one of Kent’s finest traditional pubs. From the outside The White Horse is the
quintessential English pub – dating back to the 16th century – and the interior
is just as authentic. The inn was once a halting house, not distant enough from
Dover for a full stage but convenient for a change of horses. With the forge
conveniently located just next door, both smith and inkeeper prospered as
visitors enjoyed a refreshing pint of Kentish ale while the horses were shoed.
The bar area features a Tudor-period fireplace that makes the pub as cosy as
can be during the winter, as well as beamed ceilings and log burners. There’s
also a bright, stylish dining room with large windows, chic decor and the feel
of a restaurant. The team at The White Horse Inn has worked hard to ensure
that this is a pub for every occasion, whether you want a pint of cask ale or are
planning a celebration. They even
offer special menus for functions,
including hog roasts and barbecues in the garden. The White Horse
Inn also boasts a car park, and behind, the kind of garden that only
Kent can produce.
Visit for Sunday lunch and indulge in top-notch options like the
Kentish roast sirloin with Yorkshire pudding and seasonal veg. The
White Horse Inn is, quite simply, the perfect pub.
