White Horse

Picture source: Will Larter

The White Horse was situated at 29 West Street. This grade-II listed pub is now in residential use.
It was originally owned by the adjacent Soulby, Sons & Winch's brewery (Est. 1897) and was allowed to fall into disrepair after the company was taken over by J.W. Green of Luton in 1951 and closed the following year but in 1958 it was taken over and renovated. A former resident states that in 1960 "the White Horse was then a coffee bar". In June 2001 the fire brigade turned out due to flooding in the building. On 17th July 2012 the minutes of the town council meeting report "White Horse Public House is still a cause for concern. It is understood that there are new owners who will hopefully start work on these premises. If not Planning Enforcement will". In September 2013 the White Horse appeared to be up for sale again.
