Sloaney Pony serves up a treat and no chinos in sight

This was a Thursday night dinner with 2 friends who work in a very well known night club in Chelsea. Both awesome aussie girls resulting in one of the most funny evenings I’ve had in a long time. Aussie Girl #1 suggests The White Horse for a Fulham pub dinner. I have never eaten here and so was curious to see how the food compared to its rivals on the P Green triangle.
We sat in the candlelit back ‘restaurant’ and got stuck into the bread basket and drinks...half an hour of gossiping, hilarious drunken stories and giggling later we ordered from the diverse menu (there was also an impressive specials board which included pheasant, steak and salmon).
The food was proper, hearty pub grub- I had a venison pie with mash which was the perfect choice considering the sub zero temperatures outside. Aussie girl #1 had the sea bass, which she said was delicious, and Aussie girl #2 had the duck salad (she is dieting, much to the annoyance of the waitress who was repeatedly asked for various sauces on the side, the least calorific drink and a sugar supplement-her patience knew no bounds.)
The drinks flowed, the conversation become more lurid, the tummy’s became fuller and we became increasingly merrier, so there was no question that another round of drinks and pud was ordered (a peppermint tea for driving Aussie #2). The pudding was decadent and without question freshly home made- I shared the crumble with Aussie #1 which was a bit too sweet for my liking but the custard was very good.
We left full, fat and very happy and not bankrupt- one of the most pleasant surprises of this girls dinner was the bill, a very reasonable £24 each...big thumbs up to the not so sloaney pony.
