We searched for somewhere 'local' rather than touristy and found this place not far from Union square. Beers were good and reasonably priced, good background music, a nice buzz and open late. We didn't eat here but it was a really neat touch to have free popcorn to nibble on. Totally gay friendly.

This is a small pub that was dark and noisy. It was rated so highly that we had planned to eat here, but decided after our arrival to just keep looking.

I can't take credit for this quote- it comes from my Dutch son-in-law who laments the lack of "Proper Pubs" in North America. But the White Horse is a proper pub. Really - that is all it is. Don't go expecting amazing food, it is just pub grub, but well done pub grub with large portions. The beer selection is... More

I was with a group and we tried a little of everything. Most entrees came with fries and were served in baskets. My favorites were the fish and chips and the wings sampler plate. The calamari was delicious and so was the caprese salad, which normally comes as a sandwich but we asked for it as a salad and it... More

Got the window table and had a few pints. Mostly locals there, but they didn't seem to mind us tourists.

We didn't eat here but we came here often for a drink. Everyone was friendly, staff and patrons alike. If I lived in San Francisco this would be my hang out spot. Great atmosphere and the bartender, Steve, had great restaurant suggestions. Loved this place!!

I ended up here every night while in San Fran. Beer is nice and cold and the service was excellent. Had wings one night that were very very spicy, but still very good

Free hot dogs and popcorn. I could stop writing right now and be completely satisfied with my five star review. Anyone who serves free hot dogs and popcorn deserves five stars, period. Anyway, White Horse Tavern is a dumpy pub near Union Square. I usually hesitate to try anything near this tourist-ridden area, but I gave old Whitey a chance... More
