Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve been coming here for the last ten years: the food remains excellent authentic Thai food for a very good price, with service to match. This is the heart of the village with a great atmosphere. Cannot recommend enough.

This is our favourite “ go to” restaurant for so many reasons. Food is fresh and cooked to order, tasty and delicious. Atmosphere is quiet, tranquil and cosy and service first class. In winter the huge log burner adds a really homely touch. The prices...are so reasonable, food and drinks all fairly priced. Beautifully clean and tables nicely spaced out. Fresh stir fries, massaman, panang, lots of thai seafood and of course red and green Thai curries. The Pad Thai is outstanding . Always go for tempura prawns or salt and pepper squid for starters. Staff are always happy, friendly , and welcoming. Love this place ! Cannot fault it. Oh yes, plenty of parking tooMore

Excellent food, service and quaint setting. Really really good. We had the mixed starter which gave a variety of tastes to try. We then had pad Thai, duck red curry and the sweet and sour chicken. All was very fresh and delicious. Well worth a...trip.More

A group of seven of us turned up for lunch. The welcome was warm, friendly and genuine. A couple of tables were swiftly moved together so that we could all sit as one group. I asked if I might have some Tom Kha Gai soup...(which was not on the lunch menu!) since I love this particular dish. The excellent staff were unfazed by this request and said of course I could have it! When I described this soup to my friends, some of them wanted to try it too. The food arrived very promptly (even the off-menu Tom Kha Gai) and it was all beautifully presented and tasted absolutely delicious. It was also very reasonably priced. All in all, a really good experience and I would recommend this pub to everyone!More

The best food I have had out for ages, fed up of mediocre meals for a lot of money, here you get the complete opposite . Stunning food , tasty and fresh for a reasonable price especially like us you go at lunch time ..... Under £14 for a two course meal or £35 for a feast for 2 . We nearly didn’t go in, as it looked abit shabby from the outside, thought it was closed down but saw a light on that led to a warm welcome , glowing real fire and excellent food and service .More

Another wonderful authentic Thai meal at this cosy pub / restaurant. Delicious tempura prawns and salt and pepper squid to begin, served with dips and salad garnish. Then on to tasty stir fries with coconut rice. Usually go for massaman or panang but loved this...crisp freshly cooked stir fry for a change. Incredibly well priced , staff are lovely, family owned and there is a genuine warm welcome. Timothy Taylor real ale, excellent wine selection and the best log fire you will find anywhere . Can’t rate it highly enough.More

We have been before so knew the food was good. Again we were blown away with the quality. We had the larger lunch meal deal. An amazing two courses plus coffee for just £35 for the pair of us. Wonderful food and fantastic value. Very...much appreciated and we’ll be back :-)More

My daughter and family live in Bristol and my wife and I in Cockfosters. We wanted to meet roughly half way and my son researched the web and suggested we try the White Horse. We are so glad that we did as we enjoyed one...of the tastiest, most satisfying, meals eaten anywhere, with quite deliciously authentic Thai flavour and presentation (the impressive art of carving carrots into the shape of roses!). The owner, his family, and staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Wholeheartedly recommended.More

Aaaah where to begin? This place rocks! From the friendly, super speedy staff to the incredible plethora of flavour from their Thai menu, the White Horse now has a special place in my heart. I ordered the prawn Pengnan accompanied with coconut rice which was...perfectly spiced and instantly transported my to rural Thailand. I would recommend whole heartedly to all my friends, family and companions! It’s fair to say that Oxfordshire is a better place with The White Horse in it.

We have visited this pub/restaurant on many occasions, and had takeaways during lockdown, and without fail have always enjoyed a delicious Thai meal. We opted for pancake rolls for a starter which were very enjoyable, followed by Phad Prig Chicken. This was absolutely delicious as...the food always is here. Quite a cosy, intimate restaurant with about 10 tables, very friendly staffMore

I have reviewed this restaurant several times before and always given it 5 stars for the wonderful Thai food and great service. On this occasion the food was as good as always, Duck Rolls with a sweet dip and a Chicken Massaman curry for my...main. However the service was extremely poor. No problem with the starter, it was the main where the trouble started. I overheard the waitress deliver the food to the next table and thought it was a coincidence they ordered the same as us. We waited and waited and after asking where our meal was the owner explained it had been delivered to the next table. We were given hot plates which got cold and still no food, more hot plates and still no food, as the third hot plates arrived, one of the dishes arrived. I spotted my meal on the bar where the waitress had placed it while she answered the phone, so eventually got up and got it myself. The owner offered us a free drink but it was a very disappointing evening, the worst service I can remember. Nobody asked us if everything was alright with the meal, and nobody said goodbye when we left. I don't know if the staff were new, maybe it was just a bad night.More

Very friendly atmosphere, very nice vibe. We used to live in SE Asia and so we are quite finicky about Thai food. We had the Tom Yum soup, could have been more spicy but we forgot to ask for more spice! It was delicious anyway...the prawns were plump and fresh. Then I had the chef special seafood, generous portions , Full to the brim with seafood with a delicious sauce. My husband had a very tender (extra spice added) duck curry. Then as a added bonus the chef brought out his own chicken curry which is to die for , fragrant with spices and fresh flavour , and even though we were so full , we ate it!More
