The White Horse is a large detached property in the East Yorkshire village of Gilberdyke, situated on the B1230 which runs parallel and south of the M62 between Newport and Howden. This is a destination food outlet and the site occupies an excellent main road location just on the outskirts of the village.  Gilberdyke is an attractive village with a population of about 3,500 residents and there are plenty of local amenities located in nearby towns of Howden and Goole.

Pub Layout

The pub is in excellent condition following the refurbishment at the start of 2022 when it underwent full redecoration creating a fabulous light and airy pub, decorated with a modern and contemporary look.  The dining area could easily double up as a function area for private events or group meetings. The main bar area is spacious with a log burning stove, pool table and darts oche which proves a popular space for both casual diners and drinkers. A well-equipped catering kitchen can be found towards the rear of the pub. Externally the pub has a real gem of a garden with a seperate decked seating area which is a great space for external fun days or events. The adjacent car park can comfortably accommodate up to 50 vehicles.

The White Horse currently operates as a destination food venue, although it also benefits from an established regular drinks trade from the neighbouring community. The menu is focused on traditional, homemade pub food with daily specials and weekly theme nights. Regular entertainment has proved very popular with the local community, and there is an opportunity to develop this through weekly quiz nights and live music alongside pub sports teams.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation is located on the first floor with three large bedrooms (one of which is en-suite). There is also a family bathroom, sitting room, kitchen and office. The accommodation has been maintained to a good standard and well decorated throughout.
