The staff at The White Hart are lovely and the food is great; local produce and they're not mean with portion sizes. There's a nice quiet area with cozy chairs at one end of the bar and the pictures of the local area through time add to what is becoming a rare environment - a good local pub.

Good pub grub and I mean that as a compliment - if you want good sound pub food, well cooked, well presented and (most importantly) plenty of it this would be a good choice if in lovely Lymington. Drinks well priced and nice friendly staff too plus what looks like a nice child friendly garden for the summer

We visited this establishment for Sunday lunch and choose the carvery as most of the other patrons were enjoying there's. There was a selection of turkey or beef, both looked well cooked and fresh. The vegetables were all el dente (just the way we like them - not over cooked and soggy) with a reasonable selection of acruitments. To end... More

Visited twice, close to our B & B Havenhurst House. Good food, friendly staff. Thank you to our waitress, Chloe, for asking the chef to slightly deviate my meal from what was on the menu 😀 If staying in Lymington again, will definitely be eating here again 😊

Drove past and caught the smell of an fire and turned back to go in, so glad we did! What a wonderful pub. Lovely friendly helpful staff. We ordered a light bite of ploughman's with local brie and steak ciabatta sandwich. They were both lovely, tasty and filling. Pub has a wonderful atmosphere and we loved the open fire which... More

We dropped in here for a meal after several other local places could not accommodate us for at least an hour. Friendly service and reasonable prices. When our fish and chips arrived we could not believe our eyes - the fish was enormous, filling the plate and double the size of any fish we have had before. It was a... More

Lymington is a unique coastal town in Southern England. The people are friendly and you feel as if you have stepped back to a quieter time. The White Hart is a very cozy and inviting pub with regulars that give you a feeling of belonging, even for just a short time. We visited the White Hart with our family the... More

Chicken very dry. Waitress cleared plates and guest opposite me had barely touched her meal but nothing was said. Guests in party don't like to... More
