We look forward to welcoming you to The White Horse Inn, a charming Cotswold village inn. The White Horse Inn is a quintessential 17th Century English coaching inn set on the eastern side of the Cotswolds in the charming village of Duns Tew.
With original flagstone floors beams and real fires The White Horse has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere making it the perfect place to enjoy a drink or supper with friends. Our south facing courtyard is perfect on warm days. The White Horse Story - At the White Horse a warm welcome has greeted travellers for the last three hundred years.
Little is known of the early history of this late 17th or early 18th century hostelry but there was certainly an Inn here. Inn keepers are recorded here up to the present day with its own brew-house run by a Maltster in the early 17th century. The brew-house is now the site of the gent's loo! Towards the end of 1981 the White Horse was remodelled with the addition of a dining room but it was still a true inn as there was stabling and fodder for traveller's horses as well as Bed and Breakfast for the rider.
In the last decade of the 19th century the White Horse was again developed to the arrangement seen now with a new kitchen dining room and bar (in traditional style) and extended bedroom accommodation.
