Bucking Fastard left this review about The White Hart

A large Victoria pub with many front doors,mostly locked and a side entrance with some pleasing detail and glazed tiles.It's all painted in dark colours so the original windows seem a bit lost .Inside it's large and mainly open plan,especially at the rear where there are ranks of dining style tables and flatscreens.However the front retains two seperate sections,with internal windows between them and the area at the far side does have a snug feel.The large bar also has a pool table to the right and a door to a urinal only bog,unusual these days.
The ale offerings were TT Landlord and Oakham Citra (rather tired,NBSS 2.5) while the keg options looked mainstream.The kitchen seems to be lunchtime only and the pub was filling with boozers at 4pm on a Friday.A beer garden is out the back,the soundtrack was very good and it felt comfortable for a few beers,but with some care could have scored quite a bit higher.

Originally constructed for Charrington’s in 1826 though obviously rebuilt later in the 19th century, to be occupied by Watney’s then a venue called Murphy’s Bar in the ‘90s before reverting to its current name by the early 2000s.
As mentioned, this is a very large opened out place with a fairly small central bar. Some walls display a little bare brick, thereafter it’s a mashup of dark patterned wallpaper. The floor’s rough bare boarded and there’s an interesting dark ceiling, possibly Anaglypta. Furniture is a mix of modern and traditional. The rear area features a lantern which may once have been over a billiard table and somewhat ironically, it’s now above a TV showing the pool which no one was watching. Lighting comes from a selection of 19th century-looking chandeliers as well as some shaded sconce lights and as mentioned, it’s a little gloomy with poor acoustics due to all the hard surfaces. There’s little in the way of décor aside from some mixed old prints, a display cabinet displaying crockery and a stuffed rabbit over a fireplace, used for storing decorative logs. There’s an attractive bar structure with glass lights hanging over the bar. There’s food of course but it’s now along the lines of sausage and mash or burgers. Customers were a mix of locals who are probably incomers to Stoke Newington, soaking up the music being played at an acceptable level.
There’s an appealing split level beer garden to the rear, but what’s not so attractive are the loos which are some of the worst I’ve ever encountered: graffiti, cracked and missing tiles and even a lump of quarry tile lying on the floor. There was a beer bottle in the kazi which I could see, despite the absence of a working light; when were they last inspected?
Ales: the pub’s website shows five pumps delivering Pride, Brakspear’s Bitter, Sambrook’s Wandle, London Fields Hackney Hopster and Redemption’s Trinity. The selection is now down to four pumps, three with reversed clips, thereafter just Sussex Best at the ‘new normal’ price of £4.80 though in decent nick and served by friendly staff.
Overall, this place isn’t too bad but there are certainly better pubs in N16. It’s worth popping in but a better selection of ale – perhaps reverting to what’s shown on the website, minus the Pride – and getting the builders in to remodel the lavs would get the score up.

A big lump of a pub opened out inside absolutely full up on a bank holiday Sunday lunchtime with live football being on probably swelling the numbers. Four of Five Handpumps were in use with a couple of Ciders along with Robinsons Dizzy Blonde and Adnams Ghost Ship. Being so busy it was difficult to get a real feel for the pub but I agree with PSM below, the two tier beer garden was very nice indeed.I would try it here again.
