The White Horse, Parsons Green
The White Horse is a familiar landmark in Parson's Green, it was one of the last staging posts on the route in and out of London, with quite a bit of history surrounding the pub and its location - it definitely feels a bit rural, even with a tube station just around the corner. It's got a great Victorian interior and a superb sunny spot out in front that borders the actual Green. It's very easy to see why it's been listed in the Good Beer Guide as the eight hand pumps provide an excellent selection of real ales that are well kept and really hit the spot on a lovely afternoon. It has had a reputation in the past as being a bit 'Sloaney' (once known as "the Sloaney Pony"), but we found little evidence of that on our last visit, elbow-to-elbow with a couple of builders at the bar and an older gentleman reading the paper across the way. It's got a very good looking menu, with a pricey list and a selection of cheaper but very tasty bar snacks (we had the mini burgers and a cheese & ham ploughmans), and it does regular barbecues when the weather permits. Very popular in the evenings and especially at weekends, it's an excellent place to go as a destination and we can easily imaging whiling away an afternoon here.
