The White Horse (Nellies).: "A pub brimming with character." Top 5 Page for this destination Beverley Nightlife Tip by Piggy73

Beverley Nightlife: 11 reviews and 3 photos

This is one of the oldest oubs in the town - it's early origin as a coaching inn.

It is still illuminated by ancient gas lamps and many of the inns original fittings can be observed as you wander around the labyrinth of rooms. The open fires make it a cosy & comfortable location on a cold day.

Be careful of the uneven stone floors and wary of the wobbily wooden tables - you wouldn't want to spill your precious beer.

A modern extension at the rear offers an extensive selection on the jukebox and a couple of pool tables.

Due to the breweries music policy - NO LIVE MUSIC wiil be heard again in this Samuel Smith's pub.

A recent change in landlord (2005 ish) means that we rarely visit this pub as they are very keen for you to drink up as the closing time approache. We have no problems with this & respect the closing times - but it is the RUDE MANNER in which this is done and this has happened on a more than one occasion.

The pub is definately worth a visit for it's unique decor & historical value but remember there are far more friendly hostelries in the town !

The pub will be changing management in 2009 so we will take a visit - hopefully to a more customer friendly setting. I will update my review accordingly.
