This place has improved greatly in the last year, I have been in fortnightly for a couple of pints and have sampled real ale from Shalford, Brentwood, Mighty Oak and other local breweries which have been absolutely spot-on. I have eaten there twice this year, first was a good snack of tempura prawns, the other was a fabulous rump steak. The White Horse used to have a bit of an identity crisis, but now it's definitely a pub with great beer as well as food.

Taken over in Janury 2009 by Chris and Cam they have given this traditional bac kstreet local a new lease of life. Real ale festival in April was good offering range of 15 ales from local Essex micros. Good pub grub on offer.

A lovely find in picturesque Pleshey. My wife and I ventured out on our bicycles during a snow storm and stopped here to warm up. The staff were accomodating, the fire gloriously warm and coffee and tea lovely. The beer and food looked good, but alas we needed to get a move on whilst the snow had stopped.

I can appreciate the comments on here about the ruination of a local, but the bar area was not crowded when we arrived at 12.30pm on a Sunday. These pubs have to change to survive - either that or another gorgeous hostelry is lost to private residence.

The White Horse is a former pub which before the present owners was a focus for locals from the outlying villages. It was not unknown for plates of decent food to be served at 10pm if you were late back from work. Now it's become a food factory; all drinkers, including me, have packed their bags and scattered after being banished to a 'reception' bar the size of a pantry. These rambler-restaurants are a curse on the local community, I'm afraid.

The White Horse is an excellent free pub with some unusual features, and is very rambler friendly. It will open up early for rambler groups if they require the toilets in the pub and it will sell boot and shoe covers for just 20p! There is a gift shop inside which sells souvenirs, cards, candles and the like. Much of the floor space is given over to eating as it is as much of a restaurant as it is a pub. There are four menus no less: a bar snacks menu, a la carte, a specials menu, paying a set price for any two courses and also a seafood menu. The Almond Nut Roast, Casserole of Duckling and Mike’s Hot & Cold Lobster dish are amongst the choices. The pub especially caters for those who have an allergy to wheat flour and so many dishes are gluten free. The pub is not big on beers, selling Youngers Bitter, but it has an extensive wine list for its diners.
