“Brilliant pub food.”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Went here for dinner, unfortunately we could not get a table but the staff recommended a nearby restaurant. Her recommendation was spot on and we returned to the White Horse for dinner the following evening. The starters were more than generous if limited. Main course was excellent (I had the duck). Pudding was lovely (creme brûlée with lovely homemade shortbread biscuits). The service was superb including the gent who was on his first day in his new job.
Very friendly pub, attentive staff and excellent pub food. Definitely recommended.

Just returned from a lovely weekend break in beautiful surroundings. Amazing service and helpful friendly staff. The breakfast was one of the nicest we have had anywhere. Will definately look forward to returning in the future.

Stayed there for one night 10/8. A warm welcome and shown to our £95pn room, which was just fine for us and very clean.
Friends joined us for dinner which was typical pub food; Nothing too exciting but no complaints. Only gripe would be is that breakfast is between 8:30 -9:30. When I am away, I like a lie in especially the weekend. High praise for the lovely staff.

3 couples on a sunny weekend - we spent the evening drinking and all had meals. I've come to half expect substandard service and generally poor reception in those places that rely far more on tourism than local trade. Mainly they don't need to impress because most don't go back. And with only 2 pubs in the village they have fairly much a captive trade. However this place is the exception, and we were made to feel welcome by the landlord on a busy evening. The food was excellent and we enjoyed good beer. I look forward to going back.

After several really nice meals at The White Horse and being fairly local to us, we decided to book a meal to celebrate my birthday. When my meal of roast beef and yorkshire pudding arrived I could immediately smell a "cheesy, sickly" smell. When everybody was served I lifted the yorkshire pudding and the smell was obvious to everyone on our table. My husband went to the bar to discretely state that the beef was off on which the waitress an elderly lady (not sure if she was the owner) came and snatched my plate away. After approx 5 mins she came back and told me the chef had said there was nothing wrong with the beef. I was quite embarrassed by this and said that their obviously was. I was then told that she had also tasted the beef and it was fine and reiterated there was nothing wrong with it. We were all shocked into an embarressed silence by this. She reluctantly offered me a choice of something else. I therefore ordered the sausage & mash, thinking this would be a quick alternative as the rest of our party had already been served. Unfortunately it was another 20-30 minutes before my meal arrived by which time everybody else had finished. We were then completely ignored throughout the evening with the waitress pushing past our table several times to attend to other guests.
I received no apology for the rancid meal which was served to me and was made to feel that it was my fault that the beef was inedible and I was lying about it.
What a shame that the waitress was also as unpleasant as the food.

Stayed for two nights at the beginning of June, we were lucky with the weather and had a nice relaxing break. The staff are friendly and helpful creating a welcoming atmosphere, food excellent and the view front the rooms at the front could not be beaten. Rooms are clean and comfortable will certainly be returning.

We stayed three nights here in a superior room at the front of the building. The view from the front is truly beautiful looking out over Rosedale and beyond. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurant all three nights and the food was of very high quality and reasonably priced - the portions were also huge - whoever is in charge of portion control here obviously has a very big appetite! Our room had a very comfortable bed and a separate sitting area with a large television. I would recommend any one thinking of booking to request a front facing room for THAT view! My only grumble would be the curtains (as mentioned by several other reviewers), they were white and flimsy with a white blind behind, as a result the room was filled with daylight just after 4am which made it difficult to sleep. However I would certainly recommend and hope to return again myself in the future.

Room Tip: Request a front facing room, Room 8 has a separate sitting area.
