We visited this establishment for Sunday lunch and choose the carvery as most of the other patrons were enjoying there's. There was a selection of turkey or beef, both looked well cooked and fresh. The vegetables were all el dente (just the way we like them - not over cooked and soggy) with a reasonable selection of acruitments. To end... More

Visited twice, close to our B & B Havenhurst House. Good food, friendly staff. Thank you to our waitress, Chloe, for asking the chef to slightly deviate my meal from what was on the menu 😀 If staying in Lymington again, will definitely be eating here again 😊

Drove past and caught the smell of an fire and turned back to go in, so glad we did! What a wonderful pub. Lovely friendly helpful staff. We ordered a light bite of ploughman's with local brie and steak ciabatta sandwich. They were both lovely, tasty and filling. Pub has a wonderful atmosphere and we loved the open fire which... More

We dropped in here for a meal after several other local places could not accommodate us for at least an hour. Friendly service and reasonable prices. When our fish and chips arrived we could not believe our eyes - the fish was enormous, filling the plate and double the size of any fish we have had before. It was a... More

Lymington is a unique coastal town in Southern England. The people are friendly and you feel as if you have stepped back to a quieter time. The White Hart is a very cozy and inviting pub with regulars that give you a feeling of belonging, even for just a short time. We visited the White Hart with our family the... More

Chicken very dry. Waitress cleared plates and guest opposite me had barely touched her meal but nothing was said. Guests in party don't like to... More

We stopped by for the first time to have a drink and were pleased to see the brilliant garden out back. We had time to enjoy a drink and some of the best chips while our son ran around the ample garden and play area. The service was friendly, beer was good and the chips well worth a visit. We... More

Visited this pub while staying in Lymington for an evening meal. Staff were lovely and friendly but it was a shame the food was not up to scratch. Food appeared and tasted like it had been cooked/reheated in the microwave. The meal we ordered was stuffed chicken breast. The filling in the chicken was practically non existent and the chicken...

Dropped in with my partner for lunch. Wonderful, freshly made mushroom risotto and delicious garlic bread hit the spot. Excellent, cheerful service from from Dwayne. My partner left his mobile behind by mistake when we left. Laura took the trouble to track us down and send the phone to us via first class post. She would not accept any payment... More
