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.

Fantastic evening from start to finish. Staff were welcoming, friendly and very efficient! All meals ordered from starters to mains were delicious and well presented. It was a special occasion and staff accommodated this so well. We will definitely be returning!

Last night, we went to the White Horse at Misson, near Bawtry - one of our favourite pub restaurants in the area. We all chose prawn and scallop St Jacques to begin. Bryan had sea bass with Mediterranean vegetables for his main course, and the...rest of us chose slow cooked lamb served with mixed green vegetables, dauphinois potatoes and chips. Some of us even found room for Bakewell tart afterwards! There’s always a warm welcome and a great meal at this lovely restaurant!! Many thanks Michael, Elaine and all your hard working staff xxMore

We were here just over a year ago and really enjoyed it - so much so that we returned with visitors very shortly afterwards, booking on their answerphone, only to find the restaurant was closed as owners on holiday. Nothing on the website to indicate...this, and no return phone call to indicate it, so a wasted 1-hour round trip... We came yesterday with same two friends as originally and everything seemed good - good wine choice at bar, Elaine took orders and explained everything. One of our party had allergy/intolerance to onion, garlic and chilli. I really don't like onion, but it doesn't affect me. All was explained, removal of offending items discussed and an appropriate selection of meals ordered. On almost completing the prawn cocktails which three of us had, we noticed what we thought were red onion pieces at the base. We queried it, waitress apologised - we rejected replacement as we'd eaten virtually all of it. Elaine came over, apologised that she hadn't made the onion issue clear to the kitchen (and who puts onion in prawn cocktail anywhere?!). She rather unhelpfully offered a dose of Gaviscon to my friend. We accepted this as one of those things... Main course came, and both I and my onion-intolerant friend had fish - now garnished with a very large decorous spring onion! Apologies offered, including taking meal away and redoing, but fortunately it was easy to put the spring onion to one side. Slow-cooked lamb shoulder was excellent; fish OK (lemon sole was very thin - I'd have been better having their standard fish and chips, also far cheaper!) Scallops starter excellent, prawn cocktails (apart from the onion) was so-so - nothing special. A few chunkier large prawns would have been nice. Neither comment nor apology offered when we went to pay, and (so far as we know) nothing deducted from the final bill of £183. No offer of a complimentary coffee or dessert for their error with the onions... Oh, and their menu on their website is woefully out of date - don't rely on the prices there; although most of the dishes remain in place, costs have gone up quite considerably. We were told to rely on the Facebook page for their current menu - but when I checked when we got home, there wasn't one there... Sorry, Michael and Elaine - you really must do better. It's a shame, as it's a nice place and nice people - but there are plenty of other good restaurants within a half-hour drive of us. Final moan? Why don't owners (here and elsewhere) respond to Tripadviser reviews? Acknowledge when you've taken time to write a good review, and explain/apologise when something has gone wrong? I like to think my reviews are as objective as possible, and your customers are the cheapest form of management consultancy...More

This was our first visit but we will certainly be back again soon. A very warm welcome on arrival set the scene for our visit. We had booked for Sunday lunch and we were very pleased. Excellent and plentiful food, friendly service from all the...staff and excellent value too. A really good range and able to choose from the Sunday lunch menu or the main menu or switch between the two. Highly recommend you visit.More

The Sunday roast is excellent - beautifully cooked meat with a selection of freshly-cooked vegetables, roast and mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and gravy. It never fails to please. ❤️.

Not been here for a couple of years. The place seems to be as we remembered ( very traditional decor and building ). The menu is quite extensive and we opted for the halibut `special` which was very good, if possibly a bit rich for...some. A good selection of beers and wine was offered, so overall an enjoyable experience.More

Absolutely stunning, as always. My husband and I haven’t had chance to go with covid but we came back tonight and absolutely blown away. The service is second to non, the personal approach from the chef/owner is something else. Outstanding. And the food tonight was...genuinely the best meal, we have ever had, at ANY restaurant- ever.

Came here with friends on their recommendation - but their last visit was 10 years ago! However, not at all disappointed. Easy parking in their car park or on the road outside, and bit of a classic old village 'mind your head' hostelry! On arrival...we were invited to sit in a comfortable area with our drinks, and were given menus; shortly after, chef (and co-owner) Michael came out to help us with our choices, answer questions, and ensure that any preferences or hates could be accommodated - he shouldn't have asked, as one of our party disliked onions and garlic, was gluten intolerant, and had a few other issues! But Michael assured us that as everything was freshly prepared he could easily tweak anything and leave out any troublesome ingredients. We had prawn cocktails and a bowl of mussels: mussels good, prawn cocktail was sizeable but average - maybe larger prawns, cucumber chunks, would have added to it. For mains we had their shoulder of lamb, halibut, swordfish and monkfish. Lamb was beautifully soft (as their menu says, 'no need for a knife!') but a tickle of fat remained even after the lengthy earlier slow cooking. Fish dishes were all excellent, as was the selection of fries, dauphinoise potatoes, veg and salad to accompany the meals. Sauces were willingly provided in quantities we requested... Too full for desserts, none of which massively appealed; maybe next time we'll forgo starters and have something at the end. Great service throughout, and really nice to see Michael before, during and after service, checking all was OK. Individual dishes certainly aren't expensive, but we managed to have a bill of around £160 for four, including a bottle of wine and other drinks. Elaine was behind the bar, and advised on choices of wine and stayed for a pleasant chat as we finished our meal. I gather they have been here for around 15 years, so they clearly know their stuff - you won't be disappointed! Check their website for a sample menu; fish dishes, understandably, tend to flex depending on availability so ring ahead if there's something you are desperate to have on the menu or to find the current day's offering. I look forward to trying their Sunday roast.More
