The White Horse Inn, Great Barrow. Chester.
It Is The Perfect Hideaway
The pub is an old coaching inn c.18th century nestled in the centre of Great Barrow village ideally situated on the outskirts of Chester and a perfect base for visiting the historic city and all of the local attractions such as Chester zoo, Cheshire Oaks, roman walls, the cathederal, the blue Planet aquarium, ice cream farm and much much more.
We are still researching our history but thanks to a lovely local lady we have found out the following so far!!!
In 1838 it was owned by Samuel Higginson, and was an old thatched building before it was rebuilt by the Birkenhead Brewery.
in 1850 John Leach was Innkeeper, and in 1860 he is described as “farmer/Innkeeper”. Old Mrs Leach had a room at the back where dancing took place to concertina and tambourine and dances that “anyone could dance who couldn’t dance”. Village maidens went after Dad was in bed for “Mother didn’t mind” though the rector disapproved.
In 1893 when the Inn was being re-built, Albert Edward Spencer came to be Innkeeper and was here until his death in 1934.
Today, the pub has been renovated and updated with 4 guest rooms built into the old stables and hayloft and an additional self catering cottage built in 1906 and just a short walk from the pub.. The White Horse Inn still retains many of its original features.
Ground floor room with wider doors and lower light switches for wheelchair users. Ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle.
Note: this room is only semi accessible for wheelchair users as there is a small step into the shower which may not be suitable for people with very limited mobility.
