The White Horse (Nellies)
White Horse Inn, otherwise known as 'Nellies' from the days back prior to 1976 when the pub was owned and run by the Collinsons family. Francis Collinson purchased the pub form the church in 1927 and more notably her daughter Nellie, managed the place until its sale to the Samuel Smiths Old Brewery (Tadcaster).
The pub, originally a coaching in, pre-dates 1666 - when it was detailed in local records - and is probably the second oldest surviving Inn, in Beverley, next to that of The Sun Inn, which is opposite Beverley Minster. However, The White Horse Inn / Nellies, unlike other local holsteries, maintains most of its original features, including gas lights and chandeliers, small individual rooms, rickety stone and wooden floors, and open fires. The 'tobacco stained' walls, are actually painted that colour - as the premises, not unlike others, are constantly, and sympathetically, redecorated.
It is in the CAMRA inventory for unspoilt pub interiors.

The sign of the House of Hanover, adopted by many 18th Century inns to demonstrate loyalty to the new Royal dynasty. A white horse is also the emblem of the County of Kent. The name can also refer to the chalk horses carved into hillsides.
