A quick visit after a long while to try and find a particular bottled beer they claim to stock. After asking at the bar (‘not heard of it’) we then found a printed menu, new and crisp, which listed it. Taking it back to the bar resulted in a half-arsed search (and it wasn’t like they were busy at this point, three staff sat around doing nowt) which drew a predictable blank and no faint apology as to having something listed as available that they clearly haven’t had in for some time. Anyway on a baking hot day I decided to try one of the plethora of ales - Saltaire Titus - which was a real let-down (NBSS 2) and given the complete lack of any ale being sold, perhaps this was no surprise but even so, no effort to maintain freshness was disappointing. A new (for me) feature spotted was an ostentatious tank of Pilsner Urquell which I decided would be a better bet and it was. Left feeling that this place has let its previous high standards drop quite badly. Shame.

November 2011
Revisited the Sloany Pony for their annual Old Ales festival. Some fantastic choices and the pub is as good as I remembered last time. John Stapleton propping up the bar at the far end, so minor celebrity customers too. Rated 9

Sept 2009
The ‘Sloany Pony’ is a long-established ale haven, located in a cosy corner of Parsons Green. It’s quite a striking Victorian edifice, though the interior has been largely stripped out. There are six real ales, with Harveys Best seemingly a guest with the others changing frequently. There’s also an impressive array of posh keg beer (Sierra Nevada), bottled beers from around the world, ciders and wine; more than enough to keep the discerning punter happy. Prices can be quite variable; the Harveys is cheaper than you’d find in most other London ale outlets but the more unusual brews can be relatively expensive; ask before you order is my advice (especially with the keg stuff). The quality, however, is always top-notch. There’s a nice outside terrace that is popular, a nice place to watch the world go by. Inevitably a word about the punters – yes, they are often quite amusingly stereotypes but most are harmless and often provide unintentional entertainment. Staff are friendly and well-versed in the wares the pub sells. There are specialized beer festivals throughout the year but also expect to see specialized prices as well – at least they can justify them given the excellent sourcing of unusual brews. Gets very busy whenever Fulham or Chelsea are at home. Overall, this is a ‘must-do’ London pub, easily in the capital’s top 10. Rated 9

A top real ale destination pub, very popular with a decent area out the front for open air drinking.The bar has two flanks with the right handside leading to a restaurant,while the left hand side ends in a banquetted snug with fireplace and stairs up to a first floor lounge with it's own small bar which can be hired for a private party.The decor is more modern that I remember it,but still retains enough of a pub atmosphere to be enjoyable.Seating space remains at a premium.The chalk board lists both the real ale and craft keg options,many of the real ales are doubled clipped around the bar but there were still six ales to choose from on my Sunday afternoon trip including Vale Gravitas in absolutely top condition.There are copper tanks of Pilsener Urquell in the front bar,an unusual feature.The clientele was a mixed bunch on my visit,and the nickname of The Sloany Pony didn't seem a fair reflection of who was in after a match at Craven Cottage.The best pub of my tour of the area,very close to the Underground station and well worth a revisit for decent real ale.

Most of London's craft beer pubs are pretty much in short trousers compared to the White Horse which has been selling beers, many of them pale and hoppy, from the microbrewery scene for 20-odd years now. A recent return visit, coinciding with the 'Over the Hop' beer festival, revealed that it's still on top of its game.

I counted 13 handpumps, but there may have been 1 or 2 more. Fans of the London craft scene will be pleased to know that Beavertown and Siren featured among the taps. Knowledgeable lager drinkers should note that this is one of the pubs serving Pilsener Urquell tank beer - I'm told it's pretty good, but the ale was in such great nick, that I saw no need to sample it. Prices are reasonable (by 2014 standards) at £3.60 - £4 for ales and £5 - £6 for the kegs.

The pub itself was reasonably busy and does permit the reservation of tables so, if I'd not got invited onto one of these, I might not have been quite so positive. However, there's also a large patio at the front, looking onto the Green, which fits in a fair crowd (who can, unfortunately, get a little barbecue-smoked on a fine evening).

It had been a while since my last visit, but I'm now reminded just what a fine pub The White Horse is and a swift return is definitely called for.
