Hi Karen I'm sorry that you were disturbed by any noise but as you know from staying with us before, we are a pub and you had unfortunately booked the room next to the front door. We had a 30th Birthday celebration so it was particularly busy on that night. If it hasn't put you off, which I hope it... More

Good for families, and dogs, with very friendly and helpful staff. Great spot for walking and cycling. A lovely breakfast was available, with fresh coffee or tea and toast served.We had a room for 3, but it could accommodate 4.

What an awful place. The room and bathroom were filthy, looking out over car park full of rubbish or a grubby smoking area, depending which way you look.

Andrew,firstly you did not stay with us or give us the opportunity to offer you an alternative room. Instead, you removed your car from our car park and then ran into the pub, threw your key at a member of my staff and rudely told her that you were not staying. Oh....and that was after spending over an hour in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The White Horse Inn is a traditional country pub in the heart of the village of Great Barrow, just outside the historic city of Chester.

We have a very small menu Thursday-Sunday, the star being our popular home made stone baked pizzas, however we are always happy to accommodate our room guests and offer them a meal plan should they request it. ... more   less
