It is a charming bar which attempts to replicate an old tavern feel, this amused me as i'm from Edinburgh and have the real thing. However the staff were great and made me welcome from the minute i walked in. Its a small intimate place so be prepared to chat with everyone. Only downside was it's limited drinks however it...

This is a great place! After foot slogging around the mountainous San Francisco downtown all day I stumbled into the White Horse, eager for a coldie. I was not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and quick to serve.

The pub is quite dark inside and is connected to the Beresford Hotel, as a result quite a few of the clientele are from the hotel. The pub offers food every evening, but currently only popcorn and hot dogs on Sunday and Monday, which are free, due to a staff shortage. The bar is pretty small and most of the... More

Went for cocktails while staying at the Beresford Hotel next door. Service was way below average and this was during a slow time of day. Cannot comment on food since we did not eat.

Music isn't blaring so you can actually have a conversation. Bartenders are friendly. Prices are pretty good for downtown SF.

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.
