The White Horse is a friendly family run pub by landlord and chef James Cole. James has been a chef for about 15 years working in some of the best pubs in the area and earned himself a Rosette Award in 2012.
The menus are ever changing and when we say its homemade, we mean it. From our ice creams to gravy stocks, hand cut chips to sauces and dressings, it's all made by us and we try and come up with fresh and interesting things for you all to try. We can cater for any dietary requirements or special needs you may have.
We are located at South Cheriton, between Wincanton and Templecombe situated in the rural countryside of south Somerset, only 8 miles from the ancient Abbey town of Sherbourne.
The pub itself boasts a variety of seating areas to suit our customers needs, from the formal dining area to the casual seating in the bar area and snugs. We have a large car park to the side of the pub and also a beer garden at the rear of the pub, which is fully fenced. We are family, children and dog friendly and our customers can enjoy a nice, safe and friendly environment to eat, drink and socialize.
On the walls you will find paintings and other art to enjoy from local artists to James' grandmother who is abstract artist Patricia Lomax. We also have sculptures around the pub and if any thing catches your eye everything is for sale, we take no commission and the funds go to the artists them selves.
We have local musicians who will entertain the customers on occasion from real folk music to Pete and his rock guitar.
We have had a brand new cellar fitted with state of the art beer cooling technology and we have cracking ales to match from plain ales in Sutton Veny, the Sheepdip and Intrigue go down very well! Also we have noble English craft lager which is brewed with the lightest lager malt and the German Tettnang hop , which is famed for being one of the 5 'noble' hops from continental Europe. It is noted for being low in bitterness and highly aromatic. It was said that back in the reign of henry 8th the English brewers of the time petitioned the king to ban the Tettnang hop and the monarch declared it a "wicked and pernicious weed", we are just glad we can sample what our ancestors were denied!
We also have chosen some great wines which we think you will enjoy.
“Superb food in traditional old pub full of character”
