Visited with family who live nearby. For somewhere that prides itself on its menu, it was disappointing that the menu had changed in nearly 6 months. King Prawns! - I don't think so.
The Pie of the day had plenty of pastry and little or no chicken.. The deconstructed Banoffie platter, was a small banana, biscuit crumbs(small portion) and a totally new taste, which I didn't like. Will I go back - No. For a busy place, which I think is resting on its laurels, a disappointment, so why do they have muzak playing all the time when its busy?

We have visited The White Horse several times since it opened and never have been disappointed, even when just going in for a lunchtime drink, we still felt welcome although we were not eating, not all pubs are like it these days which is annoying! When we have eaten there the food has been top-notch. Staff we helpful and accommodating. Keep up the good work.

A group of us went to the White Horse to celebrate a friends birthday recently. I cannot praise the place enough. From the minute we got there to leaving, the staff were friendly and attentive to everyones requests. The food was delicious , all eight of us happy with the two courses we had. I would recommend a visit to this little gem of a place in Baston, Lincs.

After an unexpected curtailed camping trip due to the Great British weather. A suggestion was made to get together with friends and children to try out the Local White Horse at Baston.

The pub/ restaurant opened just shy of a year ago after a complete refurbishment.

Both the inside and exterior have been well considered and are welcoming & spotlessly clean.

The pub has a good local reputation, so much so booking a seat is getting to be difficult

The Pub / restaurant holds a monthly themed night, this months was Thai, next month will be Austrian. On these nights they have two menu’s available:

One to suit the kids needs if required (£6 a kid for a 2 courses deal) which comprises of baguette pizzas, sausage and gravy, cheese pasta etc and puddings like home made jelly and ice cream and banana splitz etc. The quality was excellent, with a real hand made feel to it with particular attention to excellent home made real fruit jelly and excellent hand made ice cream.

The themed menu (£10 a head) which included a “thali “of Thai food such as Thai fish cakes, chicken Green Thai curry, Beef Red Thai curry, prawn pad Thai noodles, a Thai soup/broth and steamed rice. Again the quality was excellent.

The food was good value and well made, and I’m scoring it as a 7.5/10 for the following reasons

1) the Red Thai curry tasted a little more like Beef Rendang but was delicious
2) The green Thai curry lacked the heat normally associated with this dish with it and lacked the vibrancy of fresh lemon grass and basil against the zing of fresh lime in the dish
3) the bread and butter pudding (laced with apricots) was good but just lacked that punch of extra flavour, it just needed something else (possibly cinnamon, perhaps brown sugar, lemon zest and an apricot jam to the stick the bread together to add flavour running through it to give it that extra buzz.
4) The portions were smaller than our group where expecting both the adults and the kids both declared this

To give balance to this review, it’s one of the best local meals out we’ve ever had out, I highly recommend it to you here we will definitely be going back, if fact we’d love to give the Sunday Roast a try…. But please shhh keep this one a secret.

Our third visit and we tried the pork belly which was absolutely spot on. The pork stood out among other pork bellies I've tried as it was perfectly executed with just the right balance and really melt in the mouth meat. Think it was even better than our previous meal here. Couldn't resist the puddings and opted for the treacle tart which was spiked with stem ginger- a really good turn on a classic with light and crisp pastry...even more wicked was the accompanying clotted cream ice cream. A truly heavenly dessert. With food like this we'll definitely be back for more.
