The new owners only took this place over on 25/10/2016 and we couldn't have received a more friendly welcome,they were so nice and couldn't do enough for us. We ordered food which was really nice and good value I really hope this venture really takes off for them they really deserve it.

Possibly the worst pizza I have ever eaten. Also the staff were rude and it is overpriced. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone

We walked in to The White House with the intention of getting a couple of drinks and some dinner. We arrived and there was nobody around staff wise. We found this strange and sat down after waiting a while. A man dashed past and we asked if we could sit where we had already sat and he seemed a little... More

Unfriendly and irresponsible staff. Do not go to this restaurant if you do not spoil your precious holiday.

This place is just the dining room for the awful B&B called the White House Hotel. The evening meal was terrible with tough steak half the advertised size with a dribble of tasteless watery sauce. Breakfast was just as bad with greasy eggs, leathery bacon and microwaved sausage. Stay away.
