The White Horse public house
Public house. 1855. By John Bunstone Bunning for the
Corporation of the City of London. Yellow brick set in English
bond, Portland stone dressings, roof of slate. Four storeys
over basement, four windows to Market Road, five to Shearling
Way, these being the principal facades. Rusticated stone
quoins to corners; stone plinth.
Elliptical-arched entrance in single-storey porch to east,
flanked by rusticated pilasters with architrave, fluted
keystone, panelled spandrels and cornice; one flat-arched
entrance in Market Road, two in Shearling Way; flat-arched
windows to ground floor flanked by slim engaged columns, the
windows to Shearling Way forming, with the entrances, a
continuous range across the whole front; the columns support
elaborate brackets to a first-floor balcony across the whole
of the Shearling Way front, with cast-iron railings; fascia to
Market Road. The first-floor windows are round-arched with
architrave, cornice on consoles and panelled spandrels, those
to Shearling Way being one pane deeper than those in Market
Road; sill band to second-floor windows which are similarly
detailed but with segmental pediments instead of cornices;
third-floor windows round-arched with bracketed sills,
panelled spandrels and plain stepped pilasters running up into
the plain frieze; dentil cornice; all windows have sashes of
original design; two hipped roofs running north-south with
panelled and corniced stacks, one to each ridge, and two end
stacks to north.
At the time of inspection, when it was undergoing
refurbishment, the interior retained panelled dadoes, fluted
cast-iron Corinthian column, panelled beam, and cornices.
