A pop-up pub has been created to help save an inn in Kimpton.

The event, in support of The White Horse, was held on Friday, March 31, in the village's Dacre Rooms.

In 2014, the pub was sold by McMullen's brewery and has since had two change-of-use applications rejected.


The event was the second pop-up-pub event organised in support of the 'Save Our White Horse' campaign.

Beer was supplied by 'The Three Brewers of St Albans' with live music, a book signings and representatives of Saffron Walden's 'The Railway Arms' present.

The Railway Arms underwent a similar situation to that currently faced by The White Horse, surviving thanks to a successful campaign.

Chair of the 'Save Our White Horse' campaign, Ian Neilson, said: "It was great to get their feedback, advice and insight on how we might replicate their success at The White Horse.

"After seeing our community in action last night, they share our optimism for The White Horse as a community owned pub."

Campaign member Cherry Maslen added: "We're very grateful to all who helped make this night such a resounding success.

"The event was buzzing and our visitors almost drank us dry.

"This response indicates what huge local support our campaign is continuing to attract."
