In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Closed 1950s (late).

last owner/operator: Greene King

29 High St

grid reference TL 672 454

The White Horse closed late in the 1950s and was demolished early in the 1960s.

A long-term landlord during the turn of the late 19th to the early 20th century was Alfred Dare who, to supplement his income, was also town crier and bill poster.

His posters can be seen leaning against the pub in the 1890 photograph***

The pub is thought to have been immediately to the west of the present NatWest bank. (Journal of the Haverhill and District Local History Group.)

Henry Richardson is listed as a farmer, brewer and victualler in The 1874 White's Directory.

Henry Richardson is listed as a baker in High Street in the 1861 census.
