user reviews of the White Horse Inn, Sharlston Common

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Have been many times and was a favourite - however

Today's visit very disappointing for the following reasons:

The beer quality is poor esp the Black Sheep

The food was definitely not up to scratch - I had roast chicken which was very dry and shriveled up when it arrived - not much meat on it.

The plate had a very large portion of salad which meant only a few chips.

The above reasons tend to indicate that the chef is cutting corners.

There is no way I will ever visit the place again or recommend it as I have done in the past.

Quite difficult to find. Beer good choice and well kept. Not a vast choice of food, standard pub fare but well cooked and presented. Perhaps not the place for a special night out but a good lunchtime stop.

A large, traditional, stone built pub, which was a manor house in a former life. Hidden away between two arterial roads, it is one of those places that feel very rustic, even though it is just a few hundred yards off the beaten track.

It has three rooms, two of which have been refurbished to a high standard. The main lounge, in particular, feels very comfortable with its exposed stone wall and original wooden beams.

Two real ales on this visit: Tetley Bitter- a regular fixture and Wells’ ‘Bombardier’ as the ‘ever changing guest beer’. The ‘Bombardier’ was a decent temperature and well pulled, but unfortunately tasted a little old.

Food looked to feature highly and seemed good value for money. Traditional pub fare and plenty of it seems to be the ethos, judging by the portion sizes. There was also a ‘children’s menu’ and a short, but safe, wine list.

Bar staff were friendly and attentive.

There’s a large beer garden in front of the pub, affording a fine view over towards Emley Moor. The garden also has a play area for small children.

I liked this pub, but if, as I suspect, the guest ales are going down the boring Pedigree / Greene King / Bombardier route, then I would be unlikely to return. Something from a Yorkshire micro? Then yes, definitely.
