This 400-year-old pub is very much the hub of a timeless English village. The White Horse Inn is as dog-friendly as they get – pub dog Pepper is sure to greet you and your canine companions. Food is traditional, good value and sourced from local farms and suppliers whenever possible. Time a visit for the summer beer festival when the White Horse Craft Brewery comes into its own.
