It started off shaky, the website and phones weren’t working properly. Managed to book online and fortunately it worked.

The bar was busy and only had one girl on but we were quickly seated and served by the waitress. I think they got busier than expected as there was a group of girls in celebrating and buying drinks one by one, bless them.

Waiting team were all great, the menu was very good and had a nice choice.

All food was served within a good time and was well presented and well cooked with a great range of flavours.

The atmosphere was perfect and we found the place well cared for and very clean.

Well worth the visit, we will be back.

Service could not have been more friendly and helpful. Really good choice of food in a fresh and smartly designed setting.

We visited the white hart on Saturday 29th of September. When we arrived the staff were friendly and happy to let us grab a drink at the bar before going to our table. The place was busy but had a nice atmosphere.
When we did sit down and look at the menu we struggled to choose as all the dishes sounded good.
We decided to go for the sharer starter of duck, this was shredded in front of us by the waitress. (nice touch).
For mains my wife had the steak and Stilton pie and I went for the lamb. When my meal came out I thought there was no way there would be enough food on the plate to fill me. I was happily proven wrong. The lamb was cooked perfectly and beautifully presented on the plate.
One of the nicest parts of the evening was that we never felt rushed. The time between courses gave us chance to chat and enjoy our evening. Yet we never managed to get to the bottom of a drink before being offered another.
All in all a great night in a lovely place.
If I had one request it would have to be put ‘rum your boat’ back on the cocktail menu :)

I just wanted to drop a line to share with you our disappointing experience in your Restaurant on Saturday 29th September.
I am doing so in the hope that our experience was a one off and not a sign
of things to come at The White Hart!

Having stayed at your hotel on at least three occasions and eaten in your restaurant on each occasion, we had always been impressed and very pleased, with the Hotel Rooms, food and the service.

t was because of this we chose to bring some new Friends to your restaurant for Dinner last night.

Unfortunately the evening can only be described as highly disappointing and a little embarrassing, considering how much we had raved about your Hotel and Restaurant

Whilst your Bar was very busy the Bar Staff were great and service was excellent, your restaurant service however was very poor and very slow, and looking round where we seated your restaurant area you didn’t even appear very busy!

The food
Starter was great Sharing Platter Shredded Duck....
But you forgot to bring the Garlic Bread we had ordered!
We never saw this at all...

Main Courses took a very long time to arrive and two of the four meals were awful.....

Mushroom Ravioli over cooked stodgy and all stuck together..

Venison Casserole was simply awful!
Over cooked and with dumplings which were dry and baked so hard they basically broke into crumb when you tried to eat them.
It was hard to find the venison under a pile of bitter red cabbage!

We sent the casserole back and then it took so long to come back.., everyone had finished eating their main courses .... and to make the situation worse the food was no better than the first attempt!

Deserts were lovely so no complaints here

The situation was then made worse when we tried to get our bill...
Despite trying to get the attention of your staff they seemed more intent on chatting to all their friends in the bar or standing outside the door chatting to other friends arriving or leaving....

My Friend who was experiencing The White Hart for the first time, commented the place felt more like a youth club than a restaurant!

Having eventually got the bill it was wrong and included Garlic Bread, which never arrived and the Casserole which the young lady who came to respond to our complaints(Manager?) had said would not be charged for...

After then having walked round your restaurant and bar again to find someone interested in serving us, I eventually managed to get the bill corrected ...paid and left

Simply very disappointing

We arrived quite late, and ordered close to restaurant closing time. Meal was presented beautifully, was substantial in quantity. The batter on the fish was crisp and light, fish was tasty and chips were lovely.
