I visited with my family on 3rd January and was so disappointed. Food was absolutely terrible. 3 of us had fish and chips. Fish was dry and tasteless. Batter was soggy and undercooked. Chips were soggy and black as though they had sat for days in water. Mushy peas were so runny you needed a spoon to pick them up...

We visited on Christmas Day for a family lunch. Lovely menu, the cheese soufflé starter was gorgeous and the beef wellington main was delicious. Had kept room for desert and was not disappointed. Really friendly efficient staff. We booked for 1.30pm and it was great that the table was not needed again which left us free to sit and relax...

Our first impressions on driving up to the White Horse Inn were quite misleading. From the outside the building resembles a painted portacabin, so our expectations weren’t high. However, the inside is surprisingly spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff are friendly and helpful and on New Year’s Day, The White Horse was doing a roaring trade with brunch fully booked....

The hotel has a warm and welcoming atmosphere with real wood floors and tasteful soft furnishings. The owner Ewan even serves the huge breakfasts personally and is very knowledgeable about golf and the magnificent nearby Trump links course. The bedroom was very comfortable and warm, and everything in the en suite worked perfectly. The shower in particular was good quality...

Visited the White Horse with my wife for a late lunch on the run-up to Christmas. Ordered from the festive menu and all three courses were interesting and well presented . Good value too. As always, the staff were very friendly and the restaurant cosy and well decorated. Hope to return soon.

I had lunch here one cold Saturday afternoon, albeit just sopu, open sandwiches and a few beers, but they were quite good. The place was quite empty but there was a lovely warm wood burning stove that created a wonderful atmosphere, so we decided to book for dinner that evening. What a mistake!. We were not seated in the restaurant...

Thanks for taking the time to pen the details of your recent visit. It is disappointing that you had 2 contrasting visits in the one day. You were sat in the lounge close to the fire (which was on – but not roaring) as we felt this provided a better atmosphere. We would have been happy if you had wanted...

Room - 1 towel between 2, door difficult to lock required help, one mug between 2, 3 pillows between 2 would expect 2 each. Dinner - gammon steak had a bizarre pickled onions on the side instead of vegetables. Tough and very salty. Not worth £13! Staff had to be reminded to bring our drinks. Totally forgotten. Breakfast - to...

We are disappointed to receive this review but not at all surprised. We were expecting it. Occasionally when dealing with a customer you know you are never going to meet their expectations - whatever they may be. As a business we undoubtedly got a few things wrong, that said, I have a more balanced interpretation of your visit and our...
