A traditional village pub, the White Hart Inn has been welcoming diners since the 17th century and retains the same inviting olde-worlde charm today. Inside, exposed ceiling beams, a stone-built bar and wooden panelling draw attention to the venue’s history – notable medieval lodgers used to hang their banners here – while also creating a cosy and welcoming space that’s ideal for anything from relaxed drinks with friends to a celebratory family meal.
The menu at the White Hart celebrates classic, home-cooked British fare. The kitchen team knows the value of using fresh, high-quality ingredients, so the majority of the food used here is sourced locally; this includes local fish, meat and Devonshire dairy products. On the menu you’ll find a tempting selection of enticing starters that are bound to whet your appetite. Try the mouth-wateringly spicy chicken wings or the crispy fried whitebait, or perhaps you’ll opt for a steaming bowl of soup. The list of mains is just as impressive and includes hunter’s chicken, hand-battered cod, and indulgent vegetarian lasagne. You must try the tender sirloin or t-bone steak supplied by Philip Warren butcher. Your choice of steak will be accompanied by chips, onion rings, field mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. Every Wednesday pensioners can even enjoy a bountiful portion of fish and chips for just £5.95. At the weekend, the sumptuous Sunday lunch draws visitors from all over with its offering of beef, pork, turkey, a vegetarian option and all the trimmings. The White Hart’s bar is well-stocked with quality ale, local cider, beer and fine wine.
