“Over priced country pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

A lovely country setting - we had booked as a half way point to meet friends. The car park was full when we arrived and entering through the bar we could see why - this small room was seriously crammed with local drinkers. The pleasant bar lady directed us round to the restaurant - which was without many people.

Food was seriously over priced. A starter of fishcakes with chilli sauce which 3 of the 4 of us had was really one tiny fish cake on a plate of salad with little sauce. Main menus were again limited in choice and limited in food on the plate. I am not a great 'fill my plate' type of person - but this was poor and costly.

What we had was pleasant but the end bill made us realise we would not be coming back again. Overpriced

On a positive we did sit at the table till late and no one seemed to mind
On a negative - on the way out you pass a window on to the kitchen - possibly time to ensure things are cleaned before staff leave - not a good sight.

“Fantastic service but average food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Me and my girlfriend visited the White Hart a few weeks ago for the first time and it is quite a nice country pub. The restaurant part of it is really nice and separate from the bar area itself.
The highlight of our visit was the lad and the girl who were working there at the time as they were brilliant at their job and you felt like you were in a fine dining restaurant they were so good.
The downside though was my food. We had heard a lot of good things about this place so maybe our expectations were too high and i also made the mistake of ordering the pasta which i never normally do when i'm out. It just tasted bland considering it was supposed to have strong flavours such as ricotta in it and its presentation was if i'd dished it up quickly myself at home.
My girlfriends burger was much better, very filling and well presented and was good value for money.
The menu was relatively small, but i think this a good thing as sometimes having too much choice can make it hard to pick. They also have this new system from Guinness where your stout is basically shaken a bit in a can and then poured and isn't far off a normal good pint of Guinness.

Overall i probably would return again as i think i just made a bad choice on the day and it is a nice pub in a decent location.

“What a lovely place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

Haven't been to the white hart in years, but decided to stop for some lunch, so glad we did, young waiter very polite and welcoming, with excellent service, ordered off the light bites menu although could of easily tried anything as the restaurant was busy we kept seeing what everyone else was having! Food was brilliant and fairly priced too, will be recommended and will be going back! Thank you
