A comprehensive menu touches on all the favourites including tasty signature appetisers, crisp healthy salads and arguably the best fish sandwich and pub food in town. There are a variety of island-inspired items too, if you’re feeling adventurous – we recommend conch fritters, avocado rolls or their popular fish tacos. Meanwhile, White Horse regulars will agree that the restaurant’s homemade signature burgers and famous fish and chips are in a class of their own.
White Horse is particularly unique in its locale and decor. Surrounded by the cobblestoned streets and century-worn architecture of Bermuda’s first town, St. George’s, the restaurant was first built in 1782. Although it has since been renovated in 2003 and 2015, it still feels very much as though you have stepped back in time. Rich cedar boards and nautical decorations adorn the walls, and a traditional brick fireplace harks back to simpler days of old. White Horse is conveniently located across from the Town Hall and the infamous Ducking Stool, which was once used to punish female gossips. Nowadays, King’s Square is a populargathering place for locals and tourists and is home to various events, walkabouts and open markets throughout the year.
On fair weather days, dine out on the shady, spacious patio – it’s very kid-friendly and has the added bonus of being waterside, with schools of fish swimming nearby, hopefully awaiting leftovers. Or try their new upper patio overlooking the historic King’s Square and Ducking Stool. There is also a bistro style, waterfront patio area where you can dine under the umbrellas or choose to soak up the sun. During the day, watch as boats of all sizes putter through the harbour and groups of locals bait hooks and cast lines off the bridge. With an inside and outside bar that’s open until late, White Horse is a popular spot for sports enthusiasts who gather to celebrate big games and close wins. And the sports bar provides several large screen TV’s, so you don’t miss that game winning moment. White Horse also hosts very entertaining karaoke and quiz nights during the year, with food specials and happy hour prices available for all to enjoy.
The pub’s bar list is routinely updated with exciting featured wines, both by the glass and by the bottle; feel free to ask for a recommendation, or you can choose from one of their 25 signature cocktails, like the ‘Pink Sand Margarita’, which is truly a favourite and a must-try. Likewise, there’s a very wide selection of draft and bottled beers, both familiarand international, as well as a number of indulgent frozen cocktails, fruity martinis and refreshing margaritas. These drinks pair perfectly with one of the kitchen’s signature appetizers, offered exclusively at White Horse. Our top pick is the Blooming Bermuda Onion, which is generously seasoned, browned until golden and served with the house tzatsiki sauce.
