It's actually welcome addition to the picturesque village of Shere. I've been to others in this chain and they're not as good. The food is actually very good, which I was surprised at. The chorizo and calamari starters are really good. Happily return here, try...More

We arrived to news that the central heating had broken down, but our cheerful, welcoming waitress Hannah-Louise was quick to suggest that we re-sited to a table near a blazing log fire and indeed we were as cosy as toast despite the pub's heating problems....More

Description
Nestling amongst the lovely half-timbered buildings of Shere, close to the tiny bubbling River Tillingbourne, is a former 15th century farmhouse and Grade II Listed Building called The White Horse.It's hard to imagine an English country pub more idyllic. One of Hollywood's most romantic films 'The Holiday,' starring Cameron Diaz and Jude Law, was shot there. In fact, the charms of Shere have lured the creators of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,' and 'The Wedding Date' and 'Molly Moon' too.In its former life, The White Horse was a 15th century farmhouse called: 'The Cripps,' and it became an inn sometime in the 17th century. It is also rumoured to be a former smugglers' pub after a secret cellar was discovered during extensive renovations. Authentic timbers taken from Nelson's ship, 'Victory,' are thought to be part of the pub, and there are also some traditional village stocks on the premises too.Inside, private spaces, nooks and crannies set the scene for romantic dining whilst, outside, a shaded courtyard ensures the perfect setting for eating al fresco. Come rain or shine, The White Horse is a must for lovers of traditional British country pubs. Recent filming in Shere: 26th October till 9th November 2012 Molly Moon: The Incredible Hypnotist. Starring: Raffey Cassidy as Molly, Dominic Monaghan, Lesley manville, Emily Waston, Ben Miller, Celia imrie, Anne-Marie Duff, Sadie Frost, Joa Collins.

International stars Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth, as well as a host of British comic actors, were involved in the filming of the sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary in the village. Two hundred extras and crew bustled around the normally peaseful streets as a crowd of expectant onlookers jostled to see the celebrities. Tonnes of false snow were sprayed over the church and graveyard and throughout the morning the village experienced an early-winter blizzard. Several police officers attended the site to control the lorries that served the set and to try and contain the paparazzi photographers who were there to snap the stars. 1994 Four Weddings and a Funeral 1990 Bullseye!
