“Great modern pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We visited the White Hart today.
The food is excellent, not your standard pub food. It's delicisious. The renovated pub and garden offer a pleasant atmosphere. The service is friendly and charming. This is a gem!

“Stylish and a super relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I visited the White Hart for first time last weekend and I am already planning a return visit.The pub itself has been renovated lovingly and the result is first class with so many different original touches which add to the whole ambiance. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are attentive and helpful but also unobtrusive,The garden was great for our pre-dinner drinks and I especially liked the fig trees .We had a delicious meal with lovely fresh homemade bread and hummus arriving to keep us going whilst we were trying to choose from the menu.Lots of local and seasonal choices and at a very reasonable price.My room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and also had a fantastic en-suite bathroom with a full range of luxurious products for optimum pampering with a giant shower head to boot.I can recommend the full English breakfast which had very delicious black pudding and sausage.

“Renovation Complete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I visited The White Hart yesterday for the first time since it has been newly renovated. The transformation is wonderful. The pub is open, spacious and beautifully decorated. They really have done a lovely job with it. The meal was fantastic and very much enjoyed by all of us. The meat was cooked to perfection and the wood fired oven made for some delicious pizzas! The service was good and welcoming. Would definitely recommend for a fantastic meal and an atmospheric evening.

“Simply stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was lucky to be invited to the soft opening by the pubs new owners. The pub has had some serious refurbishment done and the transformation is amazing.
Original features have been exposed. The quality of the finish and attention to detail has not been compromised. The resulting bar/restaurant gives you 'a hug' when you walk through the front door and makes you feel so welcome. The whole building has been opened up. The garden now has a lovely outlook. Staff are attentive, without being obtrusive, and are knowledgeable about the food and drinks on offer. Always a bonus for us fussy feeders and connoisseurs of liquid refreshments! The food is fantastic but then why shouldn't it be with Tom Blake, of River Cottage acclaim, heading up the kitchen. Extensive wine list. Lovely ales on tap. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We went with some friends who were equally impressed and we will definitely be going back. Well done to all at the White Hart.
