The White Horse, Birstall

The White Horse invites you to enjoy Summer with them...See details below...

We are thrilled with our Canal and Riverside Trust award for the best Pub/restaurant in the East Midlands. More details below...

Have you got a celebration coming up?  We can tailor make any type of package to your own requirements, whether its a babyshower afternoon tea, A buffet for a Christening or Wake, a Birthday BBQ in our beautiful garden, we even do a very nice Wedding! See our food option on the Menus page. Just get in touch!

Dont forget we are an ideal spot to take on some refreshment and warm up after a bracing walk around Watermead, dogs are welcome in our bar area.

We continue to make additions to our well-stocked bar; the latest additions being Blue Moon and Thatchers cider and Peroni all on draught.

Stuck for something to do on a Sunday night? Our ever-popular quiz has a fearsome reputation. If you think you've got what it takes to win a bar tab, then we'll see you there for an 8.30pm start (but you may struggle for a table past 8!)

For those just looking for an excuse to visit and sample the liquid refreshment, we have live music every last Friday of the Month with various musical styles on offer.  Two new acts coming up are: Carlton Cole, blues and folk soloist and Strawberry letter, vocal and Piano duo.      

Meals are also served for those wanting a little musical accompaniment to their dining.

If you would like to receive information about our monthly events, please send us an e-mail from the ‘Contact Us’ section and we will add you to our mailing list.


'The Gintleman' -from Birmingham to Birstall

The summer season was kicked off in style at the White Horse’s inaugural Gin Night, celebrating world Gin day.  Expert Raconteur, Carl Hawkins, AKA ‘The Gintleman’ came especially for the event.  Carl, from Birmingham, entertained and informed as he took the group of 36 on a Gin world tour, Malfy from Italy, Roku from Japan, Nordes from Spain, Boodles Mulberry Gin from the UK and finally Four Pillars Shiraz Gin from Australia were tasted and graded.  The most popular Gins have now been added to the White Horse Bar.  We created a delicious food menu to accompany the Gin at this sold out event.  The evening was a great success and we hope to repeat the evening with a different Gin selection later in the year.

A great deal of work has been done this Spring to improve the outside dining experience at the White Horse with the creation of a Garden Bar outside dining area.  The space has been painted and has new tables and comfortable seating.  Tables can be booked in this area and it is also available for party bookings.

The Garden Bar ‘opens with Sunshine’ and is well stocked with popular Peroni, a good selection of Gins, and refreshing fruit Ciders.  The Local has also included a Pizza oven in this space which are perfect to share.  The pizza bases are freshly made by artisan Baker, Milners of Blaby and are available as a Margarita, Roasted Mediterranean Veg or spicy Pepperoni- Delicious!

Talking of Baking – The Great Birstall Bake Off will be the next event organised by The White Horse for Macmillan.  Bake entries will be warmly accepted on September 22nd with the Coffee and Cake morning following on Sunday 23rd.


The owners and staff would like to thank all of their customers for their ongoing support and custom.  Here’s to a Super Summer!
