Small Independent Family Company
We started in 2011 when we bought the The Walrus Bar and Hostel. We were extremely lucky in being able to put together a great team of people, and set about trying to create above all else a warm and friendly atmosphere. The simple idea is that if we could make people have fun then we would have fun doing it… The Walrus has been a great success and now we have been able to expand to our second site...
We overtook The Horse in 2013, once bright red, it is now bright blue :) and with the addition of budget hostel accommodation upstairs it was only natural to change the pub's name into The Horse & Stables!
We took on an ambitious project with this second site, and now - after 3 years in the making, the venue is fully renovated, re-decorated and completely re-imagined! We've done an awful lot of the building and decorating work ourselves... We love every corner of this place and we sure are real proud of the results of hard work!
A lot of the original classy pub features were left untouched, while we injected quite a bit of our own personality and taste into the decor. We love comfortable and vintage furniture and so we made some bold statements with wall paints and our beloved giant crystal chandelier! ;)
We have a great new team at The Horse, with the same philosophy as our award winning sister pub the Walrus (voted best staff in an accommodation in Western Europe). We always say that the staff do their best to help you with everything in the bar and hostel and everything we can outside it…. You will not find a more helpful and friendly bunch of people! :) :) :)
We love beer and good food. A perfect place to start, especially running a pub, we have devised our drinks & food menu according to what we like... Be rest assured, we are convinced you will like our products too! Four weekly rotating cask ales on tap, an extensive selection of bottled beer from all over the world (with a particular flavour for Belgian) and a decent variety of whiskey...
