The White Hart
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
139 London Road, Holybourne, Alton, GU34 4EY
This cask Marque-accredited pub has an exceptional selection of real ale, lager and cider. Drinkers can enjoy a perfectly poured pint in the spacious beer garden, children can make use of the outdoor play area and those who fancy a bite to eat will love the option to dine al fresco. If the weather is a bit colder, head inside to the dining area, which is separate from the main bar, to tuck into something from the vast menu. The menu has a variety of vegetarian and gluten-free options alongside delicious pizzas and burgers. To start, indulge in the salt and pepper calamari, followed by truffle risotto or the Parmesan-crusted rack of lamb. Sunday lunch means traditional roasts such as topside of beef, root vegetable and nut roast and leg of lamb with all the trimmings. The children’s roast dinner is exceptionally good value for £8. The regularly changing specials board caters for many tastes and dietary requirements and allows head chef Lorne Robertson to demonstrate his finesse. The White Hart has six bedrooms for those who want to stay the night. With such beautiful countryside walks surrounding this traditional pub, you can plan a whole weekend away with The White Hart at the centre of your stay.
