Location and contact

The White Horse in Boughton is a historic pub restaurant with more than its fair share to offer guests. Not only is this ancient coaching inn mentioned in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, but its location in a glorious village surrounded by hop field lined walks to Mount Ephraim Gardens and the site of The Peasant's Last Revolt recommend this excellent stop before one even ventures inside. As you may well hope, The White Horse is beautifully traditional inside, with roaring log fires, low-beamed ceilings and a cosy, intimate feel. Meanwhile, outside beautiful landscaping has turned a pleasant pub garden in to an Englishmans dream. Locally renowned chefs are creating quite a stir in the kitchen with

I was really very disappointed by the service in this establishment. We had to wait well over an hour for our main course to arrive. At no time did any staff enquire if everything was to our satisfaction. The food itself was nothing out of...More

Yes, there's a car park behind the White Horse. Just turn in from The Street and drive up alongside the building and you'll see it ahead of you.
