A tiny little pub on Broad Street with not enough room for the proverbial cat, but it's fun and cosy. For those that can remember Morse this is an iconic pub but notwithstanding that the food is good and the atmosphere is great.

Ended our Morse tour here. It can be a very tight squeeze as the tours come in to view cast photos, but a very friendly pub with good beer.

After some consideration, I chose to try the food at The White Horse. As you enter, you know you are entering a building full of English history and charm. It feels very British to be there, and as a day-tourist from London, it felt perfect!...More

Diane & I dropped in on the recommendation of a "local" and weren't disappointed. The beer was excellent - obviously well kept/served and very much in the spirit of Inspector Morse (scenes were evidently filmed here)
