Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The White Hart was a beautiful location, with good furnishing, and was very warm and inviting. The music played over the speakers set a positive mood also. The service was perfect; the servers were all polite and friendly and the service was efficient. Both the...main course and the dessert were delectable and incredibly well-presented. The main course burger was an exactly satisfactory size, accompanied by well-cooked crunchy chips and sweet condiments. The dessert was a little small, but as is often the expectation for a high-end restaurant. However, the taste was still very sweet and pleasing. The only reason I was dissatisfied was because of the lack of diverse options on the menu. I was accompanied on my visit by a member of my family who is a strict vegetarian, who was disappointed to see that there was only one vegetarian main course option on the menu (a mushroom risotto) - especially since mushrooms are not to her taste. I would have preferred to see more vegetarian meals on the menu, especially since both me and another family member agreed that even those of us who enjoy meat also like to eat vegetarian or vegan food from time to time. In summary, a very nice restaurant with delicious food delivered by friendly servers. Our experience could only have been improved by adding more vegetarian and vegan items to the menu.More

Visited today to celebrate my daughter’s Birthdays, food was really good as always. However this time we were seated in the bar area, much prefer the seating/atmosphere in the restaurant area. We will definitely come back, but only if we can guarantee a table in...the other area.More

We were very disappointed with our visit to The White Hart last night. We had been looking forward to going because our previous visits had been positive. The first disappointment was having to sit in the bar area for our meal rather than the restaurant....If the food had been good, then that wouldn't have been an issue. However, the food wasn't great. I went for the scallops as I love seafood, when the starter arrived I had 2 smallish scallops on the plate, and at £13.95 that was a liberty. It had some orange mushy substance on the plate, which had no taste whatsoever. I then opted for the ribeye as that was the only steak on the menu, and it was so salty, I like food to be seasoned but this was seasoned to much. Overall a disappointing night from a restaurant that is usually very good.More

We were a large party, there for our Christmas ‘do’ and all had a fabulous time. We were hosted in the rear addition to the venue, and they did a superb job, looking after our large party, as well as other groups who were also...booked in. The food was superb, the staff were attentive and friendly, and the DJ got everyone up and dancing after the meal. If I have to put a negative, it was that the Christmas music playing before and during the meal was just a little too loud, so we had to shout to each other to have our conversations, but other than that, it was a great evening, and we won’t hesitate to book again next year.More

Went here for Christmas dinner, food could have been warmer, and as it was from the festive menu where were the crackers, cranberry sauce, bread sauce and a few candles would have made it easier to see what we were eating.

We had a lovely lunch here on a quiet Friday, we both had fish and chips and I had the apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert. The food was absolutely spot on, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and I couldn’t fault anything...about our visit. Thank you and we’ll definitely see you again soon!More

Staff are professional and friendly. Rooms located in another building seperate to the pub. Beautiful bedding and towels, toiletries provided. The room was dark and impossible to do hair and make up in the bedroom, v low windows with rather heavy fixed blinds on them....Bathroom was nice but only waterfall shower, extremely slippery floor when wet but a mat is provided, Over bed head fan not working, no chain to start it, maybe it had been pulled off. Second fan was working so some relief from the very hot night, Staff at breakfast were lovely but cooked breakfast was dry and the toast was like a damp squidge, coffee and orange juice was very good. Over all a very good price at just under £100 for the booking. Food on website looked good and the pub is traditional.More

We went for a chilled evening. Had a few drinks which were fine. Felt peckish and ordered a portion of large chips. Wasn’t told there was only one size! When they arrived they were in a small tapas plate. I asked the waitress if these...were the large as it was smaller than a typical child’s portion. She offered to bring a few more. When we went to pay we were charged £9.95 for the 2 portions. We were gobsmacked! Not only that out of three staff only the young blond girl was friendly. The others were miserable and not at all approachable. Ridiculous and overpricedMore

The White Hart is a privately owned 16th century inn. Everything about it was outstanding. Our suite was large but not overly so, very comfortable super king size bed and a full wet room with shower and bath. The low beams in the bar were...challenging for the taller people but fortunately, we were able to avoid cracking heads. The food in the restaurant was excellent and there was no chance of going hungry! All these good things would be fine but the crowning glory was the excellence of the staff. Amy and Bradley were brilliant - very efficient and personable and running the bar and restaurant to perfection. Staff like that are so impressive. A lovely stayMore
