An ancient coaching inn, the 15th Century White Horse Inn
is mentioned in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
Set in the heart of the Garden of England and surrounded by orchards and hop gardens, the pub has a long tradition of warm and friendly hospitality.
Although this view may not have been shared by the 19th century Courtney rioters sentenced to death in the pub when it was used as a courtroom.
A traditional pub with a contemporary twist, with the benefit of a village setting and garden, with a bouncy castle during clement weather. The food served is the best of British pub grub; traditional pub food that uses locally sourced ingredients where possible. There are daily specials and a Sunday carvery. Come and soak up the authentic atmosphere of an historic inn whilst enjoying the excellent food, wines, beers and service. The White Horse is licensed for civil ceremonies and can cater for most events.
Set in the village of Boughton, mid-way between Faversham and Canterbury, there's a wealth of things to see and do in the area. Mount Ephraim, scenic walking routes and Boughton Golf Club is nearby.
The White Horse is within easy reach of numerous attractions including Canterbury with its internationally known Cathedral ( a World Heritage Site), Leeds Castle, Whitstable ( famed for its oysters and freshly caught fish) Dover, with its ferry service to Calais, and numerous Castles, gardens and stately homes of Kent.
There is also an excellent hourly train service from Faversham (3 miles away) to London Victoria and St Pancras. Ashford International is 25 minutes away, where you can easily travel to Paris and other European destinations.
