I read some of the reviews in advance to eating here and it appeared to be very good. Well all I can say is that the people of Halstead are prepared to accept a level of service which is very poor. What strange staff, both grumpy and unhelpful as if they didn't want us or respect us as customers. Perhaps... More

David, my name is Matthew Mason, I'm the owner of The White Hart, GREAT YELDHAM, Halstead, Essex not The WHite Hart, Halstead High Street. We would not tolerate swearing in our establishment, our staff are highly trained and we own our own car park, with its own lighting and are not situated near a high street. You have clearly mistaken... More

Drove up from London to look at houses and stumbled across this on a sunny Saturday afternoon, there were on a few couples there so it wasn't crowded... Apparently there are quit a few Weddings there. Anyway excellent Menu, we only had a Burger and Chips but it was tasty and well presented, home made Chips, not frozen out of... More

I have visited The White Hart numerous times and each visit has been faultless. The food always exceeds expectation and the service and staff are second to none! Having visited on a sunny day, i was able to sit in the beautiful beer garden while choosing from the six course a la carte menu. I brought my family to try... More

Although the food was good, it certainly didn't match up to the price tag. The starter was cold and the main course left much to be desired - including what tasted like a stale cracker underneath the cottage pie. The food wasn't the main problem though - it was the amount of time it took to arrive. We waited half... More

Really enjoyed the bar menu. Good food and good portions. The puddings were decent size and very sweet/rich. The pub seemed very popular

The restaurant has a good ambience and is cosy with its low Tudor beams. The service is attentive and friendly- particularly from the Hungarian manageress - who is a fount of knowledge. The food was of the highest quality and the best plates looked and tasted as good as food I have eaten in Michelin starred establishments. I can particularly... More

I have stayed here with my husband for a romantic week end away. As it was low season, the manager Hayley upgraded us to a OMG suite which was extremely well decorated and appointed with a very big and modern bathroom. The 2 area where you dine are so perfect, homey, with original features. One is for pub dinning and... More

My wife and I were visiting Halstead for a wedding and alighted on the white hart by accident, and boy where we ever please, it was a great evening from start to finish and the food was really outstanding and the staff could not have been more professional if they tried. We would love love to go again, so take... More

The dining experience here is divided into either bar type food served in a lovely bar area or a more formal restaurant but both settings are beautifully designed, cosy, and romantic if that's what you are in the mood for. I would think the beams and the basic building is from the sixteenth century. The food is excellent and outstanding... More
