Malden man left this review about White Hart Pub

This is cosy old coaching inn with a village pub character situated a short hop from Cranleigh's main street. Externally the first floor is tile hung in the local style, inside there is a low black and white beamed ceiling and lower wood wainscoted walls with white roughcast at the upper level. There a three areas around the main bar, the traditional public bar has darts, pool and a TV which had the football showing on Sunday lunchtime. The main bar area had a real log fire on the go, seriously welcome on a cold and miserable day, regular farmhouse style seating and framed country style prints on the walls. Various horse related paraphernalia hangs from the ceiling including bridles and stirrups and the ceiling beams are host to a vast number of pump clips from the changing range of handpulled beers.
At the end of this room you can walk through to another area where there is a bar billiards table.
A restaurant to the rear is a more formal and modern add-on, the décor at odds to the feel of the pub, I did eat here unusually for me but preferred the atmosphere and the log fire in the bar so stayed there. The Sunday roast of beef was very good, thick slices of medium rare meat with home made Yorkshire pud, well worth the £12.50 tag.
I believe there is somewhere a bit of a beer garden but it really wasn't the weather.
Four handpumps, Young's Bitter, Fuller's Chiswick, Tillingbourne Falls Gold (very good) and McEwan's IPA.....never seen that before.
This is a very nice pub indeed, welcoming and cosy on a cold day. I would have no hesitation in returning.
The pub is still technically an Inn, there are a number of en-suite rooms upstairs.
