White Horse Tavern
The White Horse Tavern
est. 1673

At the White Horse Tavern, we strive to create a fresh, contemporary culinary experience in “America’s Oldest Tavern.”

Originally opened in 1673, our restaurant exudes colonial charm, but we are anything but dated. Executive Chef and Rhode Island native Rich Silvia brings a wealth of culinary experience and passion to the kitchen. In our historic dining rooms, enjoy his sophisticated and local cuisine along with extensive wine pairings from around the world. Join us for a taste of 21st century Rhode Island in a colonial tavern that’s been serving locals and visitors for over 350 years.

From Local Farms and Waters since 1673

Like the generations before us, we offer the freshest fish, clams and lobsters directly from Narragansett Bay, along with just-picked produce, artisan cheese, honey, prime cuts of beef and the highest quality chops and poultry from local farms. We’re proud to embrace Rhode Island’s vibrant food scene, which has made the White Horse Tavern a New England destination.
