General Info
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).

Old haunted eatery...

...has your basic diner eats surrounded by images of white horses and Dylan Thomas, who apparition supposedly still haunts the premises.

Great Pub and outdoor setting

White Horse Burgers are great and with the addition of a beer outside, it makes for a great afternoon

No appeal whatsoever

Maybe it had more charm back in the day, but the only reason I can come up with for why Dylan Thomas chose to drink himself into oblivion at this place is that he was too drunk to drag himself someplace better. The beer is fine, but the food is mediocre, and you may well have time to drink yourself to death before you get a table on a summer night.
