Lovely night at this great pub..well, gastropub. Food was excellent and recommended...way above pub grub standard and well worth the money. Fish and chips better than most I had on my fush & chip pilgramage up in Northumberland! Very pleasant service...good bunch of people

Recommended by a friend. The food was delicious. Feather of Beef perfectly cooked. Well-informed but not overly complicated wine list. Apart from the decor- rather too many faux timber beams for my taste- a gourmet experience in deepest Suffolk.

Sunday lunch - we had beef and it was superb. Good menu for lunch, great service and excellent food. Would thoroughly recommend this little, hidden pub. We have had evening meals here before and just as delicious - beautifully cooked. Only suggestion is that there...is no ambient music so it can seem a bit quiet and you feel like everyone in pub can hear your conversation. We just talked quietly and it certainly would not deter a revisit.More

Terrific place. A 16th Century building, decorated well with plenty of character remaining - timbers, exposed brickwork, fireplaces, nooks and crannies etc - all tastefully done. Large parking area, garden and space all around. A handful of rooms available for overnighters which will temp us...in future. We arrived for lunch on an important anniversary and were treated well - attentive staff, friendly and helpful. A peaceful 'edge of village' setting which was a little off the beaten track and required the brown tourist sign to help us find it - but please don't all rush there...we want to keep it for ourselves. Ashley and Tom were excellent - they chatted when we wanted to chat and left us when we wanted to be left - we were treated as royalty - thank you. Landlord and owner Neil was friendly, informative and it was nice to have a few words with him occasionally. A fabulous menu, really tasty food - locally sourced where possible even with current restrictions. Mrs Hobo loved the beef mains, Mr Hobo had to have the local Blythburgh pork and the accompanying ham and black pudding hock with crispy kale was an absolute winner. The frangipane and clafoutis puddings were imperative...compliments to the chef and kitchen. The quality was excellent. We felt safe, the track and trace at entry with sanitiser everywhere. Trays to carry cutlery and reduce contact. Visors and masks, social distancing, tables well spread - we felt comfortable in a comfortable environment. It's 5 Hobo stars for the White Horse, achieved at a canter, we'll be back if you'll have us.More

The food was divine but the ambience was flat. The staff were so serious and some background music would have taken away from the scraping of cutlery on plates.

Food was really good but maybe a bit posh/fine dining for my friend and me. My friend's priority is portion size! Having said that the desserts were yummy. Felt very covid safe and staff were efficient and friendly. Noticed that other reviews say that the...food was reasonably priced, so my friend and I are definitely cheapskates!More

We turned up at the White Horse without a booking - it was fairly busy (within covid restrictions) but we were greeted by Neil, and he accommodated us, explaining we may have a bit of a wait. All I can say is that the food...was well worth waiting for! I had the mushroom ravioli starter which was amazing! Then the bubble and squeak, and my husband had the pork. Both absolutely delicious. The plum desert was also fabulous. We enjoyed it so much we booked again for Saturday evening. Excellent food at reasonable prices in a lovely setting. We also felt very comfortable as Covid safety was taken extremely seriously. Looking forward to our next visit!More

We have just spent three nights at this lovely pub.The area is very picturesque and within easy distance of the coast and other attractions. The food - breakfast and dinner,were excellent. We were made to feel very welcome and look forward to returning. Eileen Todd

We visited on Thurs 27th Aug 2020 for dinner. Friendly welcome and good service (in spite of the constraints of Covid safety guidelines). With regards to food it was a mixed bag - very mixed in some dishes! Our starters were very disappointing (the heritage...tomato salad was small, watery and tasteless, my goat's 'cheesecake' also lacking any flavour with random blobs of something pink on the side and 2 small dry crackers). However, the belly of Blythburgh pork with Dauphinoise potatoes was very good (promised shallot missing from both our plates and there was not a hint of any tarragon in the dish). One of our party ordered a chicken dish that was overloaded with clashing flavours - see website menu for details. The salmon dish was nicely cooked but underwhelming. We didn't order dessert so cannot comment there. Our overall impression is that the White Horse chef seems unable to choose between all the ingredients he/she wants to offer so has thrown them all together in various overladen dishes. Less is definitely more and simpler dishes with fewer good quality ingredients (like the local pork and fish) would be more appealing and accomplished. It is a little overpriced but we appreciate that pubs and restaurants are making up for lost time.More
