This family-friendly pub dates back at least 160 years and is run by experienced operator Sarah Sweeney. The White Horse has achieved a solid reputation for its pub food, using the freshest and finest local produce to create a daily menu that typically includes burgers, pies, steaks and other daily specials, all washed down with pints of Abbot Ale or Aspall cider.
