My partner and I have only been living in Calne for two months and have had little time to get to know the area with work commitments and a holiday at the end of September .
We arrived back from our holiday on the 13 of October, we were desperate for a Sunday lunch but time was moving and we were pretty sure we would have missed any opportunity for lunch.
I phoned by random the White Hart and asked if they did food ,the person who I spoke to turned out to be the owner ,he explained that Sunday lunch had ended however he could do something for us , we said we would be there in ten minuets,it is walkable for us however as they had been so accommodating we drove .
We were not disappointed in any department ,the decor is tasteful and stylish, beautiful wood burning stove which we sat near , not that it was cold but just felt so good to sit in front of an open fire , an array of tasteful comfy chairs wooden floors .
The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we both felt very at ease even though we had never been into the establishment before .we were offered Sunday lunch which was wonderful beef and pork very tender and tasty Yorkshire pudding !sweet potatoes ,roast potatoes , beans it was all cooked beautifully , extra gravy, awesome . My partner had coffee and I had two very good pints of Guinness .
In conclusion wonderful place to eat and relax , and lends itself to atmospheric get togethers /parties ,or to call into after a brisk walk this winter and sit by an open fire
We will defiantly be returning that's for sure,what a great job the owners have done having only been in six weeks.
