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.
