The White Horse Inn
The White Horse Inn can be found in the lovely village of Boughton-under-Blean and as we stepped inside we were greeted by friendly staff and were immediately made to feel welcome. This charming service, as well as the old beams, open fire and rustic furniture, ensured we had a memorable visit.
A quick scan of the menu showed that the produce used is sourced locally, and the food prepared with the freshest ingredients. To start, my husband chose the hot smoked tian of chargrilled salmon, while I plumped for the warm goat’s cheese salad. Both choices were tasty, generously portioned and beautifully presented, giving us high hopes for the main course. We visited on a Thursday, which is steak night. My husband opted for tuna steak accompanied by Diane sauce, while I couldn’t resist the medium-rare rib-eye served with Port and Stilton sauce. Both steaks were accompanied by perfectly cooked chips, crisp salad and delicious homemade onion rings. For dessert, I indulged in coffee and walnut cake with Irish coffee ice cream, while my husband went for scoops of stem ginger and cherry and cherry brandy ice cream.
Happily, the White Horse offers 13 beautifully appointed en-suite hotel rooms providing an opportunity to turn our truly enjoyable evening into a relaxing overnight stay.
