The White Horse


The White Horse has been restored to its former Dickensian glory as one of England’s most storied coaching inns following a £4.5 million refurbishment. Set at the head of Dorking’s famed High Street, amidst the rolling Hills of the North Downs and Surrey’s world-famous Denbies Vineyard Estate.

There are now 56 luxury rooms and two meeting rooms and large restaurant and bar known as The Dozen Restaurant and Bar, which serves a menu of both traditional British and Modern European cuisine.
