Fancy playing a tune or two in the pub?

We have a lovely piano (in tune!) and a guitar in the pub - if you fancy playing a tune at a time when we have no other live music please feel free. Entertaining the rabble will usually earn you some free drinks!!

Got a live act you think will go down well?

We do also book paid acts in the pub - although our pub is very small so our fee is too, and we only have room for 3 band members maximum. Acoustic (unplugged) acts only. To enquire about performing please email swefflingwhitehorse@hotmail.com

Horse & Carriage Rides

 Horse & Carriage rides

Now that the evenings are darker the evening drives are no longer available - but they'll be back (all being well) on the lighter evenings. In the meantime if you'd like to book a drive to/from the pub on a Sunday lunchtime or at another time for a special occasion please contact Alde Driving direct.

Most summer evenings (weather permitting) Alde Driving will arrive at the pub at 7pm to take pub customers for an evening circular drive through the countryside. You have the choice of a short (20 mins) or longer drive, maximum 5 people per carriage. No need to book - simply be at the pub at 7pm.
