This motel is a former coaching inn, built in 1647. The large comfortable interior uses exposed timbers and a chimney breast to create more intimate seating areas each with its own style.
Local legend tells of a tunnel running from the White Horse to the nearby Thornham Magna Four Horseshoes, though we know of no actual evidence.
The pub is sometimes listed as being in Thornham Magna.
