The White Horse Inn
53 High Street, Bridge, CT4 5LA
Head to the charming village of Bridge, and you’ll find The White Horse Inn, 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.
