Some Great Traditional Pubs in London, England (5)

The White Horse
1-3 Parson’s Green, SW6 4UL

Located in an imposing white-painted Victorian building, The White Horse features wood and flagstone floors and open fires,  comfy sofas and tables and chairs at the front of the pub, plenty of standing room round the central polished mahogany bar, and a dining area beyond the kitchen at the back of the house. Stylish contemporary lighting adds to the ambience of what is otherwise a fine traditional pub.


The White Horse has a deserved reputation for serving both fine food and having an array of well kept beers, both on draught and in bottle. It leans toward the gastro-pub designation with very fine fare such as a pink and meaty rack of lamb or a  large fresh salmon and dill fish cake with a lemon mayonnaise sauce and a rocket and onion salad but, there is still plenty of good atmosphere to soak up along with the fine cask ales.
Usually on tap, are three very well recognized quality cask ales, Oakham JHB from Cambridgeshire,  Adnams Broadside from Suffolk and Rooster’s Yankee from Harrogate, Yorkshire.  The peppery hop bitterness in JHB dances a merry tune across my appreciative palate as I savour this distinctive bitter ale, a former CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain.
