“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Just been with my mum for lunch - I found the staff friendly yet professional - refreshing change to see the manager working alongside his staff and serving ! A great example ! Then bonus the food was delicious ! We will be back ( think mum is a regular already )

“Excellent Meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Our daughter passes the White Hart everyday on her journey to and from work but never managed to go in for a meal, so on our most recent trip to see her we called in on spec to see if they had a table available which they did. And we where all delight with all aspects of our visit. There was plenty to chose from on the menu and all our choices tasted terrific. The dining area was spotlessly clean and the staff where all very friendly. This will be one of our first choices when we return to this area and we will make sure we book a table next time to ensure we are not disapointed.

Thank you for your review, it is always great to hear from new guests and wonderful to hear that we met (and hopefully exceeded) your expectations. We look forward to seeing you again and soon and yes, do strongly recommend booking as even week day lunches can be very busy. Do let your server know that you reviewed us so we can thank you personally.

“Lovely location and great food (luckily worth the wait!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We went for a family meal at The White Hart on Saturday lunchtime. The pub was busy but not too full with a good atmosphere and log fires burning, which was very welcoming. The decor is a very smart mix of traditional and modern. The staff were all very friendly, polite and helpful.

The food was very well presented, good quality and altogether very enjoyable, which was a relief because we waited a long time for it to come. You normally expect a bit of a wait anywhere at a weekend if the kitchen is busy but this was a bit too long - had it taken any longer we might have eaten the waitress! :D

Thank you so much for your review, and it is great to hear that the service and food quality were the standard we strive for, I have however taken note that you waited for a long time for the food and will check back with the Kitchen and General Manager regarding this. generally the only time there is a delay of any sort in the kitchen is when guests arrive close together and orders all go in to the kitchen at once, but we work very hard to stagger orders and ensure the wait time isn't too long. Thank you again so much for taking the time to post your review and we hope to see you very soon.

“Sunday Lunch, birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

My son, daughter and grandchildren took my partner and I out for a birthday lunch at theWhite Hart. The food was excellent, the service good, fast and very friendly. The ambiance was lovely with a roaring log fire at the entrance, and fascinating anagrams on the walls. Very good.

“Always a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

This place is our 'local' for both drinking and eating, and it never disappoints! Great friendly service and great food, and always a lovely atmosphere. We've been here countless times and it always makes us want to keep coming back. Always a friendly welcome and the food is good quality and well presented - can't fault it! Well worth a visit if you're anywhere near.
