From the feisty local scrumpy to the chocolate terrine with pistachio ice cream, this is one lovely pub. Great staff and a winter fire

In Haselbury Plucknett (the first part means Hazel Grove) in rural Somerset, owners Richard and Rebecca have brought culinary panache and first-class hospitality to this traditional pub. Flagstone floors, and, quite possibly, a slumbering dog in front of the open fireplace. There are ales from Teignworthy and Butcombe, and feisty local scrumpy at the bar, and menus that feature pub classics as well as dishes with a Gallic twist. Snack on homemade focaccia; try saltmarsh lamb rump with pomme purée and spiced aubergine, tomato and tapenade sauce, or 38 day-hung Hereford steak; finish with chocolate terrine and pistachio ice cream. Or choose from a great selection of cheeses. A comprehensive wine list accompanies it all, there's a pretty garden with a re-opened well, and super friendly staff.

Guest feedback
"We love The White Horse! We were celebrating a birthday today, so it was great to know that we had such a treasure of a pub/restaurant so close to home. Using first-class local ingredients, the menu is always exciting, varied and interesting. On arrival, we received a lovely welcome from Rebecca and were immediately offered a glass of perfect wine on the comfy sofa before being shown to our table for our delicious 3-course lunch. All in all, it was a totally relaxing and a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours at lunchtime on a very special day!"
