user reviews of White Horse, Beyton

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

Good honest village pub that is excellent for food. Classic decor, albeit somewhat marred in the bar where the food is served by a ceiling that is painted in a shade that I am reliably informed is called "Suffolk Pink" and is a common colour for house exteriors in the area which can't be changed without permission, the thing is it's makes the room a little too dark and given that the exterior of the pub and all the other walls are in different colours, it could really do with changing. But that is a really minor gripe.
It's a Greene King house, so it's the usual suspects on the beer front, but with the exception of one less than superb pint of Heineken all the drinks were of a very good standard and prices were ok. Food prices are great value, for just over �8 I had a lovely big bit of rainbow trout cooked to perfection with new potatoes and veg and my companions's meals of Lasagne, Toad In The Hole, and Tipsy Lamb Casserole (which I had a quick sample of and can confirm was absolutely delicious) were all of a very high standard.
The public bar is nice and relaxed and more "pubby" but the pool table seemed incongrous in a fairly sedate and chatty environment. Background music was mercifully just that. Bar staff were very polite, quick and helpful to us despite the gripes we heard from another table.
Also worth a look here is the well inside the pub concealed under a grate in the floor of the corridoor that links the two bars and leads in from the entrance. It's quite an odd sensation looking down a long drop under your feet as you walk in.
All in all recommended particularly for food but it might be a little dull for some tastes purely taken as a drinking establishment.

If it's the same crowd ruining (sic) that used to run it my friend, your comments don,t surprise me at all.

Cheap, quality pub grub (excellent fillet steak), but not a drinking pub - no atmosphere in the non-food bar and very hard to get served as one person often is running both bars

Stayed in Beyton last week. Went into The White Horse with my wife. Bar staff was female - not sure if landlady or barmaid - but very frosty reception. Unsmiling, took our order, no please, thank you or anything else. We did notice that she was talking to, and having a drink with regulars in the other bar - maybe we interrupted her conversation? Don't expect to be treated like a long-lost relative, but this kind of attitude does not encourage a return visit - so we didn't! Shame, 'cos the Bateman's XXXB was pretty good.
