Reviews: The White Horse in the Press

Read what’s been said about The White Horse in the Press…

Riddle Magazine, Autumn 2017

“Authentically British Dishes are created by head chef Andy Rogers and made using only the freshest local ingredients. A welcoming atmosphere and an honest ‘field to fork’ menu has earned The White Horse a reputation as a classic country Inn.”

The Sunday Telegraph, December 2017

The Sunday Telegraph’s 30 cold-weather hot spots

“The White Horse’s beautiful Sussex downland provides a backcloth to this very English inn. Long, low and whitewashed, it dates from 1768 and was once a staging post; now it’s the perfect place for foodies and wine buffs to be fed and watered. The relaxing timbered bar and dining room combine contemporary-smart with traditional charm: blazing wood burning, heritage hues, fat candles on scrubbed tables, rugs on upholstered benches. A secluded courtyard and spacious garden rooms blend rustic-chic with modern design. Stunning downland rambles radiate from the front door.”

The kitchen serves up dishes made from fresh local produce – think smoked trout, game pie and ham hock terrine – and alongside quality ales they have an impressive wine list, and even a martini menu.”

The Guardian, ’20 of the best pubs with rooms in the UK’, September 2018

“The “forest to fork” menu and country-chic aesthetic is the draw in this award-winning gastro-pub at the foot of the South Downs. This coaching inn has been transformed into a luxe destination pub with a mirrored dining room, statement art and fur-lined booths. Expect Egyptian cotton sheets in the 15 highly styled rooms, sheepskin rugs and, in some, a four-poster and even a hot tub.”
