Isle of Wight's Oldest Pub

Dogs & Children Welcome • Open 7 Days a Week for Food & Drink

The White Horse Inn pub is reputed to be one of the oldest in England let alone the Isle of Wight, as it was first recorded as a public house in 1454. With many more than 550 years of heritage and hospitality behind us, you can expect a warm and friendly welcome at this free house at any time of the year.

We serve a range of fine ales along with more traditional beers and ciders alongside some good-quality food from our specials board and menu.

Well behaved dogs are welcome on a lead, and we have a large beer garden with a play area for the children to enjoy.

We are proud to retain on average 4.5 stars on both Tripadvisor and Google Reviews.

We'll be open as usual during the roadworks
