“wetherspoons with a difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We have visited a few wetherspoons in North Manchester like Bury, Shaw, Rochdale etc, but this hostelry just across the border in West Yorkshire is pleasantly different. Unlike its near neighbours the White Hart is an Olde Worlde pub rather than a converted cinema or bank. With bars on 2 floors the pub is situated in the heart of Todmorden, just by the railway station and 2 minutes from the bus station which gives it easy access.
The staff are very friendly with the manager making himself known to customers by rolling his sleeves up and mucking in. We visited at a weekend and the place was busy, but the bar staff clocked who was waiting to be served and in which order; a pleasant change from pubs where people who shout the loudest get to the front of the queue. Being so busy we expected a long wait for our food, but we were wrong. Our starter of Nacho sharer arrived within 10 minutes and quite refreshingly we were invited to inform them when we were ready for our mains.
Can't say the menu was any different to any other wetherspoons but the food was hot, adequate portions and as always fabulous value for money. Draught beers from local micro breweries were less than £2 a pint and a bottle of Hardy's wine for £6.
There is a good, friendly atmosphere in the White Hart. I knew there was some history in Todmorden bit I did not realise how many famous people were born in the town from weather men , rock stars and scientists. To mark this, the pub walls are festooned with picture frames of the town's history and personalities explaining their achievements. This helps to make the visit both enriching as well as satisfying.
A visit to the White Hart is highly recommended!!

“Excellent, reliable base for food, conversation and a drink.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Living nearby, my partner and I go to the White Hart quite frequently, especially if we've been working late. It's always comfortable and most importantly, very good value. It's a Wetherspoon's but it's a cut above a lot I've been to. The food is actually very good, especially if you go on a theme night. Nice coffee too. It's a relaxing place to sit and talk in very nice surroundings, and the staff have always been helpful and polite. Can't fault the place really!!

“Bit disappointing after reading reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Had lunch there today-my steak was quite small - tasted O.K but was very hard on the outside as though it had been under a very hot warmer for a long time.My wife's curry could have been hotter(only lukewarm).My wife's naan bread was also very overcooked-hard.

“Good Wetherspoons pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you go to a Wetherspoons pub you know what to expect, and the White Hart is one of the best I have visited. Good choice of guest beers, friendly service and good advice. Beer very well looked after. Food well cooked and presented, with a very short wait despite the fact that the pub was busy.
