A classic English pub on the village green, popular with locals and walkers. A foody haven in all seasons; children and dogs welcome!

Explore the highways of the Northamptonshire/Oxfordshire border and head for Kings Sutton, where The White Horse sits at the heart of the village with views to the parish church. Harry and Hannah’s pub is the centre of local life, a place of character and passion. Mellow Cotswold stone on the outside sets the tone for a warm and relaxed atmosphere inside, with roaring fire in the winter, cushioned window seats, low beamed ceilings and warm pastel walls. The menu is modern British with all ingredients sourced locally and there are good vegetarian options, too. Brakspear ales are on offer, plus traditional and New World wines. You can order delicious dishes to take home or in summer, dine al fresco and watch the sun set behind the church.
