Booked the 'round table' in advance as there is only one, Just means you can chat to everyone instead of jus the one next to you, Meal was good as always. Friendly staff too. Just one complaint (not hotel fault) party of 10 or so on another table were really noisy, so load and shouting that we could not hear...

We stayed at The White Horse Inn, Stoke Ash last weekend to take advantage of their 'Sunday Sleepover' offer. The inn is probably several hundred years old but has been beautifully renovated and extended. It's close to Thornham Walks - a lovely area of woodland open to the public (there's a good café near the entrance). Our double room was...

We only stayed one night, but what an excellent choice we made. Our room was large and very comfortable with little extras not expected for the great price we paid, tissues, bottles of water etc. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food and service we could not fault. The staff and manager were attentive and focused, well done...

My partner and I decided to break the trip to Norwich and avoid the rush-hour, so we pulled in here quite by chance. Boy were we lucky..!! The food was marvellous. Haggis scotch egg was knockout and the sirloin steak the best I have had this year. Well done guys it was top class. Mrs G had the Steak &...

We ate this evening for my dad's birthday here as they used to visit frequently, and I have visited 5 or 6 times this year myself. The service we received from the manager was cold and fake, coming across even possibly as arrogant. Our order was taken effeciently and catered lovely for the children, so started fine. Starters didn't come...

I am sorry to read this review. I agree 20 minutes was a long wait for starters to arrive. I am enormously embarrassed that cold and unsatisfactory food was served to your table. Especially as this was a celebration meal. We seem to have slipped up on a basic here. I would like to apologies unreservedly. I am going to...

Excellent facilities, very comfy room, food delicious! Staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely atmosphere. Considering it's on the main road it is extremely quiet. Very good value for money. Very close to country walks, market towns and attractions.

Had to leave the dog at home which was disappointing. Visited at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. Great first impressions, pristine, very nice ambience. No music which I prefer. Dark wood floors and furniture, crisp, pale grey decor yet a cosy, traditional feel with much character. Very relaxing place to eat. Extensive, interesting menu, all the favourites plus many inspired...

Thank you for writing! I am sorry that we don't allow dogs. We feel that there is allays a conflict of interest with food hygiene and animals on the premises. Then there is different peoples interpretations about what constitutes a small well behaved pooch and what under the table is! We decided it was simpler to uphold a blanket ban...

We booked a Sunday lunch at this Inn en route elsewhere. The turkey roast was no longer available. The chef kindly agreed to do chicken, however, the waitress said it would come with the bacon and stuffing and it did not. The gravy boat requested, and agreed to, did not arrive either. The cauliflower was inedible as it was rock...

Thanks for writing. We plan to be anything but bog standard! I can see that there was a number of slip ups here. We have spoken to a number of staff and refocused in some key areas. Its always hard to know how much roast meats to stock in order to maintain freshness and avoid over heating. However the turkey...

Had an evening meal here. The menu had a vast variety of choices both vegetarian and meat lovers. The service was good, unfortunately the restaurant was busy and only 2 members of staff on duty, however this did not distract them from providing an above average service. The food was excellently cooked and arrived at the table hot and well...
