I spent a nice lunch on New Year s Day with my family. Very relaxed atmosphere, good food, nice location. I think I will come back to the White House another day, this means a lot. I recommend it.

What a great pub. Lamb stew I have not had so good since my mother's. Sweet potato and onion soup. Both warm and hearty yet not starchy
