The White Horse offers stunning vistas over glorious tidal marshes across to Scolt Head Island, a four-mile long sandbar that's home to a nature reserve rich in birdlife. Reflecting the view, interior colours are muted and natural, with beach-found objects complemented by contemporary artworks. Scrubbed pine tables and high-backed settles in the bar create a welcoming atmosphere, while alfresco dining in the sunken front garden is a popular warm-weather option, perhaps accompanied by a pint of Adnams Ghost Ship. While the bar menu lists such things as tapas boards and superfood salad, the extensive, daily-changing menu in the airy conservatory restaurant (with two AA Rosettes) champions the freshest local seafood, delivered directly to the kitchen by the fishermen and the ‘mussel men’ next door. Typically on the menu, 'Marsh Pig' garlic salami with sea buckthorn, fennel and granola; or baked king scallops with cauliflower, smoked dapple and truffle could precede duo of red poll beef, fondant, shallot, mustard savoy and jus; or sweet potato bastilla. Leave room for lemon tart, goats’ curd mousse and raspberry.
