Nestled on the brink of Watermead Country Park just north of Leicester in the village of Birstall, you'll find the quaint yet contemporary White Horse. A quintessentially British Public House with dining, our aim is to please regardless of the occasion; whether it's a working lunch, a bike-ride pit stop or a three course Saturday night, you'll receive the same attentive and obliging service.

With an impeccably-stocked bar - featuring five draught Lagers and three traditional hand poored ales, an extensive spirit range and a thoroughly-researched wine list - you'll be spoilt for choice whether you're yearning for a refreshing soft drink or a pristine Peroni.

The rustic British décor provides all of the heartiness of a traditionally British country Public House, yet a contemporary twist ensures that there is a unique and welcoming atmosphere. For those wishing to enjoy our food menu, there is a separate modern dining area where booking is advisable. But many people also enjoy the comforting ambience of our relaxed bar area or the freshness of our garden.

Our large beer garden looks over the Grand Union Canal, and is the ideal location to enjoy crisp winter days whilst encased in natural serenity. It's the perfect place to re-fuel during a bike ride or walk and with dog bowls aplenty, there's always something for man's best friend. And our recently-refreshed children's play area will keep any youngster occupied for the duration of your stay, but it might cost you a Fruit Shoot or two!

We don't give you much reason to stay away either! Whether it's our famous Sunday night quiz, garden bar or charity events you're sure to find something to suit your needs. Check out the 'Events' tab for what's happening in the coming month!

We hope you enjoy our experience as much as we do!

From all of us here at the White Horse, Birstall.
