Pairing old and new in an effortless manner
White Horse Hotel
Housed in an original 18th century coaching inn, The White Horse is centrally located within the vibrant Surrey market town of DorkingWith a homely and luxurious flair that marries perfectly with the historic roots of Surrey’s Dorking, the White Horse Hotel (an 18th-century coaching inn that has recently been undergone an exceptional refurbishment) is ideally placed to explore this area of outstanding natural beauty. Just minutes from the Surrey Hills and acres of woodland parks, there’s no reason not to rediscover the great outdoors and fill your lungs with fresh air.
Slip off your boots and Barbour coats, in the comfort of your cosy surroundings before snuggling up in the sumptuous new mattresses and finest bed linens. The lavish en-suite bathrooms are clean and contemporary with powerful showers, deep, bubbly tubs and indulgent toiletries.
Shining a light on exquisite local ingredients, ‘The Dozen’ has recently opened it’s doors as the White Horse’s stand-alone dining experience. Open all-day to serve delectable dishes to guests and locals alike, there are plenty of menus to choose from but if dining a-la-carte, we wholeheartedly recommend the Sussex Camembert Wellington! ‘Mr Pickwick’s Afternoon Tea’ is one to note and comprises delicious treats including chocolate choux buns, ale-braised brisket finger sandwiches and mini scotch quail’s egg.
Conveniently located just a few minutes from Dorking Train Station, it is 30 miles from Central London and 7 miles from Gatwick Airport.
Nearby sights include the world-famous Epsom racetrack (3 miles), alongside Bletchworth Park (1 mile), Denbies Vineyard (2 miles), Box Hill (2 miles), Chessington World of Adventure (5 miles), as well as both Dorking and Effingham Golf Clubs (2 miles).
