The White Horse is local to me so we eat there every other month. I have never been disappointed. I would recommend seafood especially. Priced exactly right for a good plate of quality food. Would recommend booking in advance to sit in the main restaurant as the balcony is a bit isolated from the atmosphere of the pub. If pizza... More

We're long time fans of the White Horse and it's usually pretty good. Though on a recent visit the service and food weren't near usual standard...have there been changes? We'd booked, and on arrival despite our name being found on the booking form, there was a lot of waiting and confusion between the team - we were soon seated, not... More

We planned to go to the Flaming Crust which nestles below the White Horse but unfortunately it was full so they directed us up stairs. I'm glad they did. First class waiting staff, very attentive and took time to chat and make sure the kids were happy. The food was spot on - mussels, goats cheese and beetroot and seafood... More

Very friendly staff but spoiled by terrible singing by 'entertainer,'. Fortunately we were seatedt opposite end of pub. Food was OK. Not an extensive menu. Good for pub grub but marketed, and priced, as something better

I have eaten here several times over years, from bar food to Christmas work functions and I have never once been disappointed. This is a great for a celebration and the staff are very welcoming towards children. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. I just wish it was a bit closer to my home for my convenience.

Visited the pub for lunch recently and as usual it was to a very good standard. Food is always of a high quality and the staff helpful and corteous. Good range of local beers (owned by a craft brewery) is an added bonus. Recommended as a good choice for both lunch and evening meals.

Dropped in here for a birthday lunch treat on a Wednesday Not many other diners. Service was a bit slow but then we weren't in a hurry. Opted for a prawn open sandwich which was delicious and rounded of the meal with cheesecake. Some families arrived with young kids and they were provided with colouring pencils to keep them occupied
