About the Pub

The White Horse is a cosy and traditional pub that has retained many of its original features and provides three characterful trading areas; one bar servery that is well positioned to serve all areas of the pub. Within the bar there is seating for around 30 covers and a beautiful old range and exposed timber beams create a cosy atmosphere, especially during the winter months. A slightly separate snug provides room for an additional 15 covers and a dedicated dining area is situated to the rear of the building accommodating a further 10 covers. The restaurant is serviced from a good-sized catering kitchen where there is a full range of commercial equipment. Externally the pub boasts a large attractive beer garden, an area of the business which can be further developed to maximise trade. Already benefitting from a loyal and regular local trade, the business also offers the potential to become an outstanding food destination. Stonegate Pub Partners are now looking for a new publican with catering experience who can drive the food operation further in order to grow the customer base.
