But think it's got a bit to do before it gets back to the standard it was before. Had a drink outside in the sunshine, Very busy with empty tables not being cleared of empty glasses etc. Front of house was very good as was the bar staff / waiter. The food was basically average .... The Scallops overcooked, The... More

Mothering Sunday afternoon/evening so a busy place but we were served fairly promptly by very friendly and helpful staff. There was a good selection of dishes to choose from and the food was well presented, very tasty, fresh and hot. My only complaint is that it was very noisy but that was nothing to do with the restaurant merely the... More

We were always regular visitors to the White Hart, we go with our dogs after a walk. We were devastated when the fire closed it in December. Delighted when it opened again in such a short time. We went for the first time on Saturday evening. We were early it was 5pm, and very busy as it was mother's day... More

Wanted to try now reopened after fire. Me and wife had scallops to start and they were excellent. For main I had the fillet steak which was very tender and tasty. Couldn't manage a desert. Great service from Becky. Would recommend. I noticed prices have increased since reopened but it's worth it. They allow dogs in the bar area which... More

Visited The White Hart for my Birthday meal, I am local and have visited many times before. The food was good but the service was very slow for everything. We waited 30 min just for tap water!! There were only 4 of us but they didn't manage to bring all 4 meals out together for any of the 3 courses... More

The White Hart has just under gone a complete refurb due to a fire last year and what a stunning job they have done. The decor is modern, suave, colourful and comfortable. Nice and spacious. The food is fabulous with a varied menu. You would probably go for a special occasion as it can get pricey , but for that... More

Me and three friends visited the White Hart after the refurbishment following their fire just before Christmas. We were greeted warmly by the staff and Chris on the bar was very efficient and friendly throughout. He spoke about the different beers and was very pleasant. Our meal was very nice and we didn't have to wait long for it at... More
