Tasty Meal

The food here is very reasonable in price and the meals are a good size. Service is friendly and the bar is very warm on a cold day.

Old English Pub situated in the heart of SF. One of the oldest pubs in town, this little gem is a must for any tourist wanting to get a taste of a typical english drinking establishment. Bearing in mind it's location and being part of the Beresford Hotel, the beer prices were the cheapest we found. The food was traditional... More

We stopped for a nice break here after being on foot all day touring San Francisco. I had the Sierra Nevada beer and it was great.

The two of us stopped in for dinner at around 815. There were plenty of folks at the bar and seating on the side and along the back wall left side with the long shuffleboard game opposite on the right side. I had the Adobo Chicken salad and my companion the chicken sandwich. I must say the combination of the... More

We were booked into the hotel Beresford and enjoyed the attached pub. If you are a people watcher this local pub is a gem. The food was good too and the beer a good price for craft beer. Has a British flare with a suffle board. The wait staff and bar tenders work non stop and do a great job... More

My friends and I stopped in for drinks at The White Horse. What a fun place! The drinks were great, and we were served quite quickly. The popcorn hit the spot and went well with our shuffleboard game. I would recommend a stop off at this friendly San Francisco pub!

The White Horse restaurant and tavern might fool you as you walk by seeming like it was just a bar, but they have a quaint area to dine in. This place reminds me of an English pub and has the same feel as one. Draft beers in pints and a shuffle board table to play on. Food was good, had... More

We stayed in SF in May and also used the Hotel Beresford as our hotel of choice. Attached to the hotel is this restaurant/pub. We ate here every morning (breakfast was free and included in our package deal). The food at breakfast was lovely and plentiful. In addition, we chose to eat in this restaurant several nights not only because... More

the decor is that of of an old New England tavern, with warn dark wood all around. We were there with the after work crowd so it was a bit noisy. The service was a bit on the slow side especially since there were only a few tables occupied (most of the crowd was around the bar or shuffle-board). The... More
