The White Horse Tavern
Stop by The White Horse Tavern and listen to the many great stories Bartender John Begin has to share.

It’s hard to imagine what the The White Horse Tavern has seen, experienced or been host to since 1673 when it opened here in Newport, RI.

The new world was an unruly collection of English colonies, and colonial Newport was particularly harsh with long frigid winters, no heat, electricity or other modern conveniences.

The White Horse was a regular haunt for Colonists, British soldiers, Hessian mercenaries, pirates, sailors, founding fathers, some say ghosts and many others.

The building and some of the atmosphere of The White Horse Tavern still has that Pre-American Revolution “feel”. It pairs nicely with the outstanding new world service and delicious culinary options.

Most are aware at just how special The White Horse Tavern​ is and how lucky we all are to have living history in our own backyard, but when’s the last time you visited?

Here’s a new video that was recently completed for The White Horse Tavern. After watching this video, you’ll find yourself making plans to head to America’s Oldest Tavern asap!

 

The White Horse Tavern is located at 26 Marlborough Street in Newport, RI.
