On booking we were told the Brasserie wasn't available (quiz night apparently!), hubby was reticent as reviews on here had said there was no atmosphere in the restaurant. However, it wasa a lovely surprise - we knew it was the same menu, but the restaurant itself made it feel more upmarket and a special evening.
We had a particularly gorgeous meal last night - the crab starter is AMAZING, the duck was just right, melt in the mouth pink with a selection of different 'jus' and flavours, with sticky toffee pudding to finish. Absolutely perfect, one of the best meals and evenings here.
We've just come back from Greenwich and a more expensive restaurant, where the food and service wasn't a patch on the White Hart. It made us appreciate this evening even more.
The waiters were great, friendly, professional and efficient. The chef they really must make sure they do everything to keep - the menu and combination of tastes and flavours with each dish is fantastic.
Superb - highly recommended !
