White Horse Inn

The White Horse Inn when it was a thriving village pub – not so long ago

The White Horse Inn Morcott is set at the east end of the High Street at the junction of the A47 and A6121 Stamford Road. Sadly, the pub has been shut for over two years.

The building itself, and the land adjoining the A47/A6121 is owned by Burghley House Preservation Trust (the charity that supports Burghley in Stamford).

At an initial Public Consultation with the village held in July 2016, Burghley Estates outlined proposals to make a major investment in the White Horse Inn, so that it might re-open as a ‘new’ White Horse – but only if it is able to develop the remainder of the site for housing. Discussions between Burghley Estates and Morcott Parish Council are ongoing.

    My grandfather, Ronald Robinson, was the public an at the White Horse back in the 50s and 60s. I don’t have much in the way of family history from his side of the family – if anyone knows anything I’d be really grateful! Thanks!

    I lived in this pub from 1972 until 1974, my mum and dad were landlords. I revisited in 1990 and received a warm welcome. Very sad

    Grandpa Joyce lived in Corner House on Willoughby Road; sorry to say he drank in the Monkton Arms which is now the Pheasant. The White Horse is closed but with its location and the Travelodge/Little Chef site up the top in some disarray, maybe a well-known chain will breathe some light into this one as well.
    Change is in all our lives. What a great village with great people and great history.

    Now this is a real shame. Whether it was for a stop off, a meal, or a few drinks…….. We were always made very welcome and the charachter of the place was tremendous……. great shame!!!

    Got married in Rutland in 2012 and The White Horse Inn was our monthly stop over point for keeping in touch with the place. Used to enjoy the character of the place and particularly the dry wit of the Landlord Smog. It’s a great loss.

    We had many enjoyable drinks and meals in the White Horse over the years but sadly it was not supported by most of the villagers.
