We booked Sunday lunch at The White Hart for the first time and were not disappointed. We started with one of their 33 gins that they have on offer which was a new name for us and it was a pleasant surprise. We were greeted by friendly staff who could not be faulted in any way. The restaurant has a...

I booked a table for our family to celebrate my wife's birthday recently. The restaurant wasn't busy and having eaten here a few times before, we were looking forward to our evening. Unfortunately, bread and olives took over half an hour to arrive, the champagne was flat and the service, although friendly, was the slowest I've experienced here. I really...
