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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fabulous Easter Sunday lunch with family. My third visit to this little gem of a pub. The Sunday roasts are absolutely fantastic, decent portion size and of a quality that puts all the other local rivals to shame. What really makes this place though are...the owners and their staff. Very attentive service and always a little chat with each of their customers throughout the meal service. A family run pub where you’re made to feel part of their extended family during your visit. Save room for their desert menu too 🤤 Thank you to the team for another exceptional meal and visit.More

What a brilliant night! Quite a few of us went to the Drag night, entertainment was amazing, food was tasty, the flow of drinks was good, considering how many people there we never had to wait. This was an amazing night, so might fun, we...laughed so much. Its great that a local country pub did this event, cant wait to go next year! The staff was friendly and did a good job. I dont think anything could of made this a better night! Well done white horse you put on a good night!More

The "chicken Snitzel" is clearly chicken parm. Really think they need a chef that knows their food. Or whoever writes their menu needs to educate themselves

Trying to get home to Hythe via the country lanes as the M20 was shut we were pleased to come accross this pleasant country pub. It was valentines day but early evening so they fitted us in. The welcome and service was friendly. The pub...atmosphere was cosy although we were seated alone in a back room. The Valentines Day menu had good options and we enjoyed our meals. We will return soon to try their full menu which has a lot of choice.More

We came here with Jasper, our Dalmatian and were seated in a very pleasant part of the pub. The pub is very dog friendly and they have extended the seating area for dog companions. My Wife had the beef and I had the Pork Sunday...roast dinners. Both of which were excellent. Superb vegetables and the pork and beef were very good quality. Yorkshire puddings were fresh and warm. Then we went onto deserts. My Wife had the cheesecake and I hade the berry crumble, both of which were excellent. I was sorely tempted to have the bread and butter pudding as well, but that would have been greedy I suppose. I was drinking Harvey's, which went down well. All in all, a very palatable and relaxing Sunday lunch.More
