Blackthorn _ left this review about White Hart

A prominent pub/hotel situated right in the centre of town, it’s quite enormous inside extending some considerable way back as well as being spread over two floors.

The top floor at street level has a large bar counter down the right hand side, and it mostly open plan, although divided up in to a few different areas. The central area is on a slightly lower level, with rooms at each end being up a couple of steps. Flooring is predominantly wood strip with some chequered tiles around the bar and carpet in some areas. At the front is a smaller room reminiscent of an old hotel drawing room with it’s dark wood panelling on the walls and a small tiled fire-place, although these days it only contains a gas fire. The effect was spoilt somewhat though by a plasma stuck on the wall showing a football match, even if they had mounted it inside a heavy ornate gold frame. A similar frame hung in the window, but the “picture” was advertising a burger and drink deal. Around to the side was a lobby leading to the hotel reception, and this included a snug area with a couple of sofa’s.

Downstairs was a similar theme decor wise, and once again another room that might otherwise have been quite pleasant was spoilt by the somewhat intrusive football. Further back still was a projector screen showing the same match, although the image looked rather poor being quite dark. There was also a smaller bar counter here, although this was closed off on a recent Tuesday evening visit. Next to this was a pool table and behind this some patio doors leading to a terraced area with views of the car park.

Food wise, the menu looked to be a mass produced, laminated affair and was divided in to sections such as Burgers, Pub Classics, Pies, Steaks, etc., with most of the main courses being somewhere around the £7 mark, although some were also available as a "2 for £12” deal. There was also a small specials board listing a few other options, although none of them struck me as that special. My Chicken Pesto Linguine in a tomato and basil sauce with red onion and olives was ok as long as your expectations weren’t too high, and it was a generous portion.

Beers on tap were Nobby’s Biggus Dickus and Oakham’s JHB. A third pump for Doom Bar appeared to have run out. The solitary cider was Strongbow unfortunately. Overall I felt that this could be a decent pub, and probably was at one time, but it emphasis on televised sport and cheap food didn’t really do it for me.

There were 3 ales on, the usual suspects.
