Tris C left this review about The White Hart

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.

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.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The White Hart

Definitely worth a visit for their One Mile End beers, which unfortunately are brewed elsewhere now. I went for the One Mile End, Jazz Police, which was a unfined 6.3% pale. Also tried was the Cambrinus Deliverance, which was another good beer. Six pumps, with five ales and one cider.
The service was good and friendly.
