The White Horse at Chilham in Kent


At the White Horse, it starts with a warm welcome.


Situated between Canterbury and Ashford, the beautifully picturesque village square of Chilham takes you back to a quieter and more relaxed time, and the White Horse is a key part of the square's character.


As an historic 14th century inn, it's a case of a large open fire during those chilly months, and with a large garden and seating overlooking the square, it's ideally suited for those balmy days and summer nights too.


A classic English pub with an authentic feeling and a touch of quirkiness, The White Horse has a great selection of wines and real ales. Food is served daily, regularly getting 5 star reports on Trip Advisor, as well as proudly having a food hygiene rating of 5.


Tasteful and classic music is played everyday and night. Keep a look out for the live music, varying from jazz evenings, blues & rock, acoustic sets and open 'mic' sessions. Quiz evenings once a month will keep you mentally sharp,  and test your knowledge on a range of subjects. Be sure to look for news here or on Facebook for up and coming dates on all of our events.


Landlord, Ryder, believes in 'old school' values of courtesy and attentiveness at all times, along with customary displays of humour and local knowledge. 


Come once as a valued guest, then return again as a valued friend.
