Ye Old White Horse

A Traditional English Pub in the Heart of London

Classic West End pub featuring live sport, cold beer, and good times, Ye Old White Horse is a local pub with local supporters of London teams, and a bit of Irish craic.


Tucked into a quiet nook in the heart of Holborn, Ye Old White Horse is a traditional London pub in the centre of Dickensian London with a lively atmosphere, attentive service, and historic surrounds.

The pub is located in one of the few buildings in the local vicinity to have survived the great Edwardian clearance scheme at the start of the twentieth century. In fact, a pub has been on these premises for over 200 years, with the cellar dating back to the 16th Century.

Join the lively banter in the  al-fresco space in front of the pub, or cozy up with a pint in the back nook, where Charles Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick may have done the same.
