We went here for dinner on the recommendation of friends. It gets busy so booking is a good idea. The menu,both usual and on a specials board,is very extensive. The food was delicious, superbly prepared and the service was friendly and efficient. Good value. Would highly recommend.

This is such a popular place and reservations are a must. No wonder, the seafood is outstandingly good. Only issue: when ordering a steak rare, it shouldn't be medium rare, rare please. Other than that a splendid place

As regulars at the White Hart we decided to treat my visiting sister in law and husband on Saturday evening, it was, as it always is, a fab night out. The food was absolutely excellent as always. When choosing steak my husband normally only has fillet however because our brother in law went for a ribeye steak he thought he'd... More

Well worth making the effort to visit the White Hart. We went on a warm an sunny May Sunday to find the pub and garden very busy, but our pre-booked table was ready for us and the service was excellent. Our delicious Sunday roasts came with a huge variety of fresh vegetables. Very good value for money.

We popped in late afternoon on a Saturday on our way to The Steam Railway. We intended to have a couple of drinks and spend a pleasant hour or so. Every table was reserved for the evening which was good to see. The specials board looked good too. We have not eaten here for several years and may go back... More

Having been back on the Isle of Wight for just under a week, we made three more visits to this fantastic restaurant. All of which were just fantastic. On the first day I had a lovely spaghetti and meatballs dish, served with garlic ciabatta. It was so nice! This was followed by probably the nicest dessert I've ever had anywhere!... More

If you are looking for a place to eat whether it be lunch or dinner, the White Hart is the place to eat. The inn is pleasant and clean and the food is excellent, they cater for all tastes, they have a set menu if you so wish but their specials board always has very interesting and enticing options on...

I had the veggie beetroot lasagne with goat cheese, which had a lot of cheddar cheese, but couldn't taste the goat's. The pinkness denoted beetroot, but again couldn't see or taste it. Very odd. The side of cauli cheese was mainly nuked broccoli, and not that cheesy. One of our party ordered a fish/seafood lasagne, but spent most of the... More

We are sorry that you found your visit disappointing. Our Goats Cheese Lasagne does not contain any Cheddar Cheese and is layered with chunks of beetroot. It comes with a side order of chips, garlic bread or a side salad. It has been extremely popular and has received excellent feedback. You actually commented upon clearing how delicious it was! The...

This is no longer a pub ,but a restaurant with a small bar. The surroundings are fine and the food is good (not pub prices ,but not expensive either) When I say we had seven vegetables with the main course I think you get the idea. I am afraid that such a large amount at our age is off putting,... More

I popped in here for a drink recently. I has been many years since my last visit. The place has changed a great deal and has been upgraded and improved in terms of decor, layout and facilities. It used to be a little run down and dark inside but now it has been refurbished and opened up and it had... More
