First time visit for us, had been recommended by husband’s workmates.
From the moment we walked in we were received with a very warm, friendly welcome.
There was plenty of choice, and we chose from the fabulous specials board. We weren’t disappointed! The food was delicious, presented beautifully & piping hot. We made sure we had enough room for a dessert, which again were delicious.
All of the staff were very friendly & attentive, and a big thumbs up to the young lad who served us. He seemed to be new and even though he was a bit nervous he did brilliantly - just wish i’d got his name.
We will definitely be returning

We have eaten at the Whitehouses on several occasions and every visit has been exceptionally good. We rang up to book a table for three people for Sunday lunch and although they were very busy a table was found for us. My daughter has autism and is very funny with food but still they cooked her a steak and ale pie even though it wasn't on the menu. We also ordered a lamb and a steak which both were cooked to perfection.
The restaurant was the busiest I have ever known it but the manager and all the staff worked exceptionally hard. We cannot fault the quality of food or the service from all of the staff and we highly recommend the Whitehouses to everyone.

We have visited the Whitehouses on many occasions and the food is excellent every time! Quality, attention to detail and service you could not fault! The staff keep checking on you and nothing is too much trouble !The gentleman behind the bar is always very pleasant! It can get extremely busy especially on a Saturday evening !, so when people aren't punctual you could understand the manager getting annoyed !

It's a wonderful place don't hesitate to visit !

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
