Reviewed 3 March 2014

We stayed here at the end of January, kept meaning to write my comments but only just got around to it! We loved our visit, my brother has a Fishery at the end of the lane and he recommended it to us. The Owner was very friendly and personable he made us very welcome and we felt at home, we had dinner in the Restaurant which was delicious, all of our meals were prepared well and the Australian Chef was very welcoming also, she was even happy to keep the bar open a little bit longer for us!! (The Ale was kept well also)
The room was lovely and warm and comfortable. I would recommend this Pub to anyone who agrees that the typical Country Pub is a dying breed!! This has it all.
We will be back in the summer.

Popped in here with my friends in the way back from Cornwall and was delighted by this little inn. It had a very welcoming, homely feel and the staff were very friendly. Reasonably priced and the chef makes ice cream on site, even better than Cornish ice cream. Will be going back again.

We stumbled across this little gem during during the period of strong winds in the country which caused our train to terminate at Andover station and with no ither trains running we had to stay in a hotel.

So we stayed at the White Horse and were very delighted that we did stumble across this pub as the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The bedrooms were clean, tidy (most of the pictures on here are outdated as the bedrooms has now been refurbished) and very cosy. We arrived too late to have any meals and were too tierd for drinks. However, we did have an English breakfast in the restuarant area (which has also been refurbished) and it was delicious!

Overall, I would highly recommend this place!

Stopped here for a light lunch on our way to Warminster. The pub is signposted in both directions just before the turn off from the A303. Its a beautiful thatched building tucked right next to the embankment of the A303.

The filled bagettes are terrific and we can highly recommend the 1/2 sandwich/bagette with Soup option. The beer was pretty good too, (Doom Bar was available on the day we visited).

On our return to somerset during a long and wet drive home from Suffolk and feeling hungry we googled to find close pub on the A303. We were delighted to find this lovely warm PUB/B&B. Very cosy with reminders of past times yet very contemporary too. Best of all was the food, no long waiting with friendly service and fantastic food, a fusion of fine dinning home cooked meals. Good choices fabulous quality and shocked at the very reasonable prices. Will definitely visit this rather special find again and if your passing drop in you wont be disappointing and only minuets off the 303!

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
