Trotting into Exchange Place near Liverpool Street is The White Horse. A lighter, airier (and by no means “old man”) pub with a bit of rustic style, it's a pleasant place to sip a pint ... or to grab a bite.
Londonist swung by for an early brekkie (available from 7.30am) and very much enjoyed our plate of field mushrooms and poached egg on toast (£5.50). Non-morning menu items include fancified offerings such as cured ham with celeriac remoulade, salt beef and horse radish dumplings, braised oxtail with mashed potato and tarragon gravy and more. Coffee was plenty fine as well, but as this is a pub review, we're happy to mention there's a commendable and varied range of keg beers such as Sierra Nevada, Schremser, Stiegl, Meantime and Brooklyn Lager.
A spacious terrace, comfy seating (workbenches, sofas and reclaimed furniture) and friendly service stand out in the memory of our invited visit, and we'd be amenable to re-visiting.
The White Horse is located at 2 Exchange Place, Appold Street, EC2M 2QS. Visit www.geronimo-inns.co.uk/thewhitehorse for details.
