Blackthorn _ left this review about White Horse

A surprisingly large pub, both inside and out, this was very popular on a recent early Tuesday evening visit, with little in the way of standing space at the bar and plenty of other punters milling around. Oddly though, the clientele was almost exclusively male. Initially I thought it was perhaps one of those pubs where people tend to stop for a pint after work, but as most of them were still there at 7:30, I’m not sure that is actually the case.

The pub is divided in to three with a large central bar along the front and smaller rooms off to each side. Decor is similar throughout with a mixture of cream plasterwork, wood panelling, red burgundy paintwork and some exposed stone walling. Carpets covers the floor with the exception of a few tiles around the bar. A small TV was in an alcove between the main bar and the smaller room to the left, although this was not in use, whilst a larger plasma was on at the end of the bar. The small bar to the left had a stone fire-place and a wood burning stove, and whilst this was not lit on this occasion, a pile of nearby logs suggested that it is more than just a decorative feature. Outside was a good sized beer garden and patio, complete with various awnings, heaters and fairly lights.

F1 memorabilia features prominently as might be expected given the pub’s proximity to the circuit and besides various pictures on the wall, these included a large aerial photograph and a glass display case housing a collection of components such as a brake pedal, brake discs and a shock absorber. There were even some racing related articles in the gents to read.

The menu offered a good selection of “pub grub” dishes such as Pie of the day, Ham egg & chips, Fish & Chips, Chilli Con Carne and several burgers, jackets and various sizes of gammon or rump steaks. There was also a specials board listing another half dozen or so dishes. Most of the mains were priced in the £8 - £10 range, and I found my Sea Food Paella to be a pleasant enough dish, even if it could have done with being a bit tastier.

Beers on tap were all from the Everard’s stable with their Tiger, Beacon and the seasonal Pumpkin Ale. Ciders were Strongbow and Weston’s Traditional Scrumpy.
