    Had a lovely meal with friends last night. We all enjoyed our food. Service excellent as usual. Nice atmosphere in the bar area - they do have a conservatory with more seating, but we prefer the bar area which is a bit cosier.

    beautiful meal for valentines, service was amazing, working in hospitality myself i pick up on lots when being out for dinner but i honestly couldnt fault it! very yummy mediterranean flatbread for starters, i had the steakhouse burger with beef dripping chips for my main, and my boyfriend the sirloin with the same, only small let down was that they were out of fries and we were desparate to try the parmisan and garlic ones! but still a very lovely meal otherwise, steak was cooked to perfection and my burger was to die for! and finally shared possibly the nicest brownie and ice cream for dessert that i have ever had! very impressed and will definitely be back to try those fries! thankyou so much!

    Seated in the conservatory where the noise levels were very high. The food arrived cold. The cheesy pasta off the kids menu was linguine with cheese sprinkled on top… which cost £7!!

    Because the table next to us was overseated (more people turned up than on booking) the noise level was very high and at times was uncomfortable. The staff did tell them really there was too many on the table and they could move to another table in conservatory but they said they’d rather stay where they were. But it was just too cramped and noisy in a small space.

    Fabulous starter: chicken liver brûlée served with pickle and delicious charred sourdough. Classic burger with cheese, skinny fries and raw onion rings.. absolutely delicious. Baby back ribs with slaw and barbecued corn. All great. Always a warm welcome and lovely surroundings. Enjoyed a bottle of Chablis .. very acceptable.

    Officially the worst Sunday roast, beef was extremely dry, generous 3 pieces of meat and impossible to eat. It felt like it was cooked twice. Mash was soaking in gravy, so you would have to dip meat into mash with gravy. The same with the Yorkshire pudding - there was no chance to get gravy on it. Flat bread for starter had too much of balsamic vinegar on it, so wasnt enjoyed. Many thanks, Nadya

    We last visited The White Hart before the pandemic and had a great experience. Sadly, this time, despite the excellent front of house, the food was cold, greasy and unappetising. The skinny fries had somehow missed their crispy phase and flopped unappealingly limp onto the plate. The apple and pear crumble also missed the crumble stage - a few random sprinkles of cold cereal does not constitute a crumble. Did we complain? - of course not - we smiled nice and left but won't return.
