Description: We are a country pub owned by farmers. Our farm supplies the beef, lamb and pork and we source other ingredients from local producers where we can. Our small seasonal menu changes regularly reflecting what is available in our area. We pride ourselves on being very much a country pub, offering freshly prepared seasonal food and a warm welcome. ​ Alongside our menu we have daily specials such as our homemade pies and hand cut steaks. Our all butter short crust pastry pies are made fresh every day using the finest local ingredients. The pies are served with seasonal vegetables and potatoes. We only produce small batches to ensure the best quality and tastiest pies.

We have just spent a perfect evening at the White Hart. The views over towards Beachy Head are stunning and sitting out on the terrace on such a warm evening was a joy. The wine ( Chapel Down ) and service were both excellent . Our food was well cooked and delicious. Puddings, especially the passion fruit posset, are not to be missed. We are so lucky to have this restaurant so near our home and we will definitely be back for more.

OK, so it was 30C outside, blue sky and no way were we going to sit indoors for lunch. The setting and decor of the modern add-ons to the pub are fantastic. Great sweeping views over Eastbourne and the end/start of the South Downs.

I loved the idea of the barbecue and we tucked in to some yummy food, sea bass, chorizo, and water melon and feta salad. I think this place is going to be very popular and if they can keep up the standard of food this could be a winner. Congratulations!

Very friendly welcome and service throughout the evening. Best steak in years and the pancakes my wife had was also delicious. Tasty sweets too. The new owners have made tremendous improvements not just to the decor but the food and service. Well done, we will return.

Everything about our visit was amazing. Really great food: locally sourced; fresh; and cooked beautifully. Great views and ambience. Well trained staff who were polite and helpful. We sat on the terrace which was really comfortable and sheltered.
