A great meal, in a wonderful pub. Good wine list, and very attentive staff. The menu is simple, but delicious and the steaks are awesome! They deserve all the praise they get.

Excellent food good but there was a long wait for it and we were the only table there on a very quiet weekday lunchtime.
We sat in the Conservatory which was very cold.

The pub was lovely.

The staff were very friendly & helpful.

The food was amazing.

However, the noise level was deafening; I couldn't hear my own dining companions across the table. It was like being in a nightclub, it was horrible! It's a real shame as I'd love to go there again. Maybe on a wet Tuesday lunchtime. Or eating in the car.

Lovely place. Very friendly staff. Food was delicious and they even brought out more of the gravy when we asked. If one little gripe, the roasties were dry and felt like they’d been sitting a while. Not crispy/fluffy but as I say, a small thing. Will be back, maybe earlier in the day next time.

The squid was delicious and perfectly cooked and the fillet steaks we had were the best we had eaten for many years. They were perfectly cooked to our liking, very tender and really tasty. We did not have a desert as we were full but had coffees which unfortunately were lukewarm. Nevertheless the meal made a pleasant end to my birthday. Thank you.

We took a guest for an early evening meal. The choice of menu was just right, catering for all taste. The service was attentive, polite and efficient. The wine was reasonably priced and very good. The food was excellent, although we still can't work out how the chips were cooked. The dessert was a delight (we'd already tried it on Mothering Sunday!). The ambience is much better now that the walls are no longer white and the bill was very acceptable. Well done to all.

The White Hart has been our local since 1976. We have seen many changes over the years. In our view, it's never been better. Excellent food, very attentive service and very attractive surroundings. My 96 year old mother in law (who is quite critical in a constructive way) thoroughly enjoyed her Mother's Day lunch. She was especially grateful that they now have Harvey's Best Bitter on tap even though it is served very cold. Well done everyone at the White Hart.

Had an issue with our main course,
but the Manager dealt with it in a very professional and fair manner.
Perhaps we should have tried one of the steaks, my daughter and son in law are regulars and had no hesitation in recommending the range of steaks on offer.
Will certainly try it again.

We had a superb Sunday lunch at the White Hart. I enjoyed the roast beef and my guest had the vegetarian parcel. Both were absolutely fantastic. We had a table opposite a roaring fire which added to the experience. The service was attentive without being overbearing. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Food excellent, noise level high as you would expect on a Saturday. Everything was great except the service. As best we could tell there were only two waiters for an extremely packed Saturday night. A Management issue I suppose.

We appreciate you taking the time to post a review of your experience with us. Unfortunately on the evening you visited we experienced staff sickness which left us slightly understaffed. Hopefully your meal was to your satisfaction... Hope to see you again soon.
