“Delicious home-made dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I am not a fan of gastro-pubs, and the White Horse is refreshingly unspoilt and un-gastro'd, yet the food was very tasty and obviously cooked from scratch on the premises. It was nice to be surrounded by regular evening drinkers, many with their dogs at their feet, as we waited for our food to arrive. We decided to eat at the White Horse because of the extensive menu, with plenty of non-food options, as one of us is vegetarian. We were glad that we did! It was a nice old-fashioned experience, with a variety of side vegetables included in the price of the main meals. Some of the desserts listed on the blackboard sounded most tempting--such as Bailey's and chocolate cheesecake--but we settled for apple tarts, which were made of puff pastry with an apricot glaze, with a choice of ice-cream, cream or custard. This place doesn't give itself airs but it can justly hold its head up high alongside some of the more expensive eateries in Milford-on-Sea. Another nice thing about the pub was that there was a pleasant hubbub of conversation, and no loud background music. We will definitely revisit the White Horse if we are in Milford-on-Sea again.

“Great Pie Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Went to the White Horse and realised it was Pie night, when you can get 2 pie meals for £12, excellent value, I had chicken & bacon pie and hubby had mince beef and onion, really lovely pastry, generous pieces of chicken in nice white sauce. Good service, and staff friendly, plus dog friendly too, even better, nice garden, good sized car park. Will definitely go again, look forward to trying Sunday Roast, especially if they do Cauliflower cheese and suede & carrot mashed, my favourite. Menu looked really good, all the meals that were being served look good size portions and tasty.

“Amazing value and very tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I often eat here when I am staying in the New Forest and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. If it is on the menu then the slow cooked belly pork in a honey spicy sauce with mashed potatoes babbage swede and carrots is fantastic. The Sunday roasts aare great value I have to say I always have the pork and I wouldn't fault it lovely meat a nice crispy bit of crackling, plenty of apple sauce. Unlike the previous review I had no problem with tthe veg there may not have been a green veg but the cauliflower was nicely cooked not mushy as so many pub veg are. Puddings are good too and the portions generous.

“Sunday Roast”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Just visited the White Horse for a Sunday Roast, with the family. My 3 1/2 year described the food as slop. He wasn't far wrong, the portions are huge, but there was no sign of anything green but masses of cauliflower cheese, mashed swede and carrots, over cooked roasties and meat. It's a real shame as it's a hard to find a good family pub that do a decent roast.
