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.

Friendly staff. Tasty food. Cosy inside for the winter months, as well as a great beer garden for the summer. Would recommend for all occasions.

We booked the White Hart for my partners 30th birthday, Keith and Wendy made the whole process smooth and easy. We had a good size group and everybody had an absolutely lovely evening. We requested a Buffett and we were blown away by the quality...of the food and the amount of it. We had loads of feedback from friends after about how much they enjoyed the food. Overall it was just a 10/10 night. Thank you.More

Absolutely top service. A special thank you to Keith and his team for fitting 20 of us in and dishing up some excellent food. Especially for accommodating some gluten free and vegetarian members of the stag. All at a really lovely pub right in the...heart of Canterbury.More

We had our wedding party at the white hart this summer and it was the perfect setting. The garden is beautiful and the staff couldn’t have been better. They also did a cheese board for us in the evening and I’ve had so many messages...from people saying how good it was. Thanks to all the staff at the white hart for a lovely day. BeckyMore

We've chosen The White Hart Inn as a venue for my to-be sister-in-law's hen do. It was absolutely amazing! Stunning location, very central, walking distance to Canterbury center. They had the tables all set up for us outside under their covered seating area. Keith and...his team are ever so friendly and accommodating. They even gave the bride a prosecco on the house We will all surely be back!! Thanks Keith & teamMore

Well,I understand this is a great place in the summer for the beer garden, but it is a great place in December with a warm fire. My family and I were in Canterbury right before Christmas on a cold, rainy day on a recommendation from...our guide. After a walk from the Cathedral, a beer and a warm meal in front of a nice fire was just the thing we needed. It totally felt like home with the family around a wooden table. My wife and daughter had a pot pie and the rest of us had the tenderloin and vegetables special. Again, it was great, and the service and setting made you fell like you were having at someone's home. This was the perfect way to cap our visit to Canterbury. I highly recommend you eat here.More

The White Hart also caters for private parties. I very much enjoyed a friend's birthday party here, when the whole bar was booked for the event. The staff are pleasant and helpful.

We sought this pub out for lunch as it is dog friendly. We had the pide and a salad. They were delicious but we felt the salt was somewhat overpriced. We would return
