The buildings in this area have changed their numbers on several occasions, in 1878 the "White Horse" was listed as being number 75 and 76 and at the time were being knocked into one to make the one house. In 1960 the house numbers changed once again, the pub changing from 198 to 83.

The building is considered to be of 16th or 17th century and according to the book the Inns of Canterbury by Edward Wilmot, 1988, was scheduled to become an ancient monument at that time.

The pub unfortunately closed in 1969.
