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.

We went there today for lunch. There was a wake going on and all the people there were happy and friendly. They appeared to have a buffet and the food looked excellent. As it was 'fish Friday' we had scampi and chips which was faultless....Clare the landlady was serving at the tables and Lee was behind the bar. Whilst busy, the service was prompt and faultless. Dog friendly too. Brilliant!More

As soon as you walk in you feel really welcome. The interior design is very cosy. I only planned on having a light meal and went for loaded fries. My family went with hunters chicken. The quality and quantity of the meals were absolute value...for money huge portions and so delicious.we then had the cherry and apple crumble which was amazing. We did have a minor hiccup but this did not change our opinion of the service and quality. The staff were extremely helpful and caring. I would definitely recommend and I will definitely come again. My grandfather really enjoyed the Spitfire ale.More

Best Sunday roast, as good as a home cooked one - all fresh ingredients, proper roast potatoes and delicious gravy, Emma was a brilliant waitress and did a tremendous service all by herself.

Popped in on a stormy autumn day to find the pub fairly lively with a fair few diners Limited lunchtime menu but what they do , they do well . A few portions on the smaller side for our appetites but staff charming and service...slow but understandable as the food is clearly cooked fresh to order . Will certainly return when they have a full menuMore

I went to the White Horse pub with my two adult son's for a 'Boys own' dinner I have been there a few times and always found the food very good. I usually go there with about 10 or 12 of our residents group from...the local retirement community within walking distance on an irregular basis. Today was very different. We ordered some drinks and a bottle of wine from the young but very helpful waitress and after a while ordered our meals. Three steaks please, two without mushrooms and one without tomato's (mine) After a while the meals arrived and as I lifted the steak I saw the small group of tomato's on my plate. I spoke the the waitress and explained that I was allergic to tomato's and shouldn't try to eat the meal. The waitress very apologetic took it away and after about 15 minutes a replacement arrived. In the mean time my two son's had finished their meals. We had a beer each as we waited to start, a bottle of wine with the meal and a brandy each after the meal. A very apologetic waitress, but when I spoke to the owner about the meal I was told 'you had a replacement, what more do you want' in a strong voice. - I paid up and left. Promising never to go back and as Secretary of our 100+ residents group I will strongly advise our group to avoid the pub in the future.More

We arrived, a table of 9 at 12.30 as booked, had to wait a while for our food orders to be taken. Starters came out in good time, then we waited. At 2pm I asked where our meals were. if they didn't come out shortly...we would be leaving. No drink service at our table.I felt really sorry for our waitress who was very apologetic for the delay. People had come in after us, had 3 courses and paid their bill and left. We left at about 3.30 after I had had a word with the assistant manager who again was apologetic and said she was unaware of the issues. ( Which I later discovered was not true as she was watching all the time from the window in the door) The food was of a reasonable standard. I did insist on a reduction on our bill which was minimal. A shame really as the pub was not busy, so it would seem that if you have more than 4 in your group don't expect to be served in good time.More

Friends and I went for lunch mid week and were surprised to find it so busy, which, I suppose was a good sign. The young waitress was particularly pleasant, efficient and attentive. The food was good pub food ( we had a fussy eater with...us ) but saying that the food was tasty and presented well, plates hot and we all decided we would certainly book again. We had lots to talk about and we were in no hurry but the service could gave been a bit quicker Probably best to bookMore

I visited for Sunday lunch with a group of 11 cyclists. We had excellent food , and excellent service,in a timely manner, not rushed but not too slow ,nothing was too much bother. Our young waitress worked out the five couples and one single in...our group and prepared separate bills with no problem at all. The only downside I would say was the microphone when announcing meat raffle winners was a bit intrusive but it didn't last too long. I will be back!More
