With 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.

Introducing 'The Dozen'
The White Horse features an exclusive new dining concept, known as The Dozen and showcasing an informal all-day dining experience, effortlessly blending timeless British classics with locally sourced produce.
With signatures ranging from the “Dirty Dozen” burger, to the exclusive Dozen Sausage and baked sourdough buns, the menu is homely, yet refined, served in cosy and stylish surroundings.
Working extensively in partnership with local producers, all aspects of the restaurant and bar come infused with a defiantly local Surrey flavor. From the Dozen sausage, produced exclusively with the help of Dorking Butchery, to the cheese board and its input from Debbies’ local chutneys, as well as Kingfisher watercress in our soups.
Even the drinks list stems from the Surrey scene, with English sparkling wine from Greyfriars in Wanborough, a desert wine from Denbies just down the road, as well as tap ales and lagers from the Dorking and Wimbledon Breweries.
