Welcome to the White Horse Inn
The White Horse Inn pub is reputed to be one of the oldest in England, let alone the Isle of Wight as was first recorded as a public house in 1454. With many more than 500 years of heritage and hospitality behind us you can expect a warm and friendly welcome at at this freehouse any time of the year.
Enjoy local food and drink
These days food is very much at the heart of a good pub and we pride ourselves on presenting a menu of food that is certain not to disappoint. Our Specials Board and main menu are packed with local Island produce and provide excellent choices for all tastes with quality selection of gluten-free and vegetarian options. Everything is prepared and cooked in our own kitchen so you can enjoy quality home-cooked flavours.
Our real ales change regular and there are normally at least three to choose from including some of best that our local breweries can provide. Choose from our range of premium lagers and cider and one of the best wine lists available in any pub of the Island.
Inside the White Horse Inn you will find a charming traditional bar area as well as spacious and well laid-out places to enjoy your meal. The walls are decorated with old images of Whitwell as well as some vintage farming equipment that might have seen action around the village in years gone-by. Its a proper village pub with a large beer garden and children’s play area and ample car parking. We also welcome well-behaved dogs.
Of course we think the White Horse Inn is special, but then we were both born and raised in the village and have known it all our lives.
We look forward to welcoming you soon…
