A prominent country pub dating back to the 15th century, The White Horse in Pulborough wears its history with pride.


The first recorded landlord was Edwin Wilmer in 1866, at this time Mare Hill was a separate little community from Pulborough. Until quite recently there was always a shop as part of The White Horse, described as a grocers, pork butcher and draper! 


From 1924 right through to the mid seventies the Greenfield family ran the pub, Alfred Greenfield followed by his sons and latterly Dorothy May Greenfield.


Many of the 17th century features, the oak timbers, ironstone walls and old fireplaces, were only discovered during an overhaul of the building in 1989 when the pub was closed for almost two years. It reopened in August 1991 and has since flourished to become a vibrant focal point in the local community as well as a destination for customers from around the globe.
