A locals' pub with an emphasis on TV sports, featuring a fair few screens all round the pub. The bar is to one side at the front, with rooms extending off to the right and rear, where there is a stage but no obvious sign of use. Courtyard garden behind. Beerwise, it had a couple of handpumps with one ale on at time of visit, the rather nice El Toro wheat ale from Butcombe, so could be worth checking out for interesting brews.

The White Horse is a bit of a shabby pub with a front bar and large room to the left that has minimal furniture and a DJ booth. At the rear of the bar area is a pool table and a couple of advertised events are the Tuesday night quiz and karaoke on Sunday nights. The bar is stocked with standard draught and one of the two hand pumps was unused leaving Young’s London Gold as the ale option.
Out the back is a covered smoking area with a couple of picnic tables.

This isn’t a pub that I will seek out again because although it wasn’t unfriendly there was an undercurrent that left me thinking that there are better pubs in the area.

The Wonkey Donkey, as it's known locally, is a large corner pub right in the centre of Rainham. Whiel not an elegent place, it has a reputation for trouble which is largely undeserved. It is a local pub, on teh whole welcoming and while a bit rough around the edges, no worse than many other pubs in the area. It has a large single bar with wooden parquet floors, with a function room adjacent, although on this visit the latter seemed to be being used as storage. There are the usual tv screens and gaming machines, dated furniture and loud regulars. Only one ale on, Young's Bitter, which was in good condition and well kept. The landlord was convivial and the atmoshpere was friendly. It's a typical down-market high street pub of a type which is rapidly disappearing, so it is a thing worth preserving. I am happy to drop in for the odd pint when passing or when hiding from Mrs A.
