A much-loved community pub in the heart of an "affluent" Cambridgeshire village has been listed as being up for let. The White Horse, in Eaton Socon, has been closed since April.

The venue is being listed by pub company Stonegate Group who describe it as "very popular" with local clientele. The listing added that it was "an incredible opportunity" with "fantastic potential" for an experienced publican.

The pub reportedly dates back to the early 18th century and was mentioned in the Charles Dickens book 'Nicholas Nickelby'. Over the years, it has been praised by customers for its food, staff and atmosphere.

A statement from the listing said: "The White Horse is a popular community pub in the affluent village of Eaton Socon. The public house is very popular with local clientele through its food offering and used to run a very successful carvery.

"The cosy interior creates a relaxing atmosphere for the customers for dining with the ability to create separate spaces for a restaurant. The large beer garden to the rear of the building provides extra seating during the warmer months, and the outside bandstand allows further entertainment during the summer.

"The publican also has the potential to expand the business further with the option of letting accommodation and private dining or meetings."
