“Sunday Munchies”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just had a really nice Sunday afternoon lunch with the fiance in the restaurant. Reserved a table as I expected it to be heaving, it wasn't, though it got busier after 5pm. Bar staff lovely especially the lady with the tattooed forearm. The food was amazingly quick to be served from order being placed, seemed like minutes rather than many minutes that it was served. Roast beef was fine though two roast potatoes did surprise me (not as in they jumped out from behind a doorway surprise) in that only getting two seemed a bit stingy. The parsnips where soggy and not crisp but that's just me being a bit picky to be fair. All in all a good first visit and will certainly be back again to try the lamb next time. Liked the bar area though some of the more obnoxious who clearly loved to sit at it did make it awkward to get to it to get served which for me left a slightly sour taste in my mouth. Its not very welcoming to have to stand between couples trying to place your order for drinks when you feel like your in the middle of other peoples conversations. Clearly they were locals as one or two seemed put out that I was trying to buy drinks at their bar ;-)

But I must say friendly, attentive staff at the bar and restaurant and excellent value for money too. so go along and give it a try.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Having planned a long weekend break with my daughter and parents we arrived at our stunning accomodation to be informed that our host had reserved us a table for dinner in The White Horse Inn. When we arrived at the pub the watresses were happy and smiling and showed us to our table in the resturant part of the pub. Even with the UFEA Cup Finals on in the bar we were able to relax and enjoy our meal. The meals were freshly prepared and hot when served. Portions were just right and we were not rushed to finish eating. We returned there on a couple more occasions were we sat in the bar area. The waitresses again take your order and service is just as good. Good value for money and a full stomach!

“Good food and service spoiled by the noise.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I haven't been in the White Horse since it changed hands so we decided to try it for a Sunday evening meal.
The food and service were spot on and the meal was good value for money.
However, it would have been quieter eating on the runway at Manchester airport. The only table available in the pub area was at top end of the bar. The noisy group of mostly women in the same area had obviously enjoyed a few scoops this Sunday afternoon and were in high spirits. I didn't have a problem this until just before our main courses arrived someone else put music on the jukebox and then asked a waiter to turn the speakers on in this part of the room because she couldn't hear it. I expected him to say that it was deliberately quieter in there for diners but instead he turned them on.
So now there was dance music competing with the loud group who now got even louder.
This combined with the limited vocabulary of one or two, a liking for the f word shall we say, just about topped it off.
I did get up and look for another table in the alcoves but the music was loud in those too.
The management were either used to this or oblivious as they didn't do anything about it.

I appreciate that the noisy lot were regulars and spend a lot of money in there but they've managed to put me off eating in there again and I bet I'm not the only one as there were lots of empty tables as we left.

Hi JohnD663,

Many Thanks for your review, I am glad that you enjoyed your meal and that our service was up to it's usual high standard, however, my sincere apologises that you were disrupted during your visit by a group of our regulars. Last week was a particular sad week as we lost a well loved village character very suddenly. Her family where in the pub reminiscing about old times.

I have sent you a reply directly, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest Regards,

Alex

(Director)
