This village community pub has a traditional bar area with an open log fire and a more contemporary styled restaurant area. We visited as a family and received a warm welcome. Service was excellent and the quality of the food could not be faulted. It is a short distance from Shrewsbury but not on any of the main routes so... More

We stayed at The White Horse Inn for one night and only found it through Laterooms.com but it was well worth the visit. We were made very welcome by the host and his wife and really enjoyed our stay. The meal was delicious made with locally sourced products and our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was way up... More

A straight road out from Shrewsbury brought us to Pulverbatch. On arriving we were surprised by how busy it was on a Thursday night! The landlord/owner greeted us and said there would be a... More

Simply excellent. If you're looking for something a bit different and upmarket compared to the usual boring pub food then you would do well to try The White Horse. The service from the couple owned pub is nothing short of brilliant. The sheer love and care put into the food preparation is clear. Meals are delicious and lovingly arranged. The... More

Visited with friends who had been before. Beautifully cooked 3 course meal. The chicken parfait was gorgeous and the lamb really tasty. Good selection of fresh veg. Rhubarb creme brûlée was to die for. All praises for Richard floyd the chef on very well cooked tasty food.

We were a party of three for Sunday Lunch and were not disappointed. A friendly welcome, followed by a delicious lunch and dessert we are all impressed. Definitely somewhere I would recommend. I'm sure we will return later in the year.
