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.

We were made very welcome and enjoyed our meals and drinks at this lovely village pub. Some of us felt the food might have benefited with the addition of a little more spice in the curry as it was very mild, perhaps offer an option...of mild, medium or hot?More

The halloumi and pesto fries were a tasty starter. Me and my friend liked the lasagna but agreed it was a little too cheesy , the garlic bread was lovely that came with it though. My other friend enjoyed her scampi.

Excellent Sunday roast, we have been twice this year (visiting from London) and food so wonderful, we went back today. All 3 visits were very busy so book a table to guarantee a stop, the food is fabulous and home made. The landlord and landlady...are very welcoming and lovely, as are the rest of the staff. Well worth a visit.More

Grabbed a cheeky pub lunch today at the White Hart Inn, Havenstreet. Sat outside as the sun was shining. Superb home cooked pub food with the usual attentive and friendly service. The pub was very busy with locals and tourists enjoying some rare summer sun...over the Bank Holiday weekend. Staff greated us with smiles and took time to chat and make us feel welcome. Whitby scampi or traditional roast pork, what's your choice?More

My two daughters and myself popped into the The White Hart, Havenstreet for lunch whilst on a day out on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. This English village pub cannot be praised enough, both for it's food and wonderful, friendly staff. I had the...Ham and Cheese Ploughman's, with, mouth-watering, succulent thick cut ham, my girls had the ham sandwiches, totally outstanding in taste and presentation. I would probably say, this is the best Ploughman's Lunch I have ever had and I have had some fantastic ones in other English village pubs down the years. They had around 3 real ales on tap, can't recall for certain which I had, think it was from the Ringwood Brewery, but whatever it was, it was so good, I had a second pint to wash down my Ploughman's. For dessert, the girls and myself had locally made dairy ice cream - truly scrumptious! The down side of being such a popular hostelry is, you need to get here early. We just missed out on the last table indoors, but as it was such a glorious sunny day, we did not mind eating out in the beer garden. Top marks to the wonderful owner who served us and the lovely ladies behind the bar. If you are holidaying in the Isle of Wight, please make a point of visiting the White Hart Inn, it will be an absolute joy to eat and drink here.More

Excellent! Sat outside as we hadn't booked and the restaurant was full. Friday lunchtime we thought would be ok, don't make the same mistake; make sure you book! Great choice on the menu and specials too. We both ate from special menu and food was...perfect. Service helpful and friendly too. Can't believe we've not been here before.More

A well anticipated lunch meet up with good friends, resulting in disappointment. We waited over an hour for our food. Over half an hour just for the order to be taken! Sadly NONE of the looked forward chicken dishes were available during to a 'delivery...problem'. Well Ryde is only 15 minutes away, and shop there sell chicken! So I wasn't impressed as I only eat fish and chicken. By the time we had our order taken the lamb had also sold out and we had got there at 12.30! Which was sad because only one week before my partner had a lovely meal with good service. Just a bad day I guess.More

We booked for a joint celebration dinner and were very impressed . We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff were attentive without being over the top. We ordered from a good menu, including the specials. Our food arrived promptly,...was well presented and generous portions. The food was very tasty and perfectly cooked. We left room for a dessert which, like the main course, was delightful. We paid a fair price for what we had, I've paid a lot more for far inferior food.More

What a find! Popped in for lunch and met with a friendly greeting. Every table had hand sanitizer and there was a plenty of choices on the menu. Both of our dishes were superb and the service was great, we will certainly be returning in...the near future. More draught ales would have been nice, but it will not stop us going back.More
