About us

The White Horse is a traditional pub in the village of Upper Poppleton, minutes from the beautiful city of York. Steeped in history, the pub has always played an integral part of village life, dating back from as early as 1793. From being the premises of a shoemaker, brewing stills of mint to help with ailments, and even being a biker’s paradise in the 1970’s, The White Horse has welcomed everyone over the years.

Today, the pub is run by Chris and Maria from York, who are ready to welcome you too.

Serving amazing food, great beer and wine and a large selection of non-alcoholic hot and cold drinks, The White Horse Pub & Dining is ready to make new history.

Just been here for Sunday roast. Booked a table at 2pm. Table wasn’t available till 2:10 as the party before were in no rush to leave. How it goes, not to worry. Then sat ages and had to ask for a menu. Eventually ordered and we were finally served at 3:20pm!! My 5 year old daughter and 2 year old nephew were passed themselves with hunger. One waitress (long brown hair) was running around trying her best but the other two were clearly work shy! Bar staff were grand as drinks orders arrived quickly. Food was nice but if we hadn’t ordered extra veg it wouldn’t have been worth the money. Spending nearly £18 on a beef dinner I would have hoped for more than one slice of meat as well! I know prices have gone up but come on! It was tasty though which is something. Met a lovely old lady on the table next to us who was 93 and still loving life! She was the highlight tbh. Sadly we won’t be back!

One of my favourite pubs in and around York. Whether it’s the Sunday roast (pictured) or their usual dinner / lunch menu - the food is always fantastic! Great service to match and the owner(s) always make sure everyone feels really welcome.

We just popped in to have a quick bite to eat and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the pub was. Very Farrow and Ball paintwork and lots of light. A nice, friendly, mixed crowd of couples, families, and locals just eating and drinking. We sat in the conservatory and just ordered some drinks and sandwiches. Not cheap, but well worth it, even at £10. Sandwiches were well presented and came with triple fried chips, gravy, and apple sauce for the roast Pork and tartare sauce for the fish butty 😋. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and you were made very welcome and not rushed. Highly recommended and will go again 👌🏾 👍🏾 👏🏾 🙂.

Sunday lunch 26th Feb 2023. From start to finish The White Horse gave everything to make your eating experience, one to remember. Booked for 5 people, this was our first time here and cannot recommend this place highly enough. We had 2 beef dinners, 2 pork dinners and a prawn tempura. There was nothing on the plates when we had finished. The beef (mine) was cooked to perfection and the pork (wife) was very tasty. The vegetables were seasonal and crisp, the roast potatoes were fantastic. The Yorkshire pudding was big but manageable. The staff were really pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be going back here. Loved everything about our meal, staff and cost.
