Had a really lovely evening here, with amazing service and excellent food. Having returned to their usual fantastic level in every regard, we will be heading back to The White Hart regularly again.
We had a lovely evening at the White Hart with friends. There was quite a bit of noise from the bar but that was unusual when we have dined here before it has not been noisy. Parking is a bit tricky so you may want to leave a bit of time to find a parking spot on busy evenings like Friday and Saturday. I don't know what it is like during the day.
Great food and service. We had soft shell crab and gallons to start with steak and halibut for main course. The wine recommendations were great and the service attentive and fun!
Food was good, and some good value menu options, but did lack atmosphere and ambience
We had an excellent lunch, food was plentiful and good value for money. The staff were exceptionally helpful without being intrusive and made us all feel very welcome. Thank you
Lunch with a good pal. Just as well we weren’t short of conversation as there was no ambience at all. Apparently the music was on but we couldn’t hear it. And there was no-one else eating, bar one couple and we could hear their every word! We asked to turn up the music a little which improved matters.
The food was very good and the service good, until the end when no-one came by in a while meaning we had to go and find someone in order to pay the bill.
We usually love The White Hart, and are regular diners here (about twice a month since we moved to Welwyn 6mths ago). However, this Sunday we were very disappointed with the service, and frosty welcome we received because we were 10mins late (which I rang to apologise for before we arrived).
My family had come for the weekend (some from Dubai, some from Scotland) and they were shocked at the unfriendliness of the staff at The White Hart on Sunday. As usual, the food was very good but the whole experience was tarnished by the lack of welcome and general disinterest of the staff in serving us.
Had a lovely evening out with friends, food great, drinks flowing and the majority of the staff were very welcoming and friendly, although there was one young lady (blonde long hair) who wasn't particularly happy looking, however, it didn't spoil our evening.
We had a lovely dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My husband was running a half marathon the next morning so we went early (6pm), which meant it was very quiet. By the time we left it was full and there was a nice atmosphere. The staff were welcoming and attentive. Just before we left they brought a couple of little treats for us wishing us a happy anniversary.
Great lunch with friends not seen for 30 years !
I’ve been in the hospitality business for 40 years and a qualified chef ! meal and service was 1st class .
Really excellent quality and taste - the menu was creative, and service was welcoming and friendly. We had the jackfruit tacos, soft shell crab tacos, and battered haloumi, all were very flavorful with a twist - we loved everything, including the decor and atmosphere!
Excellent Sunday lunch. Service very good and nice decor.
Fabulous food, very friendly helpful service - a delight!
As with previous occasions at the White Hart the service was great, the menu had plenty to choose from and the cost reasonable. It is one of our favourite local places to dine.
As always good and service very good, doesn't disappoint.
This was our first visit to The White Hart although we have previously used The Tilbury in Datchworth. The food was original and very tasty. the service was excellent and friendly. The restaurant itself was retains the feel of the original coach house which we particularly liked.
As always wonderful welcome and service here. And they created a different dish for my friend based on the cod from the set menu.
Shows every dish is freshly created for each customer. We shall return. Great to live around the corner from such a splendid lunch spot.
Very nice, would definitely recommend! Very friendly staff and a lovely venue.
I had been told how good The White Hart was for lunch by several different people. So I booked a table for Mother's Day. After one mouthful of the Roast Lamb I decided that we would be back.
The service was friendly without becoming intrusive, professional and informative and despite the fact it was so busy the waiters gave the impression that they had as much time for us as we needed. Full marks.
It's a good sign when you cannot decide what to have. In fact I didn't know what I would choose until I heard myself telling the waiter. I think the only 'complaint' we had was that my mother requested a smaller portion of the sticky toffee pudding and when it came it didn't look very small! Somehow or other she managed to eat every last bit of it.
So yes we'll be back.
Lovely Mother’s Day!
All round really good, we were next to a large and quite noisy group that made it difficult to talk amongst ourselves but when they left it was great. Good food. Good service. Will go back.
Lovely Birthday meal at the White Hart .
The food was delicious and the service was spot on , friendly staff were on hand but in the background waiting for you to need anything - great . We will be back
Excellent beer, food & wine. Couldn't have asked for more.
Six girls for breakfast all happy that’s got to be a record outstanding food and service

Lovely Sunday lunch, excellent service from Lev, will definitely be back!!
Wonderful short stay at the White Hart with family. Pleasant, calm atmosphere, excellent dinner, comfortable room, super breakfast. The staff were friendly & efficient & nothing was too much trouble.
Another great meal in The White Hart - try the Jackfruit Tacos - amazing even if you're not a vegetarian
Loved everything about The White Hart, service was second to none.
First time eating here, food was great, service brilliant, especially Adam.
This restaurant is superb! From the moment we walked in we got superlative service and the food and drink was of the highest quality. They have a marvellous Armagnac as well!
10 out of 10 - we’re going back for Sunday lunch!
Booked for the Valentines set menu.
Great service right from the start. A call from the restaurant checking I knew about the set menu.
Staff on the night were friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and drinks.
Quality and presentation of the food was excellent, all set in a fantastic surroundings.
Great food, tasty cocktails and good atmosphere. Good value for money and friendly staff.
Lovely location and amazing food. We went for my husband's birthday and it was really special. Service really friendly too.
Best Sunday lunch I have had,roast beef was outstanding.interesting talk about the wine we ordered aswell.
Delighted to renew our acquaintance with the White Hart which filled in admirably for the Tilbury as it is closed on Mondays. Great start to the week courtesy of this late seasonal Board room lunch for 5 hungry people.
Excellent lunch, with a good menu. Very tasty and food well presented.
Only small problem was that one of our party was slightly disabled and does not walk very well. The steps down to the restaurant were a challenge. Don't know if with such an old property you are able to offer an easier access to the restaurant?
Enjoyed the visit, and will come again.
Beautiful pub, awesome menu with something a bit different
