The White Horse Inn

Sitting in the shadow of Dover Castle lies the Cask Marque accredited White Horse Inn. Dating back to 1365, it is Dover’s oldest public house. Today you will find them serving up home cooked food using local suppliers & real ales, lagers, wines and spirits. The main bar decor has a pleasingly eccentric twist whereby successful channel swimmers have come in to sign the walls as a record of their success. An open fire & roof beams further promote the traditional feel of this historic Inn.

A hidden terrace garden sits to the rear with the spectacular backdrop of the ruins of St James Church which overlooks this sun trap garden. The perfect place to sip one of their extensive range of extravagant gins. “Excellent” Trip Advisor recommendations ensure a continued stream of hungry & thirsty visitors to enjoy this historic grade 2 listed public house.
