Food and drink
There's nothing fancy about the food but it will sustain you between beers. Try the homemade soup of the day with crusty bread (£3.95), the baguettes filled with ham, beef, chicken, crayfish or smoked salmon (£5.95 including salad and chips), or, if you want something healthier, how about Greek salad - feta olives and crusty bread with a mixed leaf salad for £6.45?
The hot steak and stilton baguette with salad and chips is good value at £6.95.
Noisy. Basic. Fun - as long as you don't trip up the steps to the lavatories (which many do).
Give the man money and he will give you beer. It's not much more sophisticated than that.
Broad Street is a major university and tourist through route. The White Horse faces the Sheldonian Theatre and is surrounded by bookshops. Trinity and Balliol colleges are nearby, as is Wadham. You have to like students.
Tables to book
You can't book the table at the back but it's the one everybody covets. You can't miss it (in its own nook at the top of the steps leading up to the lavatories). This is the only place you can hear yourself speak sometimes. People edge closer at the bar until it becomes free and they can pounce.
