“great food- looking forward to a return trip”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Lovely friendly pub- welcomes dogs and kids.

We visited for the first time in ages for a quick meal. The menu was great with many things I wanted to try. I had tandoori chicken on flat bread, which was very tasty. My daughter had an amazing venison burger. Food tasted freshly prepared, portion sizes were perfect and service was efficient, friendly and good, so nice to visit a pub with more adventurous food, can't wait to have a 3 course meal there soon.

“Exceptional food, Great welcome, Lovely people”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Moved to Hinton St. Mary in March 2014. I had no WiFi or broadband. I saw the White Horse advertised Free WiFi, so I popped in to collect a few emails. The welcome was astounding. I was made to feel very welcome as was my German Shepherd who was then spoilt with numerous treats from behind the bar. I have previously owned a pub and am therefore quite critical however, after several fantastic meals (Sunday Lunch is sublime) and always the warm welcome, there is no issue with any of it. I can highly recommend the food, the beer, the hospitality and of course the dog welcome. A superb place to spend a few hours in great company. I have been made to feel very welcome and I thank you all for that.

“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

I have eaten here on two occasions and popped in for a drink on several. The food is fantastic, the service is second to none and the landlord and landlady and lovely. I would recommend The White Horse to anyone, and have in fact recommend it to several! Great job guys! Will be in again soon.

“Just a drink & a snack but great hospitality!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We had a pint at this pretty pub today and sat outside in the sunshine. Lovely pretty and quiet village, the menu looks good (maybe another day). There were bowls of olives, stuffed vine leaves (yum) and bowls with big sqaures of cheeese for customers to help themselves. very generous. Very friendly locals too. Wish I lived closer!

“Fantastic Village Pub best food in the area”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal with my friends. The food is presented beautifully, great size portions and delicious.

The staff were incredibly friendly and the service was great.

It's great to have a pub in Sturminster again where you can go for a good meal. The menu isn't your standard pub food and it's hard to choose what to have. Will be going back again to try the other choices.
