Pint of beer on a bar

The White Horse Inn

At a glance

Bar menu
Beer festival
Open all year
Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

For a taste of old England, you should seek out this small village and its 400-year-old pub. If you need an excuse, come to ghost-hunt or for the summer beer festival when the White Horse Craft Brewery comes into its own. You will probably meet Pepper, the pub dog, who likes to meet other dogs. Food is sourced from local farms and suppliers – the mixed platter of salami, for example, is made in Dorset and served with home-made bread. Among other options, all of which are priced to please, are home-made pork faggots with mash, fresh vegetables and real gravy.
