A great country pub

The White Hart is within easy reach of Barrow and Ulverston but it is very much a country pub. Situated in the heart of the village, it is full of character and in winter there is usually a warming open fire. We went for lunch on a Monday, when the pub was quiet. As usual, there was a good... read more

After my previous visit to the White Hart I raved about the steak and guiness pie, this recent visit was to a jovial afternoon wake to celebrate the life of a local. The Hart had prepared the most superb buffet for around fifty people who crammed into the main and adjoining rooms. With a vast range of hot dishes, sandwiches,... More

We have stayed in this pub on several occasions for weekend visits to the Lakes. It is friendly, good value, has a good atmosphere, great ales and good, honest food. This time we were staying in the attached 'Hillview' cottage over New Year but spent New Year's Eve and other times eating and drinking in the pub. We can recommend... More

Went for a meal with our two children aged 7 & 3. Good menu, particularly the children's menu which was quite different to the standard pub food. I went for the scampi thermidor, which was absolutely delicious. All the meals were good. Slight downside was that we waited around 40 minutes for our food, which isn't the best with two... More

I live locally and don't know why I've never posted about The White hart before. I can't pretend I'm a regular in the full meaning of the word but never hesitate to arrange to meet friends there. It is about as perfect a village pub as you'll find anywhere, consistently good food, well kept beers and a great atmosphere. We... More

This place has, for many years, been amongst my favourite venues, and I’m lucky enough to live not too far away, so visit often. The White Hart is crammed with character (very important to me) in the building, the decor and of course the staff. When I saw on the specials menu “Pan Fried Pigeon Breast” as a starter –... More

I called into this excellent country inn for a drink this evening and contemplated the fact that I had now been visiting this excellent establishment for over 40 years. During that time I have enjoyed some excellent meals and can honestly say I have never had a bad or even poor, pint of real ale. Situated just inside the Lake... More
