Welcome to the White Horse Inn, Boughton-under-Blean


A message to our customers

We will be closing our doors on 11th October and wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to all of our customers over the past eleven years!

A 15th century coaching inn mentioned in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the White Horse makes a sublime setting for your own story in the Kentish countryside. 

Nestled in the village of Boughton-under-Blean, midway between Canterbury and Faversham, it’s a special place to dine, drink and stay - with 13 beautiful bedrooms providing a great base for exploration.

The pub itself tells a tale of lightly travelled local ales and award-winning food. Beers are brewed just a few miles away by Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, while the restaurant, recognised by AA for three years in a row, also brings delicious local produce to the table.

It’s all served up in historic, atmospheric surroundings - with roaring log fires, low-beamed ceilings and a cosy, intimate feel inside, and beautiful landscaping outdoors turning a pleasant pub garden into an Englishman’s dream.

Indeed, for lovers of the outdoors, there can be few finer pubs in the area. Surrounded by hop-field-lined walking routes to Mount Ephraim Gardens and the site of The Peasants' Last Revolt, the White Horse is a blissful spot for walkers and cyclists in search of rest and refreshment.

And with tourist attractions such as Canterbury Cathedral, Whitstable Harbour and Leeds Castle also close at hand, the White Horse is an ideal base for less energetic pursuits too. For a lazy lunch or a lingering long weekend, we look forward to seeing you soon…
