We called into the White Hart for a relaxing pre dinner drink. The door to the bar was locked so had to use another entrance, we were approached by a guy you wanted to know what we wanted, I asked was the bar open (I had read that the White hart had a good selection of whiskeys).
We were taken through to the bar area and my goodness what a dump! First complaint, no local beers on (can understand this as locals do not drink ale), secondly NO Islay whiskeys, thirdly a broken and smashed up pool table, fourthly, decor from the 70's.
Finished half of the poor beer and left. We walked past this pub a few times over the week and it never looked busy. If this place had a whisky bar we were not taken to it, but instead treated like scumbags and shown the common bar!
Has to be the worst place I’ve ever been to!
