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.

Nice traditional pub for Sunday lunch My partner booked this for a birthday treat for 3 people. The meal was generally ok but the sirloin roast of beef which two of us ate was terrible, chewy, stringy and 50% fat We highlighted at the end...of the meal and were given £7 off the bill. Tbh given two meals were largely untouched I’d have expected more of a gesture. Timothy Taylor on draft was nice and the service was friendly. Maybe need a new supplier for the meat though!!More

We class this as our local as it’s usually very good but today was our 2nd poor quality, poor potion size and poor value for money on our food. Had the cheese burger gluten free the burger was over cooked, the bun was hard I...had to use a knife n folk to eat it the chips looked like some of the scraps from the bottom of the chip basket, and small portions. My husband had the White Horse burger his burger was over cooked and dry.More

Have just had lunch here on Easter Sunday with my family. We had a table booked under the name of Helen at 1:00. From the moment we walked in, we were met with exceptional service. The staff were welcoming and attentive. Nothing was rushed, and...check backs were made. Starters came out in reasonable time, as did the mains and desserts. There was a lot of laughs between ourselves and the waitresses. I would like to mention HOLLY who was very professional in the service she gave, and mentioning to her that I work in hospitality. I also told her, that I would employ her immediately if she were to come to the Lake District where I work. She is an asset to your business. I don't see my family that often nowadays, but will certainly return next time I am in the area Iain.More

Really enjoyed the food and quality of the food. However the service really let this place down. Took over an hour for food to come and half an hour to be served. Staff chucked menus in a pile on table and took ages to clear...plates, despite restaurant being quiet. They seemed more interested in talking to each other or going on their phones than the service. It’s a shame as the food was very good but it’s put us off returning.More

Visited today for an unplanned lunch. The welcome was pleasant enough, with the young man showing us to a table promptly and taking a drinks order. Table had not been cleaned and was not set for dining. Service was fast. The starters - mushrooms and...squid - were both tasteless. Even the accompanying salad had no taste, which is pretty hard to get wrong. Ingredients appeared cheap and long stored. The mains. Sausage and mash was of the sort one would expect in a cheap canteen. The lamb roast was entirely inedible, tasting like a TV dinner. Utterly awful food. Service throughout was muddled, with dishes arriving without cutlery and staff seeming confused when setting the table. This was the first time we had visited here for lunch and won’t return. The place was busy, but goodness knows why. The pub appears to be run entirely by young staff, with no owner / manager present. Very disappointing. The pub is in a fantastic location, but totally let down by cheap, tasteless food.More

Amazing food, much better than any pub food that I’ve had in a long while. Bistro pub food at its best. Staff were very friendly and accommodating for my food allergy. Emily was friendly and courteous, and couldn’t do any more for me. If you’re...in the area, I’d recommend that you pop in.More

After almost a 12 month absence, we returned today to The White Horse with fairly low expectations. We were however pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, the quality of the food very good and the staff chatty and friendly, Our meals arrived quickly, well cooked...and hot, portions were plentiful. We enjoyed chatting to Tom the supervisor and his colleague, who delivered efficient service with a smile: they are a credit to the business. We will definitely be returning in the future if these standard are maintained .More

Visited 28/12. Went for a family dinner as it used to be a nice pub. Pub was very quiet, only 4/5 other tables, yet the service was incredibly slow. It took an hour for starters to come out, followed by another hours wait for mains....When the mains arrived the Cajun chicken was so overcooked it was inedible. Rock hard chicken. Burnt chips too. The wait would have been fine if the food was actually nice. Impossible to get drinks, the 2 employees ignored tables, instead choosing to stand behind the bar and talk. We were seated close to the bar and could hear one (blonde boy - appeared to be in charge) talking about customers at different tables in a disrespectful manner. Same person tutted and rolled his eyes at us when we tried to get his attention for drinks/service. Does not give the pub a good look or atmosphere when the staff behave in this way. Very disappointed as it used to be a nice pub to visit.More

Great pub food, with lots of choices on the menu. Generous portion sizes too and attractively presented. Would highly recommend and look forward to going back to sample some different items on the menu. Would recommend the breaded brie starter, pie and chicken burger options....Sea bass and scampi also went down well. The cheesecake made for a great finish to the meal.More

I have been coming to this pub for many years and never experienced a poor meal. However 28/12/2023 evening meal changed all that. Booking on line was challenging, missing was the listed breaded brie in the fixed menu. Took a phone call to resolve and...IT were blamed. Editing changes was impossible and again a phone call to resolve and IT were to blame. Failed to answer email. 6 of us attended, 5 of us knew the pub and the good food. Steak were well done when asked for medium rare. Prawn cocktail actually lacked the prawns, roast potatoes were dry, burnt and suspected of being re-heated. Cheese was dry and leathery, chips fried to crispy sticks of nothing (likely re-heated) salad limp as left under a heat lamp. 40 to 50 minutes between serving as only two members of staff (very polite) to run the bar and serve the food. 32 customers in the pub at our sitting.More

We've visited this lovely venue in the Beds countryside several times in the summer but never dined. Having booked a table on the evening of Wednesday 1st November, we were given a warm, friendly welcome by Tom, who was front of house. Despite having several...other covers to attend to, he found time to provide us with details of the different courses on offer from a varied menu. My wife chose the hummus starter and seafood linguine. I selected the duck starter and, having been advised by Tom that the linguine can at times be spicy, I opted for the chicken and leek pie. Our starters were hot and delicious, but nothing prepared us for the main course. Again, the food was very well cooked, presented well and hot. Initially, the large individual pie appeared heavy in the pastry department. However, cutting into it, the pastry was light, perfectly cooked and the filling crammed predominately with chicken. My wife's seafood linguine had plenty of seafood and was temperature hot with just the right amount of spice. When we enquired, the majority of their products are sourced locally, and staff have a say in the menu and trialling / tasting of new dishes. Another Tom, who was responsible for creating, cooking, and preparing our food was personally thanked. I can say in all honesty the chicken and leak pie I was presented with that night was the best I've ever tasted. A very well done to both Tom's who made our evening a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you again. Due to the popularity of this venue, especially at weekends, pre booking via their easy to use online booking system is advisable. Enjoy, you won't be disappointed.More
