White Horse

Based in the heart of Maplehurst village in West Sussex, The White Horse offers open fires in the winter and a large garden with beautiful countryside views in the summer. We are a freehouse which regularly serves up to 5 real ales, from around the South East, as well as the local Maplehurst cider. Our well-kept ales and traditional country pub style has helped keep us in the Good Beer Guide since 1986. Beth and Simon Johnson have been running the White Horse since 1982, and have always kept to the principle of a friendly pub, serving good beer and classic pub grub. In fact, the homemade chili-con-carne, cooked from Beth’s secret family recipe, has become something of a local phenomenon.

The pub has recently undergone a complete refurbishment, bringing a tired old pub into the 21st century, while restoring many of the Victorian features you would expect to find in a pub of this age.

We have a wide and varied wine selection from around the world, with many available by he glass, together with a good selection of spirits and soft drinks. Our food is a mixture of European and traditional British fare, with daily specials, all home cooked to order and all sourced from local suppliers where possible. At the White Hart, we take great pride in our warm welcoming approach and attentive service, creating a cosy atmosphere for eaters and drinkers alike. Our motto for our customers is “relax, enjoy and let us do the rest”. We are a dog-friendly pub.
