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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Went for a combined birthday meal. We were five minutes late because we couldn't get parked in the pub's small car park. When the lady came to take our order we asked for five more minutes and she rudely informed us that she had other...people waiting after we'd finished. This was only ten minutes after the time we had booked the table and when i pointed this out to her she sighed and said that the place was fully booked and people were coming to the table after us. I've never ever been told to hurry up choosing especially so when we were late because the car park was full. The lady then went away and was talking about this exchange to a colleague. The food was passable but not worth the price. It was an unpleasant experience because of the atmosphere created by this staff member, we won't be back.More

Went tonight for a birthday meal having never been before. A good selection of beers and some less available spirits on sale. We had the fish and chips, steak and ale pie and Ribeye steak. All arrived quickly and piping hot. Clearly all homemade and...excellent quality. The portions were more than adequate and we are big eaters. There is a great wine list from the local vintners Sandham's of Caistor...so good that we went and bought a couple of bottles of the Rioja Reserva that we had drank with our meal (still open 'til 19:30 on a Saturday) the wine list is comprehensive and inexpensive, covering all options. My son and I had the Tiramisu for desert and my wife the treacle sponge and custard. Again all brought out in a reasonable time. The quality of all was really good and clearly made to order...no microwave or defrost and serve here. We did book our table and were seated immediately on arrival. I have seen a few reviews suggesting that they were not accommodated and that this was a very locals only pub. Our welcome was warm but...this is the only pub in Caistor, it will be busy and there will be locals having a drink!!! There was some language but it was not insufferable and nothing compared to our local pubs! Pubs are for adults after all. We will certainly be going back, that menu needs working through! The front of house team tonight were young, but attentive and friendly, I bought them all a drink. If you can book, do so. This place punches above it's weight on food quality! You will not go hungry!More

Popped into this pub for evening meal while in the area at random. What a fantastic find. Traditional old pub with a nice atmosphere and welcoming staff. I ordered a steak pie and my wife had the carbonara. Both plates were full and excellent quality....Proper home cooked food as you’d expect. A good choice of beers and ales available too. I would definitely recommend.More

Walked in to a very unwelcoming welcome, asked if we could have a table for food, accommodated us after a sigh and a roll of eyes as we hadn’t booked. Food was nice even though it took forever to arrive. Language coming from the bar...was colourful to say the least….hope the guy who didn’t get taken home by the girl he was trying his luck with last night got over his disappointment (not something I really wanted to hear about while eating my food). Clearly a pub for locals and regulars who drink all day every day. Not a place for families, couples or visitors. Wouldn’t come backMore

Spent a couple of nights at the White Hart as the location was ideal for our trip. It’s what I’d describe as a good old fashioned locals’ pub with a friendly atmosphere, a couple of good ales and some tasty pub fayre. Our room was...surprisingly large (with a huge and very comfortable bed), a kitchenette with fridge and microwave and a good size en-suite with a powerful shower. All nice and clean too. Only downside was a little noise from the back bar below but tbh this didn’t really disturb us and didn’t go on too late. In the pub it would have perhaps been nice to see a fire/log burner as personally we found it a little chilly. And just suggestion - maybe candles (even the battery operated ones) on the tables would just enhance the atmosphere a little and give it warmer, cosier feel. Food was good, well presented and tasty. As a vegetarian there was certainly enough choice on the menu for me, however my other half is vegan and the options were rather limited. (tbf we probably should have mentioned this on booking as the proprietor said they would have provided more choice.) Breakfast was good and once it was established we were ‘veggies’ they kindly got in some vegetarian sausages and soya milk! All the staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful.More
