After a ridiculous day of getting used to left side driving and roundabouts, we ended up at this oasis of awesomeness. From check in to check out we had an amazing stay which reenergized us for our 3 week road trip. James and Harry were the best bartenders. I recommend their pub (which is frequented by locals) for some good... More

I was excited to see this place when we arrived, and, generally, it was fine. (I had booked it some time before, and had seen a lot of good reviews.) We were shown to our room by a member of staff, and given brief details about breakfast times, etc. Immediately, I felt the room was a little chilly, so checked... More

HOWEVER, we had such a lovely time I would happily stay again. The rooms were cozy , the... More

Nice traditional English foodie type pub, but yet again, the one vegetarian meal on offer leak pie (quiche) comes with a dressed salad (lettuce) and that's it! No chips or potatoes. All the other meat based dishes I see on tables around me are piled high with food. There is an assumption that someone eats vegetarian because they're on a... More

I recently took my family for a meal at this traditional styled pub. Received fantastic service; prompt and very friendly. Superb food, where medium-well done is cooked medium-well done! If in the area, I strongly recommend eating here.

Very warm welcome on arrival, which actually I was expecting having communicated via email a week before. I'd chosen to stay here based on the reply I got from an email enquiry and I'm pleased I did.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White Horse is a quintessential 17th century English coaching inn set on the eastern side of the Cotswolds in the charming village of Duns Tew. With original flagstone floors, beams and real fires. The White Horse has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere making it the perfect place to enjoy a drink or meal with friends. Our south facing terrace is perfect on warm days. Well behaved children and dogs are welcome.The White Horse has greeted travellers for the last three hundred years. Little is known of the early history of this late 17th century hostelry, but there was certainly an Inn here. Inn keepers are recorded here up to the present day, with its own brew-house run by a Maltster, in the early 17th century. The brew-house is now the site of the gents' loo.Towards the end of 1981 The White Horse was remodelled with the addition of a dining room, but it was still a true Inn as there was stabling and fodder for a traveller's horse as well as Bed and Breakfast for the rider. In the last decade of the 17th century the White Horse was again developed to the arrangement seen now, with a new Kitchen, Dining Room and Bar, in a traditional style, and extended bedroom accommodation. ... more   less
