Was visiting Ardmore last weekend. Wanted to dine elsewhere but it wasn't to be. Glad in hindsight as the food and service here was excellent despite it being very busy.

Visited recently with friends, the table was booked well in advance but we still had a 40 minute wait for our table which is unacceptable. The food was nice not out of this world or 5 star just nice. The restaurant was busy when we visited and the noise levels made conversation almost impossible. Overall an average experience with above... More

Have been to White Horses several times over the years. Food always excellent. Pity can't say same about staff. It costs nothing to smile & I can only take it that most of the staff, including one of the owners hates the job & meeting people. It's a shame as it does take from the experience of going out with... More

We had seafood chower - delicious, with the most gorgeous brown bread, and... More

We... More

Went to Ardmore today with my friend. This restaurant was recommended by a friend, so with antisapation and looking forward to a lovely meal, we arrived at lunch time only to be greeted by a very rude member of staff with red hair. We asked her for a table for two, we were asked if we had a reservation, but... More

Beautiful meal from start to finish. We got the fillet steak and the vegetarian aubergine both of which were excellent. The highlight was the fillet steak which was melt in your mouth. Our desserts were also great and really liked the idea of going up to the counter to pick. Will definitely be back. 5 Stars.

When visiting Ardmore most will head up to the Cliff House, and the views from their terrace are quite lovely, but for those in the know it has to be Whitehorses. We visited in October with friends on what was a gorgeous afternoon of sunshine, so nice in fact that we ate al fresco in their small courtyard to the... More

We checked into the nearby Cliff House Hotel for a few days around New Years Eve and were looking for a restaurant outside the hotel for dinner the first night. They sent our group of six to Whitehorses, an easy walk from the hotel. We arrived ahead of our reservation and were shown to their garden area (which would be... More
