With a striking black and white façade decorated with colourful hanging baskets you can’t miss the Coach and Horses. This welcoming pub dates back to the 15th century, and back in the day it used to serve the monastery that sat at the top of Appledore. Speaking of the olden days, you can still huddle beside the original fireplace on chilly days and the beams have been left exposed during recent refurbishments to help the pub keep its character.
The restaurant area serves local produce that goes down a storm with reviewers and the ale’s locally sourced too, so expect good food and a friendly atmosphere. If you find yourself dazzled by the menu and grappling with your decision then here’s a pointer for you - the barbeque ribs come highly recommended and they’re even prepared right on the premises.
Coach and Horses is one of Appledore’s leading venues for live music too, and Wednesday evenings often see acoustic jam sessions and there are regular sing-a-longs on Sunday afternoons for those of you that like to join in (well you are on holiday after all…). One more thing before you go - rumour has it there's a resident ghost at the pub, so keep your eyes open!
