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.

A positive start for this lovely old pub with a nice greeting from both bar staff who showed us through to our table. For assorted reasons, the drinks came in fits and starts due I believe to a barrel needing changing and then another break and they took the order for the food. Without being overly busy it did seem quite a while before the Sunday roasts and a veggie lasagne turned up, which were of a moderate size and generally ok. I think the real problem here was the over eager writer of the menu with reference to the Sunday Roast including three ‘delicious’ in the description of the roast, meats & gravy and finishing with ‘crispy roast potatoes’ The sirloin was quite fatty but ok and accompaniments were all right but ‘delicious’ they were not and none of the roast potatoes could be described as crispy! We may have just been unlucky on the day, but a glance at the other Sunday roasts that were being served up I would say our food was very typical of the fare on offer. At £11.50 it wasn’t too expensive, but I think was over promised and unfortunately left us a little underwhelmed.

My wife her mother and I booked Sunday lunch , after having a pleasant drink there a week ago . The landlady was very friendly and the pub was spotless with a great variety of gin and mixers and beers available. We arrived early, and had a drink before lunch , using the outside seating area . The bartender was very courteous and we were not rushed at all to take our table inside which had our name on it . My wife and I had roast beef, my mother-in-law had a Chicken Tikka masala curry, she asked if the chef could make it spicier when preparing it as she likes hot curry’s, this was not a problem. The meals arrived together and we were very impressed by the tender flavoursome beef, crispy roast potatoes and fresh veg and gravy. The curry was also delicious, the landlady came over to our table twice to ensure that everything was ok and we had what we required, the chef who we found out after the meal was also the landlord,( who can cook ) . We are planning a return visit for a music night soon. We all had a great eating experience and couldn’t fault anything about our visit. As we have previously run pubs we appreciate a good public house when we see one . We would highly recommend this establishment.

We have recently moved to Eaton Bray and have been to the White Horse for the last three Saturdays for dinner. Each time the staff have been friendly and attentive. There are a good selection of interesting meals on the menu as well as a weekly specials list, this week's ham hock was tender and luscious, with a thick gravy, carrot and parsnip mash and tender broccoli stems, fab! There are various lovely puds and you need to come in and work through the list!

Very poor from start to finish. Pub was so quite, two people other than us. Pub speaks for itself. Seriously not one to complain, hate being one of them customers but it was a must. Came in with partner and mum for Sunday roast. Initially staff were cold but thought fair enough. Sunday roast came up, was very cold, meat wasn’t cooked properly, two potatoes, veg was bleak and cauliflower was almost none. Mums parter wanted a vegetarian option, staff were reluctant to even check if there was any. I hate complaining at all but for £11:50, so I asked staff could we at least get some more cauliflower/ potatoes to which staff said, the chef has said “NO”. I decided to go speak to the manager who I would describe as the most arrogant man I have come across in a long time. Initially I asked could we get some more veg to which he said, “they are set portions, you are not getting anymore” he was so arrogant I just asked for a refund after this, “ NO YOUR NOT GETTING A REFUND NOW” I then said, so you won’t refund me, you won’t give me a little bit more food, I then asked could you at least re heat the food, he said. “ bring the plates back then” This is when I said, “why should I have to bring the plates back in?” Only because other customers were inside were about to leave did he decide to re heat the food, he didn’t want to. There was so much anger in this mans face I thought he was going to hit me. I had to eat the food as I had paid for it, it was horrible, I then asked for a receipt to which I was refused as well. Staff were hostile, manager was arrogant, food was horrible, seriously take your money elsewhere, pub looks nice, manager has got bad temper.. Look at the other reviews, the pub was completely empty and this speaks for the reason why.

My daughter has lived in the village for a while & I finally got to visit the pub . Absolutely lovely building and interior / very welcoming, but sadly that’s it . So yes after 40 years in hospitality I may be more critical than some ! Chips were still hard in the middle : mash potatoes were sloppy strange tasting affair . But the real killer was £6.50 for a bowl of Heinz soup , unbaked in colour but rock hard roll , not even an attempt to disguise it with a crouton ! Come on £6.50 is really taking the ….! What made it worse was the waitress just picked up the untouched bowl of soup ! No Oww is there something wrong ! It was when I said I couldn’t / wouldn’t eat it she said she would take off the bill .

The atmosphere was a ghost town. 1pm on a Sunday with hardly anyone in sight. The roast dinner was awful. There was next to no cauliflower cheese, peas were hard, two roast potatoes ( if you can call them that) they were white and not crispy, beef was fatty. Hardly any gravy, which was watery anyway. No veggie option and had to try and cobble something together for the same price. Went to the manager to discuss and ask from some more cauliflower or potatoes and they said it was set portions only. We hadn’t eaten it snd asked for a refund or discount but again nothing but bad attitude. He then proceeded to tell us to bring our plates back to get the food warmed - microwaved!! What kind of service is that? Awful customer service and a horrible experience. Do not go there if you want a roast with a nice atmosphere and customer experience!!

We had seen some very negative reviews about this pub but we liked the menu so decided to give it a go as it was local to us. We were very agreeably surprised as our experience was totally different to what we had read. We were greeted by the friendly landlady and given a pleasant table overlooking the village green. My husband ordered the steak and ale pie which was served with cauliflower cheese stem broccoli carrots and mash which was all delicious. I opted for the chicken salad with garlic bread which was good with huge chunks of chicken. Greedily we order dessert..treacle syrup sponge and the roulade with ice cream..yummy. Not a huge choice but enough to want to return.Especially as service was good and the staff charming. We were very pleased that despite negativity beforehand. It is a cosy little pub which deserves local support in these hard time.

The pub is quite large, once inside, but we were told we could sit with a choice of two tables! The rest of the pub was virtually empty. The tables were very close to a group of three already there. As they were so close it was difficult to sit down . Ridiculous when the rest of the pub was empty. My husband chose fish and chips, which he said was ok, but I chose vegetable lasagna,which was a tiny portion and tasteless. We decided to give the deserts a miss, after the poor lasagna. When we returned home I made myself a sandwich, as I was hungry!! The lady behind the bar, who also served the food, was very attentive, but the food needs a lot of improvement.

Came in for the Saturday “Thai Kitchen” evening for the 2nd time and wanted to leave a review of the great food and service received. Very friendly welcome into the pub, drinks order taken and shown to our table. Food order taken (set menu but were happy to make tweaks at our request). Every single dish on the menu tonight was delicious and all tasted beautifully fresh and authentic. We were given plenty of time between courses (at our request) no rushed feeling that they want you in and out that you sometimes get at restaurants. This is a great little ‘pop-up’ type dining experience and great to be able to get it on your doorstep. We hope you get the support required to continue this.

Visited for Sunday lunch. Have never been before. Pub has a nice village setting. Inside it looks good and is cosy. Staff friendly (didn't encounter the man mentioned in previous reviews). We were informed there was a half hour wait for food, although the place was virtually empty. The food was mediocre. Tomato soup obviously out of a tin. Roasts (chicken and beef) cold and of very low quality, with a small portion of thin beef and chewy chicken. We won't be back which is a pity because it obviously could be good. But it isn't worth the risk. My first thought was that the chef had quit, hence the poor quality of food being and long wait. Perhaps they were just trying to cover in the kitchen. But from previous reviews it's obvious that this has been going on for a while.

We chose the White Horse to celebrate the life of our relative who had lived in Eaton Bray for 60 years. Service, food and refreshments were excellent and commented on by many of our guests. Thank you to Tom and all the staff for helping us through the day.

This is a great old pub (possibly Tudor) is memorable for me because I used to fish at night in the moat around Eaton Bray Castle. Under cover of darkness, the 'White Horse" in my lifetime was a heavy 'grey' which had done service as either a 'plough-puller' of maybe a jousting steed under Henry VIII ? But as we fished for bream and golden tench (a giant goldfish) the White Horse let rip the most outstanding farts that ever caused a fishing umbrella to nearly take off ! To this day.. a great place for friends and family to eat, drink and be merry

Although this is a nice looking pub in a nice area, the owner was rude and impolite to the point of arrogance. Even though I am exempt from wearing a mask due to PTSD, I was told to sit outside and not even allowed to use the toilet. Made me feel like a leper. Disgraceful customer service. The young man behind the bar was pleasant though. I do not recommend spending your money there!

Thought we would go in for lunch as passing. Did not bother with food just ordered a drink. Would never return. The pub and gardens were very run down. Even the beer was warm. Shame as the appearance outside was nice

What company I shared for a Sunday lunch ? David and Maggie - respectively a speed boat designer from the 60's (who rubbed shoulders with Donald Campbell) and the 'first lady' LGV1 instructress in the UK - who told us she had once nearly turned over an "8 legger" tipper with a 'live load'. I had to learn the trade of LGV 1 driving from (former Sgt) Bert French of "Big Wheelers" in Reading whose sweet advice was to "Think of all those Yorkie Bars !" - not to mention the breakfasts at Wally's Cafe on the A41 ? Roast Beef and Yorkshires with cauliflower cheese. Sunday treat with Eddie French's farm and 'The Moat' nearby. The river Ousel; still young and flowing under the road to Northall is where I first tried to catch a fish - where only minnows and bullheads truly lurk. Night fishing as a teenager, friend Keith caught a golden tench that topped the three pound mark whereas all I had to show for the night which was punctuated by the long, sonorous farts of a grazing, grey, cart horse with 'feathers' on its shins. Neil Waller's Dad shot me a fox to disect on Eddie French's farm. I got much learning from the agricultural pest. Histology, tissue staining with Erlich's haematoxylin and light microscopy were the modest ambitions of my late teenage years. Angling (for trout and a chance Salmon on the River Wye near Tintern Abbey) were the passions of my late childhood in the region whose finest waterway was the River Ousel, where at Stoke Hammond - my Dad caught his first pike, which we carried home in high procession, like an alpine wolk in Tuscany.
