Now that winter is in full swing, and the snow comes down around us, who wouldn’t want to snuggle up with a nice glass of wine next to a smouldering fire in a cosy village pub? Well, if you ever find yourself in Oxfordshire, you could do a hell of a lot worse than The White Horse in Kings Sutton.
Hendrik and Julie have been running the White Horse since 2013, and a year ago we were lucky enough to get a taste of what it’s like when we photographed their beautiful winter wedding. Fast forward 12 months, and Hendrik and Julie asked us if we could do some promotional work for the pub. We gladly said yes as we knew what a fantastic venue and business they run.
We arrived on a Saturday morning and got to work photographing the different spaces before they opened for lunch. As you might imagine, they’ve decorated the place with lots of horse related paraphernalia, but you really couldn’t have named it anything else. We saw at least five horses trot by as we took photos!
I’d heard from a our local Airbnb host that the pub had numerous owners before Hendrik and Julie took over, but none had managed to make it work. Judging by the amount of customers that came in for lunch, it looks like they’re onto something great here. What really sets this place apart is the food. We knew we were taking photos of the food, but we didn’t expect a slap up three course meal on the house as part of the job! The food was beautiful to eat and look at as well. I won’t go into too much detail, because you can see the quality for yourself in the photos below.
