    Excellent Sunday lunch with very helpful staff. Really nice roast pork - worth paying extra for the sage + onion stuffing.

    Having eaten at the White Hart in the past we felt confident about booking for ourselves and friends. It has totally changed, and not for the better unfortunately.

    A birthday family meal and our first visit with the new updated menu. The food was excellent and good value but we felt the service could have been more attentive.As this was a birthday meal booking we assumed that this would be acknowledged by the staff but it was not. A much improved menu and we shall make a return visit.

    Went for Sunday lunch. The starters and puddings were spectacular though slightly disappointed with the Sunday roast. We will re visit on another day of the week though as very impressed with the location and service.

    If you just keep on going through Henfield workout stopping then you are missing a gem. Booking was easy through the website receiving a prompt confirmation and subsequently a reminder. The car park is a tight turn from the high street but it is strictly one way so no fear of meeting anything coming the other way. Very much a country pub feel with a very pleasing relaxed interior. We went for lunch and it was quiet. However there was a good selection on the menu and the service was very friendly and attentive. We didn't have to wait long for our meals and we all (3 of us) enjoyed our food. Having popped in for a drink a couple of years ago we regret not coming for food sooner. Thoroughly recommend and we will be back.

    We were probably unlucky, but it was a new chef on his or her first day. The menu was very limited, without many of the options quoted on the website. However, the food was perfectly fine, the service was passable, if not first class, and we had an enjoyable evening.

    Booked after reviewing the menu online. We’re told we had to order asap because the kitchen was closing, before we had even been seated. Given a menu which had hardly any options on it - apparently they only had one chef and so couldn’t serve what they advertised on line. Only 2 other couple in the pub, so atmosphere was not great. Didn’t fancy sausage and mash, fish and chips or vegetarian pasta so left without eating and went elsewhere

    Very disappointed with service last night, weren’t offered menus on arrival, no one came to take drinks order had been there an hour at this point, had to ask twice for food menus which was greeted with bad attitude, had to go and ask for the food we wanted again met with bad attitude from staff. Been many times and always had good experiences but this time was just awful!! The tall young male with braces was the only positive member of staff the whole evening!

    Booked at two hours notice but was made welcome. We were told that the menu was limited because only one chef was on, so the menu downloaded that day from the website was not applicable. However, the food we got was excellent. I would be happy to go back if in the area again.

    Our meal was nice, though nothing special, my husband had hoped for a steak but that was not on the menu. The dessert was a bit disappointing as the menu stated that it would come (cheesecake) with blueberries, which were missing. Apart from that, the staff were really nice and not too attentive. lol We have been there many times before and always enjoyed it.

    Took my 2 grandchildren here for lunch. They were very happy with their children’s size portion of fish and chips ( which would have been enough for me) and my Moules were excellent. Staff were very attentive and service speedy. Definitely be returning soon.

    It was a lovely venue but glad had an early evening booking as they had a group on as we finished main course and could hear ourselves talking. The food was excellent and staff outstanding. But would have preferred no group as idea of meal out with friends is the social chat.

    The roast was excellent, the service was good, the pub is really pretty inside with a warm atmosphere. It was Mother’s Day and there were several elderly Mums there, so the music could have been a bit less noisy. Overall, a really lovely lunch.
