! The food was delicious, and we felt it was good value too. Very relaxed, a gorgeous location (we went for a 'muddy walk' beforehand,) and very special memories made for such an important occasion for us.

    Beautiful location, with fantastic views. Staff welcoming and helpful. Menu choice very heavily sea based. Sunday lunch was great, roast beef finished off to how you like it, so all beef eaters happy. Small issue with one fish dish, but staff resolved it. Nice balance of desserts. Hope to return later in the year to enjoy the balcony with the dog.

    The staff were all incredible. We were served by 4 different members of staff, all of whom took their time with us and ensured we got a personal touch. The food is incredible! It is at the high end, price wise, but it is certainly worth it. The location and ambience of the White Horse is beautiful and it perfectly epitomises the North Norfolk coast through it’s decor and food.

    Ideal location and ambiance - Celebrated a birthday with partner from the USA, she was very impressed - After the meal had a walk along the salt marsh path very nice, prior to retiring for night in Room 9 Only concern was the frosted glass (only) window offering no privacy whilst showering

    Four of us ate yesterday at The White Horse. It's the second time we've been, the first being 12/15 years ago when holidaying here. Now my husband and I live here in Norfolk, so we thought we were all well over due a return visit. It certainly didn't disappoint. Firstly, the variety of dishes on the menu was tremendous, making choosing very hard. For our starters, we had 2 local beef carpaccio, ham hock, served on rarbit crumpet, and honey pumpkin soup served with a floating crab tartlet. All tasting as good as they looked on the plates. Then 3 had the Skrei Cod served on a shellfish chowder, and I had Gurnard fillets served on a cuttlefish rissotto, which again were so flavoursome. ( possibly the only comment was that that "soup" part of the chowder was a little too runny) that said it did not detract from the taste. Our desserts again all pleased, completing an all-around excellent meal. The staff were all " happychappies" whilst professional throughout. Our table gave the ladies the famous view over the marshes, whilst the men people watched and admired the coming and goings of the waiting team. Well done. We will be back with our next house guests , if not before!

    We were “up from London “ so we totally get the market this restaurant goes for …. And understand fine dining . Even with this in mind the portions for our sea bass were ridiculously small for the price . We were so hungry we had to order sides of chips as the ONE chip - don’t get me wrong it was a very nice CHIP just wasn’t enough . Had anyone asked us “ how was your meal “ at any point we would have fed this back but nobody asked us . Ambiance was lovely, service was nice , staff pleasant food delicious but we left feeling just a little bit cheated for the price .

    We love The White Horse. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the staff are lovely, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive and the food is delicious. The menu changes regularly and it’s nice to experiences places that do more than just ‘meat and two veg’. Lovely options of fish with pasta/risotto combinations. Generally, we’re less bothered about deserts but this time we indulged and were a little underwhelmed but we still had a lovely day and there were some nice touches for our anniversary. Thank you!

    A lovely pub we had a table in the window in the conservatory so had an amazing view. Unfortunately I think something must have gone wrong in the kitchen as we were waiting for about 45 mins for our main course. The waitress recognised this though & didn’t charge for our drinks. We would have had desserts but this put us off. I would still go again though as these things happen.
