About Us

We took over management of The White Horse in December 2013 and have never looked back!

A warm welcome at The White Horse always awaits you. We strive to support local farmers, food and drink providers and other suppliers. Our job then becomes easy to provide great quality food and drink at very reasonable prices.

The pub itself is over 400 years old and many of its original features still exist. Our village, Hinton St Mary, is on the crossroads of many wonderful country walks and cycle routes.

Dogs are always welcome in the pub and you’ll find water and treats available for that mid-walkies break!

    Called in on way to see a concert at The Exchange....unfortunately my mother @ 89 does not like barbecues, which they were having on this evening. The food and atmosphere was very nice, friendly diners and hosts. Will return alone when in the area. Real nice pub just as a village local should be. We had to find another pub to her fancy but thanks to White Horse people for appreciating this - all the diners were raving about the food to us.
