Description: The SceneThe literary-minded tourists and the local lushes who haunt this joint on weekends know that Dylan Thomas may have been Welsh but it was the scotch that killed him. At the site of his debauched death, various portraits of the poet hang on the dark-paneled walls while indifferent regulars focus on the task at hand: The White Horse has stayed in operation since 1880 by serving its customers--before Thomas and after--one drink at a time.The FoodIn our health-conscious century, though, we know it's as likely to be the pub grub as the booze that does you in. Nonetheless, White Horse's full-flavored burgers, delectable grilled chicken sandwich and slab-cut fries are worthy of poetic excesses--and perhaps even early death. The appetizer classics, leaning heavily on the common denominator of "fried," range from excellent (amply stuffed potato skins and sharp jalapeno poppers) to uninspired (lukewarm buffalo wings).

We had an excellent lunch while vacationing in NYC. The waitress was great and when we told her we had a time constraint to get to another attraction, she made sure to get our food out quickly. She kept our waters full as it was a hot day and we had just spent the morning at Ellis Island. Great experience and great food. Thank you!

After a long day visiting the City we wanted simple pub food. This was just the place: Good atmosphere, the bartender worked both the bar and floor (there were 2 so it wasn’t slow service) and the selection of food we were looking for. Buffalo chicken was very good- not messy and had the right heat. Burgers were flavorful and the French fries were nice- not double dipped and seasoned appropriately. Good place to camp at the bar (we ate but not at the bar) lots to choose from the beer selection. Would repeat

I walked past this little restaurant and it said there was a lunch special so I came in to check it out. It was the lunch crowd and so it was full but I got a place at the bar and was served quickly. It seemed to be a family run place and the owner/bartender/waiter seemed to know a lot of people who were coming in. Very pleasant environment, small with a long wooden bar and a few tables.

Walking back uptown we came across a delightful corner pub. Started out with a shot of bourbon. Burgers were amazingly cooked to perfection. Added a cold brew to the meal. Friendly welcoming staff made us feel that they would see us again soon. The place gets noisy when the after work comes in.

They have an extensive beer list, but very little available. When we were there were no bottles and a few draught beers. There's little by the way of air conditioning, which is probably fine most of the year, but when we visited it was stifling. All that said it is an historic old pub with a good ambience.
