Steve C left this review about The White Hart

The White Hart is a single room high ceiling Victorian pub on a corner plot so windows run down either side of the entrance. Inside, seating runs alongside these windows and on the rear wall is a bar counter that faces a couple of high tables that are sat between a couple of thin supporting columns. The bar counter was supporting premium keg alongside Beavertown Neck Oil and Fosters. Four of the six hand pumps were in operation drawing McMulllen’s AK Mild, IPA and Country alongside Rivertown Brewing’s Ernest. To the left of the bar is a kitchen hatch, the burgers were priced at around £11. The television was off with no signs of any live sport being advertised, but there was some background music playing. The service was polite, but this place is forgettable so I’ll probably walk past when next in the area.

Originally visited: 28th October 2020.

The pub was established around 1750 with this replacement constructed in about 1900, a commanding building in a none-too-inviting area, overlooking what in effect is a dual carriageway in part of a much-altered area, little for the better.
This was a bit of a scruffy place at the start of the decade with flyers in the windows. 'twas here that in 2014 that the One Mile End brewery, named after the pub's address, was established beneath the pub though has now moved to Tottenham; the pub was refurbished into what it is today. There are large plain glass picture windows with some vestigial etched glasswork to the entrances, hinting at what may once have been. The floor is modern pale wood with the overall colour scheme in pale grey, with a white ceiling sporting egg and dart cornicing with field panelling - it wouldn't look out of place in a grand house. Furniture is mainly large, scrubbed pine tables, some tables fashioned from old sewing machine treadles. Chairs are conventional and there's an orange suede banquette to the southern wall. The bar back is modern as is the pale pine bar. There are three cast iron structural columns with Corinthian capitals painted gold, though the shafts have been painted with weird fern fronds in varying blue hues. Lighting comes from chandeliers and sconce lights with five metal shaded lamps hanging over the bar - the interior looked more appealing a good three years ago, judging from the images on Google. There is though a fine Truman Hanbury Buxton mirror to the rear, advertising their imperial stout; this was probably once a Truman's house. There's little in the way of décor apart from some framed One Mile End posters and old cast iron street signs, with additional entertainment coming from a stereo which was a bit loud, certainly with the bass turned up to the point where with one speaker behind me, it was making my neck ache; there's further entertainment in the form of a quiz which takes place upstairs and oddly on a Thursday. Customers were a mixed bunch and there was a good ambience in here, a bit like being in a pub during normal times. It was noted that the lavs were modern with two cubicles.
Staff were friendly and helpful, dishing up just three ales with one strangely coming from the East London Brewery, Foundation bitter at a very reasonable £4.50 and very good it was too; a manly pint indeed. The two other ales were One Mile End's Juicy New England IPA and Boom Boom.
This is on balance a good pub. It's a shame that the interior has undergone so much alteration, but it makes for a very good stop if in the area.

Original Rating: 7.


A return visit the other night and although unchanged, there were at least three unused pumps then just Heritage Brewing Co's Sole Survivor which was enjoyable, but why are there no One Mile End Brewery beers and just one guest? Marked down accordingly.

Imposing Victorian building on a road junction, heftily modernised but retaining good character. There is one large room with scrubbed tables and wooden chairs, albeit with slightly dubious orange seating round the periphery. There is also an upstairs bar signed (not visited). As mentioned previously, originally the home of the One Mile End brewery before it relocated to Tottenham but it still carries their beers (mainly on keg) as well as a good range of draught ales from smaller breweries both local and from further afield. A friendly barman volunteered tasters and a CAMRA discount without being prompted.
