Holme’s White Horse pub appoints new head chef Ian Daw ready for May’s grand reopening





A coastal pub has appointed a new head chef, ready for its grand reopening at the end of next month.

Ian Daw, who grew up in Surrey, was recently hired at the White Horse in Holme, which is currently undergoing a “stunning” refurbishment.

Stepping up to the role, he plans to bring his years of hospitality experience, having started in the industry at the age of 16, to his menus ready for the pub to open again in May.

“I’m passionate about local produce and seasonality,” Ian said.

“Having met some fabulous local producers, I’m in awe of the wonders that the North Norfolk coast will bring to my menu and ultimately put on the plate for my diners.”

The White Horse was recently purchased by award-winning hospitality group Anglian Country Inns (ACI), which took an interest in the 18th-century property because of its history and natural surroundings, making it a pub which they believe perfectly fits into the ACI brand.

Once open, there will be an in-house bakery in the barn across the yard for baking bread, pastries and more.

Howard Nye, operations director for ACI, said: “Exciting times ahead at White Horse, Holme-next-the-Sea.

“We have a state-of-the-art kitchen for Ian to create in and we are more than delighted to have him on board.”
