Meal was lovely, however it was extremely cold, we kept our coats on for the whole duration. There was a radiator next to us but it was switched off.

The food was delicious and superbly presented. Two of our party were gluten free and that presented no problem. We were slightly disappointed at the lack of choice but overall enjoyed our evening.

Food was amazing, a beautiful pub inside and out. We had to keep trying to catch someones attention for service and waited quite some time for first drinks order and food order to be taken, but once ordered (about 40 minutes we had been sat there) it was all delicious. Would definitely go again.

An amazing venue for a great meal. Bar was well stocked and whilst the menu was reduced, the choices were diverse. Very accommodating team helping to make amendments for one member of our fussy party. Wish more of these type pubs existed! Will definitely be back

Wonderful evening at The White Hart. Small country pub with a great atmosphere. Superb food and service. Gives me great faith in our young professionals as the chef is only 26 and the manageress and her assistant are 18 & 19. They were brilliant. Definitely coming back to sample that wonderful food again.

Enjoyable Sunday roast with excellent quality beef and trimmings with good portions. Only criticism was the food could have been hotter. Nice local ale and Cornish cider. Serving staff very attentive and helpful.

What a wonderful place - great staff that couldn’t do enough to make us happy
Is not said my friend is having chemo and it’s lucky she’s even here and can finally eat - she ate every single morsel of the wonderful food !!!!
I’d asked for a table that was quiet as my friend is deaf and just wouldn’t have been able to hear me had it been one of those places with loud blaring music and everyone shouting to be heard

We we given a lovely taken by the wood stove in the corner and the service and ambience was just perfect.
My best wishes to the new chef and to one who has just left to work at the other branch in Kent - both master chefs who know how to make proper real gravy and make food taste like you are royalty !
Just wonderful - we’ll be back !!!!

Utterly utterly impeccable service, food, ambiance...everything!!! The most delicious food I’ve ever eaten, fully customised to cater to my gluten/dairy/soy/onion allergy too. The staff were so knowledgable about ingredients and the chef was so so accommodating. The specials were fabulous too - fresh venison from one of the waitresses farms! All super fresh, super yummy, very funny. Fab evening all around. Very good price point too!!
