My husband and I enjoyed a pre-film meal, although we decided to choose from the main menu rather than the meal deal (although it looked delicious). Our meals were absolutely wonderful, so tasty and comprising local ingredients. Although we had booked for the bar we decided to eat in the cosy area next to the fire and the ambiance was super.
I would definitely recommend and will myself be dining there again soon.

Lovely, great value pre-cinema deal on my partner's birthday. I mentioned his birthday when booking online a month before. I reminded our waitress and she knew all about it. He was served a separate slate of mini macaroons and chocolate dipped strawberries with a piped chocolate message with his ordered sorbet for dessert. He was thrilled and so was I - lovely service and a fun film in the Barn cinema afterwards. Well done and thank you for a special evening.

My sister and I stayed at Dartington Hall for her birthday weekend and our meal at The White Hart was delicious. A lovely menu with locally sourced fare and great service. The 'Happy Birthday' dessert was a lovely touch and much appreciated. We will definitely be back!

I had previoisly booked a table as a meal deal with the cinema. However there was noone at the door to ask if we had booked a table and we had to find our reserved table. The young waitress did not ask us what sort of meal we were after and just handed us a menu. I said we were having the meal deal so she took them it back and told us our eating options. She nearly got our choices wrong when the food came. She did remember to ask if would like a drink but when asked to close the door as it had become draughty this was forgotten about. When an enquiry was made about dessert she did not really know what salted caramel was so an alternative choice was made by one person. However when the salted caramel came out for the other person it then became clear it was a torte. This resulted in wasting the ice cream as the torte was more in favour. It would seem that the waitresses need to be supervised more and they should find out more about the food they are serving. On the whole though a pleasant meal was had, presented weĺl

My sisters and me had a lovely lunch...it was special enough but not too fussy, all our meals were delicious and efforts were made to accommodate the special dietary needs some of us have. We were so surprised that the restaurant wasn't full up, however it was lovely for us the surrounding and warm decor a really a treat, so thank you for making our meal so memorable.

As always at the White Hart we had an excellent meal. On this occasion Sunday lunch. There were plenty of options on the menu apart from the Sunday roast choices.

As always the staff were friendly and efficient it is one of our favourite places to eat in the area.

My friend and I had eaten at the White Hart before while staying at Dartington Hall and were really looking forward to visiting again. We were certainly not disappointed. There didn't seem to be a full a la carte menu on offer on the Sunday evening but there was plenty of choice. I had beef and my friend had the fish dish and we were both very impressed, the food was beautifully cooked and presented with subtle combinations of flavours. The staff were efficient and friendly. The food takes a while to come but that is obviously because it is cooked to order and the atmosphere is so relaxed and comfortable that a slight wait is just a pleasant chance to chill

When I booked online the only option offered to me was a "high table". I had to phone the White Hart to find out what that was, it could have been a stool at the bar! It was in fact a tall table with tall chairs that had backs to them, a little different from the usual table and chairs and fairly comfortable. We enjoyed the excellent Sunday lunch before a concert in the Hall.

We had the pre-cinema meal deal. Whilst the food we had was delicious I would have preferred a wider choice as we were only offered 1 main course with 1 vegetarian option and a choice of cheesecake or ice cream for dessert.

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, but found the service a bit slow because there only seemed to be one waitress looking after many tables; this made us 10 minutes late for the cinema. Otherwise, a good evening.

The daily blackboard menu stated Hake as the fish of the day which we ordered. However salmon was served which of course is farmed and not to everyone's taste. We did point out this to the waitress who just said the blackboard was wrong. As we were on a pre- concert visit there was no time to take this further.

Tasty meals, although the portion size of mine was 'frugal' - just three small new potatoes with the very good fish. Good wine. Friendly and non-pushy service, but staff seemed rather stressed by the numbers of diners.
