Located in the town of St. Georges, this pub is one of the oldest in all of Bermuda. The atmosphere is casual, comfortable, and packed with rich history. Outdoor seating is right on the water, with a view so perfect you can see fish weaving around docked sailboats. If you’re looking for a view of the game, the indoor sports bar is your place to be. The menu is extensive, with options ranging from bar and pub all the way to seafood. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I ate at White Horse, the waiter gave us bread to feed the fish. If you’re lucky enough, they might do the same for you.
