51. The White Horse Pub, Parsons Green, London, England

30 11 2016

IMG_4919.JPGWe took the tube out to Parsons Green. We met good friends Alison and Andrew for dinner. The service was good and the food was delicious. I was also excited by some of the beer choices – for the first time in London. I went for the standard: fish and chips with mushy pees. Sometimes I wonder about the list and how a place made the cut. This place is a little out of the square mile, and in many ways an average (though slightly better than, and with a decent beer menu) pub. Don’t get me wrong, we had a great time and it was a cool little trip out to Parsons Green. We got wine at the store and drank it on the tube on the ride back to our hotel. Like all of London, you can feel the history, and you find yourself looking at the mahogany wood work and wondering who else has sat in the same spot. How does a pub last 300 years in an industry where businesses come and go in months?
