Food excellent !

We would have normally made this a regular visit, but after the way the manager spoke to us and other customers we will not rerturn again (our bill was £226 to bare in mind)we dont mind spending the money to get the experience along with good food.

No way will be returning am sure most people who have visited also feel this way.

The tables were empty on a sat evening which did suprise us, but no wonder though, who wants to be spoken to like the way the manager does, hes disgusting! He obviously doesnt want the custom, maybe he has already made his money.

Such a shame! As chef and other staff do a great job

The food is wonderful.
My husband had Dover sole which is standard but declared it was the best ever.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening- no negatives at all .
One of the best laces to eat within a twenty mile radius .
Thank you White Houses

Another delicious meal at the Whitehouses. Four friends, four different meals, all absolutely superb. All staff so pleasant and attentive ( owners obviously know the importance of good customer service ) Left the Whitehouses four very happy people. Thank you.

We've been to Whitehouses tonight and all four of us had different meals. They were all very, very good.
Lamb so tasty, the slow cooked rib of beef looked fantastic, also the pigeon wellington,(a starter), lambs liver with bubble and squeak, last but not least the three tastes of rabbit.
Nothing was left on our plates. Puddings imaginative and also home cooked , but we where rather full. All the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Thankyou to everyone.
PS Best pint of beer in Retford.

It was the second visit to the whitehouses, where I met friends for sunday lunch. We ordered a bottle of verve cliquot champagne that was just put on the bar with 4glasses not even poured, the guy didn't want to speak and was so rude it was unbelievable! Think it's because I gave him a knock back on my last visit but reading previous reviews it must be his personality! We were sat behind a curtain in a corner of the restaurant awful table, the girls serving were pleasant enough except one young girl who spoke to us dreadfully telling us we had 10 minutes to finish up because it shuts at 6pm. Food was nice enough the bill came to £240 for 4 of us which you don't mind if you enjoy the day. Upon leaving my friend addressed the problem saying the attitude of the owner and the girl was outrageous towards paying customers and that she had left a £7 because she's a decent person but would not be returning which I have to agree with! I then received a text message from the owner saying "do not contact me in any shape or form ever again" which was baffling as we are not friends I'm a paying customer the message should have been an apology for the service and attitude we received!! Think this guy is in the wrong profession and should maybe consider a job on a desert island where he can be as rude as he likes with himself! An awful man
