Shutting Down Completely

These are unprecedented times. We are bracing ourselves for the impact of recent announcements and as an independent family run business, we are having to take extraordinary measures in extraordinary times to protect our customers, our team and our business.

We are therefore closing all operations with immediate effect as we believe this is the most responsible thing we can do to protect the welfare of our staff, the communities we serve and the National effort.

We have decided to halt all take away offerings and rooms. In the rare instance that you have a room booked, we will contact you directly.

Follow us on social media channels to find out more of what we are doing to continue to support our communities at this hour of need. Click to read more.

There's a delicious menu selection whether you choose to dine in our award winning conservatory restaurant or the bar. Wherever you choose to eat you will enjoy a relaxed casual dining experience.

All dishes are prepared to order using the freshest ingredients, sourced from our wonderful local producers. 

The menus change regularly and are created from the best seasonal pickings on offer. and daily specials too, not forgetting an extensive bar menu with weekly specials served during the winter months from 12noon to 9pm every day.

A very special treat with a stunning view across Brancaster Bay and the tidal marsh is Fran's Norfolk take on Afternoon Tea, it's truly scrumptious.

We love to see dogs in the bar but not in the restaurant.

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to close down public spaces in our business for the time being.

Watch this space for further UPDATES.

Fran Hartshorne, Head Chef
Fran has been thriving in the kitchen since 2005, stepping up to Head Chef in recent years. You could say Fran is ‘home grown’ and has been on a great journey with us at The White Horse, she worked in the US for a number of years but Norfolk is where her cooking comes into its own. 'I feel the luckiest Chef on the Norfolk coast, creating in a kitchen that faces out across the stunning tidal marsh, it can’t get much better' says Fran. Passionate about seasonality and the provenance of her ingredients she aims to explore, experience and use every available local ingredient in her menus. There’s an abundance of choice, the pairing of which with Fran’s creativity takes local produce to its highest level. See Fran in Norfolk Table, a cookbook that celebrates the talents of 20 chefs along the coast. A great read including some of Fran’s delicious recipes. Avaliable to buy at reception for £19.95 it's the perfect souvenir following a meal or stay here at The White Horse.
