“Lovely pub!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Located on the way down from the dover cliffs to the rail station, this typical English pub has a great terrace in the back and a lovely staff serving good old English beer. Very friendly atmosphere and a cosy setting, good place to wash down your favorite beers!

“good local - allows dogs”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I believe this is a popular locals pub in Dover (and one of the better) but unfortunately the house wine by the glass is a bit poor.

“Wonderful Pub Experience in Dover!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

One reason for our choice of B & B in Dover is that it's just a block and a half from what looked like a good pub (and historical). It turns out that the White Horse Inn is the place that channel swimmers go to have a pint and leave their autographs on the ceiling and walls. In fact, we met Padraic Mallon just before his successful swim across the channel (we all cheered him and his friends and family). Congratulations, Padraic! This is the kind of atmosphere that will greet you at the White Horse. The pint of choice for me was a bitter from Bolton, Lancashire, called Mad Goose, a mad and wonderful pint. I want more! Tony is the friendly bartender, and we got to meet other locals. Loved the conversations with people like Diana. Made our short stay very memorable. Thank you, Dover!
