At the White Horse, you will only ever find the freshest Pilsner Urquell being served. The large copper tanks you see inside our newly refurbished pub house the fresh unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell beer brought directly from the cellars in Plzeň.

In the words of the Pilsner Brewmaster Vaclav Berka, “Beer is the best in the cellar of the brewery.” That’s where it’s going to be at its freshest and why visiting the brewery is the place to go to get the tastiest beer. But not everyone can get to Plzeň (though you should try!), so we work with the brewery to make sure the beer we serve at the White Horse is the freshest it can be!


Direct from the brewery in Plzeň, Czech Republic, to your table at White Horse, “Pilsner Urquell tank beer is from the start to the end – to the glass – the best condition that we’re able to achieve,” says Vaclav. The beer that goes into the tanks is unpasteurised, meaning it must be drunk faster than pasteurised beer – the shelf-life for tank beer is just 21 days from leaving the brewery, and only 5 days once the tank is first opened, so you can guarantee that a pint of tank Pilsner Urquell tastes as close to cellar beer as we can achieve. That freshness means you get a fuller flavour and a deeper taste.

Pilsner Urquell meaning ‘Pilsner from the original source’ was first brewed 1842 by Brew Master Josef Groll. The brewing process and recipe have remained unchanged for 175 years, using the same local ingredients and brewed the same way in the same place since 1842. It’s a perfect balance of fuller flavours with a stunning clean finish.
