This beautiful charming really traditional local village pub is a favourite for food, firkins and fireplaces. Ypu can sup great real ales (just love all the hand pumped ales), wander through to the garden views across the Rother flood plain, or challenge each other with a game of pool (don't forget to use the shortie cue on the corner). Or... More

Can't vouch for the food as we wanted a decent pub with decent beer. ( few and far between) This pub scores very highly on both counts...I'll be back.( bonus : nice friendly dogs and their owners, and a few minutes away from Northiam station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway ....Steam trains! ).

I chose the White Hart on the recommendation of the owner of the B&B where I was staying. I had the steak and ale pie which was tasty and generously sized. The accompanying gravy was particularly good. Service was prompt and good without being intrusive. It's a good pub for dinner but not so much that I felt the desire... More

The service was excellent, very friendly and professional. I had the Haddock & prawn gratin which was excellent, so delicious, I was very impressed and satisfied. My husband had the pie which was lamb and he said it was excellent. There was a very generous amount of filling. His only comment was that he would have liked more gravy, but... More

We had a family meal here whilst staying in the area. The food was excellent. Two of our group had the pie which was delicious and packed with filling. The desserts were scrummy too. The service was professional and courteous by a mature lady. We had a lovely time and would not hesitate to return .

Stopped by chance here for dinner and we were very glad we did. The service was friendly and quick. The food was good pub food and the fish was fresh and well cooked.
