Within the whitewashed walls of this smart and attractive pub in the village of Ramsden Heath is a tempting array of dining options. With its casual bar area and more formal yet light and airy Heath Restaurant, The White Horse aims to accommodate the preferences and requirements of all diners.

The handsome menu clearly describes each dish - my companion and I enjoyed browsing its contents after being welcomed into the elegant and relaxing main restaurant, where contemporary decor and subtle retro additions blend with city chic to great effect. There is an extensive range of starters including homemade ham hock terrine and locally caught prawns, but we opted for moules marinière with wedges of artisan bread - ideal for dipping in the creamy white wine and garlic sauce. We learned that ingredients from the surrounding area are used wherever possible, and while the stylish presentation aims to inspire interest and anticipation, the main emphasis is on wholesome traditional fare. Steak is a house speciality - it comes with a choice of sauces or flavoured butters. My partner chose the sirloin, which arrived on a wooden platter along with grilled cherry vine tomatoes and a bucket of golden chips. The steak was tender and cooked precisely to order. My vegetarian choice of baked Capricorn goat's cheese tart with new potatoes and a serving of pickled beetroot was a deliciously savoury dish, with just the right contrast from the tangy sweetness of the beets.

Here chef's specials, classics, gluten-free dishes, a scrumptious dessert menu and a children's menu are offered. The wine list is hand-selected by qualified sommelier and manager Brian, and is accompanied by a range of real ales. A smart alfresco dining area adds to the appeal of The White Horse - there is also a marquee for large gatherings and a charming children's playground ensuring The White Horse retains its reputation as a family-friendly pub. Private parties and business meetings are easily accommodated and there is a buffet menu that can be tailored to suit individual requirements. This independent, family-run venue has twice been awarded the title of 'Best Family Pub in East Anglia' and the national titles of 'Best Family Pub' and 'Best Creative Outdoor Area'. All accolades are justly deserved
