A one-roomed pub with modern floorboards replacing what I am reliably informed was a warren of small rooms in days gone by, the White Hart is nevertheless a pleasant village pub, with a fireplace on the left-hand wall and comfortable chairs or pouffes at tables dotted randomly about. There were three real ales available when we visited: Tetleys Bitter, Black Sheep Bitter and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin. Not beers to set the pulse racing, perhaps, but impeccably served and in a relaxed atmosphere, can't be faulted. I'd have a bone to pick about the pretty awful 60s pop music on the CD player, but presumably that's to someone's taste so I'll leave it alone on this occasion.

Set in the village of Denby Dale, famous for its world record-breaking pies and an engineering marvel of a viaduct, The White Hart is a small traditional roadside pub perched invitingly on the bank of a steep junction, just back from the main road.

Internally, it’s one open plan space, but with a cosy corner to the left of the bar and a small wood panelled recess to the right. Traditional with a modern twist is probably the best way to describe the décor. There’s a cosy low ceiling with heavy beams, a laminated floor, heavy modern wallpapers and leather sofas alongside the wall settles and traditional tables and chairs. Walls are covered with art prints and old photos of the village, many featuring previous pie bakes. To the right of the bar there’s a pool table, and to the left the inevitable flat screen TV, above a decent looking real fire.

Three pumps at the bar, featuring Black Sheep Bitter, Tetley Bitter and Harviestoun ‘Bitter & Twisted’. The Harviestoun was in good nick and just the job after a two-hour walk. Bar staff were warm and welcoming, even helping me to carry drinks over to our table. Not particularly busy when we called Sunday afternoon, but all very relaxed with chatty regulars.

I wasn’t a huge fan last time I called, particularly regarding the décor, but things appeared to have subtly changed for the better (on several fronts). I came away this time thinking that the White Hart was a decent, friendly community local and definitely worth another visit next time I’m in the area.

The White Hart, dating back to the 1800s,
is in the heart of picturesque Denby Dale
Ideally placed at a convenient crossroads
between many local centres of population
and commerce. Denby Dale is famous for its iconic
Viaduct - constructed in the middle 1800s, and, since 1788,
for making the largest pies in the world!

Carl and Donna Brayshaw, your hosts at The White Hart,
invite you to sample traditional hand-pulled beers -
a signature feature, and on cold winter
nights the warm welcome of an open coal fire
