Overall our first visit to the refurbished White Harte was a enjoyable one. The singer added a nice touch to the evening and the place felt lovely and welcoming. Only had fillet steak on the menu as sold out of ribeye. We liked the idea of steak on a stone, but would have liked a medley of veg instead of lettuce leaves. Chunky chips a bit under cooked for us.

Service fine. Not impressed with food. We eat out a lot. Starter pate was ok but bread had been buttered hot and was soggy by the time we got it. The chutney with it also tasted like apple sauce and was odd with it. We had steak which the menu said was on a stone. Not realising what that was, only when it appeared did I realise it was raw and I had to cook it myself. If I had been told when ordering it would be ok. Problem was by the time I finished cooking it, the rest of the meal was cold and my partner had nearly finished! Also those nearby got smoked out. The ‘side salad’ also turned out to be a bowl of lettuce. Overall just felt overpriced and people appearing not to care about giving the customer good food.

Absolutely amazing! Went on pizza night and had the best pizza and chunky chips EVER and we've tried a few! Will be going again soon. Thanks White Harte.

The food was of good quality however plates could have been warmed and the food was just not hot enough therefore went cold quickly. You cannot discriminate young families but it was distracting watching young children having free rein in the pub climbing on empty tables picking up salt and cutlery and running around by your table whilst your eating whist parents turned a blind eye to it and carried on chatting. Would I visit again? Yes probably after little ones are in bed and knowing the food is piping hot and warmed plates. Just being honest!

The food, service and decor is good. Personally I think it would benefit from some soft furnishings to improve warmth, comfort and noise. It was quiet when I visited ( a Weds) however during a previous visit on a Friday I could hardly hold a conversation above the noise. I will go back though because it is in a nice location and food is good.

Overall it was a shambles! We waited 40 mins for our food! We saw another table ordering after us and then get served before us only to find out it was the owner and his family, surely you would serve your paying customers first! The Caribbean Jerk chicken was bland the halloumi starter was poor value and when we asked for our bill we were over charged by one main! Not a very satisfying experience.

Food was good but service was slow. Circular table was great for a group but it was not very stable and drinks were spilt. Lunchtime set price for one, two or three courses was very convenient for splitting the group bill.
Food was excellent .

I took my Grandson and Granddaughter to the White Harte as its recently opened again and is close to where we live. The décor and surroundings were very nice and modern, the food menu although small had everything we liked and was beautifully cooked and presented. My chicken chasseur was fresh and very tasty, my Grandson had the fish and chips and my Granddaughter the pie of the day - we all cleared our plates and managed a pudding as well which were equally as good.

A bonus is the pub is dog friendly so we will be back again.

The bar was so noisy you couldn’t hear yourself speak. Ordered the steak on a stone for 3 of us and they only had 1 ribeye left at 6.15 on a Saturday so bit surprised by that. Bearing in mind we cooked the steaks ourselves which I have to say we’re superb, the chips were mediocre and not many and the ‘vegetables ‘ consisted of a few strands of red onion a some lettuce leaves!!! So costly at £26 for a fillet!! Cheese board 3 cheeses which should have been left out the fridge a bit longer so not a lot of flavour and fancy coloured crackers that were not crispy at £7.95 a head. Maybe next time I will try something else on the menu but I really think they’re missing a trick here. Too noisy too expensive for what you get and what’s with serving everything on a slate slab!! Just bring me some nice tasty cheese and crispy crackers!!! Saying that the staff were very keen and attentive but not in a hurry to go back.

Very pleasant night but more variety on main course menu is needed we thought few more fish dishes perhaps would be good but staff were very nice and my wife’s fillet steak on a stone was superb
