The White Horse

Squaremeal Review of The White Horse ?

It’s relatively common in north London – a popular pub undergoes a glam gastro makeover, which either results in local fanfare or utter disaster. Hampstead’s White Horse has endured many of these ill-advised revamps over the years, but none so distinct as the recent transformation into a ‘bar and lounge’ by the former proprietor of the Sofitel Hotel in Beirut. The food has certainly improved. A concise Lebanese menu of traditional meze and dishes including grilled halloumi, falafel and spicy batata harra makes excellent sharing food, and the sticky pistachio-topped baklava to finish adds a lovely, light touch. You’ll find drawbacks, however: there’s no wine list; a huge TV blares distracting fashion channels; the dining area is awkwardly indistinct; and flimsy paper menus spoil any sophisticated intentions. The potential is evident, but with plenty of Lebanese competition hereabouts the White Horse needs to pull out the stops to convince local diners.
