White Hart

Ideally placed in the centre of this beautiful village opposite the church, the White Hart is a free house with origins dating back to the 1550s, set on a historic smugglers route (the River Rother is just 100 yards away). With Victorian additions, the long low roadside building you see today has a white clapboard exterior attractively decorated with hanging baskets and coach lamps.

Inside, this fine building has outstanding character and many original features such as a huge inglenook fireplace and timbers that give a fleeting glance into the pub’s historic past. The main oak-panelled bar attracts a real local crowd that is proud to support its many pub teams. For eating there is a refurbished more modern dining area at one end with paintings of the area by a local artist and an airy conservatory. The garden provides an additional space and has plenty of picnic tables, plus petanque and long-stretching views for further enjoyment.

Year on year selected for inclusion in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, local beers at the pump include guest ales that range from Rother Valley Level Best and Harveys Sussex Best Bitter to Oakham Ales JHB.  Beer is taken seriously here; a beer book is left lying around where regulars comment on the ales. The cooking can be easily summed up as lovely, fresh, simple and tasty. All ingredients are locally sourced by an exceptional chef and every dish is prepared to order.  All six guest bedrooms are on the first floor above the pub. Although not fancy, they have a nice comfortable ambience, furnished with traditional wooden furniture and the odd beam adds character.
