Certificate of Excellence
Sitting in the middle of stunning Derbyshire countryside, The White Hart Inn is a classic English inn given a swirl of modernity thanks to a recent renovation. Reclaimed brick and stone walls with solid oak beams mean the original character of the building has stayed intact but expect plenty of 21st century touches. Bedrooms feature stylish fabrics with on-trend wallpapers, crisp white bed linens and chic scatter cushions. Downstairs the welcoming wood-panelled bar serves real ales, cocktails and everything in between while the restaurant dishes up homemade meals using locally-sourced ingredients.

The White Hart is one of our usual eateries in the area but it really failed to hit the mark on our last visit. It's strange that even though this pub predates the sister pub in Wessington; The Horse and Jockey, it is not quite near the same standard. We opted for the fish and

Thank you for your recent review of The White Hart. I will pass all your comments about the food onto the kitchen team especially with regards to the fish and chips not being up to standard. Also with regards to the desserts again not being big enough. We always recommend mentioning to a member of staff about any issues a guest may have during the day. No matter what age or position they are they all know what to do if someone has an issue. We always have a member of management on shift regardless so if this was mentioned on the day this could of been dealt with more effectively. If you had mentioned about the dishes not being up to standard we would have swapped the dish or either a new one or totally different dish altogether to ensure you left happy. So it is a shame this couldn't have had a different outcome for you. we are totally committed to all aspects of all of our venues from restaurant, to weddings and into the bedrooms, in fact we welcome feedback of all kinds. We are always looking to improve our standard hence why we ask for feedback. it is a shame you wont return but if you do please mention any issues on the day when we can do something about it. Thank you once again for your review.

Long story short: Food was cold ( the warmest thing I ingested was a pint of lager) Undercooked food ( I'm a chef, so I know my stuff) Also breaking several food hygiene rules by waiting staff bringing bags of rubbish through the restaurant in front of eating customers (

Thank you for your recent review of The White Hart. We appreciate all feedback we receive though being a chef yourself you'd know that it is much better to be told on the day so something can be done/amended for you rather than hearing about it through another route, especially when someone goes through the effort of creating a tripadvisor profile just to complain. so if your food was cold and undercooked we could of exchanged it or made a fresh meal altogether if mentioned there and then. We want our guests to leave happy, if they aren't we can sort something there and then for them. If you were on the bottomless brunch the cocktails aren't an extra charge you pay the £25 per person and can have as much as you want for the 2hrs you get the table. so you can see why this deal is such a good and popular one. We haven't had anyone else mention before about rebranding our bottomless brunch but I will let the relevant team know. I will mention to the manager about the rubbish bags as this shouldn't have happened. thank you again for your review and feedback.

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner here on Christmas Eve, December 2018. The dining room was spacious and warm, and the welcome we received was cheerful and professional. Overall, our dining experience was quite good. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy, but initial service,

thank you for your recent review of The White Hart. It's lovely to hear about your Christmas Eve meal with us. Apologies about the slow start and unavailable dishes on this visit. It's great that you enjoyed your meals with the beef being tasty and the monkfish too. Our menu has recently changed over the last week which has a bigger and wider variety, hopefully something for everyone. we look forward to welcoming you back soon and thank you once again for your review.

Just took the family to the restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. The menu selection was disappointing, apparently it is reduced due to it being New Years Day, which is fair enough, but should have been made clear at time of booking. Now the meal itself: we all commented

Thank you for your recent review of The White Hart. We apologise that the menu change wasn't made aware to you on booking however, the menu had been available online for at least a month and our festive menus do change from our normal menu, this is to make it more of an occasion on special days. I apologise about the food being very salty - I have since spoken with the kitchen team with regards to this. so thank you for mentioning it to us. We have spoken to the team with regards to asking for more chips and we think this was miscommunicated as they thought that you just required an extra side of chips as they hadn't had a complaint about them or wasn't brought to a managers attention. We do take our customer service very seriously and we do make sure we do all we can for guests when they bring complaints forward whilst they visit, this way they can sort it there and then, change your dish or even get a whole new meal. we really do listen to our customers feedback and we hope that you will return just so we can show you that we do. thank you once again for your review.

Thank you for your question, the nearest town to us is Alfreton. The is a bus which goes direct from Derby to Alfreton which you can catch, and then I would recommend getting a taxi from Alfreton to the hotel. The are usually many taxis around the bus station in Alfreton, but if not our recommended taxi supplier is Amber Taxis who you can call on 01773 836100. If you have any further queries at all please call us on 01629 534888 and we will be happy to help. We look forward to seeing you next week!

"Ask for a room with a countryside view"
"We did not overnight - only dinner."
"Didn't sleep over but would imagine it is excellent"
"All rooms are generous in size, those at the rear avoid the noise of people leaving events held at the hotel which is seemingly popular"
"All rooms look out over open country, but maybe the front could be less peaceful, as the main car park's there."
