We had a large table booking for the fireworks and were looked after both before, during and after the meal. Lovely food and friendly staff

The Halloween event was truly awful! No decorations, no atmosphere, definitely not worth £45 The menu has not been changed all year. When I ordered my meal, it wasn’t available, I went for the pan fried chicken dish which was totally bland. It used to be our go to place but I don’t think we’ll return again

Lovely place but service was slow (3hrs at 4:30pm for a 2 course meal!) and was charged for a large child’s dinner when I requested a small one...child is 2! Food that came out wasn’t as stated on the menu, I had to request the broccoli that was on the menu for my son’s meal, I also had to request the side of mash we ordered. The chocolate brownie that was supposed to come out with toasted marshmallows chocolate sauce and white chocolate chip ice-cream had no sauce a few untoasted marshmallows thrown on the plate with the tiniest dollop of ice-cream I’ve ever seen served with a desert! I’d have complained at the time but with small children it was already well past their bedtime by the time we were finished eating as service was so slow.

Lovely friendly staff. Well done. They made it a great night. Good value. Discount on food for staying at the Holiday Inn. Nothing too much trouble. Good food and choice. Would visit regularly if we lived locally. Good correspondence trying to book a table for a large group for a birthday.

Amazing time celebrating my birthday with you all, really made the experience incredible and everything ran very smoothly! I want to thank jack for everything he did in terms of helping me organise everything and especially my waiter (who I’m afraid I can’t remember their name) for the amazing service he did to! Over all very happy and I’ll probably be back within a couple of weeks, thank you again

The White Horse were amazing to us for my boys birthday party. They could not have accommodated us enough. Thank you so much for a perfect afternoon.

Very much like a "Toby" restaurant apart from not having to order at the bar. Very slow service despite it not being busy.Very noisy too. Not our style of restaurant and would not recommend.

Despite sending through a pre-order, which was actually correct having checked it when I got home, there was a mix up and certain members of the party had to wait for their food to come. A few of the mains were actually cold, and were sent back; I know we were a large party, but I didn't expect the standards that I've come to expect, to drop...our waitress was extremely helpful and patient, and deserved a medal so a big thank you to Beth, but unfortunately I wouldn't return after being made to feel like I'd made the error with the pre-order, when in fact, I hadn't! Everyone still managed to enjoy themselves, so thank you!
