We have visited the White Horse quite a few times. It is a very busy place but they always find us a table even though we haven't booked. Overall very pleasant.

A large family party for Sunday lunch , could not have been better. Great service and probably the best roast beef I’ve had out ever, served with delicious vegetables by very efficient and friendly staff.

The White Horse offers a warm welcome whether you are just dropping by for a drink in the bar or having lunch or dinner in the restaurant. Warm colours, solid woods, sympathetic lighting and friendly faces combine to make the perfect dining & drinking venue. Our food focus is on fresh homemade traditional dishes, some of which are given a modern twist and, wherever possible, sourced from local suppliers. Food is served throughout the day, including sandwiches and light plates and on Sundays we offer roasts all day. A great range of chilled lagers and real cask ales are on offer together with old and new world wines and Champagnes. With private dining, gardens and decking, The White Horse is the natural choice.
