SquareMeal Review of The White Horse

If you don’t mind mixing with the clientele after whom the ‘Sloaney Pony’ takes its nickname, you’ll find this former coaching inn on the corner of Parsons Green a near-perfect old-school boozer. Open fires, leather sofas, a grand dark-wood bar and elegant modern dining room set the scene. The pub’s obvious devotion to beer means that even the most dedicated of real ale drinkers will find something new to try. Among the eight changing cask ales, happy encounters with Harveys Best or Adnams Broadside might await, and the 150-strong list of bottles features everything from Trappist beers to American IPAs. Classic pub grub forms the basis of the menu – think pork, apple and leek terrine, chicken and onion pie and sticky toffee pudding – and all dishes are paired with their own beer suggestions. Summer sees the outside terrace come alive, but be aware that the whole venue can get overcrowded on Chelsea FC match days.

Such a shame, everything about this place says it should be an excellent gastropub. The place is lovely and upstairs restaurant is very cosy and makes you feel like you’d want to stay for hours. The beer list is stunning (both lagers and ales), the white list is exactly what you want, good choice and good value. Then comes the food. Oh dear, such a shame. You read the menu and you are aching to try the food, as everything sounds fantastic. Really good hearty British dishes. But having been twice in the past few months (the second time was because we hoped the first would be a blip and we wanted it to be good) I feel that the kitchen just isn’t capable of producing the quality of food that the place deserves. The most recent time we went, we were with a group of mates and all of us were left a little disappointed by what we had eaten. I had the pork belly with mash. The pork belly was ok, though I suggest the meat wasn’t top quality as it was lacking flavour. The mash was poor at best, lumpy, watery and under seasoned to the point where it was tasteless. My girlfriend had the breaded lamb breast. It was revolting. It had been fried to crisp up the breadcrumbs but this just left it very greasy. Having complained to the waiter, he immediately took it away and allowed her to chose something else. His comment was, sorry it’s not a great dish. Having given this place a second chance, I will definitely be back to drink their beers but never to eat again. Quite how square meal gave this a star is beyond me, usually they are spot on and I’ve not been let down before. Perhaps they were fooled by the potential this place has? Such a shame.
