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.

"We love this place and the fact that it's slightly off the beaten path in Newport. Great history, fantastic wine and food, and the seats by the fireplace in the bar can't be beat. We come as often as possible."

"We celebrate my husband 's birthday every year in Newport. We always visit the White Horse Tavern. On February, the fireplace warms the room and the ambience is romantic and secluded. Of course, the food and service is excellent. A nice escape from the more crowded Newport restaurant scene."

"This should be the #1 pick for diners who are history buffs. Every aspect of the dining rooms reek of an era gone by, with gigantic blazing fireplaces, dark beams, wide plank flooring and lantern lighting. But don't assume the menu is all about cod and Indian pudding ! I was pleased to see several totally on-trend items, at decent prices, on the luncheon menu, especially the Duck Scotch Egg appetizer, which was revelatory. Priced at a hefty $12 for one egg, it nevertheless was a taste sensation. Lobster BLTs ($20) are good, not great, due to too many diced out-of-season tomatoes where lobster should have been. Service was also good, not great, but my visit was on a slow weekday, so excusable. I'd like to return for dinner, on a weekend, to experience this rightfully renowned tavern in full swing."

"Went with three friends for brunch and had an excellent time. Scotch Duck Egg was delicious as was the crispy pork belly Eggs Benedict. Only issue may have been limited menu, including the lack of Eggs Benedict that does not feature ham/pork (as one of my friends does not eat pork). Otherwise, it was a terrific meal and experience."

"I've been to the White Horse several times and have always found the food to be very good. This time we sat at the bar before dinner and really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and the discussion with the bartender and others at the bar. In fact the bartender recommended a restaurant for us to try in town and we loved it.
The fireplace and dining rooms always make for a comfortable meal. I would definitely come back to sit at the bar and have a drink and then venture to the dining room for dinner."

"I love the White Horse for the historical aspect. As a pirate historian and reenactor I can close my eyes and almost see Thomas Tew and company around me. Maybe it never happened but I'd like to think it did."

"Although the tavern still has its charm as a historic landmark, the dining experience was nothing to rave about. The staff seemed disinterested in their guests, and just going about their business. Portions were rather small, and flavor was nonexistent, more or less diner quality. The house clam chowder was free of clams, plenty of potato and carrot. The lobster bisque, honestly, would have had more flavor if it were bought at the local grocery. Sorry folks, but it's time to hire a new executive chef."

"Definitely has an historical feel! Beautifully maintained structure with several different dining rooms, 2 bars and numerous fire places. A perfect place for lunch on a cold day. Burgers were great. Lobster salad BLT was hearty. Lobster bisque was just "ok". Duck Scotch Eggs were unique and prepared beautifully."

"We went to the White Horse Tavern for the first time on Friday night, my boyfriend's birthday. At least TWO people had told us to make sure we went there. I made reservations and asked online for a table near the fireplace and they had it all set up and waiting when we arrived.
The food was all delicious. I had the lobster mac and cheese as an ENTREE and STILL could not finish it, amazing. He had the snapper with root veggies and there was nothing left of that fish at the end!
Really loved the building, the atmosphere.....all lent to a very romantic evening on a very romantic weekend away in Newport during the Winter Festival. We plan to make this weekend an annual event !"

"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."
