The White Horse on London’s Parson’s Green has been named the UK’s top pub in a poll of over 500 industry experts compiled by the Morning Advertiser. Voters singled the White Horse, a Mitchells & Butlers pub, out for its food and unrivalled range of unusual beers, which customers are encouraged to try with their meal instead of wine. Licensee Mark Dorber, who has been at the pub for 25 years, beat off stiff competition from other well-known pubs that have already notched up a number of accolades as well as a few undiscovered gems. Two other London pubs made the top ten, namely The Churchill Arms in Kensington, which was runner up to the White Horse, and The Punch Tavern on Fleet Street at number four. Norwich’s The Fat Cat placed third, while The Square and Compass in Worth Matravers, Dorset, polled fifth. Last year’s winner, the Rose & Crown in Warwick, came in at number 10 this year.
