Stopped off here after a walk round Rutland Water. It was very quiet when we arrived at out 5pm on a Thursday but we were greeted very well by the bar staff. The whole place is very nicely decorated and inviting with a ouple of log fires going. We had a few drinks and the homemade pie which was extremely...

My wife and I enjoyed a good lunch here. The staff are friendly and efficient and the place has nice decor and a comfortable ambience. The food was good and fairly priced. My wife felt that the ratio of fish to batter in her fish and chips erred towards too much batter and not enough fish but this was a...

Stayed for two nights over the weekend 17-19 Feb 2017. All the staff we came into contact with were very friendly and welcoming, nice bit of banter with the guy serving dinner on Friday night!

Didn't stay, just ate at this attractive inn. We've driven by for years and always thought it looked inviting (all those tables and benches outside on sunny days) and today we were able to pop in. In February on a sunny Friday it was surprisingly busy. The food was delicious and sensibly priced and served by very pleasant people.

Had a lovely meal tonight, food was excellent and the staff are so friendly and very attentive. The mushroom starter was delicious and the beef and ale pie won't leave you disappointed. Portions are great if you have a big appetite. Great seats next to the log burner, it is just wonderful. Will definitely return.

Called in for lunch and wish we had the opportunity to revisit as the service and food were excellent. There is obviously a talented chef who produces dishes with a difference as well as the traditional ones. Would give it 6 stars if possible.

There were 3 families all meeting up at Rutland Water for a reunion. A friend had booked this place for a meal after our day out and we are so pleased they did. The 11 of us were seated in a open planned dining room. Service was prompt, food delicious and decor lovely. They were really flexible with the children...

I have visited the white horse on many occasions for the fabulous food they serve in their pub/restaurant but have never before stayed there. We booked to stay there on New Years Eve and what a treat it was. The rooms were immaculately clean and every last detail was thought of from complimentary cadburys hot chocolate and China mugs with...

We stopped for lunch on our loop around Rutland Water with our bikes. Food and beer was great and the staff were very supportive to customers in need as our bike lock wouldn't release our bikes therefore Helen the manager arranged for Tony a local to come with a hacksaw to help release our bikes and Helen even gave us...
