We say…

The White Horse is a classic countryside pub located in the scenic town of Birstall, which can be found in Leicestershire. This historic pub welcomes all kinds of people from near and far, and is ideal if you live in the Leicester area, or even further afield, and want to try something new. It’s easily accessed by the adjacent A6, then a scenic country drive into old Birstall. The town itself is worth a visit thanks to the historic Grand Union canal, which runs right beside the pub, and is worth a trip into if you live near Leicester and want a lovely country drive followed by a hearty British meal.

The restaurant and pub may serve classic British food, but its interior is truly out of the orginary for a British pub. It nods to classic heritage with a well-stocked wood-panelled bar, but is light and airy with solid oak beams and beautiful neutral colour schemes. Head into the dog-friendly fireplace area to enjoy a drink after your meal, as you’ll love the warm and inviting atmosphere. In warmer weather, check out the pretty beer garden complete with comfy benches and plenty of places for the whole family to sit.

The menu at the White Horse features a selection of traditional food, and is all executed beautifully. To start, try the smoked haddock and spring onion fishcakes, or go for the pan-fried garlic mushrooms. Make sure to share a platter on your table, though, as you’ll get to try itmes from spring rolls, to stuffed jalapeno poppers, while saving room for your main course. If you want to treat yourself, go for the matured sirloin steak with hand cut chips, or try the 21 day aged burger with a whole mini camembert and beetroot and horseradish chutney, or one of the other unusual and tasty burgers on offer.


For classic British pub food in a gorgeous modern setting, you’ll want to pay the White Horse, Birstall a visit.
