Set up like an old pub, it may actually be old as it is connected to an old hotel. The service was quite good. I had two dinners there and the food was good. The prices were very reasonable. The only drawbacks was it was darker than I would have liked (many restaurants are) and the menu was somewhat limited.... More

We popped in here for a late dinner on a Saturday night after returning from Yosemite. We were tired and hungry, glad to be off the road and The White Horse was down the street from our hotel. It was crowded, mostly young people,(College kids?), under staffed, (the bartender was doing double duty as a server), and really noisy. But... More

Both hubby and i had the steak meal here after the place was recommended by someone to us during our stay in san fran. Meal was a great price and the steak was perfect, better than what we have had at more fancier places. Loved the wings and the building itself is great (blunderbuss on the wall). Service also very...

Fun place, old and quaint. This is a neat place to visit for a drink, one of the oldest pubs in SF. It is old but has lots of character like and English pub.

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.
