Living minutes from The White Hart I visit fairly often. There is always a lovely atmosphere and ambience. It's a great place for a relaxing drink. The last couple of meals I've had have been good but I have been put off in the past by the inconsistency in the quality and presentation of the food. I hope the White... More

We visited The White Hart for a weekday lunch, the service was efficient and friendly, the place is very clean and modern, and there is a lovely outside area with tables and patio heaters. The food was superb with everything cooked from fresh even the flatbreads. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

We bought our drinks at the bar and asked for a food menu, it never arrived. We got up again and took a menu eventually after 30 min caught someone's eye and ordered. The scallops were barely warm and cost £9.95 for 3. The rib eye steak was delicious but the chips/ wedges were once again cold. The redeeming factor... More

Thank you for this review, which is of course extremely important to us and something we will act on immediately. Regarding having to ask for your own menu and ordering drinks at the bar, I will feed this back immediately as there should always be a member of staff in a section where there are guests.

My last review of the White Hart was less than complimentary but having visited there this Bank Holiday Monday, I felt I should write another review as the food was superb, The place was very crowded and we had a 7 p.m. booking so I guess that was more because it was Bank Holiday rather than a "normal" Monday night....

I hadn't been to the White Hart for years and decided to go on Saturday evening with some friends for a meal. We had booked a table - probably advisable as it was very busy.

Have not been before but will definitely go again. It was recommended by my daughter and we weren't disappointed. Went with family. Had three courses with wine. Could not fault the service or the food. The crispy duck salad was lovely and the others had sea bass, which they said was devine. Starters and desserts were also brilliant. Can't wait... More
