“Best food we have eaten for ages!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

So delighted to have discovered this gem of a restaurant! Everything about it is a pleasure; the welcoming staff, the ambiance but best of all Aussie Chef Norelle's delicious cuisine. It is rare that we score food 5/5. If you want to read more of our experience go to Ladies who Lunch in Hampshire, we gave The White Horse a Gold Award last December, very well deserved.

My wife and I popped in here for a quick bar supper and both ordered steak pie. We both thought it was one of the best we have ever had, absolutely packed with meat and absolutely delicious.
If we are being picky we would have liked a little bit of veg on the side, but I guess we could have ordered it separately.

We also shared the chilli squid as a first course which was also delicious

Have eaten here on numerous occasions. The Christmas dinner was fantastic. My family and I were very warmly welcomed shown to our table and given a lovely glass of champagne. The food was excellent and so much of it! The waiting staff so polite they couldn't do enough for us.
Absolutely fantastic Christmas dinner.
Well worth another visit soon.
Many thanks to Norelle and staff.

Thoroughly enjoyed a family get together on Sunday 8th December. Very welcoming bar area with fire and comfy sofas to sit and enjoy a drink and a relax before eating. Adults had the Roast Beef and Roast lamb lunch, granddaughter the fish and chips. The roast dinners were superb, beautifully cooked meat, fantastic roast potatoes and vegetables - really good sized portions too. There was a selection of bread and butter on the table along with a bottle of tap water - a nice touch! Granddaughter enjoyed her fish and chips. Puddings were a delight, homemade with HUGE selection of ice creams to suit all tastes! Service was attentive - all in all highly recommended!

Room Tip: Didn't stay over, so cannot comment on the rooms!

Stayed here on a business trip. The traditional low beams and solid fuel fire set the ambience from the start. Then there's the food. I had the T bone steak which is usually quite difficult to find in most restaurants which was absolutely fantastic. For breakfast, they will cook whatever you want (within reason). Don't let it proximity to the A303 put you off, there was very little traffic noise, although we did have a room at the other end of the building. Staff brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate staying here again if I'm in the area

Room Tip: room away from the A303

I have eaten at here on numerous occasions and it never fails to impress. It has improved even more in the last few months, not sure if this is due to new management but the service is friendlier- the food just as good. You cant go wrong. If I ever have "out of town" guests I will always take them here to save the embarrassment of a bad meal. I know they will deliver every time. great wholesome pub food at a reasonable price.

I know very little about The White Horse Inn which sounds like a poor point to start from when writing a review ! What I can say, however, is that today was my third visit whilst travelling between Sussex and Somerset, a trip I take four or five times a year. It appears to be a family run business and the attention and service I received was very good. I was also very impressed to see that when another customer arrived with dietary problems the staff quickly brought the chef out to discuss his issues with him and give advice which ended with the chef slightly amending one of her dishes to suit the customers needs. All of this for someone who, like me, was not eating in their lovely restaurant section but just having a "bar meal". Turning to my own lunch I am delighted to say that I enjoyed a beautifully prepared and presented meal of Belly Pork that met the consistently high standard that I had experienced on my previous two visits. I will continue to make this charming venue my chosen port of call when I am passing their way.
