Food is fresh, menu is quite diverse for a gastropub. Been here 6 or 7 times. Try having 2 starters instead of a meal!

4 of us ate at the White Horse today for the first time. Made very welcome by the Manager ( Luke ), service was 10/10. Food to die for, recommend the lamb and lasagne. Have to mention Louis, Amy Lois who looked after us ( asked for their names ). Get down there, fabulous place

We stopped off here yesterday and had lunch in the sunshine. We cannot fault the food and service that we received. The one downside and a great disappointment was the ladies toilets! They really need a good clean.

What a place! Amazing!!! Loved the lamb roast (only on Sundays) - melt in your mouth and delectable. My husband had the beef burger - huge, filling and delicious. They have a massive place; indoor seating arrangements as well as outdoor seating at the entrance and the patio. Service is superb and very friendly staff. Strongly recommend- must try; you... More

My colleagues and I were looking for somewhere to eat where we could carry on our business meeting. We were fortunate that we chose The White Horse. The atmosphere was perfect even though it was quite full and we were able to continue our discussions unhindered. The service was good and discreet and the food excellent from a varied menu....

The place was packed, obviously a lot of families treating mums to a meal out. Despite that the food was served without undue delay. The table was cleared after each course by staff who were attentive without rushing anyone to finish. And the food itself was absolutely delicious. The whole experience was first rate.

Near perfect Sunday lunch for two, best lamb I've had for a very long time. Staff are friendly, courteous and efficient and the ambience is spot on. Have been before and will return - best restaurant in Balsall Common.

We ate Sunday Lunch at this lovely pub - very nice service from Luke who booked the table for us. It was the best Sunday lunch we have had for a long time! Lovely staff too. The roast lamb was absolutely delicious with lovely fresh vegetables - Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese - everybody thoroughly enjoyed it! We were off... More

We were seeing friends who were visiting from Spain for their annual visit with one friend being vegan and gluten free. I rang up as I saw that a coeliac menu was available and wondered if a vegan meal could be provided. I was told yes but The White Horse chef went above and beyond with a special menu provided...

Description
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.
