My business partner and I had lunch at the WH on Friday. He enjoyed fresh cod whereas I had the locally sourced pork belly. All food was delicious, produced quickly, and the service was attentive. For the quality, prices were fair. Well recommended.

Recommended by our B&B hosts, and was very glad that they did. Had an excellent 2 course evening meal here, which was tasty, well presented, and not to large a portion size. Friendly staff who were not over attentive

Excellent evening food. Friendly service. Pleasant and quiet location with tranquil view from a bijou room which was a little on the pricey side for what it was. I would recommend this place for foodies and those who are wine connoisseurs.

I had the misfortune of staying here in December 2016. I had a lengthy wait for my meal despite the place being virtually empty. If I'd had time to wait for it to be remade, I'd have sent it back, as it was horribly salty and barely edible.

We had the salmon and the mushrooms to start, both were delicious - although the salmon could do with more bread. We then had the pork and the duck, again both were excellent gastro-pub dinners. We finished off with the panna cotta and chocolate (pictured). We...

10 adults, 2 children and 1 toddler. Starters, mains and desserts.All the dishes were excellent and portion sizes were just right. Service was prompt and everyone got their meals at the same time. Every dish was to a very high standard and beautifully presented. Couldn't fault it.

Having just written a glowing report on the restaurant here I must confess to being amazed by some of the reviews of the accommodation here. I booked a room based on the nigh on perfect reviews written about this place. For me the pictures on the website are misleading. They give the impression of a first class, high quality b...

We decided to treat all to Sundaylunch and, not knowing the area, we arrived at The White Horse Inn at around 14:00hrs. We asked and were seated without question for lunch (11 of us). Our meal was beautiful and...
