We stayed in the Whitwell room with our dog, Stanley for 2 nights. We were made extremely welcome and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The mattress was very hard and I slept badly the first night, however, after speaking to,the housekeeper, she was so kind to put a feather duvet under the sheet and I slept much better...

Steak night Wednesdays. 2 4 £25 including bottle of wine. WOW...excellent meal and good red wine. Steak cooked medium extra £1 4 peppercorn sauce. Fresh cooked chips, onion rings & juicy sweet tomatoe. Heaven. Lovely surroundings. Great atmosphere. Will be one of my favourites from now on.

Last year we stayed here when my daughter got married in Stamford (we're from N. Ireland) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay so we decided to stay again for a few days when visiting my daughter. We arrived on a Sunday about 4pm but were shocked when the whole place shut down at 5pm. Stuck in the middle of the countryside...

Such a shame as the rooms were good, we stayed in Barnsdale, however couldn't access wifi and it was very noisy above us. Pub and food were excellent, however we had booked it specifically for a night away in a country pub and although we were made aware after enquiring that food was only served until 4.30 we were not...

Organised a 70th birthday celebration here and things could not have been better. Made a block booking for family and had to make various changes between booking and our stay but it was no problem to the team at the White Horse. I have never stayed in such a welcoming place where everything was perfect and nothing too much trouble....

Went in on a Saturday lunchtime, we were sat quickly. We asked for coke but we're served Pepsi which isn't the end of the world but it's always nice to know. Food came fast and was very tasty. Would definitely go again

We booked in here for Valentine's Day night. Gorgeous surroundings & fabulous food. At £25 per head, food was extremely good value & cooked to perfection. Very cosy tables in a rustic environment with low ceiling, stonework & beams. Wonderful 'old style' English pub, with clearly, a very skilled chef. I recommend driving to this place if you are not...
