There seems to be a plethora of White Horses around this area so just to make it clear, this review is for THELNETHAM White Horse.
This pub has changed hands several times over the last year or two but I think we've now got somebody who can do it properly.
Peter is a fantastic chef and his mother, Veronica, is the main face behind the bar.....very polite and efficient although she was a little scared in the first few weeks, this being their first pub.
For pub food, this has got to be one of the best meals in the area currently. The ales are excellently kept with 4 local ones on. Great to see that something a little more adventurous than Southwold and IPA is being served.....long may it last. There's also a real cider on at all times albeit one of the Weston's range.
The atmosphere was like a friendly, peaceful local should be with a good number of people in, both drinking and eating.
The restaurant is currently quite small however so booking is well advised especially if travelling far. Waitresses are quite young and inexperienced but very polite.....we all started somewhere and I'm sure with Veronica's guidance they'll do well.
My only comment (not a criticism) is that the mackerel with pickles was slightly heavy on the pickles and light on the mackerel. Well recommended however.
This place will be very popular!
Good luck to them both.
