THE STORY OF The White Horse Hotel

Dating back to the 1700s and originally built as a coaching inn, The White Horse has long been a cornerstone of community life in this peaceful, charming Surrey town, enduringly popular with local residents and workers alike.

Nestled amongst the green and leafy Surrey Hills, close to the South Downs, this inviting pub reflects the rural feel of the area and is conveniently located for relaxation and refreshment after a day’s walking or cycling in the stunning countryside, or a trip to one of the nearby National Trust sites.

Perched handsomely on Haslemere High Street, The White Horse is an 18th century Grade II listed building, lovingly restored and combining sumptuous period features with upscale contemporary touches: wood panelling, leather furnishings, exposed brickwork and statement chandeliers combine to create an inviting bar area, dotted with reminders of this welcoming pub’s former role as a coaching inn. Outside, The White Horse boasts its original front cobbled terrace – the perfect spot for al-fresco dining or a glass of something special on a sunny day. During those chillier months, the open fire is kept roaring, giving a home-from-home feel.

Dog-friendly and fostering a relaxed and friendly village vibe, The White Horse holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart.

On the main commuter line for both London and Portsmouth, yet feeling far removed from city life, The White Horse is well-connected by public transport and undoubtedly worth venturing off the beaten track to visit.
