“A proper pub”

The Sweffling White Horse
Ranked #1 of 1 Restaurants in Sweffling
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This small pub is like stepping back in time, with beer drawn straight from the barrel, no piped music, people talking to each other and even to strangers, and a really good atmosphere. The beer is well kept, but they do sell other drinks as well. We had an enjoyable visit, but do check the opening times, as they are not open every day.

I can only add to the previous reviews that this place is just great. Quirky certainly and perhaps more winter than summer, but great atmosphere, beer and most especially the hands -on owners and regulars. Hopefully it will never change !

Just had a hangover cure of Fentimans Cola at the wonderful Sweffling White Horse. Maz and Mark made me very welcome as I sat by the fire and enjoyed a chilled Sunday afternoon..

Met up with a group of friends on a Friday evening (opening hours limited so check website) the place was full but everyone was willing to share tables. Beers are excellent, served from a tap-room and we all had the pies from the local Farmcafe. They are excellent but order early before they run out. The atmosphere is superb with low lighting and a log burner will be back.

A real gem of a pub run by a couple who care deeply about their approach to providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. There is no bar, but a good selection of real ales and cider are served from the tap room and the interior is more like an old fashioned comfortable parlour. There is also a wide selection of bottled beer, wine and spirits. Pub games are much in evidence and in the depths of winter a huge Aga warms the pub. An eclectic clientele ranges from locals to those who just know a good pub when they find one and visitors staying at the associated camping site which deserves a review of its own. Ideal for families with perhaps a slightly hippie orientation, it features a variety of interesting accommodation in a sustainable and eco-friendly environment. Food options in the pub are limited and be warned, it is only open from Friday to Monday inclusive. Congratulations to Mark and Marie for having created the perfect pub.
