“Excellent Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We arrived just before 2:30 on a busy Sunday lunch time and were among the last customers for the Carvery. (the specials board menu had sold out!) The Manageress is very pleasant. I had the pork which was tasty and cooked well. My friend had the lamb and said it was extremely tasty. A very large selection of fresh, hot vegetables even though it was towards the end of service. A fresh tray of cauliflower cheese came out whilst we were there! The roast potatoes were excellent. It is a busy Pub with five star service and excellent food.

“pub grub with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Lovely warm and friendly pub serving great food at a price to suit everyone.
The food is plain and simple but very good with a main course starting from under a tenner. Lovely open fire, good atmosphere and friendly welcome.

“Excellent home cooked food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here twice and on both occasions have found the food to be extremely tasty and plenty of it. The staff are very courteous. On the times we visited there has been a lovely welcoming log fire. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the White Hart Inn.

“Cold pub despite fire”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We had lunch here on a cold wet day over Christmas.
There was a log fire in the grate but the pub was so cold everyone seemed to be wearing coats.

Likewise the beer was very cold .. not my preference for a bitter.

The staff didn't seem that keen to see us but the food was reasonable, although a trifle expensive compared with other pubs.

Service was back to front . The food appeared first followed by the cutlery etc a few minutes later ... they weren't busy so why could we have been given cutlery before our food starting going cold?

“A long wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Although the food was very good we had to wait over an hour to receive it, which was a bit much after being told 40 minutes. However, not really their fault, as the inn down the road was unexpectedly closed they had gained a bit more custom than expected, so think it was a stressful evening. However, we enjoyed the friendly village atmosphere - locals were welcoming and fun to share table with... we probably might not have waited had they not kept us entertained. Eating at 9.20 p.m. is not my idea of happiness ;)
