Confusion about the Real White Horse Tavern

I’ve now seen a book and a video that refer to a different building as the White Horse Tavern. They are confused by a marketing scheme to use the history of the White Horse to advertise a wine bar located next to the Sheraton hotel. The real White Horse Tavern is located off of Swedesford Road, where the building still stands. The wine bar that calls itself White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar, is not the real tavern but is probably the Glenloch tollgate (unsure exactly until I do further research) off of Lincoln highway. However, the marketing has confused various sources trying to represent actual history in Chester Country, and they have the location wrong.  Here is a map to show you exactly where the real White Horse is in comparison to the wine bar that pretends to be the white horse.
