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.

Absolutely faultless meal! Cannot say there is anything I would change about or delicious meal. We each had 3 courses which is unheard of for us but it all looked so good and we were still talking about it the day after. The Tonka bean...panna cotta deserves a special mention as does the cod with wild garlic tagliatelle. Service was efficient but not effusive. Can't wait to go back!More

Toughest roast beef I have been served in years. Finally managed to get waiter over to comment but didn't get a reply to my complaint until again I had to call over the waiter. The answer seemed to be that the chef and waiter weren't...really interested and no recompense given for half eaten meal. No "how is your meal" while eating, no attention to customer satisfaction and no attempt to recover from customer bad experience. Staff need to be trained in good service and management need to do better. I won't be back!More

This pub has a lovely garden with fabulous views and this was a big attraction for us as it’s also only 10 minutes drive from home. The first time we ate here which was when it had recently opened, after extensive refurbishment, it was super..... but the last two visits have been very disappointing, the staff are very friendly and attentive but the food is not as good and the pub needs a really good clean especially the restaurant carpet which was extremely dirty . Such a shame .. but we won’t be visiting this pub again.More

We were staying at an Unplugged cabin and had a £10 voucher to use at The White Hart so we thought we would give it a go and were very pleasantly surprised. There was a great menu selection that went beyond your normal “pub” food....We were also excited to see they served cocktails! Then we were even more lucky to have stumbled upon their live music night where we moved out onto the terrace to enjoy the views & music. The service was also excellent throughoutMore

While we were visiting our friend who lives locally, she had booked us in at The White Hart for a late lunch, there were three of us. The weather was dire and although we had the best table in the house all we could see...was the rain driving against the window. But never mind, the food and service made up for that! My wife and my friend both had fish and chips and they looked a proper treat when they were served, the fish were both huge, and apparently very tasty. I opted for a burger and that was very tasty too. If I was being a little picky I would say a side salad with the burger, I know there was some salad in the burger but it didnt half look lonely on a plate with just chips. Also, I do really love a nice salad. The service was great and all in all it was a very pleasant dining experience!More

We stayed the night in one of the 4 rooms at this wonderful pub and had dinner. The food was excellent, tasted delicious, looked good and a good variety of choices. Well above the standard of a gastro pub. Good choice of local beers and...gins. The service was really friendly and attentive, Tiffany was brilliant, so friendly, helpful and happy. The room was very well appointed, it had everything weneeded, with a big bathroom and powerful shower. The outside seating area is large and has a spectacular view, all the way to the coast. I thoroughly recommend the White Hart for food and to stay.More

A fantastic view IF the weather is suitable but the prices are extortionate. A small bag of crisps is £1.95 and a 175ml glass of white wine is £10.50. How can they justify this? when most other establishments charge almost half! This slightly ruined the...occasion (knowing that you're being ripped off). There are several other local pubs in which to enjoy a drink at a realistic price, I would recommend them.More

Relaxed atmosphere but still feels special with a nice ambience. Cosy on a wet day outside. Good service with a friendly waiter. Really very delicious food! Price fair for the wonderful quality of food. Drinks are on the pricey side. Would definitely visit regularly if...we lived in the area. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

Excellent Sunday lunch in this lovely pub. The pub is nicely decorated with a stunning garden. The roast was really good - plentiful and well cooked. Service was friendly and fun (Benji was very patient with our sheninigans!!) And the my were excellent for coeliacs,...the menu was clearly marked and those who couldn’t eat gluten were really well catered for.More
