We were fortunate to be able to eat here without booking. Very convenient from our B&B at Lane Head Farm. Good home cooked food in a pleasant atmosphere with friendly prompt service. A pleasant evening after a full day driving.

Lovely evening meal with nice atmosphere. Cumberland sausage & mash was delicious. Plenty of board games to choose from too. We stayed in nearby Netherdene B&B so very convenient.

Welcomed at the White Horse when let down badly by another establishment in Threlkeld. Ended up eating there four times in the week, really nice people, good food and drink at reasonable prices. Eat here when in Threlkeld area.

Food was really good and the beer was well maintained. I'd liked to have known the steak burger takes 20mins to cook if I had a small gripe, but would definitely come back.

Proper pub atmosphere, people chatting over a pint of real ale or enjoying a meal. The staff were very friendly and chatty if they had time, the pub gets very busy. Had meals there twice, would have been more but tried other place for comparison....More
