An open fire, a friendly welcome, good food, a wide range of real ales and several dogs wondering around keeping an eye on all the customers. What more could anyone want?

The White Hart is the most friendly pub you’re likely to find. A far more imaginative and delicious food menu than other local pubs and a good selection of beers and wine. And very dog friendly - my owner loves going there! Albert the Border...More

Recently we have been away to Yorkshire and had a traditional Sunday Roast in a much acclaimed pub..this was much better in all respects. The choice of food , the quality of food and the service and the atmosphere.

The food and atmosphere is super in this village pub. Dog and child friendly (with a box of games for the children to play with). Lynda is a great landlady.

Nothing to live up to there, then! Thanks Graham, much appreciated and the village is so lucky that people like you are moving in, who want to contribute to the local experience and join in the fun. Ghost Ship is back soon...

very friendly people, nice food, meal spoilt by the pub dogs who wouldn't leave us alone. I love dogs, I have two myself, but I don't let them sit under the table while I'm eating. Wouldn't return for this reason.More

Gosh, I so agree! My dogs don't beg at table when I eat either... But sadly a lot of our customers are far more accommodating, despite our protestations to the contrary. And, of course, the dogs are clever and take advantage. I think Stinky even...More

Sorry, think you might have the wrong White Hart... We are the one in Otley, Suffolk. No fishing trips around here as far as we know...

The White Hart is the only pub in Otley, a village of some 800 souls lying in the heart of the Suffolk Heights, eight miles from Ipswich and 10 minutes east of the A14. As the "local" we offer a warm welcome to all, whether just to sit with a pint and the crossword in front of the fire, or for a large group to have an extended Sunday Lunch in our sunny beer garden. Our food is fabulous, our drinks are delicious and, of course, we have free Wi-Fi to keep you up to date. For your private parties or corporate hospitality, we dare to be different.
