Probably not an ideal place for a full session, but great for a pint or two. Take in the historic 'Dylan Thomas' room, enjoy the atmosphere, etc. We didn't eat, but just had a few drinks. Kind of a tourist spot, but a low-key one.

My friend's drink bottle had what appeared to be excrement on it! Potatoes were grey and food in general was very poor. Whilst a mild complaint was made, the waitress was very rude and defensive. This seems like an ok place for a beer, however...More

Great time mid summer having a few drinks. Ideal walk along the Hudson River either from Union Square or from the World Trade Centre

The White Horse Tavern is popular with British tourists because of it's connection with Dylan Thomas. I can understand if you work in a place like this you might get fed up of, 'sightseers' who don't spend any money. But as someone who obviously didn't...More

As a Welshman,I looked forward to going for a drink in the famous White Horse where the poet Dylan Thomas drank regularly in his final years. We were 'greeted' by a rotund gentleman who was in the middle of having a rather heated domestic argument...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

The SceneThe literary-minded tourists and the local lushes who haunt this joint on weekends know that Dylan Thomas may have been Welsh but it was the scotch that killed him. At the site of his debauched death, various portraits of the poet hang on the dark-paneled walls while indifferent regulars focus on the task at hand: The White Horse has stayed in operation since 1880 by serving its customers--before Thomas and after--one drink at a time.The FoodIn our health-conscious century, though, we know it's as likely to be the pub grub as the booze that does you in. Nonetheless, White Horse's full-flavored burgers, delectable grilled chicken sandwich and slab-cut fries are worthy of poetic excesses--and perhaps even early death. The appetizer classics, leaning heavily on the common denominator of "fried," range from excellent (amply stuffed potato skins and sharp jalapeno poppers) to uninspired (lukewarm buffalo wings).
