The White Horse Tavern

"America's Oldest Tavern". On the National Historic Register, The White Horse Tavern was originally constructed in 1652, and the once private residence was converted to a tavern in the year 1673. Meticulously restored these colonial dining rooms showcase real American ingenuity, with wide plank floor and exposed beamed ceilings. While dining by candlelight and roaring fireplaces you get a feel for the past. Serving contemporary American cuisine that shows all that local Rhode Island farms have to offer. Unique. Romantic. Fun.

"Loud, and very slow compared to some of the other tables. Food selection and options somewhat sub par. Just a little disappointing."

"We had a wonderful dinner at The White Horse Tavern. The restaurant is a beautiful old well maintained building with a fire burning in the fireplace. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was fabulous!! A great place for a special meal."

"My wife and I had brunch at the White Horse Tavern last Sunday. She ordered the lobster omelet and I had eggs benedict. The food was tasty, but it took over 45 minutes for our food to arrive once ordered. This is the first time I have experienced this problem at the Tavern, so we'll be back."

"I asked our server, Dominick, if there was any possibility to have an item that wasn't on the lunch menu. I asked for the beef wellington, the Chef and dominick made it happen, and it was amazing. Other than the beef Wellington we asked Dominick to basically pick our meal and to have the Chef cook it the way he would like it....it was amazing. Dominick provided excellent wine pairing and the cost was surprisingly reasonable."

"My family and I had never been to the White Horse Tavern even though we are life long residents of Rhode Island. I had read an article in Yankee Magazine about the White Horse Burger Night and thought it would be a fun family night. The burgers were excellent and the atmosphere one of historical significance. The wine was excellent too!!!"

"We had brunch the day after a large snow storm and the room was lightly populated and we had a table right next to the fireplace. The food was very good and the service was also attentive.
On our next trip to Newport we will visit them again.

"My husband and I went for a special occasion. I put "birthday dinner" in the comments section when I booked the reservation. I not sure if it was because of that or not but we got a private alcove room on the first floor for just us. It was romantic and nice to be separate.
Food was delicious. Service was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!"

"This is the oldest tavern that has been continuously working as a restuarant in the US. Ambience takes you back to prerevolution days. Food is excellent. Lobster BLT salad is out of this world. We went as five adults with two small children. They prepared a table for us in a separate room which was great for us and for the other guests.
The wall lamp in the room was broken so perhaps the owners need to do a little better maintenance.
Service was excellent.
We live in Newport and had been to this restaurant many times and each time has been a great experience.

"We chose WHT as a last minute dinner reservation (we wanted to eat at one of Newports top 10 restaurants (by zaggat) and this was the only one that had a day-of reserv- albeit at 9:15pm on a Sat). We were pleasantly surprised with the cozy tavern ambiance. Tables were a little crowded (but we were a table for 2 so were in the corner) Huge fireplaces made for a really nice environment. Our waiter was excellent, knowledgeable, made great conversation, gave us recommendations, as did our bus girl- who was also superb. Portions were generous which is nice at a pricey place- not a spoon sized entree! Duck was wonderful and the Cheesecake desert is a must!! All in all will definitely return and give major props to the caliber of waiters and bussers at this restaurant!"

"This is still one of the great places to go in Newport or all of New England for that matter. You can't beat dinner in the nations oldest tavern (1673!). The place is not quite as 5 star as it used to be when service was at its peak, but food and service are both still excellent and the colonial atmosphere is unique indeed. The WHT is particularly awesome in the winter when the fireplaces are going strong."

"We had great table by fire place. Chris our waiter was very attentive and professional. Our first table was not so great by the hostess accommodated our request on a busy night to get a better table and it was a perfect evening. We both ordered steak dishes and the meat was cooked perfectly."

"We wanted to have dinner at the WHT for some time and we're glad we did. The food and service were great and it was a great experience having dinner in a very historic location. The food is pricey but that's to be expected."

"Over the past 20 years, we have enjoyed lunch and dinner with great anticipation. The menu is limited, but we are hard pressed to find something we don't want to taste. The sweet potato puree with fresh chicken stock was great. My clams were quite tasteful."
