Popped into here for a drink and some dinner on a bank holiday Monday after being out for the morning.

There are loads of good points about this place -

Plenty of parking
Lovely garden
Allow dogs inside and in the garden
Nice bar area
Really clean and tidy inside and out
Plenty of choice on the menu
Loads of drink choices
Very reasonably priced


We sat in the garden as it was a lovely day and we had the dog with us. Got a drink and ordered food.

The food didn’t take long, but long enough to know that it hadn’t been pre cooked and sitting about in the kitchen.

The ultimate burger was lovely. The half roast chicken was also great. Unfortunately the mixed grill was poor. Whilst there was plenty on the plate it had all been well over cooked. The steak, despite suppose to be a medium was way past well done, both sausages were black and the fried eggs were as crispy as the chips. Such a shame.

This won’t stop us going back, in fact I will make a point of returning and trying something else as it deserves a second chance as it has so much going for it.

I had lunch at the 'White Hart' on a fairly busy Friday lunchtime. The lunch itself was well presented, nicely cooked and extremely good value for money. The waitress was courteous and helpful. I/we ate in the dining area behind the pub; tables were clean and the atmosphere pleasant. I will recommend to friends.
I found I had left a jacket in the dining area by mistake. When I telephoned 'Harry' said he would keep it until I was able to arrange collection. Again, very helpful.

We stopped here for drinks before and after lunch at a neighbouring restaurant and I have to say it was a bit scruffy. The poor barman was on his own so a lot of tables dirty and glasses lying around. More staff later on but not enough do overall the place felt dirty. Not the best experience sadly.
