The White Horse Inn - Dog Friendly Pub in Stourpaine, Dorset
A Historic Public House, Steeped In Heritage
The White Horse Inn is a traditional public house, steeped in heritage, in the quaint village of Stourpaine on the A350 just outside Blandford Forum. Dating back to the early 18th Century this pub was originally two buildings converted into one. Today, the inside provides an open-plan layout with a bar, restaurant, shop, post office, games room, wood burning stoves & an open fire. The external provides a covered outdoor decking area at the rear and a seating area out the front.
We are a friendly, welcoming traditional country pub that offers great food and a wide range of drinks. We have five real ales, a good choice of ciders, a great selection of wines and spirits and an extensive gin menu.
We’re ideally situated for walkers, ramblers and cyclists who wish to explore The North Dorset Trailway, The Jubilee Trail and Hambledon & Hod Hill.
Chris, Alison and their team provide a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere for you to enjoy. Whether you are dining with us or just enjoying a pint by the fire we would love to see you. Families with children are very welcome.
We love to have dogs in the pub and allow them in the bar area as well as the outside areas and offer dog bowls and complimentary treats.
The White Horse Inn has a fantastic menu available: we provide classic favourites you would expect to see on a traditional pub menu, as well as some inspiring specials and we would definitely recommend you leave room for one of our delicious puddings.
We offer a ‘Senior Citizens Lunch & Dinner Club’ Monday to Sunday lunchtimes and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Enjoy a main course and a dessert from the menu or the specials board followed by a cup of tea or coffee for just £13.95. (Limited menu on a Monday and Thursday and steaks are not included)
Where possible we source our ingredients from local suppliers.
We cater for occasions such as weddings, birthdays & funeral teas and we can seat up to 50 people.
You’ll find a great selection of Cask Ales, a good choice of ciders, wines & spirits, an extensive gin menu and an amazing selection of soft and low alcohol drinks.
Ales, Lagers & Stouts
We currently offer 5 cask ales which are kept in superb condition. Alongside our three resident ales our house ale, Flack Horse (from Flack Manor Brewery in Romsey), Doom Bar (from Sharp’s Brewery in Rock, Cornwall) and London pride (from Fuller’s Griffin Brewery, London) we have two regularly revolving guest ales, which are more often than not local ales, Sixpenny Brewery ales being a firm favourite, so you can always be sure of a surprising addition to our line-up.
We offer two draught lagers Carling and Sharp’s Pilsner and Peroni in bottles and we have Guinness on draught.
We have travelled the globe in our quest to provide the perfect Gin Menu with over 50 gins to date. All served with a Fever-Tree tonic and garnish pairing that has been carefully selected to bring out the best of the gin and highlight its botanical makeup. Our favourites are right on our doorstep!
We offer Stowford Press on draught and have a great selection of fruit ciders including local Purbeck Cider Company’s Dorset Blush. We also have local boxed traditional Cranborne Chase Cider.
Soft Drinks & Low Alcohol
You will be spoilt for choice with our amazing range of soft and low alcohol drinks. As well as Coca Cola, Lemonade & Soda on draught we have a great selection of Luscombe drinks made in Devon from organic fruit, fruit crushes, bubblies, traditional and juices. We have Britvic orange, grapefruit, pineapple and tomato juices and we have the full range of Fever-Tree tonics.
“Wonderful welcoming pub with excellent food. They let us book a table for lunch in the bar area as dogs aren’t allowed in the restaurant. The food was delicious and plentiful and the staff extremely helpful. Great selection of beers and some local cider. Great pub at the end of a very wet walk!”
