We had a lovely meal thank you. Drinks were a bit slow. Our food came before 2nd round of drinks which were ordered during starters. We were sat near the fire (circular table which was off) and it was SO HOT we were all sweating - needs air con or window to open.

This was our second time returning for a September race day. Last year the atmosphere was brilliant. The place was jam packed and there was entertainment of a solo singer. This year the restaurant seemed really quiet, no entertainment and although we where a large group there seemed to be more staff than customers.... I think having some form of entertainment would have made the meal amazing.

Nothing good to say really. Booked a table for 25 guests for a 30th birthday party. I was asked to get pre orders off all guests which I did so in plenty of time. On arrival we had been given two separate tables which meant we couldnt speak to all guests, the balloons I had provided were in a big tangled mess on one table. The food was served two hours later, the children’s food was served before this, meaning they had finished their food and we’re unsettled and bored whilst the adults ate. The staff had not a clue what was supposed to be served. Two guests didn’t receive meals at all and therefore had to wait even longer for their food. We had to ask for glasses and plates to be taken away as everything was just left to pile up. We were served dessert without any cutlery. And steaks were not cooked to specifications. Just a complete and utter disaster. I don’t think there was one thing thing that actually went correctly! I’d gone to a lot of effort to sort everything and it was completely ruined. Manager gave us 20% off food but to be honest I was told not to book at the white horse because of the terrible service and I should have listened!! Would never recommend and will certainly not be booking again. Very disappointed and left with tears in my eyes.

I had booked a table for 20 on bank holiday Sunday after seeing the advert for the gin and bbq event to be told that the Bbq wasn’t on that day! We managed to get a table outside with it being so sunny which was lovely and the waitress told us we needed to order at the bar. So we went and ordered the food to be told that the starters mains and desserts would all come out together!!? I have no idea why this would happen and I have never been to a restaurant before and been told this. We felt that we couldn’t order starters for this reason and meant that your restaurant lost out. I would look to consider changing this as it just didn’t make sense.when ordering the kids meals and placing the order for dessert again we were told that the ice cream would be served with the starter!! It was 29 degrees and no way would the ice cream have survived until the kids ate their starter and main!! I’m not telling you this for compensation but I felt that you needed to know as your restaurant is losing out on people’s business by having this process in place. Other than that, when we got our food it was lovely and the girls serving us were very polite and courteous.

We’ve visited The White Horse several times over the past 3 years and we’ve had a fantastic experience every time. The food, service and atmosphere has always been sublime. Keep it up!

A really good evening was had, however slightly disappointed by the non availability of several items. Food was also slowish on coming out if the kitchen, however on this occasion it didn’t matter too much as I was catching up with friends. Good price as I was not aware of the kids eat free deal and my reservation requests were provided. We would still recommend this as the ambiance and the food quality was good and hot when arrived.

It was my mums funeral wake. Sam and Gary could not have been more helpful. Thank you to them. The food was excellent everybody commented on how good it was. It has been a very upsetting time but everybody at the White Horse made it much easier for the family. Thank you

I had booked for a baby get together and wasn't really sure what I wanted but everything turned out perfectly. The arrival drinks were a big hit, the lady who was assigned to our table couldn't have done any more to make the afternoon go smoothly. Everyone enjoyed their food, we weren't hurried to leave etc and we could pop decorations up. Will return once baby has arrived!

Hello, We were with you on Sunday for my mums 50th birthday. Your waiter Mitch served us and couldn’t have been more accommodating. My mum is blind and when putting her food/ drinks in front of her he spoke to her to let her know it was there. He was also great with the kids when one of them was being a bit fussy with their food. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks so much for a lovely meal! Sarah Trickett

Just so lovely to go somewhere that children are made to feel so welcome. The lovely little place setting with cutlery for my little girl and staff who clearly like children. Have already booked our next visit and feel like we have a place finally where we can bring our 15 month old regularly without feeling anxious
