Great pub again. New landlord very friendly and accommodating, good range of beers and an enjoyable time to be had.

10 Dec 2011. The White Horse at South Lopham is now open again as a Freehouse. Currently serving Greene King IPA and "South Lopham Gold" brewed by the Fox Brewery. A lovely proper old pub building with real wood fires. Apparently they hope to have the kitchen open for proper pub grub by the end of January but on first impressions the new landlords are committed to making this a proper and thriving village pub.

dunno wot the last guy is on about, ive been using the horse 4 yrs and people who are 'visitors' to the area have always been made 2 feel very welcome by regulars and have been commended on the atmosphere, not making people feel 'intrusive'. as for the 10.30 situ that was a 'last admittance' time, which is no longer in place. always been a great pub 4 beer, music, food n chillin in the lovely big beer garden! new hosts taken over r a great couple and think they will do well!

This village pub on the main Diss-Thetford road was, in effect, my local for a week as we stayed in the Old Post Office Cottage opposite. The exterior is spectacularly clad in ivy that turns a deep red at this time of the year making the pub a real eye opener to passers by. The interior is divided into a main bar with a screened off darts area, small booth for DJ and separate pool room. There are plenty of beams, pillars and stripped brickwork but not all original as the building has clearly been given a modern makeover at some point. The bar is dominated by a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. The area to the right of the entrance is more geared for diners although the only menu we saw was a fairly basic lunchtime menu. The beers were not particularly exciting; the ubiquitous Green King IPA, Abbott and Adnams with Bass making an appearance as the guest beer. Quality of the beer was decent enough although a group of locals seem to be permanently attached to the area in front of the bar and it felt quite intrusive trying to order. Fridays are to be avoided unless you are into Elvis impersonator style entertainment but overall the pub is fine and worth a stop for. I was however rather irked by being refused service at 10.30 one night despite their website stating they are open until 11.30 during the week and midnight at weekends. From my cottage window I could see the regulars still happily knocking them back an hour and half after I was told they were supposedly shut. Obviously one rule for locals and one for the rest.

Gone through a lot of owners in the last few years. currnet owners are doing well. Decent real ale and a good sized garden with play area for children.

Lovely old pub that has 3 or 4 decent beers and a good quality/ value food menu (2-course OAP's special at �4.95).

They also have a small-sized bouncy castle to keep the small-sized BITE-ers' of the future busy while you slurp their guest ale!
