The popular Seamer pub we know today as The Copper Horse hasn’t always been known by that name.
The Copper Horse was originally a farmhouse and outbuildings dating back to the 17th Century. It became a pub in the 1930’s called The White Horse, hence the name of the lane running alongside it, but when it was bought by England Rugby international and Scarborough Bookmaker, Leonard Price Stephens – it was re-named The Copper Horse, after a racehorse from some years earlier.
Since May 2005 The Copper Horse has been owned and run by the Thomas family, little has changed of the structure of The Copper Horse except for obvious and necessary modernization. In an interesting twist, it’s now decorated with newspaper cuttings, theatre memorabilia and posters from pantomimes put on round the country by its current owner, Nick Thomas.
Nick also started out as an entertainer when, as a young boy, his home-made puppets entertained thousands. Going from strength to strength, his company, QDOS is the world’s largest producer of pantomimes and is the second largest regional theatre operator in the country.
