The White Horse


Welcome to the White Horse monthly blog. We will be sharing everything we've been up to throughout the month and give you a heads up with any future events.  

Well, what a busy month… It started with the much anticipated summer menu launch and the 2 course for £10 lunch menu. Our lunch menu is also now available on a Saturday.  Feed back has been phenomenal, we are so pleased you are loving it. Please keep us informed with your favourite dishes and review us on Facebook www.facebook.com/Horsebalmedie or send us a pic on Instagram @horsebalmedie 



We invited all the lovely ladies to come and enjoy an afternoon of cocktails and canapés and what we lacked in numbers they definitely made up in personality, what an afternoon, at one point the Ladies had the whole lounge singing! Thank you for making our event so special. Along side this we had a raffle to raise money for breast cancer uk, local small businesses in Balmedie rallied together and very generously donated a myriad of gifts which raised £270 for our charity . Thank you all so much. 

 Keep an eye out for future events on our Facebook page. 

It was Father's Day on the 19th, did  you come for dinner? What a spread the chefs put on for your dads, enough to please any mans stomach we are sure!
