Sunday Lunch
Sitting in the middle of stunning Derbyshire countryside, The White Hart Inn is a classic English inn given a swirl of modernity thanks to a recent
renovation. Reclaimed brick and stone walls with solid oak beams mean the original character of the building has stayed intact but expect
plenty of 21st century touches. Bedrooms feature stylish fabrics with on­-trend wallpapers, crisp white bed linens and chic scatter cushions.
Downstairs the welcoming wood­-panelled bar serves real ales, cocktails and everything in between while the restaurant dishes up homemade meals using locally ­sourced ingredients.

First time out since March and was a little worried due to the current situation but there was no need to be worried at all. All well set out and staff were fantastic.

We stayed over night at the hotel and had the dinner bed and breakfast deal. 3 courses and a bottle of wine. Fab deal, food amazing just paid extra £4 for steak which was worth it! We where stuffed! Breakfast in morning was fantastic too! Staff friendly and a nice atmosphere lovely seating areas outside too 😀 would definitely come again and highly recommended. Thank you.

We have been coming to the White Hart for a number of years now and have always had a lovely meal.
However our visit on this occasion was a little below your usual standards.
I t all semt a little chaotic,service to be acknowledged at the bar and also to be shown to our table was very slow.And the food for the 3 of us was also below your normal standard
Hopefully it was just a one off.

We visited very early on a Friday evening and were the only diners though trade did pick up as the evening went on.
The restaurant is clean, comfortable and in fantastic rural location.
The staff were really friendly and our food was served promptly. The food was really well cooked and clearly made with quality ingredients.
The only down side was that the service was a little poor. We waited too long for the order to be taken, there was no check back and as a result we never got to ask for any sauces or condiments. We were not offered the chance to order a second drink despite our glasses being empty when food was served. We ordered got drinks with our desert but they never arrived.

Great location, great food, friendly staff.

Food was really lovely and very good value. Service was poor though as waiting for food for a very long time and other tables were being served before us even though they’d arrived after us. The scheduling of food clearly needs working on. It may have just been a very busy Fathers Day I’m not sure

Family meal booked for a birthday celebration plus Fathers Day on same day. Limited Sunday menu. Food was ok, beef was very tough and chewy and cost overall was very expensive. When we came to pay the bill we had to inform staff about a number of drinks that had been added to our bill that weren’t ours (over £20 worth!) Overall, lovely place and decor, but food overpriced and disappointed overall. I could have had same quality at a much cheaper price at Toby Carvery.

Easy to book and was lovely to receive a email double checking the booking. Arrived early but was happy to seat us, was given plenty of time to look at the menu and the lady even offered side which wasn’t on the menu and double check with the chef if he could do them (onion rings), food was delicious and hot, even got a surprise treat as it was my birthday with a free happy birthday chocolate moose (which I shared with friends)

The food was delicious, my only problem is that if you want to sit and chill all afternoon, the chairs are a bit hard except for the ones with the sofas but they are always booked

I have been here many times for food and drinks and had a lovely time no and complaints or faults

However the bottomless brunch exprience yesterday was disappointing, service was slow, the drinks was lacking alcohol despite them being "cocktails" and the full english breakfast we all had was bland and dry.
the server appeared to avoid eye contact for further drinks after maybe 2 rounds of "cocktails" leading us having to que up at the bar for drinks. which mentioned above were certainly not the same cocktails being made for the other paying guests.
at 1 stage we were quing at the bar for atleast 15minutes then wait a further 8minutes for our drinks which is a fair enough if there wasnt a 2hour limit on the bottomless brunch.

we wouldnt recommend the bottomless brunch and it was not worth the £25 each we paid.

we arrived expecting a lovely treat and left very deflated.

Had the date night meal for two; two stone baked pizzas, two sides and a sharing dessert, all for £32. The food was fantastic, had a Farmhouse and Peking pizza with dough balls and hand cut chips, then a sharing cookie to finish (which was a bit sickly). Other than that, the meal was great. Service was very attentive and the atmosphere was brilliant. Fantastic value for money and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I would'nt recommend for the food at the moment, sorry. We have always loved the food but not so much this time, sorry. I had haddock and chips. The haddock was very very greasy and the chips had been fried a while beforehand and kept warm. My Dad had crumble for pudding and the cast iron pan was so hot he almost burnt his hands. I do feel that it has gone down a little in quality, sorry.

We often visit on a Sunday, good food and great value for 2 courses. Service seemed slower than usual this week, we dined at 5.20 (we were late for a 5pm booking I did ring to say and staff were great about it) everyone had eaten. I think it’s better to visit slightly earlier.

We usually love the White Hart and look forward to visiting but on this occasion we were disappointed. The staff are very good and the food is tasty but we had to send back a Sunday lunch as the Yorkshire pudding was cold. The meal was returned but the rest of the it was also barely warm. It was a shame as the starters of breaded prawns were delicious.

As an assistance dog user, I was very disappointed to be told I wasn’t allowed to eat in the main restaurant and that “dogs” have to stay in the bar side. I have never been duscrinated against previously in one of their sister venues before so this was a bit of a shock, I also didn’t appreciate a “pet dog” having a barking fit at my well behaved dog under the table by my feet.

As our visit was for my mothers 83rd birthday, this wasn’t what I expected or should have had to accept.

The food was quite average, and it wasn’t particularly hot. The waiting staff however were friendly bringing my dog water and a treat.

After visiting previously for a drink sitting in the beautiful gardens, I was in no doubt that this is where to treat mum for her birthday.

I will think twice before visiting any of these related venues in the future.

The food was nice but the service was poor, food arrived but no cutlery, had to ask twice whilst food was getting cold. Roast dinners served with no roast potatoes despite them being listed on menu, nobody asked during the meal how the food was. Great shame.

Easy to book on-line, friendly greeting, dog friendly (staff provided dog chews!).
Relaxing atmosphere, not rushed.
Good choice on the menu & specials board.
Service efficient & wait for food minimal.
Presentation excellent & quality very good.
Overall very enjoyable meal experience.
Noticed as we were leaving that staff were preparing to serve late comers despite them arriving well after last orders for food - nice to see.

Food was excellent, fantastic Sunday lunch, my mum has a small appetite and they were very accommodating at making a smaller lunch for her. I would definitely recommend this restaurant
