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.

Four of us enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast at The White Horse. Compared to some other pubs, it offered very good value for money at £16-18 per roast, especially the lamb, which my wife and I had. Portions were generous and service efficient, although it...would have been nice if the extra gravy (which comes as standard) was brought out with the food. The pub was a little lacking in atmosphere and there was a slight chemical smell around the bar/entrance area, but it wouldn’t put us off returning.More

We came in for lunch after a long walk through Knole park. We waited for a few minutes at the bar to order drinks which we still waited so I decided to sit down at a table because I knew we wanted to order food,...my partner stayed at the bar to order our drinks, once had our drinks we asked for menus and was given 2 menus to look at, soon as we got the menus someone came over to ask us what we wanted and we said “we don’t know yet, we are still looking” she said “not a problem I’ll come back in a few mins” okay we thought thank you.. she never came back and we had to go to the bar again to order our food. We waited a while for the food to come it looked lovely, I got the sausage and mash with red cabbage, it was really nice except the mash sort of reminded me of instant mash but it was very nice and a fair price as well 😁 would definitely be coming back but hopefully the service would be a tad betterMore

Even though we are local, I visited the White Horse today with my partner for the first time. And I am so glad we did! What an experience from start to finish! Although I haven’t personally been here previously, my partner had and it seems...that the new owners have done a stunning job turning it around! The outside area is perfectly situated especially on a beautifully sunny day like today. Everything was clean including the glasses. I have had awful experiences with filthy glasses elsewhere but theirs looked brand new! It’s the little things 😉 The girl behind the bar - Jasmine was effortlessly friendly, efficient and great to chat to. Shannon who served us was very welcoming and couldn’t do enough to ensure we were satisfied and had all that we needed without being over bearing. Jess, the owner even popped out a few times to take the time to chat and see how our meal was! They all went above and beyond! The food - we went for their Beef and Lamb Roast and I am only disappointed that I couldn’t try the rest of the menu in one sitting! The food was outstanding, beautifully cooked meat and perfect portion size leaving me happily full to the seams! We will definitely be returning very soon. A perfect little local for families, friends and couples! Drinks and food or drinks on their own. A perfect all rounder! Well done to all involved in making this place what it is. So very glad we stopped by! Cannot wait to visit in the winter when the indoor fires are roaring!More

This lovely, warm, friendly pub exceeded all expectations today! I ate here once before about a year ago and I wasn’t impressed at all, but it’s safe to say that the new owners have 100% turned it around! From the garden being well maintained, the...cleanliness of the bar and restaurant area (a much needed improvement from my last visit) to the buzzy but family oriented atmosphere, it was a great (second) first impression. The bar and serving staff Shannon and Jasmine were at the door as we arrived, with a very friendly welcome and smiles all round. Jess (the owner) also made an effort to come out and chat with us even though she was working hard in the kitchen and then again came out to see how our food was. I could not praise the staff any higher for all of their efforts, attention and professionalism! After being served our drinks, we chose to sit outside on this beautiful day. We went traditional for a Sunday and had the Beef and Lamb Roast.. the meat was beautiful and everything was cooked to perfection including the veg! Amazing portion sizes, super tasty and still enough on the plate to take home at the end! We will 100% be back again to try the rest of the menu! Well done guys! You’ve done an incredible job of turning this pub into a brilliant family friendly eatery! Well worth a visit if you’re passing even just for a drink and a chat with the staff! 🙌🏻More

They say you only get one chance to make a good first impression. A lovely pub in a lovely setting so we were really looking forward it after a walk around Knole House and grounds. We had pre-booked but arrived a little early as we...wanted a drink first. We were greeted or should I say confronted by a young lady referred to by other members of staff and disgruntled customers as 'the girl in the pink trousers'. Before my other half could explain we had a booking but were having a drink first she bluntly stated "your booking is not for another hour" and would not let either of us get a word in. I can only describe her attitude as officious. I appreciate it was busy but the other staff took it in their stride and managed to maintain their professionalism. The food was excellent; we had Sunday roast (Roast beef and a mixed roast) followed by dessert. Homemade roasties, Yorkshires and fresh seasonal vegetables. Portion sizes just right, good choice of quality wine. Our server Sarah unlike that girl on front of house was excellent. Had it not been for our initial welcome or lack of it I would have given 5/5. It hasn't put me off visiting again but we hope we don't encounter pink trouser girl again.More

I’ve not had fish and chips this good in the UK for a very long time if ever. The fish was a generous size, and the chips were perfectly cooked. Our other orders were also good but the fish I thought was exceptional. If I...lived nearer I would certainly be back soon.More

The toilets were disgusting, no soap and toilet paper on the floor! When we asked for salad cream we had to scrape the bottom on the jar. The beer from the pump was 'off'. The chicken pie was stodgy and not good. Its a shame...as it used to be a lovely pub; hardly surprising no-one else was eating. Definitely wouldnt recommend.More

Having been here before one expected an extremely high standard but this occasion exceeded expectations beyond belief. This pub is always fantastic and the staff always go above and beyond no matter what the occasion. On this particular visit Jasmin was extremely attentive and both...myself and my client couldn’t help but be very impressed. She was highly attentive to our needs and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. I have a large meeting planned in the next months and if the service anywhere near as good I will be using this establishment permanently for all future UK meetingsMore

Just the 2 of us for Sunday lunch which started well - contemporary bar area, menu good, staff friendly and attentive. Our roast beef arrived, piled up with good potatoes and roast parsnips ... but, unfortunately totally swimming in lukewarm, thick gravy! Please put this...in a separate jug as the beef was decent but spoilt by the synthetic tasting gravy. Side dish with 3 heaps of colourless, unappetising 2x mashed and 1x overcooked veg! The staff were good but constant chucking of the empty bottles in the dumper bin behind the bar caused quite a noise - totally oblivious to effect on diners! It looked promising but we won't visit again.More

I came here with my girlfriend Jasmine and we had the most delightful evening. It was an off the cuff decision and I am so excited we did. The food was fantastic and our waitress Ella was so friendly and helpful. The food was incredibly...good and unfortunately the chef was too busy to thank. Everyone made so much effort to make us feel welcome. The only thing I would say is that despite the fact the food was amazing the prices were quite steep in comparison to other local pubs. In some cases £5 more per mealMore
