Service although very polite was slow. We needed to ask to place our order and get dessert menus.

We were a large party with small children. We found the service on May 20th very attentive. All the food arrived together and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to all!

A very enjoyable meal in attractive surroundings. The choice of food and wine was excellent. We were staying at the nearby Hospitality Inn Express, which made the White Horse a perfect choice for dinner.

Unfortunately we booked for the day after Chester races which meant there was a limited menu. There were only 5 or 6 main courses to choose from. The food was nice but not amazing and the portions looked smaller than usual. Overall £175 for 6 adults and 1 child seemed a little on the expensive side.

I did enjoy our lunch yesterday catching up with a girl-friend, food was most enjoyable (had the halloumi salad) It was very quiet (on a Monday) but we were not bothered by the staff but they were attentive when needs be. Would definitely return with friends and family.

Terrible time, no lager when we arrived took ages to take our drink order and food Order. Then forgot our starter and came with our main course. It was my birthday so it was very upsetting.

This could be a great family pub but yet again we were let down by the awful service. It wasn’t that busy however it took forever to get a drink, as they did not have enough staff. Very disappointed 😢

Asked several times for a glass of water for my daughter and it never arrived. The staff need to be on the Ball. I have been twice in the last week and both times, there has been something not available on the menu. It has been frustrating.

With regard to service we did not have our coats off when we were asked what we wanted to drink too quick at that point and the the waitress did not know what the fish of the day was. I do realise that is was Easter but there was a large amount of children some left to run around them selves which I know is down to the parents. Toilets were very clean. The food was well presented.

No teaspoons, 2 ploughman's meals were ordered - the pasties were undercooked and sloppy, Quinoa and halloumi salad had very little Quinoa on it. Chip & pin machine VERY grubby.
