Friendly village pub with good beers in a delightful setting. On our next visit will try the menu. Whepstead has its soul restored!

We went to this lovely pub as recommended by owners of cottage. There were 2 different rooms to choose from, we choose the quieter of the 2 as we had a young puppy with us. Sufficiently far from the bar not to distract puppy. Has starters and main course, food was preportioned that a pudding was simply out of the... More

We had a really lovely lunch on Sunday as a four and returned today for lunch as a two. Lovely welcome and lovely food with lovely staff. The fire was lit in the bar and the entire pub was very busy giving a really friendly feel. There is a very good choice of dishes across a selection of menus catering... More

We have lived in Whepstead for nearly 4 years and before April this year we had only visited the Whitehorse 4 times. Under the previous owners drinking was not welcomed, only dining, so we are thrilled that the new owners, who are working so hard, have welcomed the villagers back. We are regulars now and the pub has a lovely... More

OK everyone out there, if you are thinking of going to The White Horse please think again, we went today and found poorly cooked food a terrible wine list and a very poor dining room which could do with some paint on the walls and ceiling and also with such a miserable day outside if would have been nice to...

Lee S, Owner at White Horse Pub, responded to this review

Hello Giles I am disappointed by your review, it seems that you were not made aware that the dining room was being refurbished and due to the plaster taking 4 days to dry we could not afford to close. So apologies for the ceiling condition. You will be pleased to know that the whole room is fresh and painted now... More

Asked a friend to recommend a good, local pub/restaurant to treat the family and he suggested the White Horse in Whepstead. I can't really fault the place other than the table next to us was a bit noisy and we found it hard to talk amongst ourselves. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food very reasonably priced.... More

Four of us have just visited the White Horse for the first time since the new landlord took over earlier this year. The menu was simple, with lots of specials, and very sensibly priced. We all opted for fish and chips - the cod was fresh and white, skinned, and cooked in a light batter with a little basket of... More

Have eaten here a few times in the past under the previous owner/Landlords and just once in the evening since. Was invited here for lunch to help celebrate a friends birthday on a Sunday . The Pub was quite busy (as it always was on Sundays) with a mixture of Families and adults. Service as always was with a friendly... More

My friend and I have frequently visited The White Horse, whilst Gary and Di were owners and since the change of ownership. We have had good service and good food except for last Sunday when we were kept waiting for an hour and a quarter, eventually the food arrived my friends food was very good my pork meal was mediocre....
