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.

Been sat at the white harts bar for 20years+ But the bar staff and the owner for the last 2 and a half years has made this pub nothing but perfection. Non stop laughs and gentlemen advise. The food is out of this world and...I couldn’t recommend a better pub for first dates/family dinner/boys on the pissMore

Cozy pub with a modern touch. Lovely staff and amazing food. Reasonably priced. Brilliant place to visit with friends and family, live music on occasionally which makes the atmosphere even more enjoyable.

We chose The White Hart purely on reviews as we are unfamiliar with the area. Advance booking was straightforward via the website and the pub easy to find just outside of Alton. The car park is behind the pub with parking also available on the...road. Service was attentive and personal. We all really enjoyed our lunch, the food was amazing and from ingredients locally sourced, a great overall experience. Will absolutely returnMore

We are visiting our children in UK, from Romania, and celebrating a special birthday we’ve decided to go to White Hart in Holybourne. Our children were here last year as well but for my husband and I was the first time! And let me tell...you, we’ve been very impressed by everything and everyone! From the amazing looking and tasty food, the pub and room to drinks and service, everything was of great quality and good prices. We stayed for two nights, and we’ve enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner, and even Sunday Roast! DELICIOUS ! Also everyone working there and the owners were all very accommodating and friendly! We hope to come back soon!More

We booked out all the rooms for a family and friends birthday weekend. The owners couldn’t have been more accommodating they went above and beyond. The food was delicious really great value for money. The staff couldn’t have made us feel more welcome. We will...definitely go again.More

What an amazing place White Hart is! Beautiful, spotless and functional rooms, with the best toiletries and most fluffy towels! Friendly and professional staff serving the tastiest and beautifully presented food! Our family of five stayed for two nights and had the opportunity to try...their breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Roast! We couldn’t fault any of the dishes! This was our second visit, a year and a half later and we are very happy to have returned and looking forward to our next visit!More

Went for a lunch on Monday 6th November. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was getting busy (always a good sign). Choice of wine/ales was good, and service was quick, attentive but unobtrusive - very nice indeed. The food was excellent - good...choice, good value Monday special prices on steaks, good specials board, and very well cooked and delicious. Definitely one to visit again in the near future! Well-placed for a family meet up, so we will be back.More

Half term for a tired old teacher was soooo cheered by the White Hart's selection of 'sipping spirits'! A damp October Monday was wonderfully enlivened by the addition of a measure of organic, smooth tequila. Food was and always is, great - so pleased to...have a practically perfect pub, within walking distance.More

Good ambiance and friendly service. We both had the Korean double chicken burger and chips. It was tasty and adequate, but nothing special. At £15 it was overpriced: I would have expected at least some form of salad garnish. Hence the three star rating.More

Hi Linda, Oh no - I'm sorry you felt our double Korean chicken thigh burger + chips was overpriced at £15. It is a different style of burger and served with a pickled 'slaw and gochujang ketchup as garnish instead of a regular beef burger...More

Whilst not the cheapest menu there is a good range of dishes at various price points. The staff were really helpful and attentive. The food was amazing across the board. Generous portions and excellent presentation. I had the fish and chips which was enormous and...delicious. A really nice atmosphere and good drinks on hand. Highly recommended.More
